Trying to understand LON software. Planning on attending some classes at Echelon in April.Just need some input to get rolling. From what I can gather there are at least 3 programming softwares for LON devices. Echelon - LONmaker, Distech - LONwatcher, and Circon - Network Integrator 3 Network Management Tool. We are looking at Circon line of controls - haven't made any commitments yet. What software is better? I was going to go ahead and purchase the LONMaker from echelon - it is visio based which I like. If we do go with Circon controls mainly, is it better to go with their software? Is there BASIC Programming Software a seperate application or does it go with there programming software. Also how will going with a certain software effect the monitoring software that Circon and Distech have-i.e. Circon-Visual Integrator 3 and Distech - LONDisplay.I undersand that all three with create networks, but what is the best way to go.
Thanks for the input.
