Excel Building Supervisor (Excel 5000 controllers)
The Excel Building Supervisor is a PC-based user interface and an integral part of the worldwide Excel 5000 system architecture. It can communicate on the Communication Bus (C-Bus) network to the Excel 50, 100, 500, and 600 Direct Digital Controllers (DDC) and to Excel 10 Constant Volume AHU, VAVII, Unit Ventilator, Hydronic and Remote I/O Controllers via the Excel 10 Zone Manager using the LonWorks Bus Network. The Excel Building Supervisor can be configured to meet the baseline requirements for a small building but also provides options for more sophisticated requirements, including full graphics operation and advanced trend plotting. The Excel Building Supervisor requires no engineering or preliminary design work on the PC when using the text display mode. The Excel Building Supervisor consists of a PC and may optionally have up to two parallel printers. Alarms, print screens, and reports can be directed to the printers. The PC may also include up to three XPC500 Interface Boards for direct C-Bus connections. In addition, the Excel Building Supervisor supports two modems for use in communicating to remote buildings. Outgoing communications use only one modem. A second modem assures that a communications path is available for incoming alarms. The Excel Building Supervisor PC workstation provides a user-friendly, pull-down, menu driven operator interface for monitoring and controlling building HVAC operations. Using conversational dialog boxes, the operators can display data using point-by-point names or attributes or by the use of wildcard searches. The Excel Building Supervisor runs under Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows NT and takes advantage of the wide acceptance of those products and the easy-to-learn user interface. Before software delivery, the end user must execute a software license agreement.

CITS Advisory 2
It may appear to that the cost of some tof these items is pretty expensive in some absolute sense but CITS advises that even at the curent prices the items are well worth it since otherwise you will be looking at repalcing the system or upgrading it or you will end up using a lot of time searching for the items. CITS recommends immediate attenstion to your system and offers repair/replacement for everry item in this system in short order. This way you can save tens of thousands of dollars. Please, remember that even migrating just one air handler can cost over 20 thousand dollars if not more. This is because all programs will have to rewritten and new hardwar/wiring installed and new front end used. Please call a CITS engineer to get more information and a recommended path for your migration. Pleae use a safe and economical approach for your site.
In the fianl analysis, use the cuurent system, reapair/service it as long as necessary and produce the money for the replacement for the long run.
Always use a safe and economical approach and not just what is technically available. Because the latter may be exciting but may not be justifiable for your business.
