    Hi all.

    Schneider Electric Project Services Team in Adelaide have just released our latest version of this product, which may possibly result in the old 5000BACNET product going end of life.

    Some of you have already bought and are using the V1 GUI.
    We have just updated to V2 GUI and have increased some of its abilities.

    V2 now supports:
    300 total mapped points across multiple cbus applications from C-Bus network to BACnet.
    Supported applications are: All lighting apps, trigger and enable app.

    We sell it in a kit format with a 5500CN2 as it needs its own CNI to work.
    (C-Bus CNI's are limited to 1 software socket connection).

    Product is ordered via Clipsal / Schneider "comms ops" as a GCR or special.

    FYI, this product has been dis-continued.

    Now that the Standard automation controllers both function as BACnet IP Servers, there is no requirement for this custom product.

    5500SHAC - 50 BACnet IP points
    5500NAC - 500 BACnet IP points

    Note that there are some limitations with the NAC/SHAC product and mapping of CBus group addresses:
    - Whilst the NAC/SHAC supports both AV and BV values, CBus group addresses are natively exported as AV value (0-255), if you need the Group address as a BV (binary value) you will need to map the normal group address object to a newly created Binary Value on User application=250.

    - Multi state values not supported

    - BACnet schedules are not supported.

    Cheers
