Class Description

This is a comprehensive introductory course that provides entry-level as well as the experienced controls technician with the skills necessary to install, interface with, and operate a Carrier Comfort Network (CCN). The course begins with a review of basic control theory followed by a discussion of the standard algorithms used to control typical HVAC systems. Network configuration options and requirements, CCN architecture and standard communications protocol will also be covered in detail. Students are then introduced to the CCN family of stand-alone and networked controllers, learn their function within the network and how they are wired. The handheld System Pilot as well as Network Service Tool V software is used to interface with selected training simulators to alter set point tables, occupancy schedules and monitor algorithm performance. The i-Vu Web Based interface will be discussed as a part of this class. The class is a combination of classroom and simulator exercises. Students must furnish their own computer with the required software loaded before class. The information learned in this class provides students the tools and knowledge to install and maintain Carrier CCN systems quicker and operate them more efficiently.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify major CCN modules and factory mounted PICs.
  • Understand CCN architecture and rules for addressing devices.
  • Understand the principles and major building blocks for CCN networks.
  • Identify various algorithms for standard HVAC applications.
  • Determine what points and schedules are required for algorithm execution.
  • Synchronize network time and establish network broadcasters and acknowledgers.
  • Operate the System Pilot hand held interface tool with a digital controller.
  • Effectively use Network Service Tool V software to interface with a PIC.

A cumulative score of 70% is required to pass this course. The score is a combination of attendance, class participation, and a demonstration of skills and knowledge through quizzes and/or work sessions.

Suggested Prerequisites: Those attending should understand basic HVAC principles and have computer operating experience. Students will be provided with a laptop computer with the latest version of Network Service Tool V.
