Deluxe - Price Intelligent Controller
for Fan Coils PIC-FC
The PIC-FC is a standalone or networkable,
fully digital and configurable controller.
This is the ultimate solution for sequence
controlled operation, monitoring and
control possibilities. The PIC-FC is a
cutting edge control package that offers
a new level of zone control which can be
applied to any Price fan coil or blower coil
model. An advanced and configurable
proportional integral (PI) controller allows
for exceptional user comfort and energy
efficiency. Installation of the controller and
thermostat is simple and error proof with
RJ-45 (network type) connections to the
thermostat and BACnet network.
The PIC-FC is designed with a modular
architecture. Options such as BACnet
networking are offered as 'add-on modules'.
This allows flexibility to the customer
by providing both value in the 'core'
controller as well as powerful control and
communication options with the use of the
Any PIC-FC ordered with the BACnet option
will ship with the appropriate module
installed and mounted. Modules may also
be field mounted and connected to the PICFC
with a single ribbon-type cable.
The PIC-FC is available with several
thermostat options, allowing the designer
to match the specific needs of the customer.
Every model has an RJ-12 service port that
allows for setup and configuration access
without having to access the plenum.
The PIC-FC has a 0-10 vdc fan output which
can be used in conjunction with the Price fan
switching relay (FC-PSC3) in order to adjust
the fan during the operational sequence. It is
also available with a temperature thermistor
which can be used to achieve a heat-cool
changeover by monitoring the water supply
or used to maintain a constant discharge air
The Price LINKER setup tool (combined
with FREE software) can be used to
reconfigure the PIC-FC from this service
port. A standalone setup tool, LCD-SETUP,
is available. Alternative methods of
reconfiguration include LCD thermostats
and BACnet software.
