Alarms in CBAS

Alarms in CBASAll points in CBAS give you the ability to setup an Alarm to show when the point is in a condition that it shouldn’t be in, or at least warrants a notification. Alarms are always on a red banner at the top of the CBAS program if setup to be acknowledged. Otherwise, only the status part of the point turns red. Yellow banners are considered Troubles, not Alarms. These are generated by the system based on system problems or controller communication\power activity. These “Troubles” cannot be turned off.

What is Optimal Start/Stop and How Does it Work?

Optimal Start/Stop is used to anticipate the heating or cooling needs of a space by starting equipment early enough to reach setpoint just at the beginning of scheduled occupancy. The Optimal Start/Stop function in CBAS does this by calculating the difference between the actual temperature and the occupied temperature setpoint.
