Blocks
DR-S-BAC-AX Now Obsolete
• The current BACnet Supervisor Driver will
no longer be offered which uses the
bacnetWS module.
• The part number DR-S-BACNET is the net
client and server bundle for the supervisor
• The bacnetws module will be included in
the 3.7 build, but Tridium will discontinue
further development on this module
– All future enhancements will be provided for in
the bacnetOws and bacnetAws modules
OWS BACnet Listing
What is OWS?
• The Operator Work Station (OWS) provides
additional functionality to the Supervisor to
be beyond the standard features of the
BACnet IP Client Driver and is listed by BTL.
• Value of OWS
– Meet BTL listing requirements for an OWS
– Qualify for specifications calling out OWS Listed
products
– Additional Supervisor Features
OWS Features
In addition to features included with the standard BACnet
Client driver, the OWS option offers:
• Event Information
– For BACnet devices that support GetEventInformation
service, outstanding device events that were not logged in
Niagara may be requested. The event is then propagated to
the Niagara alarm service. For devices that support
GetAlarmSummary, the driver will display unacknowledged
alarms, but not import alarms into the Niagara alarm service.
• Enrollment Summary
– Retrieves a summary of BACnet objects within a device that
match a set of user definable criteria.
• Configurable Threads for Polling
– Device polling threads may be increased to more than 2
threads if increased performance is needed.
• Configurable Threads for Proxy Point Writes
– Multiple threads may now be configured for proxy points.
Useful for networks that have a large number of proxy points
configured to write on start.
Target Customers for OWS
• The daily operator who needs the ability to
monitor basic system status and to
perform simple modification to the
operation of the system
• Projects that specify BACnet OWS

Additional Features compared to BACnet IP Client
AWS BTL Listing
What is AWS?
• The Advanced Work Station (AWS)
provides the highest level of functionality
to the Supervisor to Monitor and Control a
BACnet System
• Value of AWS
– Meet BTL listing requirements for an AWS
– Qualify for specifications calling out AWS
Listed products
– Additional Supervisory Functions for
BACnet Systems
AWS Features
In addition to the OWS option features, the AWS option
provides:
• Communication Control
– Control a device’s ability to generate traffic on a network.
Useful for diagnostics or if a device is faulty.
• Reinitialize Device
– Ability to restart a device from the AWS
• Backup Device (for devices that support DM-BR-B BIBB)
– Backup a device’s configuration to a file
• Restore Device (for devices that support DM-BR-B BIBB)
– Restore a previous backup to a device
• History Import Manager
– Import BACnet Event Log objects to a Niagara history.
• Configuration Manager (for devices that support this functionality)
– Create additional BACnet objects in a BACnet device
– Delete BACnet objects in a BACnet device
Target Customer for AWS
• Building operator or technician with an
advanced level of technical ability
– Provides support for limited configuration
actions and ongoing commissioning activities
• Projects that specify BACnet AWS
AWS Device Manager View
Additional Features compared to BACnet OWS
AWS Config Manager – New Features
• Create new BACnet objects in the remote
BACnet device
• Delete selected BACnet objects in the
remote BACnet device
BACnet Server and AWS/OWS
• OWS and AWS were not tested by BTL
with the export function enabled
– Server functionality is not required by BTL for
the OWS/AWS Device Profiles
• The OWS and AWS Parts can only be
added to the BACnet IP Client Driver on
the AX Supervisor to keep the BTL listing
valid
• If the OWS or AWS parts are added to a
station with the BACnet Export enabled,
the BTL listing will become invalid
BACnet B-BC Listing for JACEs
• The JACE BACnet Driver received the
B-BC Listing in 2008. The BACnet Driver
is B-BC listed for NiagaraAX version 3.2.20
and higher
– Includes the Server Features
– If a customer needs BTL Listed OWS/AWS
and BTL Listed Server features, use a JACE
and Supervisor combination
Upgrading a BACnet Supervisor
• An existing BACnet Supervisor station is
not directly upgradable to run as a BACnet
AWS or BACnet OWS Supervisor
• An “offline conversion utility” is provided in
the bacnetAws and bacnetOws modules
– This tool is documented in the Appendix of the
BACnet Guide (available on Niagara Central)
–Converts the config.bog database file
Upgrading an OWS to an AWS Station
• If a customer purchases OWS and
needs/desires to upgrade to AWS, there is
an additional charge and part number to
order the AWS module
• An offline converter tool is used to
upgrade the config.bog database file to be
compatible as a BACnet AWS Supervisor
– Documented in the Appendix of the BACnet
Guide (available on Niagara Central)
OWS/AWS Licensing Requirements
• BACnet OWS
– Requires purchasing the BACnet IP Client Driver for
the AX Supervisor
– The supervisor PC must be running AX 3.6 or later
with the bacnet and bacnetOws modules in the
modules folder
– The Supervisor PC must have both the bacnet feature
and the bacnetOws feature in its license
