A McQuay MicroTech 2000 water source heat pump controller may be addressed as a Level 3 device under an MCG (MicroTech Communications Gateway). This can be confusing when addressing WSHP1 blocks in a SIM-MTECH.

McQuay MCG (MicroTech Communications Gateway)
McQuay MicroTech 2000 water source heat pump controllers
The MCG needs to use an Echelon communications protocol with the water source heat pump (WSHP)controllers, which uses level 2 internally, and puts the WSHP controllers at LEVEL 3
The way to address the WSHP blocks under the MCG is HBYTE = 1, LBYTE = x, where x is the address of the controller. Unlike earlier McQuay controllers where the unit address is set by rotary hexadecimal switches, the addresses of the MicroTech 2000 heat pump controllers are set in software by the McQuay technician who commissions their network.
