Contatto

From HSYCO
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The CONTATTO system is DUEMMEGI’s proprietary bus architecture for building automation. HSYCO fully integrates with this system through the MCP control and gateway module, and its FXP-XT serial communication protocol.

A serial connection between the MCPXT and the HSYCO SERVER is required for the integration, either directly through the server’s RS-232 port or via the RS-232 port of a supported serial to IP gateway, including the WEBS module.

The MCP4 can be connected via the integrated serial to IP gateway.

The Contatto I/O Server requires MCP-XT firmware version 3.0 or later. The MCPIDE configuration tools pass-through support for secure access to the MCP via HSYCO requires MCPIDE version 3.2.3 or later.

Communication

Use a DE-9 (often called DB-9) male-female RS-232 straight cable to connect the RS-232 MCPXT port to the serial port on HSYCO SERVER or serial gateway. You can also connect the MCPXT using the RS-485 port. The MCP4 can also be connected via the integrated serial to IP gateway.

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate 9600, 38400, 57600 or 115200 bps (according to the MCP serial port setting)
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity none
Flow control none

Note A speed of 115200 bps is recommended to achieve good performance, particularly when the number of devices connected to the bus is large.


High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to false.

HSYCO Configuration

You can define and connect to more than one CONTATTO bus using several MCP gateways.

The CONTATTO I/O Server also supports dual, redundant connections between HSYCO and MCP.

If the main connection fails, HSYCO automatically re-routes the communication with MCP through the fail-over connection.

Initialization and Connection Events

Event name Value Description
connection online connection established to the MCP module
offline HSYCO can’t connect to the MCP module
detected.input.<n>. model name an input device of the type passed as value has been detected at address <n>, using addresses
detected.output.<n>. model name an output device of the type passed as value has been detected at address <n>, using addresses

The Device Configuration Database

The systemtopo.txt file contains the list of all devices and their individual input, output and virtual data points that could be directly associated to graphic object in the Web-based user interface. This file can be filled manually or automatically by HSYCO at start-up.

To enable automatic discovery and automatic generation of devices’ information in the systemtopo file, use the inputdiscovery, outputdiscovery and virtualdiscovery options in Settings. The default behavior is to only discover devices with output data points.

This is an example of an automatically generated systemtopo.txt file:

(devices)
contatto.o10.1 : LIGHT ; LIGHT
contatto.o6.1 : LIGHT ; DIMMER
contatto.o7.2 : LIGHT ; LIGHT
contatto.o7.1 : LIGHT ; DIMMER
contatto.o9.2 : AUTOM ; VSHUT
contatto.o5.4 : LIGHT ; LIGHT
contatto.o9.1 : AUTOM ; VSHUT
contatto.o5.3 : LIGHT ; LIGHT
contatto.o5.2 : LIGHT ; LIGHT
contatto.o5.1 : LIGHT ; LIGHT

You should then manually add comments and other optional parameters:

(devices)
contatto.o10.1 : LIGHT ; LIGHT; main entrance light
contatto.o6.1 : LIGHT ; DIMMER; lobby dimmer
contatto.o7.2 : LIGHT ; LIGHT; kitchen workbench
contatto.o7.1 : LIGHT ; DIMMER; kitchen main dimmer

MCP Data Points

The MCP implements 2032 virtual points for binary (on/off) data and 1024 registers and counters for positive scalar values (0-65535). All virtual points, registers and counters can optionally generate I/O events. You can also write to the virtual data points, registers and counters using the IO action in EVENTS or ioSet() method in Java.

You cannot directly control the MCP virtual data points, registers or counters using GUI objects.

To enable polling of the current state of the MCP’s virtual data points, enable the virtualpoints options in hsyco.ini.

To enable polling of the current state of the MCP’s registers, enable the registers options in hsyco.ini.

To enable polling of the current state of the MCP’s counters, enable the counters options in hsyco.ini.

If you only have to write to virtual points, registers or counters, enabling polling is not strictly required.

ID Value R/W Description
busfault 0 R no bus fault detected
1 R bus fault detected
modulefault 0 R no modules fault detected
1 R modules fault detected
v0.<n> 0 RW virtual data point <n> off (<n>: 1-2032)

c0.<n> <x> RW counter <n> (<n>: 0-1023) set to value <x> (<x>: 0-65535)

MCP Internal Clock

The MCP module has an integrated real-time clock. You can use the clock datapoint to read the MCP date and time, and set the MCP clock to HSYCO’s current time.

ID Value R/W Description
clock yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss R the MCP clock current time
read W read the MCP clock, and the delta with HSYCO’s time
sync W set the MCP clock to HSYCO’s current time
clock.delta integer number R the delta time in seconds between the MCP and HSYCO clocks. A positive number means that the MCP clock is ahead of HSYCO

CONTATTO Modules Events and Control

Each CONTATTO module has its own set of read-only or read-write data points, mapping the specific set of features.

All modules also have a read-only "fault" data point, set to 1 if the MCP has detected a module fault condition, or 0 if the module is working normally.

ID Value R/W Description
i<address>.fault 0 R input module working normally
1 R input module fault detected
o<address>.fault 0 R output module working normally
1 R output module fault detected

MOD4-4S

4 digital input and 4 power relay output multifunction module.

HSYCO supports two configurations only: four independent outputs, or two shutters.

When set as four independent outputs, the module must be configured with the same base address for input and output.

For example:

User Interface

All CONTATTO devices data points that have been defined in the systemtopo.txt database are automatically listed in the Project Editor. Adding a button to control a device output point requires just a few clicks and no additional EVENTS logic.


IO Servers Contatto Project Editor.png


Besides the direct association of control buttons and data points, the CONTATTO driver also automatically updates graphical objects that represent values or states of complex devices, like the CLIMA2 temperature control unit. It will also automatically intercept buttons to manually set operation modes and temperature set-points.


CLIMA2

You can use the temp and tempmini objects to control CLIMA2 devices.


UI Object clima2.png


The fan button, in the bottom right-hand corner, is not enabled because the manual control of the fan speed is not available. The M button, in the top right-hand corner, allows to switch the module on or off.

You can also easily create customized controls for the CLIMA2, using standard graphic objects that are automatically set to show the device’s status and intercepted to send user commands.

MOD4TP/I

Using slider objects for MOD4TP/I shutter's position

You can use the slider objects, sliderv and sliderh, to display and control the position. Set both the slider's ID and address to <server_name>.<address>.<N>, with N from 1 to 4.

Note Note that you can set the inverse attribute of the sliderv object to true, in order to have the cursor at the top instead of bottom of the slider when the position is 0.
