The Optional Features selections provide Network Input modules for Supervisory system interfaces to override the main application’s sequence of operation through connections to the appropriate Setpoint/Miscellaneous modules or State Generators.

The selection choices for Optional Features are:

  • Smoke Control Support (UL-864-UUKL): This option adds the Emergency Mode Network Input and the Smoke Control Sequencing for UL-864-UUKL State Generator module. In the State Selection Table, you can create state values for each Output Controller to provide normal control, pressurize, depressurize, purge, or shutdown. For example, if the Emergency Mode Network Input is set to shutdown, you can set all of the Output Controller states to the desired condition in the State Selection Table.

  • Unit Enable: This option determines whether the application operates based on the Network Input (BV). If Unit Enable Switch is selected in the Misc (UV) section, then when the Network Input does not have a valid command from the network, it is considered unreliable (and the unit is enabled). If both BI and BV are selected, the state of both must be Enable for the unit to operate (that is, either input can be in a shutdown state to cause the unit to stop).

  • Power Fail Restart Logic: This feature is available as part of the Unit Enable Determination State Generator module. When this option is selected, after a restart (power cycle, application transfer to the controller, or manual restart command), the application is held in the shutdown state for the Power Fail Restart Time (default = 60 seconds).

  • Energy Hold Off: This option allows the unit to shut down based on the energy hold off Network Input. If Energy Hold Off Switch is selected in the Misc (UV) section, then the Network Input or the Hardware Input (BI) can activate the mode. This feature is typically used to shut down the temperature and airflow control when a window or loading door is open (for example, a window switch).

  • Network Warmup-Cooldown Support: This feature starts the unit ventilator and operates in a heating only mode until the warm-up is cancelled or the occupied temperature is reached. The unit ventilator outdoor air dampers are closed during warm-up operation.

  • Zone Low Limit Support: This feature is typically used with the Energy Hold Off feature to cycle heating On when the temperature falls below a low limit.

  • Summer-Winter Compensation Setpoint Shift: This option allows the zone setpoints to be automatically adjusted based on the outdoor air temperature. This feature is often used for entry zones, such as an atrium, that feel comfortable at warmer or cooler temperatures because occupants usually enter from much warmer or cooler conditions. For example, if the outdoor air temperature is 20 °F, the atrium temperature may be kept at 65 °F rather than 69 °F because occupants wear heavier clothing as they come in from or go to the outdoors.
