You can create a device interface (XIF) definition for a BACnet/IP or BACnet MS/TP device.  To create a BACnet XIF definition, you create a CSV file with a .bac extension that defines the device interface for a BACnet device interface (XIF). The BACnet XIF specifies the BACnet device interface name, program ID, and manufacturer, and lists all the BACnet objects to be polled or updated by the SmartServer. To create the file, you will need the manufacturer's BACnet Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) for the device, or the BACnet object type and object instance numbers reported by a BACnet workstation. You can download a free BACnet workstation for this purpose here.
