Relay Outputs (Internal):
Six relays rated at 120VAC. Relay ratings, 3 AMP per relay, 15 amps total
Chemical feed and additional relay programming methods, available selections
- Feed by percent of blowdown time after blowdown
- By Setpoint with Percent of time feature as part of spaced feed for setpoint “creep”.
- Trace chemistry capable with user definable correction factors as part of programming.
- By makeup totalized gallons
- By blowdown totalized gallons
- Percent on time
- Scheduled feed by time and day
- Alarm relay-User selected alarms powered output shall be selectable to either feed chemical or to alarm on the following conditions.
Up to 8 active Sensor inputs (2 TWR Conductivity, 2 pH and 2 ORP, 2 MU Conductivity) can be ordered in various combinations.
Water meters- Two Water meter inputs are standard and be factory or field upgradeable for two additional (Total four) water meter inputs
Each relay shall be capable of being configured to operate with either of the two flow (digital) input for activation or deactivation
Expansion capabilities: The unit will be factory or field upgraded. Additional expansion features include:
- 4 Additional Fully programmable relays ( NRLY Nodes)
- 8 Sensor inputs. Combo of Conductivity using NCON and pH or ORP Probes using NpH/ORP Nodes. Requires the purchase of additional probes/Plumbing kits.
- 8 Additional 4-20MA inputs (2 N420I Nodes)
- 4 Additional Digital Inputs (NDIG Node)
The NexSys® comes standard with the following system interfaces : LON EIA 709 FTT10, BACnet IP (Read this link before ordering) and MODbus TCP (As well as Incorporate DMX outputs). The unit shall comes from the factory with all tables and outputs defined for Information being transmitted , including:
- The state of any installed relay (On/Off)
- Water meter readings
- Conductivity reading
- Any additional sensor reading (ph, ORP)
- Any sensor alarms
- Any Additional 4-20mA input readings
- Any Additional 4-20 mA output reading
- Flow condition (and any other digital inputs)
The NexSys® controller has standard Ethernet capability through and HTML interface that allows 100% access to all features and control parameters of the controller.
The NexSys® remote access allows the user to alter, confirm and manipulate 100% of configurations.
All features, parameters, settings and functional requirements to operate, program and monitor the NexSys™ controller are accessible from the touch screen and DO NOT require the use of an external input, PC or device to operate or access. (BMS config requires use of interface program)
The NexSys® will be upgradeable to send E-service reports to a subscribed service (user to set up account with a service at their discretion).
The NexSys® displays operating values, via a color touch screen, color coded graphs for all sensor and relay operation times and readings with time and date stamps. User shall be able to manipulate graph via zoom and scroll features.
Is in qualification testing for UL and CSA Listed (ETL listing is acceptable)
NEMA 4X enclosure
Transformer power ratings of 120/240 VAC 50/60 Hz.
Release date: 30 March 2014
