The ECL-600 Series controllers are microprocessor-based programmable controllers designed to control various building automation applications such as air handling units, chillers, boilers, pumps, cooling towers, and central plant applications. This series supports up to two ECx-400 Series I/O extension modules.
LONMARK® Certified Programmable Controllers and I/O Extension Modules
These controllers use the LonTalk® communication protocol and are LONMARK certified as a Static Programmable Device, guaranteeing compatibility and interoperability with other manufacturers’ LONMARK certified controllers.
These controllers meet the requirements of the following applications:
- Central plant
- Air handling units
- Multi-zone applications
- Cooling towers
- Roof top units
- Power measurement
Universal Inputs and Outputs
This controller has various software configurable universal inputs and software configurable universal outputs, and covers all medium to large-size industry-standard HVAC applications. This series supports up to two ECx-400 Series I/ O extension modules that operate off of a separate sub-bus, giving this controller a total of up to 40 universal inputs and 36 universal outputs.
HOA Switches & Potentiometers
Certain models have the convenience of supervised Hand-Off-Auto (HOA) switches and potentiometers that provide feedback on an operator’s manual override of an output to the controller’s code. HOA switches are ideal for testing purposes or when performing equipment commissioning and maintenance.
16 universal inputs including 4 for fast pulse counting and metering applications
Expandable I/O capabilities with up to 2 ECx modules for a total of 40 inputs and 36 outputs
Optional HOA switch with potentiometer to locally override and monitor overridden outputs
15 VDC power supply to power 4-20mA transducers
2 calendar, 10 schedule, 30 loop (PID), and over 300 BACnet objects
Internal alarm functionality
ECB-650 includes live graphics color display (integrated LCD operator interface)
Open-to-Wireless™ Solution: support of up to 28 wireless battery-less inputs
ECL 600 and ECL 650 (AHU) LonMark® certified controllers designed to meet oil and gas industry standards
Rugged hardware inputs and outputs eliminate need for external protection components, such as diodes for 12V DC relays.
Highly Accurate Universal Inputs
Highly accurate universal inputs support thermistors and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) that range from 0 Ohms to 350,000 Ohms, as well as support for inputs requiring 0 to 10VDC or a pulse count. 0-20mA inputs and outputs have a jumper that eliminates the need for external resistors. This provides the freedom of using your preferred or engineer-specified sensors, in addition to any existing ones. The first four universal inputs support fast pulse count reading up to 50 Hz for gas, water, and electric meters and are compatible with an SO rated (optically-isolated) output.
The controllers are Open-to-Wireless™ ready, and when paired with the Wireless Receiver, work with a variety of wireless battery-less sensors and switches, to reduce the cost of installation and minimize the impact on existing partition walls. For supported frequencies in your area, refer to the Open-to-Wireless Solution Guide. Available with an optional Wireless Receiver that supports up to 28 wireless inputs to create wire-free installations.
