SHIPPING DAMAGE

Upon receipt of equipment, the carton should be checked for external signs of shipping damage. If damage is found, the receiving party must contact the last carrier immediately, preferably in writing, requesting inspection by the carrier’s agent.

GENERAL

These instructions explain the operation, installation and troubleshooting of the MV4000 Series controller.

All internal wiring is complete. Only attach low voltage field wiring to designated terminal strips.

The MV4000 is for use with units with or without economizers, can be configured for use with heat pumps, and has a dehumidification control feature if an optional humidity controller is connected.

Each unit should be sized to handle the total load of the structure if 100% redundancy is required.

The MV4000 controller is suitable for both 50 and 60

HZ operation, and is fully configurable such that it can be used in virtually any installation. See Controller Programmable Features and Default Settings.

THEORY OF OPERATION

The controller is used to control two wall mount air conditioners from one control system. It provides total redundancy for the structure and equal wear on both units. It can be used with units with or without economizers and it is recommended that both units be equipped alike.

The MV4000 controller can be configured for alternative (lead/lag/lead/lag) sequence, which is default setting. It can be changed to non-alternating (lead/lead/ lag/lag) sequence as required for special applications or user preference.

The MV4000 is equipped with the B alarm board.

Form C dry contact alarm relays are used, offering both NO and NC switching to meet the user’s specific alarm protocol, providing complete flexibility to meet any user's requirements. All alarm actuations are individually indicated on the controller front panel.

There is an Ethernet based remote communication option that can be either factory or field installed. See section on Communication Module.

controller certifications

mounting the controller

Included in the controller carton is the controller and installation instructions.

The controller should be installed on a vertical wall approximately four (4) feet above the floor-away from drafts & outside doors or windows. Four (4) mounting holes are provided for mounting to the wall and 7/8" holes for conduit connections are provided in both the base, sides & top of the controller.

temperature sensors

The standard (local) temperature sensor has 12" leads and comes installed from the factory.

A secondary sensor is located internally on the main controller board and serves as a reference and back-up sensor to the local sensor. Any differential of +/- 12F between the on-board and local sensor will cause the controller to use the local sensor as its point of reference. If the differential is greater than 12F then the controller will check to determine the on-board sensor is reading a temperature that is between the SP (set-point) plus 12F and the SP minus the DB (dead-band) minus 12F. If it is the on-board sensor will become the valid sensor reading and the controller will ignore the local sensor reading. If it is not then the controller will still use the local sensor reading. This is to add additional level of operational capability in the rare event the local sensor fails. If the controller is operating in this mode it is indicated by the lower left decimal point flashing in the display. Note: for purposes of testing when the local sensor is manually driven higher or lower by applying warm or cool water to the probe the on-board sensor is inhibited for the first

30-minutes following power up, or when power is cycled off and back on.

The controller is designed to accept 1 or 2 additional sensors and those have 25-foot leads. The Bard part number for the optional sensor with 25-foot leads is 8612-023. These can be installed as required in the structure to address hot spots, barriers to airflow, etc.

It is recommended that the sensor lead wires be installed in conduit for protective purposes.

The highest reading of any connected sensor will be used for high temperature alarm and the lowest reading sensor will be used for low temperature alarm.

Note: All sensors are polarity sensitive. The copper lead must connect to terminal CU, and the silver lead to AG. Sensors are solid state, not RTD. Use only sensors supplied by Bard. Sensor leads can be extended up to 200 feet. Use 18-gauge twisted pair with soldered connections.

temperature sensor logic

The standard local (LSEn) sensor monitors the temperature at the controller location. If this is the only sensor connected, it will control the temperature read-out, the space (building) temperature, and also be used for

Low and High Temperature alarm functions.

If one or more remote sensors are installed and connected (Rem 1 or Rem 2), the temperature read-out will display and the building will be controlled to an average of all connected sensors. If there is more than 10F difference from the highest to the lowest connected sensor, the actual control will be governed by the hottest sensor for cooling and the coldest sensor for heating.

If multiple temperature sensors are used, the High and

Low temperature alarms will be governed by the average of the connected sensors.

LOW voltage field wiring

The MV4000 is powered from the air conditioners that it is controlling, 24 VAC (18-32V) low voltage only.

Circuitry in the MV4000 isolates the power supplies of the two air conditioners so that no back feeds or phasing problems can occur. Additionally, if one air conditioner loses power, the MV4000 and the other air conditioner are unaffected and will continue to operate normally.

Connect the low voltage field wiring from each unit per the low voltage field wiring diagrams in Section on

“Controller Wiring”. note: Maximum of 18-gauge control wiring should be used. Using heavier gauge wiring can create excessive stress on the control board as door is opened and closed. Create a wiring loop so the door can open and close without stressing terminal blocks.

controller grounding

A reliable earth ground must be connected in addition to any grounding from conduit. Grounding lugs are supplied for this purpose.

controller power-up

Whenever power is first applied to the controller, there is a twenty (20) second time-delay prior to any function (other than display) becoming active. This time-delay is in effect if the controller On/Off button is used when 24VAC from air conditioners is present, and also if controller is in “ON” position and 24VAC from air conditioners is removed and then restored.

Manual

2100-571A

fire suppression circuit

To disable the MV4000 and shut down both air conditioners, terminals F1 and F2 may be used. The F1 and F2 terminals must be jumpered together for normal operation. A normally closed (nc) set of dry contacts may be connected across the terminals and the factory jumper removed for use with a field-installed fire suppression system. The contacts must open if a fire is detected. See appropriate connection diagram - Figures 1, 2 or 3 for this connection. Contacts should be rated for pilot duty operation at 2 amp 24VAC minimum. Shielded wire (22-gauge minimum) must be used, and the shield must be grounded to the controller enclosure.

important note: Older Bard R-22 models employ an electronic blower control that has a 60-second blower off-delay. Current production R-410A models do not use a blower off-delay device and the remainder of this (paragraph) does not apply. In order to have immediate shutdown of the blower motor, in addition to disabling the run function of the air conditioners will require a simple wiring modification at the blower control located in the electrical control panel of the air conditioners being controlled by the lead/lag controller. To eliminate the 60-second blower off-delay, disconnect and isolate the wire that is factory-connected to the “R” terminal on the electronic blower control, and then connect a jumper from the “G” terminal on the blower control to the “R” terminal on the blower control. The electronic blower control will now function as an on-off relay with no off-delay, and the blower motor will stop running immediately when the F1-F2 fire suppression circuit is activated (opened).

staging delay periods

The following delays are built in for both cooling & heating:

Stage 1 0 seconds for blower (if not already on as continuous)

10 seconds for cooling or heating output

Stage 2 10 seconds after Stage 1 for blower

10 additional seconds for cooling or heating output

Stage 3 10 seconds after Stage 2 Stage 4 10 seconds after Stage 3

Note: For cooling Stages 1 and 2, the stage LED will blink for 10 seconds while the cooling output is delayed after that stage is called for. There is also a delay after the stage is satisfied, and after the LED stops blinking, the stage will turn off. There is a minimum 10-second delay between stages 2 & 3, and 3 & 4, but no delayed output when stage is turned on or off, and LED for those stages will not blink.

blower operation

The controller can be configured to have main HVAC blowers cycle on and off on demand; have all blowers run continuously; or have the lead unit blower run continuously with the lag unit blower cycling on demand. Default setting is the blower on the lead unit operates continuously. There is also an option to have all blowers cycle on if one remote sensor is connected, and a temperature difference of more than 5F between any two sensors is observed. This helps to redistribute the heat load within the structure and should reduce compressor operating time.

When any of the stages are satisfied, the stage LED will blink for ten (10) seconds before the stage is actually turned off.

Advance (Swap) lead/Lag unit feature

Pressing the Advance button for one (1) second will cause the lead and lag units to change positions. This may be useful during service and maintenance

procedures. This function can also be done remotely by closing a contact across the Advance terminals on the main board.

accelerate timer feature

Pressing the UP arrow button for five (5) seconds will activate an accelerate (speed-up) mode, causing the normal changeover time increments of days to be reduced to seconds. Example: 7 days becomes 7 seconds. When “ACC” displays, release button.

Whichever LED is on, indicating lead unit will blink over for each second until the controller switches. This is a check for the timer functionality.

humidity control option

Note: This function is not available if controller is configured for heat pump.

The standard air conditioning system can be adapted to perform dehumidification control by addition of a simple humidity controller that closes-on-rise, and is connected to terminals H1 and H2 on the main

controller board. Recommended Bard Part #8403-038 (H600A 1014). Both HVAC units must be equipped with electric heat for this sequence to work properly. See appropriate connection diagram - Figures 1 - 12 for this connection:

1.Temperature control always has priority over dehumidification. If there is any stage of cooling demand active, the dehumidification sequence is locked out.

2.If all stages of cooling are satisfied, and relative humidity is above the set point of humidity controller:

a.The green “Dehumid. Operation” light will come on, and the lag unit compressor and blower will operate until the set point of humidity controller is satisfied (or cancelled by a call for cooling).

b.If the space temperature drops to 67F, the electric heater of the lead unit will cycle to help maintain building temperature. It will cycle off at 69F.

c.If space temperature drops to 64F, the Stage 2 Heating light will come on and the lag unit compressor operating for dehumidification mode will cycle off until the building temperature rises above 65F from 1st stage heat and building load. The green “Dehumid. Operation” light stays on during this sequence, and when Stage 2 Heating light is Off, the compressor is On. The electric heater in lag unit is locked out in dehumidification mode.

Lag unit outputs G, Y1 and Y2 are all switched on during dehumidification sequence. This is true for both alternating and non-alternating controller configurations.

CAUTION

Humidity controller set point should be in 50-60% relative humidity area: Setting controller to lower settings will result in excessive operating time and operating costs for the electric reheat, and in extreme cases could cause evaporator (indoor) coil freeze-up if there are periods of light internal equipment (heat) loading.

COOLING OPERATING SEQUENCES FOR ALternatING LEAD/LAG/LEAD/LAG CONFIGURATION

1.1-Stage Compressor Units No Economizer

1st stage cooling set point is the setting (SP) input into the controller. Factory default is 77F (25C). On a call for cooling the blower of the lead unit will come on immediately (if not already on – See

Blower Operation), and the Stage 1 LED will blink for 10-seconds before going solid, at which time the compressor will start.

2nd cooling set point is 4F (default setting, user selectable 2-6F) warmer than Stage 1. On a call for 2nd Stage cooling the blower of the lag unit is turned on (if not already on – See Blower Operation), and the Stage

2 LED will blink for 10-seconds before going solid, at which time the compressor will start.

3rd and 4th stages are functional outputs but there is nothing to be controlled.

2.2-Stage Compressor Units No Economizer

1st stage cooling set point is the setting (SP) input into the controller. Factory default is 77F (25C). On a call for cooling the blower of the lead unit will come on immediately (if not already on – See Blower Operation), and the Stage 1 LED will blink for 10-seconds before going solid, at which time the lead unit compressor will start in compressor Stage 1 partial capacity operation.

2nd cooling set point is 4F (default setting, user selectable 2-6F) warmer than Stage 1. On a call for 2nd Stage cooling the blower of the lag unit is turned on (if not already on – See Blower Operation), and the Stage 2 LED will blink for 10-seconds before going solid, at which time the lag unit compressor will start in compressor Stage 1 partial capacity operation.

3rd cooling set point is 2F (default setting, user selectable 2-3F) warmer than Stage 2. On a call for 3rd Stage cooling the Stage 3 LED comes on solid (no delay), and the lead unit compressor will switch to compressor Stage 2 full capacity operation.

4th cooling set point is 2F (default setting, user selectable 2-3F) warmer than Stage 3. On a call for 4th Stage cooling the Stage 4 LED comes on solid (no delay), and the lag unit compressor will switch to compressor Stage 2 full capacity operation.
