      What is a 756 and what is its purpose?

      The 756 is a Smoke Alarm Isolation Unit compatible with Clipsal Smoke Detectors only. The unit provides a set of isolated, normally open (N.O.) and normally closed (N.C.), changeover contacts permitting auxiliary devices such as sirens, strobes and/or security systems to be activated when the new 755 Smoke Alarm is in the alarm state.
      The 756 may be used to provide connection of the 755 Smoke Alarm output to an external siren or strobe. It may also be used as an interface to Clipsal C-Bus®, Clipsal HomeSafe Security Systems, emergency lighting or other service.
      The 756 is capable of operating correctly in the absence of mains supply and derives its power from the smoke alarm only when the smoke alarm is in the alarm state.

      What is displayed for peak current on the Silcon display when the 6 and ^ keys are pressed?

      The peak output current that is displayed is occurring at the time the buttons are pressed. It does not store any previous values.

      What is the Operating Humidity Range for the S31LCDA Load Correction Device ?

       The Operating Humidity Range is 5 - 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.

      How many smoke alarms can be connected to a single 756 isolation unit?

      Can the memory of a M221 logic controller be expanded?

      The memory of M221 cannot be expanded. The M221 has the following types of memory:

      RAM: 512 Kbyte, of which 256 Kbyte available for the application. It is used to execute the application and contains data

      Flash: 1.5 Mbyte, of which 256 Kbyte is used to backup the user application and data in case of power outage. It is used to save the application

      The SD card is only used to transfer the application or update the firmware

      Does the ATV312 have safe torque off?

      To be a true Safe Torque Off (STO) the drive must enable the implementation of applications up to safety Category 3 according to standard EN 954-1.  The ATV312 does not meet this standard but can be programmed to allow a freewheel stop.  

      If STO is required, see the ATV32, ATV61 or ATV71 drives.

      Does third-party equipment exist to test the AFCI to determine that it is functioning properly?

      Product Line:
      Circuit Breakers
      QO and Homeline
      AFI and AFCI

      Environment:
      Electrical Distribution Equipment

      Resolution:
      No. So-called AFCI ``testers`` are on the market, but they are not UL listed for testing the function of an AFI circuit breaker. UL 1436 refers to them as ``indicators`` rather than testers, and Square D does not endorse them or recommend their use. They are subject to error in the form of giving a false negative result.

      The UL approved method of testing an AFCI circuit breaker is to press the push-to-test button when installed in an energized load center or panel. This test injects a signal into the AFCI sensor that looks like an arc to the AFCI. A properly functioning AFCI will trip when the test button is pushed.

      Paragraph 31.8.1 of the UL 1436 standard requires the AFCI Indicator markings or instructions to effectively state that the test button on the AFCI circuit breaker demonstrates proper operation.

      Environment:
      Data Center Cooling
       
      Cause:
       
      Resolution:
      Stay-brite 8 (SB8) is chemically suitable for a copper to stainless joint , however not for our commercial equipment.  Its make up is 94% tin 6% silver which makes it a high temperature solder, not a brazing material.  A Silver commercial joint is a stronger joint to withstand systems vibrations and does not "flow" like solder. commercial can ribbon into the piping, causing restrictions and other operational issues such as shearing (piping being pushed out of the fitting with commercial still attached to both surfaces) and ultimate decoupling of the joint.

      Commercial is a solder and our connections need to be brazed. commercial is liquid at 535ºF. Brazing takes place at temperatures above 800ºF. Soldering takes place at temperatures below 800ºF, therefore, using commercial is not brazing. 

      NOTE: If any contractor suggests its use, it is to be denied.

      How do I cold start the Matrix-UPS?


      Issue

      How do I start up a Matrix UPS on battery (cold start)?


      Product Line

      Matrix UPS


      Environment

      All serial ranges


      Cause

      A UPS can be codlstarted to provide battery power to equipment or as a troubleshooting step.


      Resolution


      The Matrix-UPS can be cold started through the LCD display screen, which is located on the front of the Matrix-UPS EU (Electronics Unit). When the dual pole input circuit breaker is moved to the ON position, this action turns the Matrix-UPS logic on. When the UPS Control menu on the LCD shows the 'Cold Start UPS' option, the unit is not able to go on line. That is, the unit will be operating on battery because it does not sense good utility voltage. After cold starting, the output frequency will always be 60 Hz on the North American, Worldwide, and Japanese models. Although the unit can be cold started, the Matrix-UPS is not intended for use as a portable power source.



      How do I get Modsoft to open up to full screen display while I try to run it under WIN 2000?

      The command to get Modsoft to change window size is ALT+<ENTER>; however Modsoft is not supported under WIN 2000. Users may try running the application under it; however successful operation cannot be guaranteed. One of the common problems is Modsoft will not open up to full screen. Regrettably there is no means to resolve this issue other than to reinstall the software under a supported OS, such as WIN 95, WIN 98 or DOS.

      What are your Cooling Product Energy efficiency rating (EER)?
       
      Product line:
      All Units.
       
      Environment:
      All Serial Numbers.
       
      Cause:
      Install
       
      Resolution:
      Energy efficiency rating (EER) or coefficient of performance (COP),  is a measure to assess heat pumps and air conditioners.  The Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of a particular cooling device is the ratio of output cooling (in Btu/hr) to input electrical power (in watts) at a given operating point. EER is generally calculated using a 95F outside temp and an inside (actually return air) temp of 80F and 50% relative humidity. The EER is related to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics, with the primary difference being that the COP of a cooling device is unit-less: the cooling load and the electrical power needed to run the device are both measured using the same units, e.g. watts. Therefore a COP is universal and can be used in any system of units. EER = COP * 3.412 .

       In regards to Schneider Electric's cooling products this can be calculated from the Technical Data Manuals, or Technical Data Specifications. Customer can calculate these if they choose, however, the "rating point" or "condition" need to be known.  This could be the expected return air temps or another value based on a competitors product rating point. 


      EER = rated cooling capacity output (kW)/cooling input power (kW)

      COP = rated heating capacity output (kW)/heating input power (kW)

      Resolution
      Steps to convert the PF reading from hexadecimal to decimal value are below:
      1. Convert hexadecimal reading to binary. 
      2. Remove the first bit (sign bit) of the binary value. 
      a. If the sign bit is zero (0), the resulting Power Factor is positive (sign multiplier = +1)
      b. If the sign bit is one (1), the resulting Power Factor is negative (sign multiplier = -1)
      3. Convert the remaining 15-bit value to decimal
      4. Multiply resulting decimal value by the scaling factor to obtain the power factor magnitude
      5. Multiply the power factor magnitude by the sign multiplier

      Example:
      Hexadecimal reading of 0x83E4 and scaling factor of 0.001
      1. Convert the hexadecimal reading to binary:
       
      0x83E4 (or 33764 in decimal) = 1000001111100100 in binary.
      2. Remove the first bit (sign bit) of the binary value. Remaining binary value is 000001111100100
      b. The sign bit is 1. Sign multiplier = -1
      3. Convert the remaining 15-bit value to decimal
      000001111100100 in binary = 996 in decimal
      4. Multiply resulting decimal value by the scaling factor to obtain the power factor magnitude
      996*0.001 = 0.996
      5. Multiply the power factor magnitude by the sign multiplier
      0.996*(-1) = -0.996
      Result PF = -0.996

      Why the LED light for a combination of a 753 with LED light strobes, when the sensor switches off? Is there a solution to fix this problem?

      Yes there is a solution. Try the following:

      Option1: You will need to change your 753 to a 753R
      Option 2: use a 31CAP, 31LCDA, or add a relay.

      This is a compatibility issue between our sensor and some other company's LED lighting.
      This solution will work 95% of the time but not always.
      For best results you need to use Clipsal LED lights.

      Issue:
      How do you set up the ATV61/ATV71 drive with an VW3A3316 ethernet IP option card to use assemblies 100 and 101?

      Product Line:
      Altivar ATV61 ATV71 with VW3A3316 or VW3A3320 option cards

      Environment:
      All 

      Cause:
      Using an Allen Bradley PLC they need to set up the ATV61 with an VW3A3316 ethernet IP option card to use assemblies 100 and 101.

      Resolution:

      PLC settings:

      The Ethernet Scanner Module needs to be configured as followed. 
      1.  Set up the input and output tables as a Generic option. 
      2.  Assembly 100 output table Size 16 bytes (8 integer) (writing command)
      3.  Assembly 101 input table Size 16 bytes (8 integer) (reading command)
      4.  Configuration size 0.
      5.  Single INT or single Integer. 

      Drive settings:
      [Note] - programming example only you can configure the drive to match your logic input configuration. 

      1.  Menu 1.6 [COMMAND]
      Ref 1 channel  = Com card
      Profile = I/O profile
      CMD  Switching = LI3
      CMD channel 1= Com card
      CMD channel 2= Terminal control
      ref 2 Switching = channel 1 active

      2.  menu 1.7 [APPLICATION FUNCTION]
      Ref Switching
      Ref 1 B Switching = LI3
      Ref 1 B channel = AI1

      What happens If the Inter-Packet-Gap between the Ethernet messages is too small.

      Goals and Symptoms


      What happens If the Inter-Packet-Gap between the Ethernet messages is too small,
       

      Facts and Changes

      If the Inter-Packet-Gap between the Ethernet messages is too small, it could cause the connection resources to be
      used up.

      Causes and Fixes

      According to the IEEE 802.3 standards, an Ethernet Datalink layer must allow a minimum amount of time
      before another message data packet can be sent. The purpose of the inter-packet gap is to allow enough
      time for the Ethernet device to recover.

      Before a new Ethernet message can be received by the Datalink layer of a device (i.e., TSXETY5103),
      the resources that is being used from a previous conection must be cleaned up and reallocated. If the
      Inter-Packet Gap is too small, the receiving Ethernet device device may not have enough time to perform the
      clean up (This is a function within the PLC that must be solved at the end of each scan of the firmware.)
      When this happens, new resources are allocated for the connection. When the resources are not properly
      cleaned up, they cannot be reallocated to new incoming connections and are left hanging. As this behaviour
      progress over time, the resources will eventually get used up and any new incoming connection will get refused.

      To resolve the problem redesign the Ethernet TCP/IP driver to allow adequate time for the Inter-Packet Gap.

      What is the difference between the C-series SCC and the MPPT-series SCC?

      Explanation of the C-series and the MPPT-series Solar Charge Controllers

       Schneider Electric manufactures two types of Solar Charge Controllers, the C-series and the MPPT-series. This document will provide a basic understanding of how each unit works and what are the key differences between the two series. 

      First lets talk about the C-series:

      This units come on three difference sizes, C35, C40, and C60. Each one of them is rated for 35A, 40A, and 60A of charging respectively. The C-series works using PWM, which stands for Pulse Width Modulation. PWM works as a series of pulses which provide ON/OFF switching to a voltage source based on a time frame, the average between the pulses width provides the voltage needed. The following is an image that provides and example of the information described above. 
       
      www.societyofrobots.com/schematics_h-bridgedes.shtml
      Now lets cover the MPPT-series:

      This units come on two different sizes, MPPT60-150 and the MPPT80-600. Each one of this units can provide 60A of charging and 80A of charging respectively. The MPPT units use an algorithm called Maximum Power Point Tracking. MPPT algorithm considers several aspects of the power being provided by the PV Panels in order to harvest as much power as it can possibly get. The two main aspects it monitors is the Voltage (V) versus Current (I) curve. This units will lock their capability of harvest on what is called the knee curve. The knee curve is a basic Voltage versus Current curve that provide the efficiency of the PV panels. The best efficiency point of this curve is right where the voltage and the current curve hit the same point, which look like a knee, hence the name of the curve. The following graph shows a normal V vs. I curve.


       Notice that the MPPT harvest point is the BLUE line that is plotted accross each curve. 
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Solar-Cell-IV-curve-with-MPP.png

      Now lets talk about the differences between PWM and MPPT :
      PWM is a less efficient unit than the MPPT
      , because the C-series acts like a switch that connects the array to the battery, i.e. the battery voltage will determine the operating voltage of the modules. For this reason, the C-series requires the array to be configured to the same nominal voltage as the battery bank that is going to be charge with it. The MPPT series can track the maximum power voltage throughout the entire range of input PV voltage (at least 5VDC higher than the target BULK voltage up to the maximum MPPT voltage). The MPPT cannot "boost" from a lower PV voltage to a higher charge voltage, however.
