Commissioning i.LON 600 Routers

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • i.LON 600
  • LonMaker 3

Cause

i.LON 600 routers require backwards compatibility and a configured IP port.

Resolution

To commission an i.LON 600 in LonMaker 3 the user needs to make sure that the following are done.

  1. When creating the channel in the Echelon LONWORKS/IP Configuration server the channel mode selected should be "Backward Compatible" so that it can communicate with computer hosting the LNS Server.
  2. A device needs to be added to the channel that represents the computer hosting the LNS Server. It will share the same IP address as the channel, but utilize port 1628 rather then 1629.
