i4BACnet extension "bacnet-core"

Abstract

The bacnet-core handles the connection between your visualization and the i4BACnet Server. More details can be found in this article.

Similar as in case of the i4SCADA wf-core, i4BACnet provides its own core extension.

The bacnet-core handles the connection between your visualization and the i4BACnet Server. Without it, the communication with the Server is not possible!

The  extension must be placed on any i4BACnet project page that contains other i4BACnet extensions, which need to interact with the BACnet Server.

Check properties of the bacnet-core extension and confirm that the BACnet Broker Server URL is correctly configured. More details upon the Broker URL may be found in chapter Service Settings.

To access the bacnet-core properties panel, the extension must be placed on the page of your project. As for all i4SCADA Smart Editor Extensions, user has two ways to access the Object Properties panel:

  • Click on the extension and check the Properties Inspector panel. In case the Properties Inspector panel is not available in Smart Editor, it's visibility may be enabled under TAB View.
