Continuum system Interfacing with BACnet Ethernet devices

Issue

Need to interface Continuum system with 3rd party BACnet Ethernet devices on the network.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

Continuum

BCX4040

Cause

Continuum with bCX BACnet IP devices need to share data with BACnet Ethernet device on the network.

Resolution

Set one of the bCX on the network to be enabled for the BACnet Ethernet in bCX configuration webpage, and set the same value for the BACnet Network ID - Ethernet with the other Ethernet devices.

Enabling this option on a BCX allows the BCX to communicate both Bacnet IP AND Bacnet Ethernet, it does not turn off Bacnet IP.
