Compass v22 Dynalite v11 RS485

Introduction

The Dynalite Compass Point links a Dynalite DyNet lighting control network to the Compass Network using the DyNet Network Protocol (A.V.Controller Version). DyNet allows multiple lighting controllers to be networked together including relay controllers (suitable for all load types) and ballast controllers (suitable for all fluorescent and incandescent fixtures). The DyNet network can be used to control lighting areas and individual lighting channels within each area. Areas and channels can be faded to on, to off, as a percentage, or to a pre-set level.

Notes The Dynet protocol does not acknowledge the Compass driver when a write is performed, therefore the driver assumes that all writes are successful. Some Dynalite controllers have a red LED fitted that can indicate the success of a write. The Dynalite controller's red LED acts as a `heartbeat' and under normal conditions is on for a second, off for a second, and so on. If a message is received successfully, the LED will flash four times rapidly, short pause, flash four times rapidly, short pause, flash four times rapidly, short pause, then resume normal heartbeat. If a message is received that is not understood, then the LED will flash rapidly on and off seven times. The Compass driver uses the Dynalite default fade rate of 2 seconds. The Dynalite system does not report alarms to Compass. If alarms are needed then an AlarmGen device will be required. The Dynalite system does not provide logging facilities to Compass. If logging of values is needed then a LogMax device will be required.

Engineering

Step 1 ­ Mount the Compass Point

Refer to the `Mounting' section within the `Compass Point MRTC485 Installation Guide' document for details on how to mount the Compass Point securely to a wall or within a cabinet.

Step 2 ­ Configure Dynalite System

The Dynalite system does not require configuration.

Step 3 ­ Connect Compass Point to Dynalite System

Using cable, connect the Dynalite controller to the RS485 terminal block of the Compass Point. Refer to the section `Cable' below for details of the cable.

Step 4 ­ Apply Power to the Compass Point

Refer to the `Power' section within the `Compass Point MRTC485 Installation Guide' document. Once power is applied, the green LED should be lit continuously to show that the Compass Point is working correctly on the Compass Network.

Step 5 ­ Configure the Dynalite driver within Compass Point

The device number and alarm polling facilities are configured using objects. Use object engineering software to view and modify the objects within the Compass Point.

Step 6 ­ Access Objects within the Dynalite System

Values from the Dynalite system are made available as objects on the Compass Network. Any object software that is connected to the Compass Network can access these objects. The red LED near the RS485 port of the Compass pulses when a valid message is transmitted or received by the Compass Point.

Step 7 ­ Configure the Transfers within the Compass Point

Compass Point transfers are also configured using objects. Refer to the `Introduction to Compass Transfers' document for more details.

Step 8 ­ Configure the Alarm Handling within the Compass Point

Compass Point alarm handling is also configured using objects. Refer to the `Introduction to Compass Alarms' document for more details. It is possible to configure some Dynalite units to generate messages when their breakers change state. If this has been enabled (however, this is not normal practice) then the Compass Point can use this to generate alarms.

Cable Specification

The cable between the Compass Point and the Dynalite controller is as follows:

Compass end CN3 + 0V Maximum Cable Length = 1000m Dynalite end 9-way D-type male 6 2 Compass end CN3 + 0V Maximum Cable Length = 1000m Note: the FCC68 is shown looking at the plug with the clip to the top, pins shown left to right (far left = pin 1) Dynalite end FCC68 6-way plug 3 4

The earthing screen or braid of the cable should be connected as close as possible to the 0V terminal at one end only. Do not connect the earthing braid of a single cable run to more than one unit, be it Compass Point or device.

Objects

When the Compass Point is powered-up the following objects are created on the Compass Network, use object software to access these objects.

Object Dn [1] Pp [3] Label Dynalite System Dynalite Compass Point R/W Type [ D y n a l i t e v 1 1 ] [2] [Compass v22\Dynalite v11]

Notes

[1] [2] [3] The Device Number, n, is a number in the range 0...63. This object has a variable content and as such requires scanning. If the Compass Point has its device number configured the Point address, p, is a number in the range 1...63. If no device number is set the Point address, p, is the Compass Point serial number in the range 1000000...99999999
