    Trane RCTA200 Relay outputs

    Hi,
    Looking for some advise on Trane RCTA200 units connectivity.

    I have 4 of the above using local CH.530 HMI which are then connected to an central control unit called Tracer Summit.
    This Tracer View unit appears to be working its 10 yrs old all I want to do is get some local customer relays interface outputs to drive onto My BMS.

    We do this already with York YCAS chillers simple two wire connection onto the customer interface this connects straight to a BMS outstation, The out puts are Chiller run, Sys 1 fault , Sys 2 fault, Sys 3 Fault


    Any Ideas??

    The RTAC uses the CH530 control platform. Volt free contacts are provided via an optional card. Check to see if your chillers have them, if not they can be added. As the system has a Tracer to provide comms and diagnostics they may not have been ordered. The relays are configurable with a laptop to show run, fault, etc. A laptop will also be needed to bind in the cards.

    I am not letting go of my magic screwdriver!!!!!!!!!!!

    you will need a quad elay
    and have to download techview.
    then you will need a rs232 connector
    or a usb to rs232
    I like the STARTECH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    some rs232 to usb connectors suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If the "BMS" is Summit, that information should already be available?!? Does the customer not have a workstation/PC?
