Price Intelligent Controller for Fan Coils
PIC-FC = Deluxe - Price Intelligent Controller for Fan Coils
The PIC-FC is a stand-alone or networkable, fully digital and configurable controller. This is the ultimate solution for sequence controlled operation, monitoring, and control possibilities. The PIC-FC is a cutting-edge control package that offers a new level of zone control which can be applied to any Price fan coil or blower coil model. An advanced and configurable proportional integral (PI) controller allows for exceptional user comfort and energy efficiency. Installation of the controller and thermostat is simple and error-proof with RJ-45 (network type) connections to the thermostat and BACnet network.
The PIC-FC is designed with a modular architecture. Options such as BACnet networking are offered as add-on modules. This allows flexibility to the customer by providing both value in the core controller as well as powerful control and communication options with the use of the expansion modules.
Any PIC-FC ordered with the BACnet option will ship with the appropriate module installed and mounted. Modules may also be field mounted and connected to the PIC-FC with a single ribbon-type cable.
The PIC-FC is available with several thermostat options, allowing the designer to match the specific needs of the customer. Every model has an RJ-12 service port that allows for setup and configuration access without having to access the plenum. The PIC-FC has a 0-10 vdc fan output which can be used in conjunction with the Price fan switching relay (FC-PSC3) in order to adjust the fan during the operational sequence. It is also available with a temperature thermistor which can be used to achieve a heat-cool changeover by monitoring the water supply or used to maintain a constant discharge air temperature (DAT). The Price LINKER setup tool (combined with free software) can be used to reconfigure the PIC-FC from this service port. A stand-alone setup tool, LCD-SETUP, is available. Alternative methods of reconfiguration include LCD thermostats and BACnet software.
Occasionally an installation arises where running CAT5 and other wiring is inconvenient or even impossible. For jobs such as these, Price is proud to introduce its Wireless thermostat. Using cutting edge wireless technology, a base station mounted under the floor or in the ceiling communicates with a battery powered remote thermostat up to 50 ft away. The thermostat also contains a temperature sensor, which is linked to the base through the wireless connection as well.
