Micro Control Systems (MCS) Controllers

Micro Control Systems Homepage The Micro Control Systems (MCS) Magnum Controller is factory installed on all chiller equipment. The controller automatically cycles compressors to maintain leaving water set point temperature over a wide variety of operating conditions. The large LCD display provides local system information for scheduled service and maintenance. Connections on the MCS controller allow building management systems interactive communication or monitoring of the unit. The MCS Micromag Controller is available for light commercial packaged units or split systems. The controller allows users to take advantage of AAON exclusive features and can be used for multiple different applications.

Outdoor Airflow Measurement System

Outdoor Airflow Measurement System Factory installed outdoor airflow measuring is available on AAON products. This system can be used with a factory provided AAON controller or with customer provided controls via an output signal. The Airflow Signal Processor provides an interface for controlling the system. The following documents provide information on starting up and maintaining the Outdoor Airflow Measurement System and Airflow Signal Processor.

Terminal Block or Customer Installed Controls is a low voltage terminal block with labeled connections provided for field connection to a thermostat or a field provided and installed control system. Factory installed isolation relays can be provided to prevent a voltage drop in the control circuit.

Factory Installed Customer Provided Controls is a feature available from AAON that allows you to specify the type and manufacturer of the controller to be used in your aaon equipment. The aaon sales representative and aaon applications personnel will review your specific control requirements to verify that the controller selected is capable of providing all inputs and outputs required to operate aaon equipment. By understanding the application and the controller selected for use, the aaon engineering department can verify if the controller is able to physically fit in the control cabinet along with the other required factory installed components. AAON will then integrate this controller into the equipment and create a custom wiring diagram specifically for your unit.

This option allows complete flexibility in controls used on the job and prevents jobs from being locked into proprietary controllers or manufacturer specific control strategies. Factory installed customer provided controls saves time and money at the job site by allowing aaon expert technicians who have knowledge of AAON equipment to install and wire the controls at the factory.
