bCX shows BACnet Network Number zero in the Continuum Explorer.

Issue

bCX shows BACnet Network Number zero in the Continuum Explorer Device Editor even though the BACnet Network Id - Comm2 shows value such as 2765 in the bCX configuration web page.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • CyberStation
  • bCX4040
  • bCX4000
  • b4920
  • b3 devices

Cause

bCX sits on IP level network which Cyberstation identifies as network 0.

Resolution

The value entered in the bCX's BACnet Network Id - Comm2 from the configuration webpage is the number of the network the bCX will host on its MSTP port. The bCX itself is located on the IP level network that CyberStation identifies as Network 0.

BACnet devices located in the MSTP field bus of the bCX will show their BACnet Network Number as the value configured in the bCX's BACnet Network Id - Comm2 (default value 2765)
