About this task

The lighting schedule that you export from the Molex BACnet Configuration Tool includes the following columns of information:

  • Device and Equipment Name
  • Device and Equipment FQR Reference
  • Instance # (BACoid)

Other column headings are included in the lighting schedule for reference, but are not populated with information. The column headings correspond to column headings in the Rapid Archive Schedule. After you add all of the required information to the Rapid Archive Schedule, you can import the file into the Rapid Archive Field Controller wizard in the SCT to quickly create virtual BACnet lighting devices and objects.

For best practice, copy the content from the lighting schedule to the Rapid Archive Schedule before you enter any additional information. For detailed information on use of the Rapid Archive Schedule, refer to the Rapid Archive Schedule Population in the Rapid Archive Wizard section in the Metasys SCT: System Configuration Tool Help (LIT-12011964).

To prepare the Rapid Archive Schedule for import into the SCT, complete the following steps:

Procedure

  1. Open the lighting schedule in Microsoft® Excel®.
  2. Open C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAC\RAC Schedule_Master.xls in a separate instance of Microsoft Excel.
  3. The RAC Schedule_Master.xls file is read only. Save a copy of the file.
  4. Copy the information from the lighting schedule to the RAC Schedule Master spreadsheet. Check the column headings to ensure that you copy the information to the correct columns.
