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
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
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.
