In most instances, the supervisory controller has a BACnet integration. Use the BACnet Integration to configure the parameters for BACnet integration in the supervisory controller that is monitoring BACnet/IP devices. For more information about the BACnet Integration object, including attributes and commands, refer to the Object Help in the Metasys SMP Help (LIT-1201793).

Note: NxE/SNx's can only have one BACnet/IP Integration.
Use the Field Bus MSTP Integration to connect BACnet MS/TP devices to a supervisory controller. The specific model of supervisory controller must either have an available RS-485 communication connection or use the remote field bus integration if the MS/TP devices are accessible through a BACnet/IP to MS/TP router. In this case, the router provides the RS-485 communication instead of the supervisory controller.
Note: Make sure you map field devices under a remote field bus to only one supervisory controller. If you map the same remote controllers to multiple supervisors, these devices may cycle online and offline and you may experience slow startup performance. For more background on the remote field bus, refer to the MS/TP Communications Bus Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011034).

The BACnet Integration object offers four views, while the Field Bus Integration object adds a fifth view:

Note: Only the focus view is available during offline configuration with the SCT.
