Comfort Controller 6400
CEPL130201-02

General Purpose Controller

General purpose HVAC control and monitoring device capable of stand-alone control or used in a Carrier Comfort Network® (CCN) communicating system.

Carrier Comfort Controllers are microprocessor-based controllers that provide all the features necessary for complete stand-alone or network control of non-Carrier products or existing Carrier equipment and HVAC Controls. Comfort Controllers make it possible to bring DDC technology to all of the facility's critical equipment and systems - chillers, rooftops, air handlers, cooling towers, unit heaters, circulating pumps, exhaust fans, interior and exterior lighting and more.

The Comfort Controller 6400 monitors and controls up to 16 universal "on board" points and can grow beyond these 16 points as your application grow. Through the use of 6400 Input/Output expansion modules, the 6400 provides the capability to control and monitor up to 64 hard-wired points. To add a point, a user simply needs to provide, mount and wire the necessary field sensor and configure the point into the system.

Pre-Engineered Control Routines

Comfort Controllers include a library of proven control routines with a "fill-in-the-blanks" format for easy programming. The built-in routines include but are not limited to:

  • Staged thermostat - four stages plus fan
  • Staged Control - six stages
  • Lead/lag pump control with automatic fault logic
  • Heating and Cooling coil control
  • Mixed air damper control
  • Indoor air quality control
  • Air and water reset
  • Humidification
  • Static pressure and fan tracking control

Built-In Timeclock

A 365-day timeclock simplifies time scheduling. It features eight different program periods per day and includes 18 holiday periods plus automatic daylight savings and leap year adjustment.

Energy Management

In combination with options network modules, the Comfort Controller can help reduce energy costs by intergrating loadshedding, facility time scheduling and system maintenance functions.

Data Trending

The Comfort Controller can collect and store temperature, energy consumption and other data series for future references. All data can be viewed and saved via ComfortWORKS® and ComfortVIEW™ software.

Operator Interfaces

Comfort Controllers may be configured and monitored with Carrier's ComfortWORKS, ComfortVIEW or Network Service Tool. A hand-held Local Interface Device (LID) provides for easy viewing, monitoring and configuration of the Comfort Controller without a PC.

Maintenance and Diagnostics

Diagnostics and output channel LEDs provide a quick and visible indication of the Comfort Controller's operating conditions. The alarm table stores the latest series of alarm occurences leading up to an abnormal condition. The Comfort Controller 6400 offers optionsl "H-O-A" switches which may be included to further facilitate troubleshooting efforts.

  • Stand-alone control and monitoring of up to 16 universal "on-board" points
  • Easily expandable with 6400 Input/Output module
  • Simplified field wiring using "plug type" terminals (two-pin connection)
  • Alarm processing, messages and annunciation
  • Demand limiting/load shedding
  • Library of algorithms for a variety of control operations
  • Inputs can be configured universally
  • Outputs can be configured universally
  • Total facilities management when linked to a CCN
