Tip

Refer to the “Adding a single asset” section in Adding Assets for steps to manually add assets with a BACnet/IP or Modbus TCP monitoring profile.

Managing BACnet/IP definitions

Adding a BACnet/IP definition

  1. Go to Settings → BACnet/IP Definitions.
  2. Click Add. Alternatively, if you have no BACnet/IP definitions, click Add new BACnet/IP definition.
  3. Enter a Name and Asset Type for the definition, and click Save.

A success message will appear, and the Overview page of the new BACnet/IP definition will be displayed. Proceed to add sensor definitions.

Adding a numeric sensor definition

Hyperview currently only supports numeric sensor definitions for BACnet/IP.

  1. While editing or adding the BACnet/IP definition, click the Numeric Sensors tab.
  2. Click Add. Alternatively, if there are no existing sensor definitions, click Add Numeric Sensor.
  3. Provide values for Object Instance, Type, Sensor Type, Sensor Name, Sensor Unit, and Multiplier. Note that the Sensor Name and Sensor Unit fields will only appear once you have selected a Sensor Type.
  4. Click Save.

A success message will appear, and the numeric sensor definition will be listed in the grid. Repeat the steps to add additional sensor definitions as appropriate.

Updating a BACnet/IP definition

  1. Go to Settings → BACnet/IP Definitions → Edit.
  2. Update values from the Overview or Numeric Sensors tab as required, and save your changes.

A success message will appear for each change, and the current page will reload to reflect the change.
