HyperSense is a trimmed version of HyperStat. It is used with a SmartNode. It is a HyperStat with just the sensing capabilities and without the control capabilities. The SmartNode, a room-level controller with little sensing capabilities, can accommodate only one sensor to sense temperature and humidity parameters.
The HyperSense comes with 8 onboard sensors from its predecessor HyperStat. It can be used with the SmartNode to provide excellent sensing capabilities, along with the control capabilities of the Smart Node. It can sense and deliver various parameter values in a room to the SmartNode, with which the SmartNode could vary the controls the algorithm can provide.
The SmartNodes are usually installed in the plenum in the room, making it difficult for the occupants to access the SmartNode screens for any information. With the introduction of HyperSense, this problem could also be solved.
HyperSense also provides a means for the user to change various parameters, which would help achieve user comfort.
| How it Works
The HyperSense senses various parameter values in the room and serves them to the SmartNode, which in turn not only uses them in the algorithm to provide various required conditioning but also serves it to the CCU, to be served to the cloud for visualizing in the applications.
This avoids the need to wire more than a few different sensors to the SmartNode to sense various parameters in the room. It also acts as a wired user interface to Smart Node running a DAB or Lighting Profiles.
- Inbuilt sensors to monitor temperature, relative humidity, Ambient light, Occupancy, CO2, VOC, and PM2.5(optional)
- Power from RS485 4-wire cable harness from Smart Node
- Consumes 1.2W of power.
- Both mechanical and touch buttons for user interaction
- Has a bigger 2.8" display for a better user experience
Both powering and communication are done through the 4-wire cable harnessed to the RS 485 port in the HyperSense, and hence wiring effort is minimized.

| Wiring Pin Details
The HyperSense is provided with several pins for wiring the HVAC inputs, below are the details of the same.
At Position 1:
|TH1||Hosts the power wire, for the resistance-based parameters sensing like the Airflow Temperature Sensor, where sensing of the parameter happens by a foreseeable and precise variation in resistance.|
|TH2||Hosts the power wire, for the resistance-based parameters sensing like the Door/Window Sensor, where sensing of the parameter happens by a foreseeable and precise variation in resistance.|
Airflow Temperature Sensing
The Airflow Temperature Sensor is inserted into the airflow duct, as shown above. It is wired to the thermistor pins of the HyperSense. Based on the Airflow resistance, the resistance generated is communicated to the HyperSense in Ohms. HyperSense looks up a preconfigured table for a corresponding temperature value and uses the same for altering the control sequences.
Door & Window Sensing
A Door/Window Sensor as shown in the above image is wired to the thermistor pins of the HyperSense Based on the opening of the door or the window a resistance is generated, and the resistance generated is communicated to the HyperSense in Ohms. The HyperSense looks up for a preconfigure action set up for a door opening shuts off the conditioning ordered to avoid losses, and once the door is closed again starts the conditioning.
|AI1||Hosts the power wire connection for analog-controlled input forKeycard Sensor/another Door/Window Sensor/ Currents TX (0-10Amps/0-20Amps/0-50 Amps)|
|AI2||Hosts the power wire connection for analog-controlled input forKeycard Sensor/another Door/Window Sensor/ Currents TX (0-10Amps/0-20Amps/0-50 Amps)|
The Analog input can be configured for various types of senses, of which the Key Card Sensing is one of the most attractive introductions.
A Keycard Sensor as shown in the above image is wired to the Analog In pin of the HyperSense. Based on the insertion of the keycard, a voltage value is generated and the same is displayed in the HyperSense. The HyperSense uses the generated voltage values to trigger the occupancy-based energy sequences via SmartNode.
The Analog Input in the HyperSense can also be configured for current sensing at times. A Current Transformer as shown above is wired to the Analog In pin of the HyperSense. It works on the principle of the faradays law (a current-carrying conductor induces a magnetic field around it). Based on the number of turns of the magnetic fields a voltage is generated and communicated to the Analog in of HyperSense. The HyperSense looks up in the predefined table for the actual Voltage that is generated based on the scaled voltage. This is used to calculate the current consumed for the circuit.
|Grounds||Hosts the ground wires for the Thermistors & Analog Ins|
At Position 2:
At this position, the HyperSense is provided with RS 485 socket which supports a 4-wire protocol connector. This hosts the wiring for powering the HyperSense from the SmartNode, which also aids communication
The 75F supports a wiring harness to meet this wiring connection between the SmartNode and the HyperSense
4 Pin to 4 Wire Screw Connector
This uses a 4-pin Molex connector at one end and a 4-wire, screw connector at the other end, and can be used with a length 4-wire protocol cable, based on the distance at which the SmartNode is from the HyperSense. You can simply twist the four wires and insert them into the screw slots provided for connection.
At Position 3:
At this position, the HyperSense is provided with a low-power sensor bus socket that supports 3-wire protocol sensor connections. This hosts the wiring for additional sensor requirements
The 75F supports a type of wiring harness to meet sensor connections.
3 Pin to 3 Pin Cable
This uses a 3-pin Molex connector at both ends and can be used with sensors that use a 3-wire protocol and accommodates a Molex connector at termination.
| Jumper Settings
Jumpers are electronic components that are used to short two points to achieve a certain operation.
Below is an illustration of what is a jumper and how it is used.
The HyperSense hardware of 75F uses Two types of jumpers at two places for two different operations.
