titleSmartServer 3.2 and higher releases

For SmartServer 3.2 and higher, see (Optional) Setting up BACnet.

This section covers the following topics:

...

  1. Open the SmartServer Configuration page as described in Configure Your SmartServer.

  2. Click the BACnet tab.



  3. If there is no checkmark in the Enable BACnet Client, Router, and Server box, click the box so the checkmark appears.

  4. Click the Enable BACnet Diagnostic Port box to enable or disable the diagnostic port (this option was added in SmartServer 2.6).

  5. Set a unique UDP port number and BACnet network number for each interface listed in the interface table.  In the above example, the three interfaces are configured to use BAC0, BAC1, and BAC2 as the UDP port numbers and to use network numbers 112, 111, and 113.  You can change these numbers to any value within the ranges listed in the heading with the exception that you cannot assign the same port number or the same network number to two different interfaces.

  6. Click the Update button.

...

You can use the SmartServer BACnet Client to interface with BACnet/IP and BACnet/MS-TP devices and interact with those devices using the SmartServer CMS and other IAP client applications.  An external BACnet/IP to BACnet/MS-TP router is required to communicate with any BACnet/MS-TP devices.  See (Optional) Add a BACnet Interface in SmartServer Getting Started for a description of the procedures to define, discover, and provision BACnet devices.

...

  1. Enable BACnet as described in EnablingBACnet Enabling BACnet.  Add a port and network number for one or both of your Ethernet interfaces and one of your LON interfaces if not specified.

  2. Open the SmartServer Configuration page as described in Configure Your SmartServer.  Click the BACnet tab.  Clear the Overrride Standard (10.<domain>.<subnet>.<node>) option inLON/IP Class A Network and then click the Update button.

  3. Reboot you SmartServer as described in Rebooting Your SmartServer.

  4. Define your BACnet FT device type as described in Defining Device Types.

  5. Create your BACnet FT device as described in Discovering, Defining, or Importing Devices.

  6. Provision your BACnet FT device as described in Provisioning Devices.

  7. The BACnet Router and your BACnet FT device will now be visible to BACnet/IP workstations or browsers.  For example, a BACnet router and a BACnet FT device will appear as follows in the BACnet browser:

...

  1. Open the SmartServer console as described in the section Connecting to Your SmartServer (serial or SSH) as the apollo user.

  2. Enter the following command:
    sudo nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/echltx.conf

  3. Add the following directives:
    • domainId=AB (where AB is any two-digit hex code)
    • domainLength=1

  4. Save and exit using CTRL-X and follow the prompts.

  5. To make this domain persist across apollo-reset operations, enter the following command:
    sudo cp /etc/supervisor/conf.d/echltx.conf /etc/supervisor/conf.d/echltx.template 
         

...

  1. Switch to LON Independent Management Mode (IMM) as described in (Optional) Switch off LON Management.

  2. On the Features configuration page, in the RNI Configuration table, check Enable  for lon0 and click the Update button.  If you have multiple network interfaces, you can also use an internal IP-70 RNI.

  3. Make a note of the port specified for the RNI (typically 1628).

  4. Enable BACnet as described in EnablingBACnet Enabling BACnet.  Add a port and network number for one or both of your Ethernet interfaces and one of your LON interfaces if not specified.

  5. Open the SmartServer Configuration page as described in Configure Your SmartServer.  Click the BACnet tab.  Clear the Overrride Standard (10.<domain>.<subnet>.<node>) option inLON/IP Class A Network and then click the Update button.

  6. Reboot you SmartServer as described in Rebooting Your SmartServer.

At a minimum, you need a router to be set up between the external FT channel and the internal IP-70 channel and commissioned for BACnet routing to work. The steps that follow provide this minimal configuration.

  1. Create an RNI entry in LonWorks Interfaces control panel applet on your computer using the SmartServer IPv4 address and the port you noted from the Features configuration page.

  2. Create an IzoT CT drawing using the RNI as the network interface.

  3. Once the drawing is created, it will have the RNI connected to the FT channel.

  4. Create a new IP-70 channel.

  5. Create a router between the FT channel and the IP-70 channel.

  6. Commission the router using the Service/Connect button for the specific U60 router on the System configuration page.

  7. Create the required BACnet FT device, attached to the FT channel, creating a new device template as you proceed.

  8. Commission the device, loading the application as required.
