KMC Connect: Application Wizard


[MUSIC] KMC Connect is our engineering and configuration
tool for the full line of KMC controllers and sensors. The software offers a variety
of time-saving features. In this video, we’re going to show you how you can use the application
library wizard to select, configure and deploy standard applications to our KMC Conquest
controllers. Using the application wizard is a three-step
process. With Selection, you choose from a list of features in the supplied application
library, narrowing the possibilities to the set that best fit the job requirements. Configuration customizes
and fine tunes the default settings for a chosen application. For Deployment, templates
are matched with and then written to individual controllers. In addition to configuring controllers, it
also contains a selection of documents that can be used to plan and commission a job. Let’s start with the Selection tab. Open the Applications tab and click the Selection
icon. Under Job Selection, either use the dropdown menu to find a job, or click New
Job and enter a name for the project. Let’s name ours XYZ. This example will for a VAV
controller. Under the Feature Selection Filter, select
the features for the job. You will see as you work down the page and choose features,
options that are not relevant will disappear from the list For our features, we’ll select a parallel
fan box with hot water coil reheat. Add patching application to save to job Next move on to the Document Selection area.
Here you select or clear check boxes next to each type of document available for the
job, such as data sheets, wiring diagrams and more. Let’s select a wiring diagram
for a VAV box. Now, let’s move on to the Matching Applications
area. Select the models that are the best fit for the application and click Add to save
them to the job. One thing to note, you can add more then one type of application to each
job. We’ll add a rooftop unit to this job, so
now we’ll need to go back to the selection feature and add a rooftop unit. We’ll also
select the features for the rooftop unit. The next step is Configuration. This sets
the values in the application for the actual points of interest, such as setpoints, fan
operation and VAV terminal unit parameters. To start, click on the Configuration tab.
Select the job and application from the drop-down menus. This adds the application to the template
list. Now you can make changes to the template, such as changing a default setpoint. Let’s change the default occupied setpoints
and unoccupied setpoints. Now is the time to make a clone of the template
for each target controller. Let’s say your job uses multiples of the same device, for
example, the same model of VAV controllers, but mounted on VAV units with different K-factors.
You can clone the template for each size of VAV terminal unit and edit the correct K-factor
for each. By clicking next, you advance to step 3 – Deployment. [Transition to Talent] One thing to note… The Selection and Configuration
applications can be used without connecting to a site, while Deployment requires you to
be connected, since this step matches the device templates to actual controllers in
the Network Manager list. Once again, select a job and application from
the drop-down menus. This adds the templates to the Device Template list. The application attempts to match the templates
to the controllers on the Network Manager list. This is done by either the device instance
or name. Once this is done, click Write to Devices. This may take several minutes, as
the templates are deployed to each matched controller. And that is how you configure controllers
with the Application Wizard in KMC Connect. For more information on KMC Connect, check
