BACnet object viewing

BACnet object viewing

BACnet object viewing


I've ran into an issue with a Daikin series of Bacnet IP Controller that is a using an object, Multistate input, with states 1-512. Unfortunately the object viewer that is proprietary to my company is currently incompatible with reading this number of states.

It appears that similarly several other object viewers I've looked into have the same issue, such as BOSS explorer and cimetrics BACnet explorer.

Has anyone come across multi-state values that have this many states and if so what viewer/explorer/scanner are you using to see these values?

RE: BACnet object viewing


OK, it has been awhile since I looked at BacNet and I could be confused.
A multi state input can have X states but only one state at a time, right?
The "present value" will contain the state.

So I am confused about what you are needing.
