Frequently Asked Questions

1. Pricing and Licencing

Answer: There is no set price for BACnetP2. The pricing depends on the system. In order for us to get the information which we require in order to give you a quote, please send us two reports: "Panel Configuration Report" and "System Profile Report".

Answer: You need to run 2 reports from the Insight PC. The two reports are:"Panel Configuration Report" and "System Profile Report". For more information on BACnetP2 pricing and how to get the required site information, please see BACnetP2 Pricing

If for any reason you cannot send us the reports, please send us the following:

P2 BLN type (RS485 or Ethernet)

Number of servers (Ethernet = 1, RS485 = Number of P2 networks (BLNs))

Number of TECs

Answer: The same reports are required as for a quote (See Question 1.1) with the addition of the BACnetP2 "Driver ID". The BACnetP2 "Driver ID" will be displayed as BACnet object CSV7 in the format: {12345-12345-12345-1234-1234-1234}.
