Using Cube I/O With Honeywell Spyders

Thanks to our friends at Contemporary Controls for this great way to make the Honeywell Spyder even more powerful.

Honeywell Spyder VAV and unitary controllers are available with either a LON or BACnet interface. These controllers typically have 21 physical points but this point count can be expanded on the BACnet versions by adding BACnet Cube I/O modules instead of adding another Spyder. Cube I/O modules are low-cost, low-density DIN-rail modules with a variety of I/O point configurations. Installation can be accomplished using a Honeywell WEBstation-AX (Niagara workstation) with an installed Honeywell Spyder Tool for configuration and commissioning. Connecting the WEBstation to the Spyder is facilitated with a Contemporary Controls’ BACnet MS/TP to BACnet/IP router.

The Cube I/O series is available as either BACnet MS/TP or Modbus RTU devices. They all are DIN-rail mountable and can be powered from 24 VAC/VDC power source. They can share power with the Spyder controllers. They are available in several I/O configurations including a model that supports four binary inputs and two binary outputs. The BMT-DIO4/2 is the module used in the application note that we authored giving step-by-step instructions on how to install a typical Cube I/O device to expand point count in a Honeywell Spyder.
