XN2: Johnson Controls N2 Master Protocol Driver v10.0

XN2: Johnson Controls N2 Master Protocol Driver

General Information:

The XN2 allows you to connect N2 devices in a Metasys network through a low speed serial connection using the N2 System protocol from Johnson Controls.

The N2 System protocol is a general interface for accessing data that resides in devices on a N2 network. Each device on the N2 can be thought of as a data base manager. The key to referencing a specific N2 device's data base is the device's N2 address. The data under the management of a particular N2 device can further be subdivided into groupings called regions. Each region is made up of one or more records, each record within a region having the same structure.

For details about the structure of each supported object, please refer to the 'N2 System Protocol Spec.pdf' document from Johnson Controls.

In order to get a first response from your device, it might be necessary that you send a 'Identify Device Type' command followed by a 'Poll Without/ With Ack Message' command prior to any other reading or writting commands.

The licenses of all our drivers are unlimited in terms of the number of machines where they can be used, the number of I/O that can read or written, and the number of components that can be included in each application.

After purchasing a license, the owner can use the driver and all its components to assemble and distribute as many applications to as many users as needed.

The license owner retains full control of his applications by deciding himself what target machines can they be run at. For this, each driver is provided with two runtime license management tools: GetPCId.exe and MakeLic.exe.
