Trane Summit to Niagara AX
Building has Summit and they want to get it to a web based system. It has 2-BMTW BCU's and a summit workstation onsite, its my understanding that i would have to create all the points as bacnet points and pull them into niagara over bacnet/ip. How time consuming is the point creation and how many points will the BCUs handle? Its seems I have seem a number somewhere around 250 before, the non-volatile memory on both is around 70% and volatile memory around 65%. The building has around 138-VAVs, 6-CSC's SWUDs, and a couple of PCMs for lighting and tower/pump control on each BCU. Sound like a lot to me? If you don't think this is going to work then I will have to look into Plan B and at this point there is no Plan B......:cheers:
Any advise is appreciated.
Summit to Niagara, Backbox option
If you are a Trane tech or know someone inside you can call Arkansas Trane and get what is called a Backbox from them. It will pull in all points from a BCU. Im not 100% on whether or not it must be a bmtw or bmtx. The job I did was an x. Yes it does work . I installed one when I worked at Trane a few years ago.
