GEA MATRIX®.LON MATRIX.Net network

4 MATRIX.Net network
This chapter contains information about the MATRIX.Net and how to set up the
network correctly.
The MATRIX.Net is a network that connects various components of the GEA
control system (network users) via a data bus.
All information required for control and regulation is exchanged between users
using this network.
Network users can consist of the following:
– Controllers
– Operator panels
– Global modules/central timer
– WEB interface
– Service tools

4.1 Group structure


A group consists of a minimum of two and a maximum of 20 users (operator
panel, 16 air treatment units, valve module, DV module and LON® module).
This means for example that an operator panel and a controller/unit form a group.
However, a group can also be made up of a LON® module and a controller/unit.
In this case, the LON® module transmits the group set point and actual values.
On units incorporating MATRIX 3000 and MATRIX 4000, a group can also be
formed by replacing the operator panel with a global module such as
MATRIX.LON.

At its maximum extent, the network can consist of:


– a maximum of 16 unit groups – See “Topologies of the MATRIX.Net network”
on page 18
– two digital input modules (MATRIX.DI)
– two analogue input modules (MATRIX.AI)
– two digital output modules (MATRIX.DO)
– a central timer (MATRIX.CLOCK)
– a return air management (MATRIX.EM)
– up to 16 LON®modules (MATRIX.LON).
Each group may be assigned 1 MATRIX.LON module only.
Any assignment of the unit groups and the global modules in the network is
possible. The following is decisive for the assignment of the units, operator panels
and global modules to a group as opposed to the physical assignment:
– the setting of the group address switch (refer to the chapter “Commissioning”
in the relevant operation manual)
– or the assignment of a module input and output to a unit group via the
MATRIX.PC service tool (refer to the online help for the service software)

4.3 Topologies of the MATRIX.Net network


The structure of the MATRIX.Net setup can be linear or linear with a stub line.
All units equipped with the MATRIX system can access this data bus.
The data bus must be terminated at both physical ends to prevent reflections,
which can interfere with data transfer. Switchable bus terminating resistors are
integrated into the relevant printed circuit boards to ensure reliable termination –
refer to the chapter “Connecting MATRIX.Net” in the relevant operation manuals.

4.4 MATRIX.Net network setup

4.4.1 Data transfer cable


When setting up the MATRIX.NET use only data transfer cables that comply with
DIN 19245 T3 and EN 50170 with twisted pair cores and braided shielding.

RECOMMENDATION
We recommend the following data transfer cables:
Manufacturer: HELUKABEL
Type: CAN-BUS flexible 2 x 2 x ... mm²

4.4.2 Cable lengths


Irrespective of the cable cross-section and number of users, the maximum cable
length including stub lines must not exceed 600 m.
The length of a stub line must not exceed 25 m. The maximum overall length of
all stub lines must not exceed 150 m.

NOTE
Repeaters must be used in the network if there are more than 110 users. To
increase the length of the cable special bridges are required that decouple
telegram transfer times between the network segments.

The cross-section of the bus cable may need to be modified depending on the
cable length of the MATRIX.Net!

Cable length Cable type

4.4.3 Shielding/earthing

• Mount the data transfer cable (MATRIX.Net) on one side in the GEA climate
control and air treatment units using shielding clips to ensure the best pos sible
electrical contact.
• Connect the shielding with the shielding clip to a large earth surface area!
• Both sides of the shielding should be applied in systems with a large network
scope, or if high levels of EMC interference are likely. Before doing so, it must
be ensured that no potential differentials occur.

GEA MATRIX®.LON Assembly and installation

5 Assembly and installation

5.1 Planning of installation and switch cabinet setup

Arrangement of the The positioning of components in the switch cabinet influences to a large extent
components the trouble-free functioning of the module.
During planning and implementation steps must be taken to ensure that power
and control components are arranged separately. Examples of power
components are:
– Contactor
– Coupler components
– Transformers
– Frequency inverters
– Converters
– DC power supply units.
In order to effectively prevent electromagnetic interference the switch cabinet
should be divided into areas with varying levels of power and interference.
Cable routing Always route power cables (cables carrying high currents – to converters,
and wiring contactors and solenoid valves for example) and control and signal cables (e.g.
cables to digital inputs) as far as possible from each other. This avoids capacitive
and inductive interference.
If cables cannot be routed separately the first priority must be to shield the cables
that cause interference.
To prevent interference:
• Avoid laying parallel sections of cables with different power ratings.
• As a basic rule, separate AC voltage cables from DC voltage cables.
• Comply with the minimum distances:
Between power cables/supply cables
... and signal cables: at least 10 cm
... and data/analogue cables: at least 30 cm
• The feed and return cables of an electric circuit should be laid side by side.
The sum of the currents is immediately reduced to zero due to the opposing
flow of current. The resulting fields are compensated.

DANGER OF DAMAGE DUE TO ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE!
Electrostatic discharges via/at electronic components may lead to their
destruction. You must therefore ensure that you are free of electrostatic charge
before connecting the MATRIX.LON module or touching parts of the module.
To do this grasp exposed and earthed metal parts such as radiators or pipes.

• Connect 24 V DC power supply to terminals 95 and 99.


95 Ground

99 +24 V DC

• Do not switch the power on! Switch the power supply


only after once all installation work is complete.

7.6 Configuration of objects and network variables in the MATRIX.LON module


In contrast to most components with a fixed configuration, the MATRIX.LON
offers the option of configuring network variables. During this process the
variables required for the relevant application may be selected from a “pool of
variables”. The number of LON® nodes (MATRIX.LON) required can therefore be
reduced to a minimum.
To create a configuration the following steps must be taken:
Step 1: Selection of objects – see “Object selection” in the “Plug-in help topics”.
Step 2: Select network variables – see “Generating a network variable” in the “Plug-in
help topics”.

A maximum of 16 air treatment unit groups can be networked using one
MATRIX.LON module providing the requirements are straightforward.
For this 57 variables (29 inputs and 28 outputs) can be defined. 5 additional
variables, such as the time and external temperature, are permanently assigned
for administration purposes and apply equally for all groups.
A maximum of 16 MATRIX.LON modules can be used in a MATRIX.Net. Each
group may be assigned 1 MATRIX.LON module only.

NOTE!
All available network variables are listed in the following description with a short
description of their function.
For a detailed description of all variations refer to the “Plug-in help topics”.

All network variables have the prefix “nvi” or “nvo”:

nvi = Network Variable Input = Input variable; LON® network -> MATRIX.Net
nvo = Network Variable Output = Output variable; MATRIX.Net -> LON® network

All input variables are subject to a configurable connection monitoring. Once the
monitoring period has expired the input variable previously received is set to
invalid.
Minimum and maximum transfer times can be configured via the MATRIX.LON
plug-in for all input and output variables – see “7.5 MATRIX.LON plug-in – main

Planning information GEA MATRIX®.LON

8.4 Classification of objects and network variables


Certain restrictions exist with respect to the configuration of the MATRIX.LON that
theoretically cannot be overcome or accommodated by the plug-in.
The following points in particular must be observed at the planning stage if several
MATRIX.LON are to be used in a MATRIX.Net:
– An object of one type may only be used once for a sub-network (= group,
room, …).
– A FCU(FB) object may not be jointly configured with a MATRIX operator panel
in a sub-network as only one operator panel per sub-network is permitted.
– Only one Temp object per MATRIX.Net may exist as the ambient temperature
is a characteristic that is common to all sub-networks.
– An ST object may only be used for a sub-network once as only one operator
panel per sub-network is permitted.
However, the simultaneous configuration of all object types for a sub-network is
permitted as MATRIX controllers can process data from different sources.

8.5 Number of MATRIX.LON required for each MATRIX.Net


The restrictions stated in “8.4 Classification of objects and network variables” and
the requirements to be satisfied for each sub-network determine the number of
MATRIX.LON modules that are necessary for each MATRIX.Net.

8.5.1 VariableNV function block


In theory the following combinations are possible for each sub-network with the
same configuration, with and without ambient temperature (Temp object)
respectively:

NVi per NVo per Temp object Temp object Max. number per Required number of
sub-network sub-network NVi NVo MATRIX.LON group MATRIX.LON with 16 groups
1 1 yes yes 16 1
2 2 yes no 14 2
2 2 yes yes 13 2
3 3 yes yes 9 2
4 3 yes yes 7 3
4 4 yes no 7 3
4 4 yes yes 6 3
5 5 yes yes 5 4
...

At the layout stage it must also be considered that one network variable can also
contain several data points (see “9.2.16 nvoUnitStatus” on page 50).

36 VK_2052763GB • Subject to modifications • Status 12/2005


GEA MATRIX®.LON Planning information

8.5.2 Inclusion of the GEAMATRIX function block


The above table only refers to the network variables of the VariableNV function
block.
The network variables of the GEAMATRIX function block can also be used.
These include in particular the nviTimeSet (see page 42) and the nvoNetStates
(see page 47).
This means that when operating and error messages are requested checks can
be carried out to determine whether the nvoNetStates are already capable of
supplying sufficient information for the relevant unit.

8.6 Priorities
As a basic rule, the set points specified via the LON® system (building
management system) have overriding priority when compared to the set points in
the MATRIX.Net or local set points.
Local actual values on the other hand have priority over actual values supplied by
the LON® system (building management system).
The following exceptions to this should however be observed:
– The bypass function of the local operator panel overwrites the Unoccupied
command from the building management system for a specific period of time
“X” which has a default value of 120 minutes and can be configured using the
GEA MATRIX® system service tools.
– The “rapid ventilation” function of the operator panel overwrites conflicting
specifications from the building management system.

With unit groups, the individual values of the cooling valves are sent to the
MATRIX.LON, then transferred as an average value to the LON side.
This value is transferred directly where a central valve is used. Where units with
DX-evaporators are used, the control variable for the refrigeration circuit is
transferred instead of the position of the valve on the upstream side.

Value range: 0 to 100 %


With on/off valves only 0 %
or 100 % is transferred. The value 163.83 % is invalid.

9.2.2 nvoDevInputStates

9.4 Light, damper and scene controls


The MATRIX system can be used to control LON® actuators by other
manufacturers. This function can be configured via the plug-in for the
MATRIX.LON module.
During this process the menu structure in the OP50 / OP51 operator panels is
extended using the MATRIX.LON plug-in so that new menu items are added to
the OP5x display. These menu items can be used to send data to LON® actuators
by other manufacturers – FOS (Foreign Object System) functionality.
The menu items and texts are configured with the assistance of the MATRIX.LON
plug-in via the control objects (see “Plug-in help topics”: ST object).

9.4.1 Control of Lon actuators via MATRIX OP50 / OP51


Digital and analogue operations, such as lighting control with specific scenes and
damper control specifying angle of rotation etc., can be triggered via the MATRIX
OP50 / OP51 operator panels.
Containers are available in the MATRIX operator panel with integrated display
(OP5x) for the basic menu text (<FOS_MNUITEMSTR>), the designation of
menu functions (<FOS_STRING_0x>) and the message itself. The basic menu
for the control of external systems is only displayed if the first character of the
string variable <FOS_MnuItemStr> (EEPROM) is not equal to “/0”. All
subordinate menu functions only appear on the display if the first character of the
menu function text (EEPROM) is not equal to “/0” and the message type in the
container is not equal to 0xFF (invalid object type). A maximum of 8 menu
functions can be entered.

The values for the nvoSetting and nvoScene object types must be assigned
<FOS_MnuItemStr>
according to what is expected by the corresponding actuators for this menu
<FOS_String_01> function by the LON. The content of the message container is sent directly to the
<FOS_String_02> MATRIX OP50 / OP51 via the gateway on the LON side when the menu function
<FOS_String_03>
is called up.
<FOS_String_04>
The following functions can be implemented, depending on the object type stored
in the message containers:
– Send a Type SNVT_Scene message
– Send a Type SNVT_Setting message
– Send a Type SNVT_Switch message
The SNVT_Scene and SNVT_Setting types are sent immediately when the SET
button is pressed. An additional dialogue opens with the SNVT_Switch type
where users can modify the value then send it by pressing the SET button again.
The “nvoSwitch”, “nvoSetting” and “nvoScene” variables can be freely defined.
This is described further in the plug-in help topics.
