Andover Infinity and N2
I have an Andover Infinity CX9200, (circa 1998) it has 10 VAV's tied into
its 2 wire bus.
It is set for 10Base-t
I want to connect the Infinity into an N2 bus.
The end result will be to monitor and change the Infinity's points,
using a P.C tied into an FX-40
What type of reasonably priced converter and software can I use?
AX Driver for Infinity
There is an AX Infinity driver.
From Infinity Driver eng"g guide:
The Andover Infinity driver was developed against the following two Infinity systems:
1) CMX-240, firmware version 1.4
a. SCX920, firmware version 1.31
b. LCX800, firmware version 2.16
2) Continuum NetController CPU-4M
c. LCX800, firmware version 2.16
The Andover Infinity driver has been field tested against the following Infinity systems:
1) CMX-246, firmware version 2.16
2) CX-9200 (firmware version unknown)
The ANDOVER INFINITY driver will function on all NiagaraAX platforms that support serial RS-232 communications. NiagaraAX-3.2 or higher is required.
Mapping of Infinity Points to Proxy Extensions
The Andover Infinity driver allows the creation of any of the following ControlPoint/ InfinityProxyExt combinations:
− NumericPoint with InfinityProxyExt
− NumericWritable with InfinityProxyExt
− BooleanPoint with InfinityProxyExt
− BooleanWritable with InfinityProxyExt
− StringPoint with InfinityProxyExt
− StringWritable with InfinityProxyExt
− EnumPoint with InfinityProxyExt
− EnumWritable with InfinityProxyExt
True but, I don't think that the driver is available in the FX line.

This command line solution looks pretty lame, This driver is not really a driver in the sense that you can take over the system with a JACE. The CX's would have to remain, and the Cyberstation would really need to stay unless you wanted to serial connect to the CX's or use the LT service tool , if you really wanted to fumble around that way when you do anything important.

Everything is going to remain where it is.
I was hoping to be able to connect the cx with possibly a serial connection
to the FX-40
Through FX server,I am only interested in mointoring points ,adjusting a couple of setpoints
and maybee able to overide some points.
Can this be done with the driver?
I have not called Johnson yet,do they make a driver for this?
All that work for 10 VAV boxes! If this is an account you have taken over, just change out the controllers to N2. Sounds like the CX is stand alone using Hyper-terminal to access the VT-100 interface. Just pray you don't have reload the beast when it loses memory.

Our accounts include some of the larger banks and hospitals
We are very sensitive to our clients budgets.
11 VMA's plus a couple of AHU controllers, at this time they do not have it in their budget.
They have no problems with the Infinity NCM
We then go to plan B and Plan C if needed.
This is mute because Tridium said they no longer produce or license
the Infinity driver, so it may be back to Plan C.
This is an older thread, but a topic I would like to get information on. In 2012 Johnson does license the driver for the FX line. Sorry if I should have started a new thread.
We have an Andover Continuum Net Controller (not Net Controller II). We have the driver guide as well, that seems to be tghe source of the reference in post #2. Howevere there is no source I can find on how to conect the CPU-4M to the FX-60. Any help? Thanks.
