Automation Server support for hosting MPX or RPC

Issue

Automation Server support for hosting MPX or RPC

Product Line

EcoStruxure Building Operation

Environment

  • Automation Server
  • MPX, MPC, MPV
  • RPC

Cause

The original Automation Server can be set up to fully host (host server) and configure both MPX and RPC devices, but the Architectural Guidelines do not specify how many devices can be fully hosted.

Resolution

Full hosting of MPX, RPC is only supported and tested on AS-P, AS-B and Enterprise Server. This is confirmed in the MPX and RPC Specification Sheet.

"MP-C/MP-V/RPC can either be used as a standalone BACnet/IP field controller or as part of an EcoStruxure BMS with a SmartX AS-P or ASB server or an Enterprise Server as the parent server."

MPX, RPC can be simply BACnet hosted on an Automation Server, but the use as parent or host server is not supported or tested.
