In addition to the MP controllers and the b3 and MNB families of BACnet MS/TP controllers, the EcoStruxure smoke control system also supports the proprietary Infinet i2 family of controllers when connected to the AS-P-SMK smoke control server. The AS-P-SMK and AS-P-NLS-SMK Servers provide integrated support for the Infinet i2 controllers and has been part of the UL864 system listing since evaluation in 2018.
The EcoStruxure smoke control system supports the MP controllers and IP-IO modules mentioned previously in this guide.
