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
Visual Integrator 3 - facility management HMI software for systems using open, interoperable LonWorks networks and Echelon Corporation’s LNS (LonWorks Network Services). - enhanced graphical user interface provides intuitive navigation from a high level site map to complex equipment details - extensive alarm, event and trend logging enables accurate and reliable analysis, troubleshooting and maintenance planning. - multi-level password protection prevents unauthorized system access Network Integrator 3 - LonWorks network management tool - fully integrated with Echelon's LNS - create, commission, and maintain open, interoperable, multi-vendor LonWorks® networks - comprehensive support for LonMark® interoperability standards - economical leave behind tool for network maintenance and operations - flexible remote access options save time and unnecessary service calls - multi-level password protection prevents unauthorized system access Circon BASIC Compiler LNS plug-ins

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.
Model (Device) Application
Model (Device) SMC-300
Application The SMC-300 captures, buffers, and prioritizes alarms from devices on a local LonWorks® network and then automatically dials-out and routes the alarms to local or remote computers or pagers based on configurable priority, alarm type, and schedule.
