Schneider Electric – Modicon M171 – HVAC Controller
Modicon M171/M172 logic controllers: best-in-class for scalability and energy efficiency.
The Modicon M171/M172 logic controllers are available in 3 controller types:
Everything you need is embedded:
Thanks to a high degree of flexibility, installing additional modules is very easy - while keeping everything in a single configuration:
Reduced time to market.
The Modicon M171/M172-based solutions are faster and easier to deploy thanks to SoMachine HVAC 2.0, Schneider Electric’s single platform for programming, visualization, and commissioning. SoMachine HVAC 2.0 offers intuitive, ready-to-use application function blocks (AFB). When implemented together with the Tested, Validated, and Documented Architectures (TVDAs) from Schneider Electric, it greatly reduces design time.
SoMachine HVAC 2.0 provides advanced algorithms for greater energy efficiency in Modicon M171/M172-based automation. Dedicated AFBs include energy management, compressor management, fan management, coefficient of performance (COP) monitoring, and floating high pressure control as well as other HVAC- and pumping-related software libraries. Machine builders can simply apply the AFBs while freely developing codes and functions specific to their needs. Additionally, the USB ports on Modicon M171P and Modicon M172P make programming and debugging even easier.
Simplified integration and maintenance.
The new Modicon M171/M172 series offers a wide choice of connectivity options to support integration with a variety of BMS. A ready-to-connect device, the new Modicon M172P embeds Ethernet, Modbus and BACnet protocols as standard and LonWorks protocol as optional. Furthermore, maintenance is simplified thanks to the built-in WebVisu, visualization screens that are compatible with standard Web browsers to enable remote control of the applications from mobile devices.
