Carrier is proud to add two new multi-purpose controllers (MPCs) to their TruVu family of flexible, scalable building controls for the i-Vu building automation system. These new controllers feature integrated input/output (I/O) points, built-in BACnet routing and integration capabilities, and expansion modules that can be added to support up to 224 total I/O points for a variety of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) applications.
The latest TruVu MPC controllers are field programmable and include a comprehensive library of factory-engineered control programs for both air-side and water-side HVAC systems, greatly reducing the need for custom programming. They are also customizable for any equipment application using Carrier’s SNAP graphical programming tool. They are ideal for controlling complex central plants, air handlers, and rooftop units, supporting up to 44 physical I/O points on the baseboard and up to 180 additional I/O points using expansion modules. They offer plug and play connectivity to the Carrier i-Vu building automation system, allowing building operators to manage the connected HVAC equipment from any web-based device.
“We are proud to expand our TruVu controller line for added flexibility and scalability,” said Mark Jones, Carrier Controls Business Manager. “The new controllers adapt easily to a wide variety of HVAC applications with their integrated I/O point and expansion capabilities, while also supporting routing, integration, and easy connectivity to our i-Vu building automation system.”
The latest MPC controllers also include new connectivity options for Carrier’s smart field devices. ComfortVu operator interfaces can now be connected to the IP port, and i-Vu smart valves can be connected to a new Act Net port.
The MPC controllers are BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL)-certified to BACnet protocol revision 14 and conform to the BACnet Building Controller (B-BC), BACnet Router (B-RTR), and BACnet BBMD (B-BBMD) device profiles.
