Introduction

Thank you for buying the Delta Controls ORCAview® program. ORCAview operates in a graphical Windows world and has powerful facilities management tools. We trust that this product will satisfy your building control needs.

We are continuing our efforts to more fully express the vision Integrated Facilities Management Solutions Simplified in the ORCAview product.

Description

The ORCAview software is a native Windows® application and has been written to look and operate like most Windows applications.

The operator can view project data graphically or with the interactive Microsoft Windows Explorer™ style Navigator. Both these interfaces to the DDC system provide real-time data to the PC, with updates as quick as five second if needed. Real-time data can be shown in a group of objects, single objects, multiple objects, on-line graphics, or in any combination.

The user interface has an object-oriented design. This approach allows quick access to menus by just clicking on an object using the right mouse button.

At the click of a button, the operator can change from viewing a graphic to editing the graphic using the optional Illustrator tool created by Delta Controls. This makes it easier to draw and test graphics.

For more detailed information on the drawing program Illustrator, see the Illustrator Technical Reference Manual which is included on the release CD.

ORCAview currently has four methods to access a DDC system through Windows networking. The LAN/WAN connections from the PC to the DDC system are:

BACnetIP (UDP/IP)

BACnet Ethernet(10 Mbits/s)

BACnet MS/TP (Up to 76.8K Baud) PC to controller CON-768/ CON - 768BT

BACnet PTP RS-232 (Up to 38.4Kbytes/s) Local and Dial-in/Dial-out

Suite Installer Function

Suite Installer Function

This section lists the scenarios that the V3.40 Suite Installer supports and the ones it does not. The aim is to provide information that helps to make the behavior of the installer clearer.

Supported Scenarios

All scenarios will be supported for both default and custom install locations. If you change only the disk drive letter in a default path, ORCAview still treats the path as the default directory. For example, you might just change the C: to D: and leave the rest of the default path unchanged. A custom install is one that has the names in the default path changed.

Before you begin your installation you will need to do the following:

Choose a directory – You may let the install program place ORCAview in the default directory or choose a different destination. See OWS Default Directories on page 1–71–7

If the directory does not exist, then the install program will create it.

Determine the name of the site. For example, you could enter International Airport.

Determine the name of the workstation on your local network. For example, you could enter Main ORCAview PC.

Determine the number of the workstation on the network. See the following section titled Workstation Number.

Workstation Number

Every device on the same site must have a unique controller number. ORCAview calls this the workstation number. The PC that will receive the new ORCAview installation must have a unique workstation number.

Note: Choose the workstation number carefully, as you must re-install the software to change it. To avoid conflicting workstation numbers, maintain a list of device numbers for large sites.

Devices requiring unique numbers include the following:

The PC where the new ORCAview is being installed must have a unique workstation number assigned to it. The workstation number must:

be different than any other workstation number,

be different than any other controller address,

not be 0, 254, 65534 or 65535

not be greater than 4194302 if only V3 hardware

not be within any Micro Panel range.

Any V3 DCU that is used as an IP router to local V2 devices (DCU's or Turbos, etc) must be addressed lower than 32767.

If the Version 2 protocol is being installed, the workstation number must:

not be greater than 32766 (If greater than 32766, then a message on the dialog warns that this Workstation Address is invalid with Version 2 networks.)

not include any number from 250 to 255,

not be 999

If an invalid number is typed in during install, it will be increased to the next valid number or decreased if it cannot go any higher. For example, if you enter 254 for a workstation number for a site that has V2 Hardware, the system changes it to

256.

The ORCA Hardware architecture is based on a hierarchical design. This allows for simple and efficient communications in large Wide Area Networks and small stand-alone systems. The ORCA® architecture is extremely flexible and can be built up in a variety of configurations.

There are four levels to the ORCA hardware architecture: AREA level, SYSTEM level, SUBNET level, and LINKnet level. AREA Level controllers are primarily used to break-up large segments of a WAN. One controller per segment may be configured as an AREA Level controller.

System Architecture

1–45

SYSTEM Level controllers are used to logically distribute networks into manageable building segments. SYSTEM Level Controllers are I/O controllers for major equipment systems such as AHU’s. SYSTEM Level controllers have Real-Time Clocks, EIA-232 serial ports, and battery backup. This will allow the individual segments to function normally if network cabling is damaged and communications between SYSTEM Level controllers is not possible or interrupted. Only DSC and DSM model controllers can be placed at the SYSTEM Level. Any DSC model can have a subnet of controllers beneath it. DAC model controllers cannot be installed in the SYSTEM Level.

Ethernet – BACnet MS/TP

The following architecture illustrates the flexibility of the Delta ORCA Native BACnet control system. Here, two SYSTEM level controllers have the Ethernet option. This allows them to route from Ethernet to BACnet MS/TP at both the SYSTEM Level (NET1 MS/TP port) and the SUBNET Level (NET2 MS/TP port). OWS 3.40 supports the newer enteliBUS™ family of controllers including the enteliTOUCH™ HMI and associated enteliBUS hardware.

Introduction

Operator Workstation Connections

This diagram shows the possible workstation connections. A distinctive connection point is the BACstat Service Port. Using Delta’s 232/485 converter (CON-768) or the newer CON-768BT you can connect any laptop running ORCAview software to the BACstat Service Port and see the entire Delta Controls Network. This simplifies commissioning and troubleshooting, allowing the Engineer to connect a workstation through a BACstat® near the problem area.

There are also several standard connection points such as EIA-232 ports using BACnet PTP, directly or through a modem.

ORCAview connects directly to the Ethernet network through a Standard Ethernet Network Interface Card connected to the ORCAview PC. It is also possible to use ORCAview to connect to the network across the Internet using BACnet/IP protocols

There is a service port on most Delta ORCA hardware. This service port supplies power to the EIA-232/485 converter (CON-768) or wireless Bluetooth to wired RS-485 CON-768BT converter so that the operator does not have to provide a separate power supply for powering the converter.

ORCAweb and the newer enteliWEB™ provide additional means to access a network.

C:\Documents and Settings\Public\Delta Controls\3.40\Sites\International Airport\Graphics

If you use spaces you must use double quotes to enclose the part with spaces.

graphic=”my start graphic.gpc”

For example, a valid desktop shortcut might be:

For Windows 7 – 32 bit:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Delta Controls\3.40\System\ORCAview.exe" graphic="Propane Gas Gauges.gpc" For windows XP:

"C:\Program Files\Delta Controls\3.40\System\ORCAview.exe" graphic="Graphic with Basic Shapes.gpc"

For a programmer, this feature allows an outside script to determine what graphic

to load. You can use a macro to open a particular graphic based on conditions.

This behavior is not dependent on a predefined SUA.

A graphic can be launched from outside the OWS.

For example, from the CMD prompt:

Orcaview.exe graphic=mygraphic1.gpc Orcaview.exe graphic=mygraphic2.gpc Orcaview.exe graphic=mygraphic3.gpc

The previous code will launch the OWS if it is not already running and open these three specified graphics.

If a starting graphic is also defined in the User Data tab of the SUA object for a

user, both graphics opens when OWS is started from a shortcut but the command

line graphic opens on top and has focus.

Make sure that you have the correct Ethernet card selected. On the Logon dialog, press the Advanced button and select the card in the Connect Using field.

Delta Version 2 Protocol is not Enabled

By default, for new installations, ORCAview will assume that the Version 2 protocol is disabled. When you enter the login name and password, ORCAview provides access to ORCAview alone. It will not allow access to any of the Version 2 devices on the network.

If you want access to a V2 controller on a network, you must manually enable the Version 2 protocol and designate a V2 panel as the Security Panel.
