I am being challenged to communicate with an old Staefa Smart 2 system which has the Talon front end. I would like to get a copy of the "Thumb Drive PCtool" and pin outs of the required cables. Anyone have an idea where I can locate them? Any info on how to use the PCTool progam and /or work the Staefa controllers would be appreciated as well.

Willy's4. I still have not heard anything from the site administrator. I did run into another possible option - Belimo's pcTalk V3.0??? This product is used with a USB to R11 interface which appears (on paper at least) to be similar to the Staefa Smart 2 set-up.
Is this the same program? I am heading back to the base in a couple of weeks and am not at all confident that base personnel will have a way for me to run the vav boxes and air handlers through their paces.
I also would like info on the cable interface required to talk with Staefa Smart 2.
I have over 15 posts, but I am not sure that they all have counted.
I would really like to get my hands on a copy of the PC tool software. I am in a building that still has a lot of Smart2 cards. We upgraded to a tridium front end last year and although we can interface with the smart2 cards the points and controls are limited. I'd like to be able to play with the PC tool and see if i can get more functionalility into the tridium system using the code from the PC tool program.
I know the battery in the Smart Tool is 12VDC but my coworker soldered a 9 volt battery connector and popped a simple 9volt battery in his Smart Tool and it actually worked! It's worth a shot or taking the battery pack out and matching it up at batteries plus. There is nothing too special about it.
