    You can use the same software and cable that you use for the RTAC.

    no condensor fans or fins on the RTWD and you occasionally have to pull pudding samples and send them in for analysis!

    Some of the pudding setpoints will have to be changed with the pudding software and with the pudding cable.

    Dear All Masters of HVAC,

    I am new in this field. I am a Facility Manager and basically an Electrical Engineer, interested in solving control circuit issues.

    We have three numbers of 400 TR RTHD Chillers from Trane.
    I want to know that, can we do all maintenance like replacement of spares (sensors, Expansion Valves) with the help of Tech View TV. 14 without the Help of Trane Local Service Technicians.

    Please advice.

    Gireesh,

    "Basically an Electrical Engineer?"- alright. Yep, you can do all that you're looking to do without the help of Trane (or mechanical conractor). What you have to ask yourself is "How well do I know what I am looking at ?" RTHD's are very sensitive chillers, not to doubt your ability, make sure you have a back up plan in case problems arise. Make sure you do daily logs and keep a close eye on tower control.

    Thank You Very much Sir.

    At present the temperature is showing in Degree Fahrenheit . Is it possible to change to Degree Celsius.

    I'm an HVAC tech and basically a mechanical engineer and yes, you can do all the maintenance yourself. Like txhvac said, you need to know what your doing though.
