Bus communication


Your computer is connected with the connected controller and you want to see the messages on the bus of the installation.

You have opened the Diagnostics page and the Bus communication screen is selected in the navigation bar.

On the Bus communication screen you see the following components:

  1. the Live Tracing tab
    via this tab you can see the live messages on the bus
  2. the History Log tab
    via this tab you can see the history of logged bus messages
  3. the Search field
    via the search function you can find specific messages in the message list
  4. the message list
    here you can see the live messages (if the Live Tracing tab is selected) or the logged messages (if the History Log tab is selected)

The following automated messages are not displayed:

  • time stamps
  • temperature measurements
  • analogue sensor measurements
  • energy measurements

For example, wind measurements of sun blinds are not logged.
If a measurement starts an action (e.g. the wind picks up causing the sunblinds to be raised), that action is logged.
