Delta Application Controller (16-Input)


DAC-1600 (Rev 1.0)
Document Edition 1.0

Product Description
The Delta 16-Input Controller is a Native BACnet
Application Controller that is fully programmable (via
GCL+) and communicates on an RS-485 LAN using the
MS/TP BACnet protocol. The controller includes an easy
to mount enclosure and is designed for a wide range of
monitoring applications requiring no more than 16 inputs.
A secondary LINKnet network is also supported for up to
4 Delta BACstats or other Delta LINKnet devices.
The 16 universal inputs are jumper configurable.

CONTROLLER CAPABILITIES & CHARACTERISTICS

Unlike DSC products, the DAC-1600 is only configurable as a Subnet device


A DCU is no longer necessary (as long as one System device exists on the MS/TP network)

DNA

DERIVED NETWORK ADDRESSING (DNA)


Derived Network Addressing (DNA), which works in conjunction with
the Device Type setting and refers to the ability of inheriting portions of its
address from higher-up devices on an MS/TP network, may be enabled or
disabled via jumper setting.
Enabled ! With the jumper in place, the controller automatically obtains
portions of its overall BACnet device address (as related to Area
and possibly System) from higher-up devices on the network.
This is the preferred method of addressing the controller in a
system of Delta devices.
Disabled ! With the jumper removed, the device does not obtain any
portions of its address from higher-up devices. Instead, default
numbers are assumed (for Area and System), which may be
modified via software. This method of addressing is most useful
in OEM or multi-vendor installations where Delta products do
not exist higher-up in the network architecture, or where device
address ranges are pre-assigned for the installation.
NOTE: Whether or not Derived Network Addressing is enabled, the
Addressing DIP switches are always used to set the device MAC address.

Controller Address DIP Switches


Each individual DIP switch represents a pre-defined value, which added together forms the device address.

Mounting
The 1600 Controller is designed for mounting quickly and easily in a number of locations, usually within
packaged equipment or within another enclosure (to meet code requirements). Ensure the controller itself is a
safe distance away or in some other way protected from relief valves and other water sources.

Input Wiring
Inputs on the Delta 1600 Controllers follow the same general wiring connection diagrams as other Delta
products. Refer to separate documentation for additional details.

Document Edition 1.0

Delta Controls

Power
The 1600 Controller requires a 24 VAC (or 15 to 35 VDC) power supply. With an isolated Class II 24 VAC
transformer you need not ground one leg. Several controllers (not including DCUs or V2 products) may be
connected to the same transformer, providing the transformer is properly sized for all the controllers and line
losses without drawing too much current, and polarity is observed between controllers (in regards to Hot and
Neutral). Also, the transformer must ONLY be used to provide power to other MS/TP or LINKnet devices,
and no other auxiliary purposes.

MS/TP Network & Cabling Requirements


To ensure network stability and reliable communications, particularly at high speeds on the MS/TP network for a
number of devices, it is imperative that you adhere to the following network and cabling requirements:
Item

Description

Cabling

For MS/TP and LINKnet networks it is recommended that you use network cabling that
matches the following specifications:
Balanced 100 to 120 ohm nominal impedance Twisted Shielded Pair (TSP) Cable
Nominal capacitance of 16 PF/FT or lower
Nominal velocity of propagation of 66% or higher

Topology

Ensure the MS/TP network cable is installed as a daisy-chain from one device to the next.

Max. Nodes

The maximum number of devices per MS/TP network without any repeaters is 50.

Termination
Boards

A termination board (TRM-768) must be installed at each end of each MS/TP network segment
or two per MS/TP or LINKnet network. Ensure you do not overlook this in laying out your
network architecture and ordering product.

Repeater

A repeater (RPT-768) is not necessary unless more than 50 nodes will be installed on a network
or you need to extend the MS/TP network beyond 4000 ft (1220 m).

For more detailed information, including wiring, refer to the RS-485 Network Installation Guide (DOC818-11).

MS/TP Network Topology


With V3.21 firmware MS/TP devices are all configured as Subnet devices, and you also need at least one
DCU. With V3.22 firmware DSC-606 Controllers are much more capable as peer-to-peer controllers on an
MS/TP network with one System device (DCU or otherwise).

Ethernet Note:
If the DCU or DSC has Ethernet capability, it may exist on an
Ethernet network with other controllers in the same building, on which
the ORCAview OWS could reside as well (instead of PTP).

1. Ensure you use the recommended balanced cable.


2. Ensure the cable is installed as a daisy-chain from one device to
the next (4,000' or 1220m maximum).
3. Ensure you install an MS/TP terminator board (TRM-768) on each
end of each MS/TP network.
4. The maximum nodes per MS/TP network is 50 without a repeater,
or up to 99 with at least one repeater (RPT-768).
