Magnum 12V Controllers

The MCS-MAGNUM-12 is a durable microprocessor based controller designed for the hostile environments in the HVAC/R industry. It is designed to be the primary manager of the package it is controlling. The Magnum provides flexibility with setpoints and control options that can be selected prior to commissioning a system or when the unit is live and functioning. Alarms, LCD and touch displays, and other human machine interfaces are given in a clear and simple language that informs the user as to the status of the controller.

The MCS-MAGNUM-12 is a master control board that can be paired with a keypad and display. Complementing the Magnum micro controller are the MCS-IO-BASE/-EXT, MCS-RO-BASE/-EXT, MCS-SI-BASE/-EXT, and MCS-MODBUS-IO-12 expansion boards. This allows for system expansion to a maximum of 112 inputs and 80 outputs. Communication with these units occurs at 38,400 baud over the MCS-I/O port, which is dedicated to this purpose. A RS-485 port is also provided for communication with Building Management Systems (BMS). Other features include the integration of BACnet IP, Modbus IP and Modbus RTU into the Magnum.

MCS-MODBUS-IO-12

Part Number MCS-MODBUS-IO-12
Description MCS-MODBUS-IO-12, mounts with four #6 sheet metal screws through nylon collars at corners of board. The MCS-MODBUS-IO-12 gives the MCS-MAGNUM-12 the ability to act as a Modbus Master using the Modbus RTU Protocol. This allows the MCS-MAGNUM-12 to communicate to Modbus slave devices (such as Variable Frequency Drives, Compressors, etc.) to send and access parameters. The MCS-MODBUS-IO-12 performs like an MCS-RO-BASE and MCS-SI-BASE to the MCS-MAGNUM-12. This allows the MCS-MAGNUM-12 to control 10 relays, 4 analog outputs and read 16 sensors inputs. Multiple MCS-MODBUS-IO-12 boards may be connected to the MCS-MAGNUM-12 following the MCS-I/O standards.
