    Mammouth EPiC backview

    Would anyone have any literature that they could share for this controller can't seem to find any literature that really explains how to find any specific info. Like BACnet MSTP default baud.

    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    Are you refering to the BACview hand held or panel mount device? If so it is manufactured by OEMctrl. You should be able to download the info from www.oemctrl.com

    If you need more information I might be able to email you some additional documents on this product.

    I was looking for an easy way to to see what the baud rate would default to its either 9600 , 19200 , or 38400 don't think it higher than that , trying to figure how to get to protocol 1 in the controller trying to save a few steps in my set up. Tried OEMCTRL but there seems to be a problem with there server will try again later oh and it's on a Mammouth V Cube unit. Thanks for your help.

    The BACview is just a display that is plugged into a controller, you can use the same BACview on multiple equipment/controllers as a service tool or have it dedicated to one piece of equipment/controller. All programs are created in the controller not BACview, hence the ability to use it as a service tool. I don't think you can discover or communicate directly to a BACview via BACnet. By default programs do not come with BACview interface, these have to be created separately from the program and graphics then downloaded to the controller.

    All the above is standard ALC and WebCTRL, OEM might do things differently, but I would guess it is the same.

    The BACview itself runs at 115200 baud. The controller baud rate for the BACnet port is what the dip switches are set for on the controller that is inside the unit.

    If we get a controller out of the box (default) it is set for 9600 if you were to use MS/TP.
