Issue

On a old MNL project, a MNL-MI device was found. Is it required to integrate into SmartStruxure?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series, SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

SmartStruxure with MNL

Cause

Outdated LON product

Resolution

The MNL-MI provided network-level management functions for a network of MNL controllers.  An RS-232 port on the MNL-MI provided for a connection to a computer running the MicroNet Tech Tool or MicroNet View software (both obsolete).  It is not required for a SmartStruxure integration and can be removed from the LON trunk.
