About this task

To modify the integration parameters, complete the following steps:


  1. Log on to the network engine.
  2. Drag the KNX integration object from the navigation panel to the display panel.
  3. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Edit.
  4. Click the browse button next to Vendor Configuration Data to open the Modify List dialog box. Figure 1 shows the default parameter values for the KNX integration.
    Figure 1. Default parameters in an integration

  5. In the Modify List dialog box, modify the default parameters as necessary for your integration. The system automatically saves any changes. See Table 1 for a list of parameter values.
    Table 1. VND integration parameters




    Represents whether to capture the KNX driver operations to display the traffic on a serial communication port (Y = enable log; N = disable log).

    If the parameter is set to Y:
    • For the NCE25, NAE35, NAE45, NAE55, NIE59, diagnostic messages are received and can be captured by the use of a serial terminal program.
    • For the SNE and SNC, diagnostic messages are received and can be captured by the use of a serial terminal program.
    • For the NAE85, log files are captured at the USB port.
      Note: For NAE85 and OAS, if you use a USB drive, insert the drive before you enable log capture and remove the USB drive after you disable the log.


    Represents the Diagnostic destination where diagnostic details are sent when parameter 1 is set to Y.

    When set to 0, no destination is defined.

    For Ethernet destination, the format of this parameter is <IPv4 address>:<UDP port number>.

    For serial port identifiers see Table 1.


    Only the NAE85 and OAS support a USB destination.

    For an NAE85, you must enter the letter of the USB drive.


    Not used in this integration.


    Represents the timeout, in milliseconds, used to check for offline devices. If a device does not communicate within the timeout period, the integration driver attempts to reconnect with the device.


    Represents whether to activate an additional internal log file for use in debugging. Set this parameter to N. If you need to enable additional logging, contact technical support.

  6. Click OK to close the Modify List dialog box.
