Installation & Setup VAV–SDA

0001 Document ID: LTBT-VSDA-INST

Overview Power supply

The Alerton® BACtalk VAV-SDA™ is intended for use with variable air volume The VAV-SDA requires 24 VAC @ 65VA min. from a fused UL Listed Class 2
(VAV) boxes. It is a single-duct VAV controller with a differential pressure transformer (not provided). VAV-SDAs utilize a half-wave rectifier to convert the
transducer, five binary outputs, and one analog output. The five binary outputs AC power supply to onboard power. This enables multiple controllers with half-

universal inputs.
Warning! Half-wave devices and full-wave devices can’t use the same
AC transformer. If a VAV-SDA shares power with another device, make
sure that the other device utilizes a half-wave rectifier and that polarity of
wiring is maintained.

Input wiring and configuration

Shielded, 18 AWG wire is required for all inputs and analog outputs to reduce
electrical interference (noise). A single-point grounding scheme that utilizes the
transformer or panel ground is recommended. Ground only one side of the
shield drain wire.
IN-0 supports an Alerton Microset™ or Microset II sensor. Other inputs do not
support the Microset or Microset II. IN-0 and IN-1 can be used for a Microtouch

Warning! Do not ground shields to any terminal on the VAV-SDA
because any noise on the shield will be routed through the VAV-SDA circuit

information. Always install equipment in accordance with the National
Electric Code, the instructions, and in a manner acceptable to the local
authority having jurisdiction.

electrical interference. Also ensure that technicians can access the unit. The Analog output (AO)
VAV-SDA can be mounted in any vertical or horizontal orientation.
See Figure 3, "VAV-SDA output wiring diagram," on p. 2 for details.

MS/TP LAN configuration

VAV-SDAs communicate on the site-wide BACnet system over a twisted-pair
MS/TP LAN, which uses the RS–485 signaling standard. VAV-SDAs are master
devices on the MS/TP LAN and can initiate communications with other devices.
Each VAV-SDA employs a high-quality RS–485 tranceiver and exerts ¼ unit load
on the MS/TP LAN. For details, refer to "MS/TP LAN configuration" in the VLC
Installation and Wiring Guide (LTBT-TM-VLC).
