I have been asked to integrate some of the above Satchwell equipment into a main plant controlled by a Trend system.
We shall probably use a Honeywell or Trend branded Jace to do this, which is not giving me much concern at present.
My intention is to place a Jace on each Lon segment, at present with an MN MI and a PIU being the route back to the supervisor. Remove the MN MI and PIU and use the Jace as the interface to the fan coil and Vav controllers and learn each device into the Jace. Points from each device can then be sent to the Trend system for display.
However, I an a little concerned if it will be possible to carry out box flow commissioning to the variable volume controllers once they are on the Jace. There does not seem to be any sort wizard in the LonSiebe module in my version of workbench (its not the TAC,Satchwell,Invensys variety) that would allow me to undertake this task with any future replaced devices or new ones. Does anyone have a clue how we could perform this task in the future?
I also see that some others (Chris.W) have had issues with points being learnt that have no sensible labels. Is this still a problem others are coming across?
I'm not a Satchwell man in any way, and have had no experience with these controllers before. so I would be really gratefull of some guidance here fellas.
