MNB-V2 functions as a standalone controller – can it be flow balanced without an UNC/ENC or MNB-1000 controller?
Controller is standalone
Yes, it is possible to run WorkPlace Flow Balance Tool without an UNC/ENC. The MNB-Roam-IA, RS485 to RS232 Bluetooth adapter can be used for this purpose. The adapter converts RS-485 signals to either RS-232 or Bluetooth protocols. It allows for communications between a PC (desktop or laptop) and I/A Series MicroNet BACnet Controllers. The supplied adapter cable provides the necessary connection between the RoamIA and the MS/TP jack of a MNB-V1 or MNB-v2 controller.
An external USB Bluetooth adaptor must be purchased for systems that do not currently have Bluetooth capability. The Belkin USB, Model F8T017 - UPC Code: 7 22868 67681 3 is the only external adaptor that has been approved and tested to for use with WorkPlace Tech. Although other external adapters may work, use of this adapter is required for resolving product support issues.
The MNB-Roam-IA can be purchased through our Purchased Product division. The Belkin USB, Model F8T017 Bluetooth adapter will have to be attained through other sources.
