You can configure the FEC or CGM controller to identify itself to an N2 supervisor as a UNT device type. If you configure the FEC or CGM this way, you do not need to reconfigure the N2 supervisor in this regard.

Also, if you configure the MASD application to automatically generate the N2 mapping table, then you do not need to reconfigure the N2 supervisor in this regard. However, if the FEC or CGM N2 point mapping does not exactly match its N2 supervisor's point mapping, then you need to reconfigure the N2 supervisor so that it does match. The procedure to perform these changes depends on the type of N2 supervisor.

  • For an N30 type N2 supervisor, perform these changes offline using the Project Builder tool. Refer to the Project Builder User's Guide (LIT-693205).
  • For an NAE type N2 supervisor, perform these changes offline using the System Configuration Tool (SCT). Refer to N2 Integration with the NAE Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201683).
  • To change the NCM database on an NCM type N2 supervisor, you must delete the old hardware and define new hardware. If you use the DDL compile method (@NC+) with the DELETE keyword, this simplifies the NCM database change. You may not need to recompile the GPL and JC Basic process. Refer to the DDL Programmer's Manual (LIT-630010).
  • For an SNE or SNC type N2 supervisor, perform these changes offline using the SCT.

To make the FEC replacement operation as similar as possible to the old UNT device:

  • Select a Supervisor Object Type that matches the replaced controller point.
  • For multi-state objects, select an appropriate States Text table.
  • Use the Supervisor Object Definition to restrict commands.
