Remote Status, Monitoring, and Configuration
The CommStat Touch connects to a Network Operation Center (NOC) to provide two-way communication and control functions. Shelter conditions and HVAC status can be monitored and settings changed without the need to physically visit the site. Alarms are displayed and can be reset remotely or by using the touch screen.
Control Up To Four Air Conditioners Or Heat Pumps In a Shelter
The CommStat Touch has the capability to be daisy chained with a second CommStat Touch controller for controlling up to four air conditioners or heat pumps in a shelter. When a CommStat Touch controller is daisy chained with a CommStat 4 in a Master/Slave configuration, any settings to the Master unit immediately take effect on the Slave unit. The interface for the daisy chain is an RJ11 connector.
Ease of Control and Configuration
A large, backlit touch screen LCD display shows the status of the system and provides a convenient user interface. Status indicators for Heat, Cool, Power, Alarms and the Lead Unit are always displayed. When a fault is detected, an alarm symbol flashes and the LCD screen displays the fault. If multiple faults are detected, they will be displayed on the touchscreen and the remote interface.
The CommStat Touch is easily configured using the built-in graphical display. A Comfort button changes the temperature in the shelter for 90 minutes. After 90 minutes, the temperature reverts back to the programmed set points. A lead swap button alternates the lead and lag unit, allowing service technicians to quickly check the operation of each unit.
For security, the keypad can be locked out to prevent unwanted changes to the set points. °F or °C units are selectable.
The CommStat Touch controller contains no hazardous materials and is RoHS compliant.
