Metasys system devices that connect to Ethernet networks use various field buses to interface with the building control system. Field buses provide direct connections between field devices and the supervisory device that controls them. Field devices/buses do not interact directly with the Ethernet network, but the supervisory devices do interact with the Ethernet network. Possible field buses include the LonWorks network, MS/TP bus, and N2 Bus. For information on the buses supported by specific Metasys system devices, refer to the product literature for each device.
