Hardware - Controller Data Storage
No battery on board :- Logged data, alarms and strategy
are stored in flash memory.

A supercapacitor is used to run the real time clock (RTC)


for up to six days if power fails. After this period on power
up the controller will request synchronisation from the site
time master.

If the site consists of IQ1s, IQ2s and IQ3s, then an IQ3


must be the time master.

If the site time master is an IQ3 then a battery option


board should be installed.

Install battery card option board


under detachable cover.

If the battery card is installed battery should be replaced


every five years. The battery will maintain the RTC for
several years on power fail.

IQ3 Address Details - IP Settings

The following TCP/IP settings must be set up for the IQ3 to


communicate over Ethernet:
IP address -
Unique for each device on the
network. e.g. 128.1.1.1
Subnet mask - Determines network ID of device and
is used for direct or routed comms.
Default router - The IP address of the local router for
comms to other IT networks.
UDP port No. - For Trend devices to communicate.

If the IQ3s are on the same physical network, the IP


address and subnet mask must create the same network
ID, but unique host IDs.
The UDP port numbers must all be the same.
These settings are made using iP Tool.

Note:
If more than one copy of iP Tool is running on a network
you should be aware of the following:
i) Querying the network on one iP Tool will refresh
the other.
ii) If the network is learnt at the same time two replies
will be returned from the devices and therefore you

Once the IQ3's TCP/IP and Trend addresses have been set
up SET has to connect to a virtual CNC on the network to
map the site.

The CNC can be a Virtual CNC in any Trend IQ3, 3xtend or


EINC.

SET uses File Transfer Protocol (FTP) for full upload and
download of IQ3 files. FTP will run over Ethernet but not
over a serial RS232 connection.

An LNC or hardware CNC can be used to perform all IQ3


tasks except a full download or upload. An Ethernet
connection is required for this.

Exercise - Answer
The problem is there is no internetwork between the IQ3 Ethernet lan (lan 4) and the
20mA lan (lan 5), so this is really two separate Trend sites. One of the Ethernet IQ3s will
enable its INC, but as there is no INC on the 20mA lan, there is no internetwork link.

This means the 963 cannot map the system as a single site. 963 can connect to a virtual
CNC in an IQ3 on lan 4, but then lan 5 can only be accessed as a remote site. The same
problem exists for the other lan if the VCNC in the IQ3/LAN is used for the connection.

Can you suggest a solution.

The solution is to fit a 3xtend between the 20mA lan and Ethernet. The 963 will now be
able to map the whole site from either VCNC.

2. The next item to configure is the Address Module. Set the attributes to your
company name (Maximum is 30 characters, use legal characters only).

Address properties - set to Not Sent:


i) If un-ticked, when the strategy file is created these details will be included
and written to the controller. As these have already been configured using
IPTool, we don't want to over-write them.
ii) For the identifier, add the same name that you used on the previous page and
tick the box 'Not sent.' SET checks this identifier against the identifier in the
controller and brings up an error box if they don't match.
iii) Note the IP address is set up in a new module in firmware version =>1.3.

3. Add the following sensor types to your controller:

Sensor Type Number Sensor Part Number Scaling Range

1 Trend Thermistor -40 to +110C Type 5

2 T/PC -40 to +40C Type 5

4. After configuring the address module and then setting up the sensor types
SET will automatically display the I/O setup window. This allows I/O modules
to be added and labelled.

Add the I/O module on the desk to the project controller.

When you have finished press the Exit button.


Note: To edit the address module, sensor types or I/O modules, select these
options from the Device menu.

The number of modules of each type is completely flexible.


However, each type of controller has a fixed amount of
memory and this limits the number of modules available.

Note 2 - The Time Zone module size accounts for 20 exceptions, any more added will have to be
allocated from the remaining briIQs. Exceptions are created in the web browser or 963 and these will
be configured by the user, ensure sufficient briIQs are left.
Note 3 - SET allows the you to create 500 plot modules, however you can only display graphs on
supervisors for sensors 1 to 99, plots modules for sensors higher than 99 can only be shown on the
web pages.

Software - Direct Module Interconnection

Modules are no longer connected by nodes, they are


connected directly. Each module input or output has a
connection and a value.

Although the IQ2 and IQ3 modules and links appear


similar, there is no reference to analogue or digital nodes:

The I/O module number comes from the physical address


dial setting on the hardware module.

The I/O Channel number relates to the terminal number


on the unit.

Therefore the Software module has a reference to an I/O


hardware module and a terminal number on the module,
this is then consistent with panel drawings.

5. Finish the strategy by linking your modules to the plant block strategy as
shown on the next page.

6. With sensors, digital inputs and drivers the I/O module and I/O channel must
be configured. The I/O module refers to the physical address of the I/O module
as set on its rotary switch, the base controller is always 0. I/O channel refers to
the terminal number on the module. Therefore as software I/O points have a
module and channel reference, this is consistent with any drawing references:

Configure the I/O module


channels as shown on the
strategy page overleaf.

Don't forget to plug a sensor from your box into the appropriate IQ3 input.

7. What number range can be used for the knob Top and Bottom limits?

To help answer this question remember to use the help icon in SET and click
the area of interest.

Important things to note:


i) Time zones can be
configured with up to 10 time
periods.
The SET module display can
show the times in Graphic
mode (as shown on the
previous page) or Data mode
(a table of times). If data
mode is used SET will only
display the first three periods.
ii) Module labels can now be
up to 30 characters in length,
although to maintain
compatibility, in some cases
only the first 20 will be used.
iii) All modules can have labels which are now downloaded to the controller.
These labels will help when using a web browser.
Extension Exercise

Add Sensor 11 to your strategy as a Trend Thermistor Sensor, set it up so that it is


monitoring input channel 2, label the Sensor "Lobby Space Temp".

Downloading The Data File

Downloading and uploading both use file transfer protocol


(FTP) so these operations must use an Ethernet connection.
This is transparent when using SET. Files are transferred
using the Trend LAN and OS address numbers to target
the destination IQ3.
Select Download from the Comms menu and check the
details:
i) Download to the
c correct target Trend
LAN and node. Use
LAN 0 for local sites.

ii) You may need to


connect SET to the
CNC. View the
settings and edit as
appropriate.

When you select 'OK' look at the status field, if this reports
'Connection Failed' go to system view, delete the lans and
internetwork and refresh, this checks that the controller
and VCNC are still on-line.

Firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your


computer can prevent the download.

Exercise - Downloading Duration 10 minutes


Notes:- User name and Password:
When downloading to an IQ3 you are prompted for a user name and password. This
refers to the security currently in the IQ3. If no users exist in the controller these
windows can be left at the default settings (your set user and password), these
windows must not be left empty as FTP requires a user and password even if no
security exists. Therefore if you remove the default user name and password you will
find SET automatically fills these text boxes. It should be noted that by having the
user name and passwords filled in, a user is NOT set up in the IQ3, this is covered
later in the course.

1. Download the strategy to your controller and use live values to test the
strategy. Ensure you set up your 'Current Site Connection Details' to connect to
your controller's VCNC. Once downloaded try the following using Live
Values:

2. Download the strategy to your controller. Use live values and test the
strategy by adjusting the status of the self-resetting switch and check that it
switches off after one minute.

3. Describe how you could re-configure your heating loop to perform the
following:
i) Permanently set for auto mode?

ii) NonOcc setpoint permanently configured to 17C?

Plot Modules

Plot data are stored in a separate, fixed memory area


which is not part of the controller brIQ count.
An IQ3xact can store 20,000 records (or plotted values)
and an IQ3xcite can store 100,000 records.
By default, the number of records per plot module is 1000.
This can be reduced, but not increased.
Therefore an IQ3xact can have 20 plot modules of 1000
records and an IQ3xcite can have 100 plot modules of 1000
records.
More plot modules can be created but the total number of
records is fixed and must be shared amongst the plot
modules. SET allows up to 500 plot modules to be created.
For example, an IQ3xact could have 500 plot modules, but
with only 40 records in each.
The number of records does not have to be the same in all
plot modules.
Summary: You can have any number of plot modules up to
500, and you can have any number of records up to 1000 as
long as the total number of records does not exceed the
capacity of the controller.

Software Module Sequence Table

Strategy Sequencing

Strategy
Event Based

Time
Modules which have a sequence step are calculated every
second.
If a module is removed from the sequence table, it becomes
event driven. That is, when any of its inputs change the
module's output is recalculated.

Event driven modules should form a linear strategy. If a


strategy with feedback is used (as above) the controller will
automatically return to a one second sequence.
Counting both sequenced and event driven modules the
IQ3 can service up to 900 modules per second of which 600
can be in the sequence table.

Priority Level:
The priority is used in the destination module further into
the strategy to hold low priority alarms (e.g. autodialled
destinations). The priority can also be used in 963 alarm
handling filters.
The priority level can be set in the range 0-255 (255 =
highest).

Destination Module

Hold Priority (H):


The hold priority relates to the priority level in the group
modules.
When set to a value greater than zero the module will hold
alarms with a lower priority, until either a higher priority
alarm is received, or the high water mark of waiting
alarms is reached.
The high water mark is not defined by the engineer. It
occurs when the alarm log is 75% full of unacknowledged
alarms.
The hold priority is useful for delaying the transmission of
alarms to an autodialled supervisor.

ALARM ROUTE

Route Module Properties:


Enable:
The enable input allows the flow of alarms through the
route to be switched on and off, similar to the coil on a
relay.
If the status is one the route module is enabled, and if the
status is zero it will disable the route.
If the enable input is not connected it has a default state of
one.

This allows the flow of alarms to be controlled with


strategy. For example, for enabling a second destination on
failure of the first.

Exercise - Alarm Handling Duration = 20 minutes
This exercise will guide you through setting up alarm group, route and destination
modules. We will use the alarm applet within SET to receive the alarms.

1. Add a new page to your controller. Now add the strategy modules shown
below. To find the group, route and destination modules, right click on a blank
part of the strategy and select the 'Alarms' menu option:

This is not available

2. Now the alarm modules are in place, we need to check which alarms have been
assigned to which group and ensure they are enabled. This should be easy because
if groups have been created, all module alarms in an IQ3 default to group 1.

3. Right click on a blank part of the strategy drawing and select 'Alarms' and
'Alarm Grouping' menu option. Use this window to move alarms between groups,
set up the default group as shown below:

4. Ensure the alarms are enabled in the default group, to perform this right click the
alarm and select enable.

5. Download the strategy to your controller.

6. From the Tools menu select the 'Monitor Incoming Alarms' option. This will
display the ToolSET alarm monitoring applet:

Alarms received, Alarms received, Alarms received, Grouped

This window allows you to send alarms to SET, SET will then acknowledge the
alarm in the controller. The window will store alarms received during this session.
The 'Options' button allows you to customise which columns are displayed: The

'Export...' button allows you to transfer the data to the clipboard or a text file:

The 'Clear List' clears the view which is currently shown on screen.

7. Test the alarm delivery mechanism from your IQ3. You must ensure the
alarm applet window is open to receive the alarms. Click the middle tab to
see all the alarms. Follow these fault finding tips if the alarms do not appear:

i) In the SET strategy open the Alarm grouping window and check, the alarm
you are testing is in group 1 and it is enabled.
ii) In the SET strategy edit the parameters for the group and destination
modules and ensure the group priority level is equal too or greater than the
destinations priority hold level.
iii) In the SET strategy check the route module has been enabled. In our
strategy this is a simple case of turning switch 3 ON.
iv) In the SET strategy check the destination module alarm address and LAN
number. Does this correlate to your VCNC in your controller?
v) If you have made any changes to your strategy ensure you download the file
again.
vi) Ensure the alarm applet window is open to receive the alarms, it must be
left running.

8. This exercise has taken you through the alarm set up step by step. A simple
summary check list is shown below:

Summary:
i) Configure Groups Routes and Destination modules in the controller.
ii) Set the alarm address in the destination module to be your VCNC or where
you wish the alarms to be delivered, for example a 963 supervisor.
iii) Test the desired alarms are delivered.

Did you know?


The general controller alarms, 'Controller on Line', 'Help', etc, are not sent from the controller by
default, these are stored in group zero.

In addition to the normal Trend alarms the following general alarms are supported:

Sequence Table Overrun (STOR): The controller is unable to complete all the modules in the
sequence table in the required time. Change some of the modules to event driven.
Low RAM (LMWG): If the controller runs low on RAM it will send this alarm and reboot.
Contact Technical Support.
I/O Bus Failure (FCAN): Communications failure on the I/O bus (e.g. short circuit). Check
wiring.
Low Flash (LFWG): The amount of memory used by graphics files (backdrops) is excessive.
Reduce the size or number of files.
Archive Failure (FARC): The archiving of the running strategy file into flash memory has
failed. Contact Technical Support.
Corrupt Time (FTIM): Similar to standard Fail RTC alarm.

Alarm Handling - Alarms To An IP Address

If a 963 bureau needs to receive alarms via an IT network


from remote sites there is a problem. Sending alarms to a
VCNC will only work if the supervisor is already
connected. As shown below, if the 963 is connected to site A,
then no connection exists to site B.

IQ 3xcite IQ 3xcite

Site A

Site B

Solution:
Change the destination module 'Destination Type' to 'IP
Address'. This allows controllers to transmit alarms to the
supervisor's IP address or host name.

The controller and supervisor configuration for this is


shown on the next two pages.

Exercise - Viewing modules Duration = 10 minutes
1. Set up a desktop short-cut to your IQ3. The easiest way is to highlight your
controller in iP Tool, then click the 'Web page' button.
When the web page appears in Internet explorer, click File - Send - Shortcut to
desktop. This will place a shortcut to your IQ3 on the left of your desktop.
Close down Internet Explorer, minimise iP Tool and SET, then run the web page
up again by double clicking on the desktop shortcut.
2. Navigate around your strategy and try the following:
i) View all your sensor values.
ii) View a graph of sensor 1. To zoom in drag a box around the area of interest.
To zoom out right click the graph.
iii) See if you can trace the sensor loop driver strategy using the connection
buttons.
iv) View all your setpoints (knobs). Then adjust your occupied setpoint 2C
above its current value.
v) View the time module and check the details - this is important for
commissioning.
vi) View the alarm log, this area would be useful when fault finding alarm
delivery, if the alarm does not appear in this list it is not enabled or assigned to a
group. If the alarm gets into the alarm log but the last column states 'waiting not
sent' this is a problem with the destination.
3. All software modules can be disabled, I/O modules can be overridden.
Disabled modules do not function and just stop working. This is similar to
removing an IQ2 module from the sequence table, this feature is what SET live
edit 'Disable module' uses. The module override enable and module override
value can be adjusted with strategy modules to allow an end users to override I/

6. Click on Modules then Networks then N1 to display the Ethernet settings.
These are usually set up with iP Tool but can also be changed here.

The Default host name is always TREND_xx_xx_xx where xx_xx_xx are the
last six characters of the MAC address.

The default name is always used when the controller is reset. When a new host
name (e.g. Boiler_1) is set up the controller will still respond to the default name
unless it is Disabled in the web page above.

If the default name is left Enabled, the controller will respond to both host
names.

If you use the disable module (not override) feature in the web pages the module will not
return to normal control when the address module 'Override Timer' expires. The overview
pages indicate modules in alarm (red) and disabled modules (dark grey).

Exercise - Graphics pages Duration = 25 minutes
This exercise will guide you through creating some sample GraphIQs pages for your
controller. The first two pages explain how to create pages, then we have some
sample pages for you to create. Please ensure you follow the instructions carefully as
the exercises are progressive.
In SET view one of your controller's strategy pages. From the 'Tools' menu select
'Display and Directory Setup', the following window will be displayed:
The centre window shows the
current display and directory
modules. Directory modules
represent a GraphIQs page, and
display modules are the controller
modules shown on the page, see
below for example.
The left hand window shows all the
modules in your controller which
can be displayed on a graphics
page.
The directory modules
are the GraphIQs
pages. These create the
navigator.

The display modules


are the GraphIQs items.

Once the display and directory structure has been engineered, each directory module
needs to be edited. This process sets the backdrop used, the size of the GraphIQs
page, the refresh rate of dynamic items and specifies where items appear on the
screen.
The IQ3 accepts only .JPG or GIF files for the backdrops. There is limited memory
available for storing the backdrops:
Total backdrop memory available = 2MB.
MAXIMUM file size per backdrop = 200kB, recommended is 100kB

ii) Pin Level: Linked to controller security, only
users with a level Pin Level can see the
GraphIQs page.
iii) Background Colour: The GraphIQs page can
have a background colour or backdrop picture
click the 'Change...' button to choose the colour.

iv) Backdrop: A picture can be displayed instead of a colour. The project backdrop
pictures are stored in a folder called 'backdrops' in your current SET project, the
default location would be:
C:\Set Projects\<PROJECT NAME>\Backdrops
Some training examples have been placed in C:\Temp\Backdrops

Click the 'Change...' button to display the following window:

To import backdrops click here and navigate to the required file on you PC.

following instructions to help:

Downloading the GraphIQs is the same as downloading a strategy. From the


'Comms' menu select 'Download' and configure the 'Connection Details' dialogue
box as appropriate (yours will be OK as you have already established a connection
with your IQ3). Once the strategy file has been created the following window will
be displayed:

Before you start the download it is important to understand the transfer options:
i) IQ3 File - This should be checked every time a change has been made to any IQ
module and you wish to download this new data to the controller. This includes
display and directory modules.
ii) Backdrops - This should be checked every time a change has been made to any
backdrops or a different backdrop has been selected. If you have just moved or
added a dynamic item on a page you do not have to download the backdrops again.

Download your GraphIQs pages and test them.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) is a method


of automatically allocating IP addresses to a host.
IQ 3xcite

Host

DHCP
server

DHCP works like this:


1. A DHCP server has to be set up and given a pool of
IP addresses to allocate.
2. When a host boots up (this could be a PC or an
IQ3) it sends out a broadcast to ask the DHCP
server for an IP address.
3. The server responds with an IP address from the
pool and all the other network settings (subnet
mask, default router, WINS and DNS server
addresses).
A lease period (usually 24 hours) is also sent.
4. If the server does not respond the host creates a
random address starting with 169.254.x.x. This is
known as 'link local' and cannot be used with
routers.
Section 11 - Page 2 of 12 2008 Trend Control Systems Limited, Horsham, West Sussex, U.K. IQ3 Course Iss 4.10
Setting IQ3s and 3xtends To DHCP

1) Highlight the device in IP Tool,


2) click the DHCP tick box,
3) write the data to the device.

With 3xtends it is best to do a factory reset first.

Exercise - Set your Trend devices to use DHCP


Work with your neighbour sitting at one machine.
1. Reset your 3xtend to factory settings in the following way: Power it down, set
all the switches up, power up and wait until all LEDs flash, finally set the
correct address and baud speed.

2. In SET select Trend ip-Tool from the Tools menu and click Connect.

3. Select each device in turn and set it to DHCP and click Write Data.

4. As you are not yet connected to the DHCP server the Trend devices will
generate addresses in the range 169.254.x.x.

2. In Windows click on Start, then Settings, then Network Connections. This


will display the Network Connection Status window.

3. Right click Local Area Connection and select Properties. This will display the
properties dialogue.

4. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Properties.

5. Click the button Obtain an IP address automatically and click OK twice.

6. Wait for about 30 seconds to allow the PC to be given a new address. The pool
of host addresses in the DHCP server fourth octet is 1-90.

7. Open a command line window (go to Start - Run - Type CMD and press enter.
Then use IPCONFIG /ALL to check that your new address is in this range.

8. In SET System view delete all the Lans and the internetwork, then refresh the
site. You should be able to see all the controllers and 3xtends in your part of the
room. You should not be able to see the other controllers although you are
connected to them through the router.

The normal broadcasts used by the Trend internetwork on


Ethernet are blocked by routers.

Trend products are able to create an internetwork which


will span routers if the network settings on the other side of
the router are set up.

These are the 'Remote Trend Devices' settings in IQ3s and


3xtends. They are used to create a routing table which
allows Trend devices to create an internetwork through a
router.

The Remote Trend devices list creates a form of routing


table. This allows a directed message to be sent between
Trend products through the router.
Set up the 'Remote Trend device' entry in the device with
the lowest IP address. The entry is the IP address and
subnet mask of the Trend device on another network that
the internetwork needs to link to. The other device must
also be the lowest Trend IP address on that network.
For fail safe, apply the rule using the two lowest addressed
Trend devices on each network.
A Trend Ethernet device is an IQ3, an EINC or a 3xtend.
The host name can be used if a WINS server is present on
the site.

When Routers Should Be Spanned

Routers are used on IT networks to interconnect IT LANs,


they create Wide Area Networks (WANS). Although the
Trend internetwork can be configured to span a router we
need to explore why?

Trend controllers which are on different Subnets would
you need to span a router.

Proxy Server:
Some sites have a proxy server for Internet connections. This cane be used
as a security checkpoint for Internet traffic, i.e. a channel for all web
browsing. If the proxy server is not aware of the IQ3xcite the user will fail to
connect with the controller. Therefore you will find the IQ3xcite web pages
cannot be displayed, this can be corrected a number of ways:

2) Select 'Connections'

1) Select 'Tools'
menu then 'Internet
Options...'

3) Click 'LAN

ii) Click the 'Advance...' button and
add the IQ3 as an exception.
iii) Disable the proxy server setting.
iv) Consult the IT department to add
the IQ3xcite's address to the proxy
server.

for right to left languages (e.g. Arabic and Chinese),

Current language files available are:


Danish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and
Simplified Chinese

The controller stores English by default and other languages added using the
controllers address page:

Yellow: To select and


identify the default.

Green: To store in
controller. This will add
language file to
controller when
downloading.

Clear: To not send


language file to

The translation files are used to convert the English prompts in the WEB
browser and the alarm text transmitted from the controller.

The language files are


only sent to the
controller during a
download if the
Language(s) option is
ticked.

If the language exists in the
controller the controller
language will change.

What Versions do I require:


For the 8 bit and extended character sets listed overleaf (Aribic, Russian and
simplified chinese) you must have the following versions of firmware/
software.

i) IQ3xcite version 1.22 or greater


ii) SET version 5.22 or greater
iii) 963 version 2 or greater
iv) 3xtend/EINC version 1.0 or greater

Note: The Trend 20mA current loop, EINCs and previous versions of devices
listed above only support 7 bit character sets, not the 8 bit and extended
charater sets mentioned above.

Language Support New Languages:


The language files are installed as part of SET in the following directory:

Appendix 3 - Remote Access Scenarios
Scenario 1 - Existing IT Department & Firewall

If there is an existing IT Network with a network administrator you will have


to ask for access via the firewall. Firewalls use a number of methods to
enable/disable access. The next few pages describe the most common
methods.

Scenario 2 - BMS Network & Modem Router

If the IT network is purely for BMS and there is no firewall on site a


LANmodem/Router or broadband Router can be used.

A Modem router can be configured to receive incoming calls and accept


remote P.C.s onto the network. In Trend terms once this has been achieved
either SET, 963 or the web browser can be used.

WAN

The firewall allows the internal network to be protected from unauthorised


access from outside the organisation.

Firewalls also provide a single 'choke point'


where security and auditing can be imposed.

Firewalls - How do they work?
There are many different types and methods of protection with firewalls.

Two simple methods are dynamic address allocation and packet-filtering.

Dynamic Address Allocation:


Also known as Network Address Translation (NAT), the firewall will replace
the source address of any outgoing messages with its own, and then send any
replies back to the correct device.

A Firewall
IP address pool
171.192.1.1 2) Firewall allocates IP
address from a registered
company pool. 200.200.1.X
1) A message from A to B will
have the source address
replaced with 200.200.1.1

WAN

B
3) The reply from B will be sent to
200.200.1.1, therefore the firewall
will forward this to A.

This offers two benefits, the internal network addresses are not seen on the
internet therefore they do not need to be registered with the IANA and they
are kept secure.

Firewalls - How do they work?
Packet-Filtering Firewalls:
The firewall is set up to block communications between the two networks
unless a rule is configured. The rule is based on port number, source and
destination IP address.

Appendix 5 - Text comms with IQ3xcites
Summary of IQ3xcite differences for Text comms:-
If using item attributes (labels) for searching:

IQ2 message format = Room*($,V,%)


IQ3xcite message format = Room*($,V,%)

There is no format difference between controllers, however this shows replies from any
matching module attribute, i.e. Sensors, Knobs, sWitches. Therefore if searching for specific
module types, this shows a different format needs to be used:

IQ2 message format = S\Room*($,V,%)


IQ3xcite message format = S{$="Room*"}($,V,%)

When launching full controller attribute & item attribute text comms.

IQ2 message format = Floor 1\Occ*($,V,%)


IQ3 message format = Floor 1\Occ*($,V,%)

Note:
IQ2's will accept "\" or "/" between controller attribute and module
attribute IQ3xcites will only accept "\".

There is limited difference in the message format used, however this shows replies from any
matching module attribute, i.e. Sensors, Knobs, sWitches. Therefore if searching for specific
controller attributes and module types use:

IQ2 message format = Floor 1\K\Occ*($,V,%)


IQ3xcite message format = Floor 1\K{$="Occ*"}($,V,%)

Visitor Messages:
IQ3xcite controllers at present do not respond to visitor messages.
IQ3xcite firmware 1.2 will respond to IC Comms visitor messages.

Note:
the Text comms window has an 'Options' button, as
shown the protocol character can be selected. This
specifies the communications protocol that is used. It
should always be set to v Normal for Pre IQ3
controllers. It should be set to t Structured for IQ3
controllers. This allows deeper module information to be
retrieved, for example Time zone day period start and
stop times.

When communicating with IQ3 controllers v Normal


can be selected if the results of v comms are required.
However if you do this, the structured parameters will
not be shown.

Timemaster: The IQ3 can act as a Timemaster for the Trend


system (IQ1s - post 1989, IQ2s, IQ3s, and IQLs). It will maintain time
and date synchronisation for all IQ controllers and effect daylight
savings from a single source. However, each section of a system
separated by auto-dialled links requires its own Timemaster.
The IQ3 does not provide the Timekeeper functionality; this was
only required for IQ90s which did not have a battery backed real
time clock, and they should be supported by a pre-IQ3 Timekeeper
controller on their own Lan.
Note that on a combined system (IQ3s with other IQs) an IQ3
must be the Timemaster.
The Timemaster IQ3 should be fitted with the battery option board
which will support it in the case of power failure.
An IQ3 can be set by UTC time (Co-ordinated Universal Time,
approximately the same as GMT), and has a UTC Offset parameter
to define its time zone difference from UTC time.
The UTC offset and daylight savings details should be set up in
the Timemaster so that all other IQs can be synchronised Graphical display pages (GraphIQs) which are configured using
accordingly. IQ3 display and directory modules, can also be accessed (see
the example below of a dual boiler system GraphIQ page).
Language: The user can specify which language the IQ3 uses for
the display of web pages and for transmitted alarms. All the required
text is separately stored as a text file in SET and can be translated
to form a language file. The required files can be selected for each
SET project. English is always available in the controller, but SET
enables a default language as well as additional languages to be
selected. The appropriate language files will be downloaded to the
controller when the strategy is downloaded. In the controller the
Address module has a language parameter which will be set by
default to the default language, but can be changed to any one of
the other available language files or English (e.g. change to English
by setting the language parameter to english on the address
module webpage). The IQ3 can use languages which require 8 bit
code (i.e. special or accented characters) and can also operate
with right to left languages (e.g. Chinese, Arabic).

For further details of web pages see the the IQ3 Configuration
Reference Manual TA200768, the IQ3 Web User Guide, TC200631,
and the IQ3 Graphical Display Pages Editor Manual, TE200629.

COMPATIBILITY
Browsers: Internet Explorer v6, Mobile smart phones (Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition), and PDAs (Windows CE4);
note that Mobile smart phones and PDAs cannot display graphs and right to left languages
Note that IQ3 has not been tested with all devices and Trend cannot guarantee a particular devices
compatibility.
Note that the operating system environment in which Internet Explorer runs must support Java; Currently
Windows 98, 2000, and ME do support Java, but XP SP1 doesnt. For Windows XP, a Sun Java runtime
environment v1.4 or greater must be installed (this can be downloaded from Java.com).
Supervisors: 963v3 (for full compatibility), 915MDS >v3, 916, IQView
Utility software: SET v6.2 for full compatibility (includes IP Tool auxiliary software)
Displays: IQView touch screen network display, RD-IQ (see requirements p8), SDU-xcite 4 line display (the IQ3 label
lengths should be limited to 20 characters for SDU-xcite (< v1.01 firmware), SDU-xcite v1.01 will truncate the label
to the first 20 characters.)
Note that the NDP is not compatible with IQ3; it will not recognise an IQ3 connected to its network.
I/O Modules: XCITE/IO/8UI, 4UI, 4UI/4AO, 2UI/2AO, 8DO, 4DO, 8AO, 4AO, 16DI, 8DI, 8DI/8TI, 8DO/HOA, 4DO/HOA can connect
