How can a fan coil be modeled as zone equipment powered by an air loop ?

Hi, I am modeling a building that has an air loop that precools and feeds the fan coils. The system is set up to work in summer, so there is no heating and therefore no boiler. The fan coils are 2-pipe and are powered by the chiller. Is there any way to make this schematic in Open Studio? I have been looking that there is an object called: AirTerminal:SingleDuct:ConstantVolume:CooledBeam that could resemble the real behavior of the system, do you think it is a possible option? Thanks!

Já fiz projetos que nós incluímos resistências de aquecimento de ar nos dutos do fancoil, controlados por CLP - Controlador Logico Programável, com sensores de temperatura ambiente.

I have already done projects where we included air heating resistances in the fan coil ducts, controlled by a PLC - Programmable Logic Controller, with ambient temperature sensors.

I have managed to connect the air loop to the Fan coil zone system via the AirTerminal:SingleDuct:Mixer object.

This object takes air from the air loop, mixes it with the zone exhaust air and feeds it into the zone equipment.

An example of this type of scheme is available in the library: DOAToFanCoilInlet.
