Can wireless and wired controllers be used on a single comm port?


If a wireless system with a BCX is setup on comm2 and a few wired controllers are needed, can the wired controllers be added to comm2?

Wireless and wired communication cannot be used on the same comm port. A comm port that has wireless selected is a different protocol than infinet or bacnet mstp. The comm port can only speak one protocol at a time.


To use a wireless and a wired solution at the same time, 2 comm ports are required by using one of the following configurations:

9680 (1 comm port for wireless and 1 for wired)

2 different controllers (2 BCXs with 1 having comm2 enabled for wired, the other BCX with Comm2 for wireless)
