Delta (V2 Alarm Routing to V3 Devices)
I've inherited an older system which is a mishmash of V2 and V3 panels. I am used to another controls system, so I'm trying to come up to speed on the delta stuff.
The panels are mostly V2. The V2 panels are routed into the main BACnet V3 panels with a DCU.
I have one device (V3 DSC) capable of dispatching emails, which I want to use to notify me of alarms. I have set up a EVR on the DSC to do this, and tested it. It does send emails correctly.
The problem is that I want to route old V2 Alarms over to this event router on this V3 panel. There is a DCU which is acting as a router. As I understand it, it is the bridge between the old V2 stuff and the BACnet network the V3 lives on. The problem, is that I can't get V2 alarms to get past the DCU. The DCU sees them (as noted in the event log, which specifically records anything from *.AL*.*, but does not appear to broadcast them as events to other V3 panels.
Thanks in advance,
Well, it would seem the EVR I've set up does not even route BACnet events.
It works fine when I print to it from a GCL program, but it does not appear to work when an event happens. The event is generated on the same panel as the EVR, and the EVR is set to route EVC*. Not sure what is happening or why it isn't working.
