When you define your hardware, keep the following points in mind about the following SAB devices:

Network Sensors (Network Duct Sensors, Network Zone Sensors, and Network CO2 Sensors)

During the System Selection process, the Temperature Sensor functions can be defaulted to use Network Sensors based on naming and signal preference settings. The points do not count towards the Hardware Slot Summary calculation. The Network Sensor shows up as an SA Bus device in the Network Settings tab of the Hardware Definition dialog box (where you can set the address). The wireless sensor begins with address 199 and increments up as you add new wireless sensors (for example 199, 200, 201, and so on). Each address listed for a NetSensor device must match the DIP Switch setting for the installed sensor. Refer to the device documentation for further details.

Wireless Sensors

Wireless Sensors are considered Network Zone Sensor SA Bus devices in the tool. A Wireless Sensor uses the same address and configuration options as the Network Zone Sensor (NetZoneSensor).

Wireless Refrigerator/Freezer Temperature Transmitter and Probe Assemblies

The Wireless Refrigerator/Freezer Temperature Transmitter and Probe Assemblies are considered Network Zone Sensor SA Bus devices in the tool. The transmitter and probe assembly uses the same address and configuration options as the Network Zone Sensor (NetZoneSensor); however, you can monitor the temperature of up to four coolers, four freezers, or a combination of both.

Network VSDs

During the System Selection process, the key points for variable speed fans or pumps (also referred to as Variable Speed Drives [VSDs] or Variable Frequency Drives [VFDs]) can be defaulted to use Network VSDs based on naming and signal preference settings. The points do not count towards the Hardware Slot Summary calculation. The Network VSD shows up as an SA Bus device in Network Settings tab of the Hardware Definition dialog box (where you can set the address).

Note: You also can change the signal type of the VSD points after system selection. Then the VSD is automatically added to the hardware.

VAV Box Controller Hardware for Integrated Flow and Integrated Actuators

The VAV Box Controller hardware sets Integrated Digital Velocity Pressure and the Supply Damper Actuator. The points show up in the System Requires column of the Hardware Slot Summary table (located on the Controller Selection tab). During the Point Assignment setup, these points are automatically assigned to the correct slots in the VAV Box Controller.
