Using the T3000 Bacnet tool

Here is how you can use the T3000 bacnet tool to check bacnet objects on the T3 controllers and other bacnet devices.

Bring up the tool from the T3000 menu → Tools ->Bacnet Tool shown at Tab1.
A dialog pops up at tab2 where you can click the “+” icon to scan for Bacnet devices. The IP address of your PC will show at tab3, accept the defaults there. At tab4 you can set up a connection over a serial port, leave this blank since we’re checking for devices on the Ethernet port in this example.
The devices are discovered and populated in the tree at Tab5. Subnet devices connected to the T3 controller will show up at Tab6 if they are set up as bacnet devices. If they’re set as modbus devices they will not show up here. All the bacnet objects in a particular device show up at Tab7 and you can see the values of the objects on the right at tab8.

If you are having troubles discovering bacnet subnet devices you can check that a subnet of the T3 controller is set to Bacnet mode. For now you have to close the Bacnet Tool described above (We’re working on a fix to enable simultaneous use of T3000 and the Bacnet tool), then select the gear icon at Tab9 and check the com port settings at Tab10. You can also check the network health at Tab11 which brings up the packet counts for all subnetworks lower down at Tab12.
