    Tracer summit neuron. Id

    I can't the read info off the scc(mp501)it's not communicating It looks like there is an object created for it but it fours not have the neuron id. Can anyone help with how to assign the id i have to the particular controller?
    Thanks

    Did you pull the cover off and look at the Neuron ID tag... there should be 1 tied on with a plastic tie and another stuck either on the board or behind the board. If you still cant find it, go direct with Rover or whatever LON software you are using, isolate it from the Lontalk network and do a scan with the software...

    Yes there is a neuron number. I just am not familiar with how to put the number on the network. I do not have rover or a laptop just the desktop. Is it possible to do so with just the desktop? ThNks for responding

    What software do you have for working on the network?

    Assuming that you have Tracer Summit... you can add or replace a Lontalk (COMM5) device.
    The best thing to do is go through the procedure in the manual Every Tracer Summit installation includes a PDF copy of their programming manual. This is about 800 pages and can be found by going to:
    C:\Program Files|Tracer Summit|Docs
    You want the Programming book and look on page 107... here is a snippet from the manual...
    Adding a New UCM to an Existing Comm5 Link (BMTX or High Capacity BMTW)
    To add a new UCM to an existing Comm5 link:
    1. Start your installation at the new UCM. Configure and verify operation
    of the new device in stand-alone mode, without the communication
    link connected, using the Rover service tool.
    If this device was previously installed, push the service pin for 15 seconds
    until the red service LED flashes.
    2. Connect the UCM to the communication link on the BCU. Move termination
    resistors, if necessary.
    3. At the PC workstation select Setup from the Tracer Summit main
    menu and open Site Configuration.
    4. From the Devices tab, click the Create UCM button. Then follow the
    procedure for “Creating Comm5 UCMs Objects for BMTX or High
    Capacity BMTW” on page 95. If you created the UCMs during the initial
    installation, you can skip this step.
    5. On the Devices tab, click the Assign Neuron ID button to open the
    Assign Neuron ID dialog box.
    When the Assign Neuron ID dialog box opens, all command buttons
    are unavailable while the PC workstation determines whether
    Comm5 activity is occurring in the BCU. When there is Comm5 activ-
    Note:
    Do not begin working on the link with the Rover service tool
    until you have verified that all devices are communicating with
    the BCU.
    Note:
    When you add a device to an existing link, you will not be able
    to preserve bindings between any of the new devices that are
    added. You will, however, be able to preserve existing bindings.
    If additional bindings are required, create them using the
    Rover service tool or Rover in Tracer Summit software, after
    the device has been added. Then remove the Rover service tool
    from the link and follow this procedure.
    Note:
    Unassigned UCMs show up in the UCMs list on the Devices
    tab with the default name and no Neuron ID assigned.
    Comm5 Links
    108 BMTX-SVP01B-EN
    ity, a progress bar displays in the Comm5 Status group in the upper
    right-hand corner of the dialog box. When all activity ends, the command
    buttons are available again.
    6. Click the Discover Neuron IDs button. In this phase of discovery, the
    BCU discovers devices on the link and builds a list that appears in
    the Neuron IDs Unassigned to UCM Objects. Confirmation that the
    BCU found devices also appears in the Comm5 Object and Neuron ID
    Summary on the left side of the dialog box.
    7. From the UCM Type drop-down list in the Assign Neuron ID dialog
    box, select the appropriate UCM type.
    8. From the Unassigned UCM Object Name drop-down list, select an
    Unassigned UCM Object Name to give an unassigned Neuron ID to.
    9. If you do not want to use the Neuron ID location label as the UCM
    object name, clear the Assign Location Label checkbox.
    10. In the Neuron IDs Unassigned to UCM Objects list, select the Neuron
    ID that you want associated with the UCM object displayed in the
    Unassigned UCM Object Name field.
    11. Click the Assign button to give the Neuron ID to the unassigned UCM
    object and move it to the Neuron ID Assigned to UCM Objects list
    12. Repeat the process if there are more UCM objects to assign.
    13. Click OK to return to the Devices tab. Notice that the UCM objects in
    Selected Device list now have Neuron IDs assigned to them.
    14. Click Save and close Site Configuration.
    You can see communication established with your newly installed
    devices by looking at the UCM editors. (If power is lost to the BCU
    before communication is established, the devices will have to be reinstalled.)
    Adding New UCMs to an Existing Comm5 Link (Standard Capacity BMTW)
    To add a new UCM to an existing Comm5 link:
    1. Start your installation at the new Comm5 device. Configure and verify
    operation of the new device in stand-alone mode, without the communication
    link connected, using the Rover service tool.
    If this device was previously installed, push the service pin for 15 seconds
    until the red service LED flashes.
    2. Connect the UCM to the communication link on the BCU. Move termination
    resistors, if necessary.
    3. When you have completed the installation of the new units on the
    link, push the service pin on all of the units. This broadcasts the Neuron
    ID of the new devices on the link. The BCU will discover only the
    new devices on the link.
    Note:
    Do not begin working on the link with the Rover service tool
    until you have verified that all devices are communicating with
    the BCU.
