B3 device is offline after deploying successfully from PCS


An offline edit in PCS deploys successfully. When viewed in Workstation, the Automation Server is online, but all b3s are offline.

Product Line

EcoStruxure Building Operation


  • SmartStruxure 1.50
  • PCS
  • AS 1.5
  • BACnet interface


The b3s have a BACnet Device ID which is different from that assigned to b3s in PCS. The BACnet device ID can not be modified in PCS after it has been assigned.


It is best to modify the BACnet Device ID in Continuum:

  1. Use a BCX4040. Connect with b3 devices one by one or together
  2. Bring b3s online in Continuum Workstation
  3. Modify the BACnet Device ID for each b3 to the BACnet Device ID assigned in PCS
  4. Go back to SBO Workstation. b3s should be online.
