We are currently expanding a Distech Project which is approximately 12 years old.
The project consists of a Lonwatcher 2.3 front end PC which is connected to approximately 30 controllers of varying types (i.e. EC-4A, EC-8C, EC-1b & EC12C) via PCTLA card. The majority of these controllers are Hardware version 6.
Can anyone answer these questions for me:
1 – Can Distech controllers of hardware version 6 be upgraded to be Freely Programmable (i.e. so that they use the Freely Programmable LNS Plugin)?
2 – Is there a web solution (i.e. web server) we can implement with the Lonwatcher 2.3 Front End software to make the system visible via an IP network?
3 – Is there a way of displaying / serving up the proprietary distech points available in programming tools (inputs, outputs, variables etc)? As they don't seem to be available as SNVTs and the user configurable SNVTs are all currently used for inter controller communication.
