Table 1. Upgrade ZFR Coordinators



Connection Screen

Connection Type

Use to specify the connection type to use:

  • NxE Passthru

    Note: We strongly advise against using an NxE Passthru connection to transfer to multiple controllers due to potential communication loss during the process.
  • Bluetooth

  • MAP 4.2+/BACnet Router/WNC1800

  • ZFR/ZFR Pro

Connection Parameters

NxE Passthru: Allows you to specify the following:

  • Host name/IP Address: Indicates the device host name or IP Address.
  • Port: Indicates the port number (1–65,535).
  • Username and Password: Indicates the username and password to log in to the site.
Note: The NxE Passthru fields allows you to connect directly to a site by entering in the site's username and password.
  • Supervisor Device: Displays a list of discovered supervisory devices.
  • Trunk: Displays a list of trunks for the selected supervisory device.
Bluetooth: Use to specify the COM port and baud rate to use.

MAP 4.2+ / BACnet Router: Use to specify the following:

  • IP address and UDP port of the router.
  • Network number of the MS/TP trunk (1-65,534).
    Note: Do not use 1001 for the MS/TP Network Number. The MS/TP Network Number 1001 is reserved for Johnson Controls IP network connections.
  • An available Ethernet network interface adapter to use.
    Note: If you select an available Ethernet network interface, all IP traffic intended for the MAP 4.2+/ BACnet Router travels through this interface.
When you first open the wizard, the default connection parameters for connecting to a MAP Gateway at version 4.2 are automatically displayed. If the connection parameters are modified, the values are stored in the wizard for future use. To restore the connection parameters to the default values, click the MAP 4.2 Default button.
Note: For further information about the MAP and common troubleshooting issues, refer to the Mobile Access Portal Gateway User's Guide (LIT-12011999).
ZigBee: Use to specify the Personal Area Network (PAN) Offset.
