    The application files are built into the TEC's firmware. You don't need any additional files. WCIS stores text files for the different applications on the local machine but they are mainly for speed. Once you connect to a TEC it will populate the points list. To change the applications you just go live with the TEC and double click the application number (point #2) and change the application. It should have the apps that can be used on that model of TEC in a drop down menu.

    Post Using Insight 3.13 how do we access load and edit PPCL on PTEC

    If changes are made to the PTEC outside of Insight then you need to delete and readd it using the app number. With Insight though you can edit the points and program directly and not worry about that. In Desigo CC any changes made would only be reflected if additional points are added to the program. These would have to be discovered using the BACnet discovery feature of Desigo CC. The PPCL resides inside the controller and is read once you try to edit the program using Insight. Or using the command line tool save the pcl file locally.

    Siemens has a PTEC tool for older Insight and/or field panel firmware. It is all prompt based and antiquated. If, however, you have a field panel with 3.3 or later firmware, you can use the Siemens Launchpad and the editors in there are far easier and more efficient to use. You can also go through a generic BACnet router, but it is recommended you use the field panel in the ALN that the PTEC FLN is attached to as your router.

    The TEC has the applications built in. You do not need to load the application. WCIS is used to address and tell the TEC what application to use and then set up the desired parameters. You can Google the application numbers to find out which one you need. WCIS is out there.
