I recently ordered 4 Tstat8’s. I am testing out getting just one to work before I wire up the others. Rather than use the T3000 software, I am using a JACE 8000 with Niagara workbench 4.8. I have tried adding my Tstat8 via BacNet over MSTP and Modbus. I have tried multiple baud rates for Modbus and BacNet MSTP and have not found the device after a search through either protocols.
I have configured the limited settings offered from pressing the arrow < > keys on the thermostat. I have set my Protocol, Baudrate and Modbus address.
It looks like BacNet MSTP is just flat out not working which is very disappointing as I ordered these specifically because the documentation for the tstat8 said it could do BacNet MSTP. I have tried to discover device multiple times to no avail. Though when I leave the JACE on BacNet and change the tstat8 to modbus, it gives me a warning on the tstat8 screen that BacNet MSTP protocol has been detected.
I decided to give Modbus a shot. Though I was not able to discover the device with that either.
I feel like I am missing some important information about the tstat8 to configure Niagara workbench for Modbus.
Modbus Port configuration in Niagara Workbench 4.8 asks for, with these as the options:
Port Name: COM2 for this project. (Got this figured no problem)
Baud Rate: Baud19200 (Was easy enough to set this from the Tstat8 menu)
Data Bits: Data Bits8, Data Bits7, Data Bits6, Data Bits5 (Which to select out of this?)
Stop Bits: Stop Bits1, Stop Bits2 (Which to select out of this?)
Parity: Even, Odd, None, Mark, Space (Which to select out of this?)
I have read all documentation for the Tstat8. Though I could have missed something.
Can you help me get my Tstat8 working with my JACE. I have a few days to spend on this before I have to give up and attempt a return of the product for not working.
