How to import external temperature sensors via BMS to DCO?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Winnie Chau on 2018-07-26


Dear team,

I have a DCIM project which requires us to import temperature sensor readings from a BMS to DCO via Bacnet IP. The customers want the temperature readings for better 3D temp simulation in DCO.

Can anyone suggest to me what I should do? Thanks

Hi Winnie,

We had done many integrations where we polled Honeywell BMS sensors for T/h to work with DCE and then port to DCO. It's easy to do you just need to tell the multivendor team to create DDF with T/H sensors set to view in DCO.

You can see a tips section which I created for all.

Dear Vineet,

Thanks for pointing me to this URL which long time ago I visited before. Aha it is exactly targeting my problem now. Thanks so much.

During this project, I also uncover some concern, e.g. UPS device must be interpreted as individual Modbus TCP Slave devices to allow correct device association for DCO Capacity to function correctly.

Besides UPS, which equipment must be recognized as individual Modbus TCP Slave device in DCE for DCO Capacity to work correctly?

Really relieved to know that at least CRAC is not required. But it will be relieved if we can have the full overview. I am getting more and more queries on BMS integration, some after tenders are awarded.

 

Honeywell T/H sensors mounted on Racks

  1. CRAC units and TRIP panel breakers
  2. VESDA Panels
  3. Fire Alarm Panel
  4. SMOKE Sensors
  5. Access Control system 
  6. PA system

By the way, Vineet K. Sarin I want you to thank you so much so much for the tips of changing the device type to Cooling Device in DDF. Finally able to get the Temp sensor readings in DCO 😀
