Is there a way to extract equipment files out of Ivu into Application Builder?
I have a building with an Ivu Plus. There is mostly CC6400's with I/O's. I need to add a setpoint to the graphics and it not a network point, yet. It looks like the only way to do this is create a equipment file with that point included......but I don't see a way of duplicating the existing equipment file.
Am I going about this wrong? I have only experience with application controllers.
Application builder will allow you to "re-edit" a downloaded "Application Builder" program,
if it was created with App Builder, but there are some limiting factors. Many of the
App Builder programs are "pre-engineered" application specific control programs" and
have limits as to what you can add, delete, or change.
Do you have the i-vu Tools?
Do you have a Link, or a UPC on the system that brings in the CCN data tables?
It sounds like you are running a i-Vu CCN system, which would require that you have at the least, an i-Vu CCN Link
if you wanted to do some custom i-Vu to CCN points mapping.
There are several different ways of doing what you want to do, and if you could give me a better
description of the i-Vu system description, I could point you in the right direction.
Yes I have Ivu tools. The version of app builder is 5.1. I just don't see how you can upload and edit........if that's possible.
Yes there is a link. The system consists of 7 CC6400's with 2 I/O each, 25 3V VAV controllers, and one chiller on the link's BacNet. They are going into the link to a Ivu Plus.
Maybe I'm over complicating things. All I want to do is add low occupied setpoint from a CC6400's setpoint table to the graphics. It's setpoint table 12. But that setpoint is not a setup as a Network setpoint and is not mapped.
Ok, lets see if I understand;
You have what appears to be mostly CCN controllers, and someone put a "i-Vu Open Plus 5.1" frontend in to gain access to the CCN controllers?
If you have a "i-Vu CCN 4.2" frontend installed, with an "i-Vu CCN Link" to connect the CCN buss, and associated controllers, to the
i-Vu server, than you would want to use the "i-Vu CCN 4.2 Tools" version of "Application Builder".
If you can clarify which version of Link , and i-Vu server you have, I could actually post a screen capture of how you could
add another "CCN passive point" into the i-Vu CCN Link, that would make it available to the graphic so that you could
create a changeable point value.
If you do have a "i-Vu Open Plus 5.1" server, with a i-Vu Open Link installed, than your options become a bit more involved,
as the "i-Vu Open Plus 5.1, and the i-Vu Open Link do not directly have access to the CCN buss YET.
I have added some screen shots showing the difference between the two products.

In the middle of this year Carrier should be releasing a 6.0 version of i-Vu that will be cross-platform compliant;
i-Vu will be able to work with both BACnet and CCN (and almost all other major BAS protocols) with one i-Vu platform,
but until then...
It's a I-vu Plus 4.2. I'm not sure exactly what link it has....but I do know that the I-vu standard was replace with a I-vu plus with link to accept the new Bacnet chiller.
I don't have Application Builder 4.2. I have 5.1 do to another project that we did.

Just what I thought. I can almost guess that the Link you have on the site is a i-Vu CCN Link.
All you would have to do on your network tree is right pick on the "Gateway" and select
driver properties or modstat, and send a screen capture of the modstat, or the device properties page.
Also, if you could expand on the "CC6400" node on your tree, post a screen capture, because
I want to see if the CCN CC6400 tables were imported into the i-Vu CCN Server.
Once you have posted that, and if it does turn out to be a i-Vu CCN Link, I can post which
"iVu CCN Application Builder" integration point type to use from the pull down choices.
Actually, I could email you the actual integration program to download into the link
for the point you need, as that is not illegal, but I would have to private email that to you.
If it is not a i-Vu CCN Link, there are still other options.
As for not having the "i-Vu CCN 4.2 Tools", see if your Carrier rep you work with will give
you a set, and if not, the package is not expensive to buy. Some Carrier reps do require
you sign up and attend the class on i-Vu CCN, and you get the tools package with the class,
just depends on where you are in the country, and how your Carrier rep handles it.
There is a good reason they ask techs to go to the class, as half trained techs can bestow
a world of hurt onto a BAS in a hurry, and then blame the manufacturer.
Sorry I can't send you the software, as it is copyrighted, and that would be illegal, and my
wife says she will not visit me in jail.
Anyway, your almost there.
I have 4.2 coming.
As far as the link.......It's a I-Vu Link (CIV-L).

Excellent! Looks like the tables were scanned in also.
Here is what the i-Vu CCN 4.2 Application Builder integration program would look like:
I can email you the actual program if you private email me.
