You log on to the Commission mobile application to perform commissioning, flow balance, and checkout operations on BACnet/IP controllers.
You can reset and restart the IP-IO modules in different ways depending on how long you press the reset button. The resets and restarts can affect the retention of values after restart based on the retain levels configured for the variables.
The I/O wiring recommendations provide guidance on what type of wires should be used for the different Central IO modules, AS-B server onboard I/O, and BACnet/IP device onboard I/O, how to perform grounding, and how to connect different external devices to the inputs and outputs. This section also provides information on the external connectors required for the RP controller expansion modules. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
BACnet/IP devices have three types of memory:
The wiring recommendations for the communication ports on the automation servers, BACnet/IP devices, RP controller expansion modules, and Operator Display devices apply to wires and cables used for RS-485 communications, LonWorks communications, USB connections, Ethernet connections, sensor bus connections, room bus connections, and RP controller Modbus network connections. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
After you have wired the physical inputs and outputs of the controller, you perform I/O checkout to verify that the wiring was done correctly and that the physical inputs and outputs are working properly.
The wiring recommendations provide guidance regarding wiring of the Central IO modules, automation servers, BACnet/IP devices, RP controller expansion modules, and Operator Display.
Use this workflow to connect the Commission mobile application to BACnet/IP controllers.
You can use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect to both RP and MP controllers. Using BLE, you can commission the BACnet/IP controllers before there is an IP network infrastructure configured and also perform on-site commissioning more quickly and efficiently.
You perform I/O checkout on the Multi-I/O module to verify that the devices are wired correctly and that the physical inputs and outputs are working properly.
