Connection Screen

Connection Type

Select the type of connection to use:
  • Supervisor Passthru
  • Bluetooth
  • MAP 4.2+ / BACnet Router
  • ZigBee
  • Direct Ethernet

Connection Parameters

  • Supervisor Passthru:Specify the following:
    • Host Name/IP Address: The device host name or IP Address.
    • User Name: Credentials to log into the site.
    • Password: Credentials to log into the site.
    • Supervisory Device: The supervisory device to use for the Supervisor Passthru connection.
    • Trunk: The trunk to use for the Supervisor Passthru connection.

    To use the Supervisor Passthru connection, you do not need to launch the tool through the supervisory device configuration tool or user interface, or have the supervisory device configuration tool installed. When you launch the tool from the supervisory device configuration tool, the supervisory device connection information is not automatically populated in the tool.

    Bluetooth: 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: Specify the PAN Offset.
  • Direct Ethernet: Specify the UDP port of the device and an available network interface. Select a network interface that is connected to the same subnet as the IP controllers to which you want to connect.


Indicates the type of discovery process to use:
  • Auto
  • MAC Address
  • Instance Number
  • IP Device (when Bluetooth is selected)

Device Selection Screen


Use this feature to perform a device Discovery over the network to find a device. The Discovery option only returns field devices and I/O Modules that are on the Field Bus.
Note: After a Discovery, when you click Discover again, the list clears from the Device Selection table.


Stops the Discovery process.

Devices Table

Displays available devices, including:
  • Device Name: Name of the device.
  • System Name: Name of the system.
  • Address: Address of the device. You can sort on this column.
  • Type: Type of device.
  • Status: Status of the device.
  • Instance Number: TheBACnet ID number. This value is the same value used in the Peer Reference attribute in the Details View.
  • Controller Number 1: Combined value of the rotary switches or DIP switches on the device.
  • Computer Name 2: Network hostname of the device.
  • IP Address2: IP Address of the device.
Note: The first column (no header name) indicates the number of devices discovered.
