I guess I'll know more once I get to it through HYPERTERM.

    Thanks for the info.
    Yes a license is required to be able to communicate Bacnet

    Is connecting to the device via TelNet, the same as using the DESIGO firmware download tool, and choosing terminal once connected? What functionality does it provide?

    Telnet is hyper terminal via the command prompt over the Ethernet.

    Apologies, I meant hyper terminal. What functionality does it provide to you when connected to a Siemens PXC though please?

    Full functionality via Hyperterminal. Of course, you can't backup\restore databases.

    Are the controllers you're referring to Apogee devices? It's just I have a PXC-128u on the bench at work, and when I read this thread, thought I would give it a try, but to no avail. Mine is a PX Desigo device, replacement for Visonik.

    Wow desigo Is already here ? I have heard our office are starting to train our techs on it. I have worked for Siemens Building Automations for around 15 years so if anyone has some question about any I our parts maybe I can help just send me a message. I work out in the field everyday.

    Are there any PXC controllers that have manual knobs like some MEC controllers? As in being able to manually modulate 0-10V output.

    Yes there is a part that takes the battery cover of the PXC and adds HOA switches. I do not have a part number.

    What is the deal behind a PXC coldstart? It seems that if you change the network name, ip info or bacnet info, the pxc dumps its programming and you have to load everything back in...

    If you change the IP, bacnet ID, BLN name, or system name all siemens panels coldstart. If the server is insight or desigo cc, it will reload the panel when it reconnects. If it doesnt reload, you can go the the dbfile and select restore from flash. This is assuming it was set up properly to be used on a 3rd party system. Proper set up would include saving memory to flash and setting to autorestore. If on a siemens front end, do not select autorestore, or the server will not reload it, and it can also affects trend collection

    Still, don't understand the reasoning behind the coldstart...if I change these parameters on an ALC LGE, it doesn't dump its setup info...just seems weird.
