b3 to b3 Binding Operation

Issue

What binding methods can be used and how is the data transferred when binding objects between b3 controllers?

Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

Automation Server

BACnet

Continuum b3

Cause

When binding objects between b3 devices/controllers, the type of b3 Objects being bound will effect the properties of the binding

Resolution

When binding between two b3 devices, several methods can be used:

b3 Value/Point    to     b3 Value/Point   -   The data goes via the Automation Server and speed/rate is set in the Transfer Window, thus more bandwidth used and communication is lost if the Automation Server fails

b3 Script            to     b3 Value/Point   -   The data goes direct using BACnet COV subscriptions, thus less bandwidth is used
