I need to simulate a simple box with a simple cooling and heating system. In this box, we have only one swamp cooler (Evaporative cooler) for cooling. I don't know how to pipe a system to work as a swamp cooler in Energyplus. How could it be set?

1ZoneEvapCooler.idf that comes with EnergyPlus installation models a direct evaporative cooler. Please refer to InputOut Reference and Engineering Reference for more information on this.

May I have a screenshot of this piping on OpenStudio?
