Viconics room stats with BACnet communications.

Cause

Units are shipped from the factory with the BACnet network disabled.

Resolution

Power up the unit.

Press the middle button down for 8 Seconds (It is either the Override or °C/°F Button depending on model).

Enter the password if it has been set, or leave as the default 0 for no password (as shipped from the factory).

Use the down key to find the "Comm Addr" value.

By default this is set to 254 BACnet communications disabled.

Adjust this to the desired value within the valid range of 1 to 127, but also ensure it is in the range of your BACnet Max Master setting on the connected system.

Once set, power off/ on the unit to change the address to the new value.

The unit should now be visible on the BACnet MS/TP network. 

 

Note: The SE7xxx Room controllers will auto baud to match your MS/TP network, there is no baud rate setting to adjust.

Also any password set on the SE7xxx controller must be temporarily disabled to allow the middle button to operate correctly.
