Model EMOAC-5000


EMOAC Series


Economizer Minimum Outdoor Airflow Controller Module for Economizer Controllers with Analog Proportional Actuators

Controller Modules for Systems with an Airside Economizer

The EMOAC-5000 has an additional analog input and analog output compared to the EMOAC-4000. As a result, the OAC-5000 can support actuator feedback to the economizer controller or be used with analog CO2 sensor if feedback is not required. Like the EMOAC-4000, the EMOAC-5000 can be used with approved BACnet MS/TP CO2or occupancy counters.

The EMOAC-5000 can be provided with a single integrated IATDI duct probe, one or two integrated IAT-UI or IAT-US universal mount probes or an approved external BACnet MS/TP airflow measurement device.

The EMOAC-5000 interfaces with approved MS/TP BACnet CO2 sensors and occupancy counters when DCV is required. It can be used with an analog CO2 sensor if an actuator fault/ feedback signal is not required.

The EMOAC-5000 modulates the control signal to a proportional analog outdoor/return air damper actuator to maintain the minimum ventilation rate required whenever the economizer controller (by others) is in minimum outdoor air mode. The controller can be configured to maintain an unoccupied outdoor airflow setpoint to provide unoccupied pressurization.

Advanced logic and airflow measurement improves traditional CO2-DCV when demand control ventilation is required. The EMOAC-5000 controller resets the outdoor airflow setpoint between user defined minimum and maximum airflow limits to maintain either a user defined fixed CO2 level or variable airflow setpoint based on the population using a built-in CO2/airflow counting algorithm or external occupancy counter.

The EMOAC-5000 interfaces with most MS/TP BACnet building automation systems and supports full read/write privileges as a BACnet 1/8 load master. An RS-485 signal isolator is available when an isolated MS/TP network is required.


Minimum Outdoor Air Control (MOAC) Modes Supported

FLOW: Maintains a user defined airflow setpoint

CO2: Maintains a user defined CO2 level by resetting the outdoor airflow setpoint (requires a CO2 sensor)

CO2/OAF: Maintains a calculated outdoor airflow setpoint based on the estimated ventilation zone population (requires a CO2 sensor)

COUNT: Maintains a calculated outdoor airflow setpoint based on the occupancy counter population (requires an occupancy counter)

FIXED: Maintains a fixed damper position (no control)

PASS: Passes the economizer controller output signal (no control)

Unoccupied Air Control (UAC) Mode Option: Yes, maintains a user defined airflow setpoint

Economizer Controller Fault Signal Output: Yes (ECO FAULT=ON)

Note: If an economizer controller fault signal is required, an actuator feedback signal must be connected to AI2 and an analog input for a CO2 sensor is not available. Use an approved BACnet MS/TP sensor if CO2 measurement is required

Notification Alarms

“Unoccupied Mode” High/Low Airflow Alarm

“Minimum Outdoor Airflow Mode” High/Low Airflow Alarm

“All Modes” CO2 Alarm (requires a CO2 sensor)

“All Modes” System Trouble Alarm

Note: Alarms can be assigned to the contact closure relay
