About this task

Assumption: You want to enable BACnet/SC on Johnson Controls ® IP equipment controllers or supervisory devices that support it. The IP equipment controllers communicate through BACnet/IP as their factory default and the supervisory devices are configured to communicate through BACnet/IP. The site meets the requirements described in Minimum site requirements to use BACnet/SC.

Prerequisites: You completed the steps listed in Manual certificate distribution. The IP equipment controllers are already mapped to a supervisory device. The devices are upgraded to Metasys Release 12.0, but BACnet/SC communication is not enabled yet.

  1. Click the Devices tab, if it is not already open.
  2. Select your engines.
  3. Click ACTIONS > Set BACnet IP Communication Mode.
  4. Set your engines to Dual SC and IP Mode, so that they can communicate in both modes, and click APPLY.
  5. Repeat step 1 and then select your IP equipment controllers.
  6. Click ACTIONS > Set BACnet IP Communication Mode.
  7. Set your equipment controllers to Secure Connect Only Mode and click APPLY.
  8. Repeat step 1 and select the engines that you want to set to BACnet/SC.
  9. Click ACTIONS > Set BACnet IP Communication Mode.
  10. Set the engines to Secure Connect Only Mode and click APPLY.
    Important: To turn on Secure Connect Only Mode on an engine, you must ensure that all equipment controllers that are mapped to that engine are communicating in Secure Connect Only Mode and that any other engines communicating with the engine that you want to change are in Secure Connect Only Mode or Dual SC and IP Mode.
