Hello, I'm having some issues with Bacnet that I'm hoping someone might have some insight on. Please bear with me as I'm not super familiar with Bacnet yet.
The setup is as follows
- Mango ES
- PC running a software called FAS-BAC for energy by AFDTEK
This software is a translator for a Carma metering solution. Basically what it's supposed to do is interface with the Carma server and then present the objects as Bacnet objects. This is the point where my knowledge of Bacnet fails me a bit. The FAS-BAC server appears as an object on the Bacnet network and the Mango can see it. All the of the meter objects are supposed to appear as virtual devices I believe, or at least there is supposed to be another "device" with all the meter readings. Anyway, I can't get the mango to see anything past the base server device. I can't seem to scan the device for any properties or points either, I get an error in the mango interface which I didn't write down.
The reason I'm asking here is because I have a piece of software on my laptop, YABE (yet another Bacnet explorer) and when I scan the network I can see what I'm looking for. I can see the FAS-BAC server device, I can see the "virtual" devices and I can discover the meter points.
At this point, until I get to site again and try it again, I'm curious if there are any known issues around this kind of setup with the Mango? Are there limitations I need to be aware of? Is there something special I need to do for virtual devices? I should be able to get to site this week and read exactly what the error message is as well as even grab wireshark logs to see what is going on.
Thanks a lot!
