Big issues in DCO?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Boris Majdandzic on 2018-08-13


Hello,

I have DCO Capacity 20 rack licence.

  1.  I don`t have sensor mapping options in DCO. My sensors are not shown in DCO, I have associated PDU with racks, but no option when I use right click.
  2. I have used several types of INROW genomes, but I always get recommendation to put in perforated floor tiles even though I am using HOT isle
  3. I have WIB as SNMP communication with Stulz C7000 AC units, so how can I associate this with 4 devices?

I need these answers ASAP.

Thanks in advance

Hi Boris,

1- In Planning Device Association mode, after you have associated a device to your PDU, right-click on the device/PDU and select the "Sensor Mapping" from the menu.

For more details, please see the following page: Configuring branch circuit monitoring

2- Apparently you might have some down-flow CRAC(s) in your setup. Down-flow CRACs in general would require modeling/adding some perforated tiles and configured Raised floor ( right-click on the floor > Properties > Floor).

3- If I understand correctly you want to associate one DCE device to 4 models in DCO, right? if yes, then that is not supported, in DCO we can/may associate one DCE device to one model in DCO.

Kind regards

Dear Boris Majdandzic,

3- If I understand correctly you want to associate one DCE device to 4 models in DCO, right? if yes, then that is not supported, in DCO we can/may associate one DCE device to one model in DCO.

Unfortunately my doubts, which I described to you in response to the topic of , were confirmed:

If you decide to use the DCO & DCE system for the project, you should first consult the Schneider Electric staff.

Since you decided to use one WIB8000 device (SNMP) for four cooling units, you should be aware that in DCE software all four cooling units will be represented as single common SNMP device. In the future, this can cause some difficulties of a human nature when handling emergency alerts from cooling units. In addition, for the correct mapping of the temperature/humidity sensors of this single common SNMP device, some skills and knowledge will be required to be divided into four separate cooling units in the DCO software. This is also an important point, which is often ignored.

With respect.

Hello,

  1.  Problem with option"sensor" mapping was resolved with reinstalling the system. The similar issue happend on training when the 2 of us in the class didn`t have all the options in DCO.

  2. I don`t have downflow CRAC, but problem could be with the design that I have attached. I can`t find roof mounted AC units for the electrical room, or should I remove the electrical rooms for them selves? (Customer want`s to have visible all rooms in same view)

  1. Since the separation wasn`t shown in tutorial or training I will need some help with this. Can you send me any papers for this?

Hi Boris,

Most likely related to the modeled cooling units. Which cooling units (from Genome Library) have you used?

Kind regards

I have used Generic InRow, Tried With Stulz Inrow & APC INrow genoms, always recommends perforated tiles.

I have already posted this in another question, but there was no answer

Hi Boris,

Apparently Stulz units seem to be downflow/upflow A/C units. However issue appears to be reproducible by using the Generic InRow items (from Genome Library) - I will register a bug report for this.

Workaround:

Please try the following workaround to replace your modeled cooling units:

In Genomes right-click on your Generic InRow item > Properties > General, and then change the Manufacturer to APC:

Now add/drag this device to your floor, and then right-click > Properties > General, enter your Manufacture name (such as Stulz):

Kind regards

Hi,

Is there example how to associate sensor to different equipment than it is associated device?

... should I remove the electrical rooms for them selves? (Customer want`s to have visible all rooms in same view)

The recommended approach to achieve this is to use the Floor Plan. On a Floor Plan you can arrange multiple rooms relatively to each other.

Move (or create) your rooms under the Floor Plan:

When the room editor is unlocked, you can move the rooms on the floor plan:

If you double-click the rooms they will open up in the room editor.

You can also add a background image to a Floor Plan.
