Product IntroductionTracer SC System ArchitectureTracer SC is at the heart of aTracer building automation system.Tracer SC provides a web-basedfront end for your facility that can be accessed with most PCs, tablets and smart phones.Tracer SCincludes powerful, factory-engineered applications that are designed to provide the perfectbalance of energy efficiency and user comfort.Tracer SC communicates with a variety ofTrane andnon-Trane controllers using open, standard protocols, including BACnet and LonTalk. A diagramdepicting the high-level system architecture is shown in Figure 1.Figure 1. Tracer building automation system structurePC/Tablet/Phone withWeb Browser6BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 2013

User InterfaceTheTracer SC user interface provides an easy way for building operators to set up, operate, andmodify a building automation system.The home page (Figure 2) contains system statusinformation and links to navigate to all areas of the system.The main features of the user interface are described in this section.Figure 2. Tracer SC user eeFull screenoptionInternalscroll barSystemnavigationlinksAlarms and EventsEvents are occurrences that are detected by aTracer building automation system.They can includediagnostics, critical operating conditions, as well as routine procedures.An event that is triggered by the detection of an abnormal or critical operating condition isgenerally considered to be an alarm. If a critical alarm exists, an alarm icon flashes in the globalnavigation bar, which remains visible in the right corner of every page of the user interface.When the system detects an event, data about the event appears in a log on the Alarms and Eventspage (Figure 3, p. 8).The data displayed in the log includes when and where the event occurredand whether the operator is required to acknowledge it. An operator can also use the log to addcomments about events. Column headings can be used to sort and filter events.They can also beremoved or exported from the log.BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 20137

User InterfaceFigure 3. Alarms and Events logThe Alarms and Events log has seven categories that can be used to sort and filter them.The logcan be sorted on any of these categories including, for example, by priority. Filtering can be usedto view only the alarms from a specific piece of equipment, for example, or those received at aspecific time or from a specific alarm category.Events can also be routed by e-mail to selected system operators. Event routing rules can beconfigured so that events respond to specific conditions when they occur.Data LogsData logs, also referred to as trends, allow users to produce a variety of data samples at definedintervals to show the historical and current status of the facility. Data logs record, in real-time, thevalue of a data point in the system and the time at which the value was recorded.Data logs can be viewed in real-time, or at a later time.They can also be printed and saved. Withthe proper security access, system users can configure (create, delete, and update) and manage(clear, enable, and disable) data logs in the system. (See Figure 4, p. 9 for an example of a data log.)8BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 2013

User InterfaceFigure 4. Data Logs exampleSchedulesScheduling is one of a facility’s most important energy-saving strategies. It ensures that equipmentruns only when needed. Use schedules to: Keep equipment running at minimal energy-use levels on weekends and holidays Create exceptions to the standard schedule Perform optimal start and stop of equipment to optimize energy use while maintaining comfortrequirements Change setpoints at specific times of dayFrom the home page, you can select: All Schedules, which shows all schedules in the system Active Schedules, which shows only the active schedules in the systemFigure 5, p. 10 shows an example of an All Schedules page.BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 20139

User InterfaceFigure 5. SchedulesOverridesA typical challenge that facility managers have is maintaining the balance between automatic andmanual system control.Tracer SC provides multiple methods of overriding equipment,applications and points while also ensuring that the proper balance of automatic and manualsystem control is kept.These methods include:Permanent OverridesThe most typical use of a permanent override is through applications.Tracer SC provides the abilityto determine which user or application has performed an override to quickly determine who hasoverridden a setpoint.Temporary OverridesA common challenge in facilities is inadvertent overrides.Tracer SC provides a default overrideoption for users that allow an override to expire after a period of time.This ensures that temporaryoverrides do not inadvertently become permanent overrides.All items in Override ReportIt can be difficult to track down overrides that have become permanent and are causing a facilityto act differently than a facility manager expects.Tracer SC includes a standard report that allowsa user to quickly identify all points within the system that have been overridden. See Figure 6, p. 11.10BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 2013

User InterfaceFigure 6. All Items in Override ReportReportsStandard reports forTrane equipment are available fromTracer SC.These reports provide avaluable source of data that can be used for record-keeping and troubleshooting.Report types include: Site reports VAS commissioning reports Points reports Chiller reportsReport features include: Scheduling reports to run during specific date periods and run frequencies Specifying file storage options for scheduled reports Exporting reports to save to your PC as CSV, HTML, or PDF files Editing scheduled reportsSee Figure 7, p. 12.BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 201311

User InterfaceFigure 7.ReportsGraphics and the Tracer Graphics EditorWith theTracer Graphics Editor (TGE), available through theTracerTU service tool, users cancreate, edit, and publish graphics for use onTracer SC. Graphics on theTracer SC are used tomonitor and control building equipment and applications.They can display data related to climate,lighting, and other controllable operations.They can be used to change setpoints and to overrideequipment operation.TGE can be used to align graphical elements, determine which elements appear on top, andperform cut, copy, and paste functions.Graphics can include: Any data that is available in the system as a numerical or text value Analog values that can change colors if they deviate from a desired value Multiple graphic images in JPEG, GIF, and animated GIF formats Visual elements from the building, such as floor plans or exterior views from CAD drawings Digital photography in JPG and GIF formats Animated images to represent binary and analog values Target buttons that provide links to related sources User controls including push buttons, check boxes, drop-down list boxes, and entry fieldsGraphics can be grouped in a logical way to simulate navigation through the building automationsystem. See Figure 8, Figure 9, and Figure 10 as examples.12BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 2013

User InterfaceNavigation TreeThe navigation tree contains the logically ordered and grouped content of all the elements of yourHVAC system.The navigation tree populates automatically when spaces, systems, points, andequipment are installed. A navigation tree provides an alternate way to navigate through the userinterface (Figure 11).The navigation tree consists of nodes, display text, and icons.You build the tree by choosingdisplay text for nodes, arranging the nodes, and assigning associated graphics to them.Thegraphics represent equipment and areas of the facility.Figure 11. Navigation tree exampleClick to open thenavigation treeClick to expand thecontents of a nodeUse the edit bar tomove nodes,rename nodes,add graphics, orremove itemsfrom the treeUser SecurityA sophisticated password system protects aTracer system from unauthorized access. Operatorsare assigned a role, which defines their access rights. Operators have access only to those featureswhich are defined in their roles. Several predefined roles can be selected from theTracer SCinterface and roles can also be customized. An operator with administrative-level security canmanage users and roles and has the ability to reset passwords.BAS-PRC031-EN, 10 Jun 201315

System ControlTracer SC includes a powerful system control engine. EveryTracer SC ships with several factoryengineered HVAC applications, support forTrane Earthwise Systems, and a powerful customgraphical programming language.Area ApplicationThe Area application coordinates groups of equipment that represent the tenant or occupantorganization within a building, which allows for standard calculations/functions and a simplifieduser interaction with the facility.The Area application allows users to assign unit controllers, binaryoutputs, and binary values as members of a common area.The area application can be configuredto use multiple algorithms, along with area temperatures and humidity inputs, to make aneconomizing decision.The Area application also supports: Optimal start/stop Humidity pulldown Night purge Unoccupied heating/cooling set-points Unoccupied humidify/dehumidify Timed override functionsAdditionally, the Area application allows users to efficiently perform a single operation, such aschanging a setpoint, creating a schedule, performing an override, and apply it to all members ofthe area.
