What is the best practice to get information about door sensors condition from ACAC22000 Active Flow Controller?
Directly from controller by MODBUS or it is possible to monitor via inrow cooling unit which AFC connected to by a-link?
Also, does DCE include DDF for ASA22000 MODBUS?

The AC units would likely be monitored via SNMP independently from the ACAC22000. The ACAC22000 would then be monitored for it's sensors via Modbus. As for a DDF, I checked 7.4.1 and do not find one on the system by default. To get a non-default DDF, please go to:
You must search for a DDF and when / if one is not found, it gives you the opportunity to request one.

Hi Steve, according the user guide http://www.apc.com/salestools/BFER-8THM22/BFER-8THM22_R1_EN.pdf AFC unit has no SNMP interface. But it can send its information to cooling units via a-link. Is it possible to check if cooling units may map this info to its SNMP?

Hi Dmitry, I don't recall seeing what AC unit (s) is being used in conjunction with this ACAC2200. The AC unit is monitored separately whether it is Modbus or SNMP. As I mentioned, the ACAC2200 itself is monitored via modbus. Steve

Hi Dmitry, We do not have the direct DDF for ASA22000 MODBUS, but I believe one of the DDF in our repository would work. In order to compare that I would require modbus register map for ASA22000 MODBUS from you, could you please provide the same? Thanks and Regards, Mohan Gowda
