Can you mix HVAC and Security versions on the same system?

Issue

When adding a workstation to be used for security can I use a SEC version of the software even though other workstations have Integrated (INT) security keys for HVAC parts of the system?

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • Continuum Workstation and Web Client all versions
  • Security Key
  • Dongle

Cause

Mixing Security key options on different workstations could have undesired effects.

Resolution

It is not recommended to mix the security key options on different workstations, Continuum uses the Security levels to determine exactly what information a User can see or change.

So any system user should be able to log onto any workstation in the system and see the same information.

All Keys should also support the same I/O point count and Cyberstation version to operate correctly.

An exception to this may be the badging option -B that may only be required on certain workstations.

See What are the different options on the CyberStation security key? for a full list of options.
