    Barber Colman HVAC Controls Conversion

    Hello all,

    I am a contractor at a client facility that still has Barber Colman (now Invensys) controls equipment running their Air Handling Units. They are using a computer that is running Windows '97 to access the system. To my understanding the topology is as follows: Invesys UNC-510-2 Network Controller to (2) Invensys MN800 controllers and (2) BC MZ2A Controllers. Somewhere in the mix is a BC panel with a ton of old relays and pneumatic controls.

    Client is wanting to move off of the Windows '97 PC because it is on it's last leg, but not ready to overhaul the system until the next shutdown. Everything in the facility is going Rockwell. Is there any way to integrate a Rockwell controller that can be used in place of the existing controllers?

    Any and all help is appreciated as I am new to all things HVAC, thanks.

    Rockwell PLCs, that's really overkill.

    How would I integrate a rockwell PLC into this setup? Would it take the place of the GCM or each of the controllers?
