    Thanks, Dave for the input. I am on the site now and will check the version on the PCG controllers. I believe the FX 60s are already on a UPS, but I will confirm that while I am here. Thanks again.

    My bad, I believe I was wrong on the way these dampers work.
    I believe that power comes thru on the common(blue) and then the path
    Is completed either thru the cw or ccw.

    As I understand these systems, they have 24 volts at the damper all the time and the voltage path is completed thru the common side. These are older vavs with the round damper.
