EPICS Wizard:
EPICS-WIZARD ver. 2.2.4
programmed by TWE-Elektronik

General
The program creates EPICS-files of BACnet devices which are needed to perform conformity tests. The input of the data is done on basis of input dialogs. This program is a tool to reduce the efforts needed to create EPICS-files. The correctness of the input values is not checked.

Installation of the program by unzipping the file ’EPICSWiz.zip’ in a new folder. The subfolders will be generated automatically.

Start the program by opening the file „wizard.exe".

The main routines of the program are „create a new EPICS file" and „open EPICS file". These can be started by activating the buttons in the main window of the program.

File extension To work with the EPICS-Wizard the following file extensions are defined:
„.tpi" : EPICS-file
„.dev": Data of the objects of the device which are displayed in the section "list of objects of the test device" will be stored in these files. Extensive data can be stored intermediate to avoid the loss of data when system or program crashes. Data of similar devices can be copied into the new device to reduce the time needed for EPICS generation.

Download for EPICS Wizard

* There are some known issues with the EPICS file created from the EPICS Wizard. You will need to edit the EPICS file created in order to change the output to match the 135.1 specification and to allow it to load into the latest version of VTS.

MBS BACnet OPC-Server
The MBS BACnet OPC-Server allows monitoring of BACnet networks. Each device is displayed in an explorer-like tree and all properties are shown in a separate window. The BACnet OPC-Server supports automatic polling as well as writing to properties, COV and event handling. Creation of EDE-files (Engineering Data Exchange) is supported, too.
