  G. Variable frequency drive, ABB Model ACH 550 listed to UL508 and listed and
     programmed as part of the mechanical draft system. The VFD shall not be part of
     the PID-loop.
        1. All features shall be included within the VFD enclosure. VFD shall be housed
           in a NEMA 1 enclosure.
        2. The VFD shall convert incoming fixed frequency three-phase AC power into a
           variable frequency and voltage for controlling the speed of three-phase AC
           motors. Motor voltage shall be varied with frequency to maintain desired
           motor magnetization current suitable for fan control and to eliminate the need
           for motor de-rating.
        3. With the motor’s rated voltage applied to the VFD input, the VFD shall allow
           the motor to produce full rated power at rated amps, RMS fundamental volts,
           and speed without using the motor's service factor.
        4. VFD shall include a “signal loss detection” circuit to sense the loss of an
           analog input signal such as 4 to 20 mA or 2 to 10 V DC, and shall be

  A. The Modulating Combustion Air System will ensure that the pressure set-point (in.
     W.C.) is reached and maintained within 30 seconds of burner light-off.
  B. Ramp-up and ramp-down time of the fan will be no more than 20 seconds.
  C. The Modulating Combustion Air System will maintain the pressure to within +/-
     0.01” W.C. of the pressure set-point (in. W.C.) in the supply air system.
  D. The control will shut down the appliance(s) within 120 seconds or less if pressure
     is not maintained as stated above.

3917022 MCAS, SFTA, VFD, EBC35
  A. The appliance(s) must be interlocked with the control. Upon a call for heat, the
     control will activate the ventilator to establish the required pressure in the
     combustion air system. Once the pressure is established at the set-point, the
     control will enable the appliance(s) calling for heat to fire. This sequence is
     repeated every time an appliance calls for heat without the control interrupting the
     sequencing of the heating appliances.

  B. When an appliance shuts down, the ventilator will adjust its speed to maintain the
     pressure at the set-point. Once the last appliance has shut down, the ventilator will
     continue to run in post-purge mode for the set amount of time.

  C. If proper pressure cannot be maintained because of a mechanical or electrical
     failure, the control will go into alarm mode and the integrated proven draft function
     will shut down all appliances within 120 seconds or less. While in alarm mode, the
     control constantly monitors the pressure. If the failure corrects itself or is corrected
     via intervention, the system will restart automatically.

       If the failure is not corrected, the control will utilize the integrated Operating Priority
       function. During a following call for heat, the control determines if one or more
       appliances can be operated safely at the present pressure conditions. If so, the
       heating appliance(s) will be able to operate without ventilator operation. After two
       (2) hours, the control verifies ventilator operation and, if present, the control will go
       back to normal operation. Otherwise, the control will continue to operate in
       Operating Priority mode. The self-check is repeated every two (2) hours infinitely.
       During a period without ventilator operation, the control is in alarm mode to notify
       the Building Management System.

  D. If unsafe CO levels are present, the control will go into alarm mode and shut down
     all appliances within 15 seconds. While in alarm mode, the control constantly
     monitors the CO levels. If the failure corrects itself or is corrected via intervention,
     the system will restart automatically.

  E. If the ventilator is out of commission for seven (7) days, the Bearing Cycle
     Activation function will allow the ventilator to operate at a low speed for a short
     time. This is automatically repeated every seven (7) days the ventilator does not

  A. Furnish slip connection type as required.
2.06     RELAY BOARD FOR EBC35 CONTROL (For 7 boilers or more only)

             2. To the variable frequency drive: As shown on schedule.
   B. All wiring shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
        All product substitution proposals on the basis of alternative mechanical draft
        system manufacturers must include detailed information regarding product
        performance and include a listing report by a nationally recognized testing
        laboratory that verifies that the entire system is in compliance with UL 1995 and
        meets all the specifications listed. It is the Contractor’s responsibility to assure that
        a substituted system meets the complete detailed functions specified herein. If a
        substituted system does not provide all these functions, the Contractor will be fully
        liable for bringing the installed system into compliance or replacing it with the
        originally specified manufacturer’s system.
