Enterprise Server and the B-OWS capability for viewing BACnet Operator Workstation

Resolution

The Enterprise Server is a native BACnet/IP protocol operator workstation and controller with a built-in web server. The Enterprise Server also serves as a BACnet/IP Broadcast Management Device (BBMD).

The Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) document details the BACnet Interoperability Building Blocks that are supported in StruxureWare Building Operation.

The PICS are available from the BACnet International labs for BACnet Operator Workstation (B-OWS)


Continuum 1.9x
The below screenshot is of a StruxureWare Building Operation 1.3 Release and the desired connection using B-OWS to a Continuum 1.94 Release.


Workaround is on the BACnet Interface of the ES, highlight the IP Network then Add New BACnet Device.
1. Suggested name would be the Cyberstation Name
2. Upload from BACnet device
3. Instance ID is the Device Node ID (Right-click/Edit on the Cyberstation)
4. Create

Then perform an Upload from the newly created Cyberstation.

Resulting View from the Enterprise Server: (Note that Cyberstation owned objects are not available in the Enterprise Server)
