6.2.2 Starting Procedure
184.108.40.206 All AHUs, Global Exhaust, Global Supply and all ventilation Unit shall start through BMS which is Programmed for as per following sequence:-
220.127.116.11 Core Corridor’s AHUs and Exhaust Unit shall start before 10 minutes of other AHUs as scheduled.
18.104.22.168 After 10 minutes all other AHUs, Supply and Ventilation Units shall start as scheduled.
22.214.171.124 All AHUs are programmed for Design Temperature and RH settings. If there is any change in room condition requirement then Engineering-Executive/ Officer can only change the setting.
126.96.36.199 There are three level securities Password in BMS login.
188.8.131.52 One is primary level for operator. Operator shall be authorized for data checking only he can also take printout of data like RA Temperature, RH.
184.108.40.206 Second level is for Engineering persons who can change the:
Room condition settings.
Change in Alarm setting.
To make new login for Operators
220.127.116.11 Third level is for Administrator. In this level only ABB Engineer is authorized to change all setting, Change password of Second Level and reprogram the system.
