Which Tstat to use?
Q: I am engineering a retrofit project and trying to see if the FW-08 will fit on this job.
• BACnet MSTP daisy chain
• Pressure dependent – floating actuator
• Single duct – heat/cool
• Which Tstat line do you recommend to use with this?
A: If you need a VAV controller then YOU MUST use FW-8V which comes with pressure pick sensor.
FW series DOES NOT do MSTP server. You cannot hook it up to an existing MSTP bus. It only does BACnet IP server.
If you are having a floating actuator, YOU MUST use a FR-02 to control the actuator.
You have many options for a Tstat. By default the apps support normal 10K sensor and 10K potetentiometer slider for setpoint adjustment.
As for NTRC Tstat, it CAN become a BACnet device to the FW-08V, but there is no way to show the occupancy via the screen. It is just a normal 8 segment LCD display.
