Sys600 Driver with PXC's MEC's and TEC's


#1

We are exploring the option of using the Sys600 driver to integrate an existing Siemens P1/P2 system over IP. We have tested the driver in demo mode and from what we can tell from the existing network architecture, it looks like we will need a separate network (& license) for every PXCM. Is this typically how the driver is used or are we missing something?


#2

The driver requires the network level object to make a single connection to a device and communicates with that device for information about any downstream devices (TEC’s, etc) on that particular network. If the network you are integrating to has multiple segregated networks which requires multiple head end devices, then yes, you will need to purchase as many connections (networks) as you devices you have for the driver to function.
