Vista to I/NET Integration Tips

Product Line

TAC I/NET, TAC Vista

Environment

  • I2V Integration
  • I/NET
  • XBuilder
  • Xenta 913
  • Xenta 527

Cause

An input in I/NET can only be controlled from an outside source if it is in "Test" or "Manual," so outputs must be used.

Resolution

When integrating with an I/NET system using a Xenta 5/7/9xx, all I/NET points must be defined as either AO or DO, regardless of the direction of information flow.

To get data from an I/NET system (into Lon, Bacnet, or Modbus) use the AO attribute "value" or DO attribute "value."

To get data into an I/NET system (from Lon, Bacnet or Modbus) use the AO attribute "value" or DO attribute "control."
