Automation Server Classic support for hosting MPX or RPC
EcoStruxure Building Operation
- Building Operation Automation Server Classic, AS-P, AS-B
- Building Operation SmartX MPX, MPC, MPV field controller
- Building Operation SmartX RPC field controller
The original Automation Server (Classic) can be set up to fully host (host server) and configure both MPX and RPC devices, but the Architectural Guidelines do not specify how many devices can be fully hosted.
Full hosting of MPX, RPC is only supported and tested on AS-P, AS-B and Enterprise Server. This is confirmed in the MPX and RPC Specification Sheet.
"MP-C/MP-V/RPC can either be used as a standalone BACnet/IP field controller or as part of an EcoStruxure BMS with a SmartX AS-P or AS-B server or an Enterprise Server as the parent server."
MPX, RPC can be simply be BACnet hosted on an Automation Server Classic, but the use as parent or host server is not supported or tested.
