New Profiles to replace the profile submitted by the Working Group. The original profile is incomplete, and does not account for all possible interactions with a thermostat.

Datum: AIR_CONDITIONING_STATUS
Test: AIR_CONDITIONING_COMMAND is broadcast with correct instance and any data values.
Required Response:
1. The unit responds per Level Two requirements for response time with correct values for Operating Status, Fan Speed, Max Fan Speed, Output Level, and Max Output Level.
2. The unit sends the message repeatedly on a 5 second schedule.

ID: 103A-C-01

Datum: AIR_CONDITIONER_COMMAND/STATUS, Fan Speed
Test:
1. While in Manual Mode, and with Max Fan Speed at 200 (100%), AIR_CONDITIONER_COMMAND is broadcast with an arbitrary value (0-200) in Fan Speed. The test is repeated with a variety of values.
1. While in Auto Mode, AIR_CONDITIONER_COMMAND is broadcast with an arbitrary value (0-200, 0-100%) in Fan Speed.
Required Response:

Change to AIR_CONDITIONING_STATUS – Normal Broadcast Gap

Currently reads : on Change and every 2000ms.

Proposed: On Change. If the A/C is operating as a “slave” to an external thermostat (i.e. Operating Mode = 1 (Manual), 5000ms. Otherwise, 2000ms.

Justification: In “slave” mode, this status only changes in response to commands. The only reason to broadcast it at all (other than On Change) is to allow a device booting up to get an initial “fix” on the status.

----

Change to description of AIR_CONDITIONING_STATUS – Max A/C Output Level

Currently Reads: see Table 5.3. Used to control the compressor output for power-sharing purposes. See A/C Output Level below.

Proposed: see Table 5.3. Used to control the compressor output for power-sharing and to maintain intervals between when loads are added to the AC line. This value can typically be set by a thermostat using the corresponding value in AC_CONDITIONING_COMMAND, by an AC load manager using the AC_LOAD_COMMAND, or it may be generated internally due to a built-in delay. All of these mechanisms may be implemented at one time, with the greatest constraint being reported.

Justification: For clarity.

----

Change to description of AIR_CONDITIONING_STATUS/COMMAND – Fan Speed

Currently Reads: see Table 5.3. One-speed fans should use 0% and 100%. Two-speed fans should use 0%, 50%, and 100%.

Proposed: see Table 5.3. If Operating Mode is 1 (Manual), indicates the current fan speed, with 0 indicating the fan is off. If Operating Mode is 0 (Automatic), a value of 0 indicates that the fan speed is being set automatically by the air conditioner, and a non-zero value indicates that the speed is being manually overridden. If the air conditioner has an integrated thermostat, this value shall indicate the actual fan speed, with 0 indicating the fan is off, and the value in THERMOSTAT_STATUS_1 shall indicated whether the speed is being manually overridden, with a 0 indicating automatic behavior.

Justification: As written, no distinction is made between the manual and automatic fan speed. A similar distinction is to be added to THERMOSTAT_STATUS/COMMAND_1.

-----

Addition to description of AIR_CONDITIONING_COMMAND

Proposed: To the current description in 6.17.3, add “Note that setting Max Air Conditioner Output Level may be determined by more than one factor, and thus setting it to 100% may not cause the status to change accordingly. Even if the output level is constrained for other reasons, the Air Conditioner shall still accept such a command and shall not respond with a NAK. The status shall continue to report the lowest limitation.

Justification: For clarity.
