I have installed over 300 FXVMAs (N2). I am using the FX Builder Application Wizard to generate APDs for terminal boxes. These are mostly fan powered electric heat and cool only vavs. There are over 12 instances where the controller was programmed, commissioned as fully functional, even balanced and days later (sometimes 1 day sometimes 5 or 6) regardless of the APD or box type the Supply Flow will read no value other than 0, causing the box to open fully trying to maintain min cool cfm and thus overcooling the space. The wierd thing is, when it acts like this I upload the original APD, set the setpoints and pickup gain and the box is fine from here on out. This has occured at multiple buildings over the past year. There was one case where I had this re-occur twice and I replaced the controller and its been fine since.

Balancing is done with the MUI tool. I know its not something the balancer is doing through the tool because some have exhibited this behavior prior to balancing.

I'm unable to find out why some small portion of these controllers behaves like this after a time period of being functional in the field. Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, or other input? I do have a box in the field today that is exhibiting this activity. I trended supply flow and it just dropped to zero at a certain time and never returned. Meanwhile its overcooling the room and its at 100% open with 1.5"wc in the duct.

My second question, I have read that people use the JACE as a router to program bacnet devices remotely. Can this be done with N2? Are there any documents or steps to do so?


Thanks
