QCA-11146 / QCA11146E Application Controller

COSYS Building Controls


Our COSYS Application and System Controls work along with our enterprise software platform OspreyFMS to provide a meaningful context.

The QCA-11146 Application Controller is a fully programmable, Native BACnet® Advanced Application Controller that either communicates on Twisted-Pair Ethernet 10-BaseT using BACnet IP and BACnet over Ethernet (QCA-6411E) or an RS-485 LAN using the BACnet MS/TP protocol (QCA-11146). It is designed for a wide-range of applications that have medium local I/O requirements.


  • Super Capacitor for real-time clock and SRAM backup which requires no maintenance (QCA-11146E)
  • Supports 10 BACstat network sensors room sensing and control, or 2 Field Modules for I/O expansion
  • Actuator power terminal (24 VAC) for each analog output (can be powered internally or from an auxiliary transformer)
  • Firmware upgrade and database load/save over the network
  • Optional field upgrade to Modbus® RTU with hardware key
  • Service port
  • Screw or DIN rail mountable
  • LED indicator for each output, power, CPU and SCAN status
  • Fully programmable in GCL+


The QCA-11146 is suitable for controlling various packaged units and equipment with medium I/O requirements such as small air handling units, boilers, and chillers.

The fully programmable QCA-11146 can be tailored to specific applications by creating and modifying BACnet objects and GCL+ programs.
