    Differences

    Tracer Summit is the "Building Automation System" which usually includes Rover. Then you have Rover that you can purchase and put on a laptop to access vav controllers.

    Tracer Summit is actually the Building automation workstation software. This software works with the Trane Summit BCU's It does not include Rover Software with it.

    Rover is a software tool used for commissioning and programming Trane devices from VAV's, AHU, Fan Coils and custom programmable MP581's. There are several Version of Rover available. Test and Balance Only, COMM 4 and COMM 5 or Both together.

    Each requires software licences and hardware to work correctly. For LON you need a Echelon COMM adapter and for COMM 4 you need an RS-485 2 wire adapter.

    Hope this helps you understand a bit more.

    Althought if you have Summit AND rover software on the same comp, you can use passthough to access your terminal controllers without a separate interface (the rover tool)
