How to broadcast a value from one MicroSmart controller to other MicroSmart controllers under the same DMS.

Issue

The sending MicroSmart controller has revision 9 firmware.  The receiving MicroSmart controllers have revision 10 and revision 11 firmware.  How can a point value be broadcast?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

MicroSmart controllers

Cause

Peer-to-peer sharing of data was introduced to the MicroSmart controllers with revision 10 firmware. In this scenario, the revision 9 controller cannot broadcast (or receive) peer-to-peer.

Resolution

Link the sending point and the receiving points to the DMS.

Depending on the programming, use the sending DMS point with the receiving DMS point and the value will be available down in the MicroSmart controller.
