TruVu™ MPC Processor
TV-MPCXP

The Carrier® TruVu™ MPC Processor provides multipurpose monitoring and control for a variety of HVAC system applications. Flexible and versatile, it supports multiple I/O configurations for accomplishing both common and custom HVAC control strategies.

The TruVu MPC Processor features built-in routing and integration capabilities, along with support for up to nine TruVu MPC I/O expansion modules and a total of 180 input/output points.

Application Features

  • Comprehensive library of factory-engineered control programs available for complete air-side and water-side system control
  • Graphically programmable using the Snap programming tool
  • Supports Carrier communicating room sensors, which allow for local setpoint adjustment and local overrides

Hardware Features

  • Gig-E 1000 Mbps Ethernet port supports BACnet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and DHCP addressing
  • Local access 10/100 Ethernet port for system startup and troubleshooting
  • Real-time clock keeps time in the event of power failure for up to 3 days without batteries
  • Capable of system or stand-alone operation
  • Supports native BACnet MS/TP and BACnet over ARC156 communications
  • Can be din-rail or screw mounted

BACnet Features

  • BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) certified
  • Conforms to the BACnet Building Controller (B-BC), BACnet Router (B-RTR), and BACnet BBMD (B-BBMD), standard device profiles
  • Supports BACnet interoperability and routing with and between BACnet/IP, BACnet MS/TP, and BACnet over ARC156
  • High-speed, BACnet over ARC156 communications delivers information at the speeds necessary for effective data transfer
