2 Agenda New BACnet Licensing BACnet OWS Features BACnet AWS Features New SBS Parts for Linux and 64 bit Supervisors New Modbus TCP Slave Driver for Supervisors

3 New Supervisor BACnet Licensing AX Supervisor BACnet Driver will now be offered in the following forms: –BACnet IP Client Driver –BACnet Server Driver –BACnet Client/Server Bundle Continue to add capacity by 500 Point Blocks

4 DR-S-BAC-AX Now Obsolete The current BACnet Supervisor Driver will no longer be offered which uses the bacnetWS module. The part number DR-S-BACNET is the net client and server bundle for the supervisor The bacnetws module will be included in the 3.7 build, but Tridium will discontinue further development on this module –All future enhancements will be provided for in the bacnetOws and bacnetAws modules

5 OWS BACnet Listing What is OWS? The Operator Work Station (OWS) provides additional functionality to the Supervisor to be beyond the standard features of the BACnet IP Client Driver and is listed by BTL. Value of OWS –Meet BTL listing requirements for an OWS –Qualify for specifications calling out OWS Listed products –Additional Supervisor Features

6 OWS Features In addition to features included with the standard BACnet Client driver, the OWS option offers: Event Information –For BACnet devices that support GetEventInformation service, outstanding device events that were not logged in Niagara may be requested. The event is then propagated to the Niagara alarm service. For devices that support GetAlarmSummary, the driver will display unacknowledged alarms, but not import alarms into the Niagara alarm service. Enrollment Summary –Retrieves a summary of BACnet objects within a device that match a set of user definable criteria. Configurable Threads for Polling –Device polling threads may be increased to more than 2 threads if increased performance is needed. Configurable Threads for Proxy Point Writes –Multiple threads may now be configured for proxy points. Useful for networks that have a large number of proxy points configured to write on start.

7 Target Customers for OWS The daily operator who needs the ability to monitor basic system status and to perform simple modification to the operation of the system Projects that specify BACnet OWS

8 OWS Device Manager View Additional Features compared to BACnet IP Client

9 AWS BTL Listing What is AWS? The Advanced Work Station (AWS) provides the highest level of functionality to the Supervisor to Monitor and Control a BACnet System Value of AWS –Meet BTL listing requirements for an AWS –Qualify for specifications calling out AWS Listed products –Additional Supervisory Functions for BACnet Systems

10 AWS Features In addition to the OWS option features, the AWS option provides: Communication Control –Control a devices ability to generate traffic on a network. Useful for diagnostics or if a device is faulty. Reinitialize Device –Ability to restart a device from the AWS Backup Device (for devices that support DM-BR-B BIBB) –Backup a devices configuration to a file Restore Device (for devices that support DM-BR-B BIBB) –Restore a previous backup to a device History Import Manager –Import BACnet Event Log objects to a Niagara history. Configuration Manager (for devices that support this functionality) –Create additional BACnet objects in a BACnet device –Delete BACnet objects in a BACnet device

11 Target Customer for AWS Building operator or technician with an advanced level of technical ability –Provides support for limited configuration actions and ongoing commissioning activities Projects that specify BACnet AWS

12 AWS Device Manager View Additional Features compared to BACnet OWS

13 AWS Config Manager – New Features Create new BACnet objects in the remote BACnet device Delete selected BACnet objects in the remote BACnet device

14 BACnet Server and AWS/OWS OWS and AWS were not tested by BTL with the export function enabled –Server functionality is not required by BTL for the OWS/AWS Device Profiles The OWS and AWS Parts can only be added to the BACnet IP Client Driver on the AX Supervisor to keep the BTL listing valid If the OWS or AWS parts are added to a station with the BACnet Export enabled, the BTL listing will become invalid

15 BACnet B-BC Listing for JACEs The JACE BACnet Driver received the B-BC Listing in 2008. The BACnet Driver is B-BC listed for Niagara AX version 3.2.20 and higher –Includes the Server Features –If a customer needs BTL Listed OWS/AWS and BTL Listed Server features, use a JACE and Supervisor combination

16 Upgrading a BACnet Supervisor An existing BACnet Supervisor station is not directly upgradable to run as a BACnet AWS or BACnet OWS Supervisor An offline conversion utility is provided in the bacnetAws and bacnetOws modules –This tool is documented in the Appendix of the BACnet Guide (available on Niagara Central) –Converts the config.bog database file

17 Upgrading an OWS to an AWS Station If a customer purchases OWS and needs/desires to upgrade to AWS, there is an additional charge and part number to order the AWS module An offline converter tool is used to upgrade the config.bog database file to be compatible as a BACnet AWS Supervisor –Documented in the Appendix of the BACnet Guide (available on Niagara Central)

18 OWS/AWS Licensing Requirements BACnet OWS –Requires purchasing the BACnet IP Client Driver for the AX Supervisor –The supervisor PC must be running AX 3.6 or later with the bacnet and bacnetOws modules in the modules folder –The Supervisor PC must have both the bacnet feature and the bacnetOws feature in its license BACnet AWS –Requires purchasing the BACnet IP Client Driver for the AX Supervisor –Must be running AX-3.6 or later with the bacnet, bacnetOws, and bacnetAws modules in the module folder –The Supervisor PC must have the bacnet feature, bacnetOws feature, and bacnetAws feature in its license

19 New SBS Supervisor Options 64-bit Windows Small Building Supervisor 32-bit Linux Small Building Supervisor Both the 64-bit Windows Small Building Supervisor and the 32-bit Linux Small Building Supervisor will have identical features to the current 32-bit Windows Small Building Supervisor –Limit of any 3 JACE controllers –Only database drivers can be added to the Small Building Supervisor Install a high-performance system in a small building with the option to expand later
