This section distinguishes between Operator Interfaces and Field Interfaces to the BAS. The Operator Interface refers to the main 'front-end' method for accessing and operating the BAS. The Field Interfaces typically access the BAS from the controller-level and have limited functionality, and may include HID, LDP, and ZBI as described below. This section describes the devices only; OI functionality is generally covered in the Software, while Field Interface functionality is detailed further in the individual Controllers
Operator Interfaces (OI)
Dedicated Operator Workstation (OWS)
Dedicated PC(s) with proprietary workstation software
"Thin" Client Browser Internet Explorer. Requires Panorama software running on a Web Server PC located on the IT Network.
"Thick" Client Browser "Ensemble" User interface hardware. Operates under Windows 95 - Windows NT/2000. "Panorama" Grapical user interface software. Windows 2000/XP operating system and is required to support Thin clients.
Product Application(s): N.A.
Handheld Interface Devices (HID)
PDA-Based Information not provided
Proprietary Information not provided
Local Display Panel (LDP) Information not provided
Zone Based Interfaces (ZBI)
Thermostat with communication port to access local controller/network Information not provided
Other thermostat types available (without communication ports)
Interface to BAS Networks Ethernet/IP
Compatible with the building's IT network? Information not provided
Protocol(s) TelNet/ARCNET, Proprietary
Cabling and Speeds TelNet @ 250 Kbps ARCNET @ 1.2 Kbps
Expansion Capability Up to 254 TNR's and 150 workstations. By using a wide area network the TNR expands to 25146 Teletrol controllers and 6754 workstations.
Additional Information
Peer-to-Peer or Polling? Peer to Peer
Protocol(s) Teletrol TSCnet
Cabling and Speeds 19.2 Kbps
Expansion Capability 0-127 TSC controllers depending on which Integrator controller is used.
Additional Information
Includes a listing of available Gateways, Routers and other devices that provide additional communications flexibility into and out of the BAS. Repeaters, bridges, standard modems and the like are typically not included here. Note: If in use by the BAS, the Internet/building IT Network is extremely open and non-proprietary. If a vendor uses the IT Network, CI devices such as IP routers and hubs can be purchased from third parties.
