RC-Archive™ 3 Unleashed


Reliable Controls® is pleased to announce the official release of version 3 of RC-Archive™ containing many new and exciting features to enable seamless data acquisition. The new version of RC-Archive™ adds archiving support for the following new objects: BACnet® Single-point and Multipoint Trend Logs, and BACnet® and Reliable Controls Protocol Runtime Logs. In fact, BACnet® is now a fully supported connection method, allowing discovery and data collection from any Reliable or third-party BACnet project using an IP network.  

For those who operate facilities that cannot accommodate the standard USB-Key (RC-Key) required to license RC-Archive™, a new soft license option may be purchased to authorize RC-Archive without a USB software key.

The new scheduled database update interval allows end-users to specify one of three new database synchronization scenarios for the entire system:

  • Once every 1, 2, 6 or 12 hours,
  • Once every 24 hours at a user-specified hour, or
  • At a user-specified day of the week, at a user-specified hour.
Separate from scheduled database updates, RC-Archive™ updates as often as is required to preserve data.  
BACnet® Trend Log archiving for both Multipoint and Single-point objects, and Runtime Log archiving, for both BACnet® and Reliable Controls® Protocol will allow archived data to be visually displayed in reports generated in the new RC-Reporter Energy Tracking and Analysis Software, the MACH-ProWeb™ user interface, and RC-Studio®.

Siemens BACnet Programmable Lab and Pressurized Room Controllers


The BACnet Programmable Laboratory Control Modules (LCMs) and Pressurization Room Controllers (PRCs) are now available.


The Siemens BACnet LCMs and PRCs enable precision control for pressurized room solutions. The new BACnet LCM's and PRC's include both Standard Speed and High Speed Applications for use with either Blade Dampers, Venturi Valves, or a combination of the two.


These controllers use Siemens Off-board Air Module (OAM) to measure airflow. Measuring airflow is critical for the accurate, repeatable, and long term operation of pressurized spaces.


Our new platform provides the following advantages

  • Pre-loaded and tested applications ready to use out of the box, including both Standard and High Speed applications for Blade Damper and Venturi Air Valves.
  • Programmable using familiar PPCL programming language.
  • CO2, Temperature and Humidity support.
  • BACnet MS/TP protocol and BTL Listed devices.
