Override the Damper or Flow of a Xenta 102-AX with a SNVT input


Manual override of the damper actuator position or the desired flow setpoint on a Xenta 102-AX can be accomplished with a network variable (SNVT) input.


Xenta 102-AX


There are times when the damper position or flow setpoint needs to be overridden from a supervisory controller.  It may be a special mode for Test & Balance, a smoke control sequence, or a special circumstance where the internal logic of the 102-AX must be ignored in some situation.


Manually controlling the Xenta 102-AX damper position, and flow value can be accomplished using the VAV_Controller.nviManOverride SNVT.

This is a three-part structured SNVT. Values for the state portion of the SNVT are:

  1. HVO_OFF disables override
  2. HVO_POSITION sets the damper position output to a desired percentage
  3. HVO_FLOW_VALUE sets the flow setpoint to a desired flow
  4. HVO_FLOW_PERCENT sets the flow setpoint to a desired percent of maximum flow
  5. HVO_OPEN fully opens the damper
  6. HVO_CLOSE fully closes the damper
  7. HVO_MINIMUM sets the flow setpoint to specified cooling minimum
  8. HVO_MAXIMUM sets the flow setpoint to specified cooling maximum

Values for percent and flow are used according to the selected state.

It is important to note that in versions greater than 2.1.2 no other auxiliary control will function when using nviManOverride. Example: if nviManOverride is set to control the damper to a fixed position, the external hot water heat or electric heat will not function.
