Cause

Want to use Xenta Server as a controller in StruxureWare Building Operations.

Resolution

No there are no special support for Xenta servers. But you can add then as normal LonWorks devices. You can only read/write SNVTs from the Xenta server.

Normal Lon rules applies here, you can have a maximum of 64 nodes to a segment (we recommend to keep it under that). TAC Xenta Server I/O modules will not be seen in StruxureWare Building Operation, but they will count towards the 64 nodes on the segment. See Lessons Learned Article #7070 for more information on Lonworks units in StruxureWare Building Operation.
