Included Drivers
Drivers included:
We are actively seeking to expand our list of compatible drivers. Drivers normally take 4-6 weeks to write, depending on current work load. If you would like to discuss having a driver written for your company's hardware, or call 317-536-4047.
Andover Controls
The Andover Controls driver (Comport version) supports the Andover AC256/AC8 and the Infinity/Continuum.

Features:

  • Greatly enhanced speed
  • Full graphic display updates in about 4 seconds at 9600 baud (Infinity/Continuum)
  • Multiple users can access the same panel simultaneously
  • Supports all of the standard features of Catalyst Pro

Requires an Andover AC256/AC8/Infinity/Continuum controller with an available comport and terminal mode support. The command line version of the Infinity/Continuum is not required.

BACnet
The BACnet driver communicates using the BACnet/IP and PTP protocols.

The BACnet driver supports:

  • Displaying and changing of control point values
  • Importing of control point names and addresses directly from the BACnet network
  • Native schedule object editing (beta)
  • Native trend object reading and storage (beta)
  • Native alarm reception and user acknowledgment (beta)

An introduction to the new BACnet features in v1.80 is available here.

LonWorks
The LonWorks driver uses the Echelon OpenLDV Installer available free of charge at:

http://www.echelon.com/products/development/openldv/default.htm

The Echelon PCCx, PCLTAxx or SLTAx interfaces are currently supported. Catalyst Pro will automatically discover all devices on an existing network and import the points from each device. Please note that Catalyst Pro is not a network setup tool. It will communicate with devices that have not been configured with a network tool (for example, a stand-alone Trane panel) but it does not provide a way to make network variable connections between devices.

There are no royalties, tickets or per-point charges when using this driver.

The LonWorks driver supports:

  • Displaying and changing of control point values
  • Importing of control point names and addresses directly from the LonWorks network
  • Catalyst Pro based alarming. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and generates user-specified alarm messages
  • Catalyst Pro based trending. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records historical data
  • Catalyst Pro based runtime accumulation. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records runtime hours
OPC
The OPC Server driver allows Catalyst Pro to connect to any standard OPC server. Using this driver allows placing control points from virtually any device on a Catalyst Pro graphic display. Please note that you must have an OPC server program for a given device already installed.

The OPC driver supports:

  • Displaying and changing of control point values
  • Importing of control point names and addresses directly from the OPC server
  • Catalyst Pro based alarming. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and generates user-specified alarm messages
  • Catalyst Pro based trending. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records historical data
  • Catalyst Pro based runtime accumulation. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records runtime hours
ModBus
The ModBus driver allows placing points from any compatible RS-232/RS-485 ModBus slave device using the RTU or ASCII protocol on Catalyst Pro graphic displays. Reading/writing of outputs, reading of inputs and reading/writing of Holding registers and Input registers are supported.

The ModBus driver supports:

  • Displaying and changing of control point values
  • Catalyst Pro based alarming. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and generates user-specified alarm messages
  • Catalyst Pro based trending. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records historical data
  • Catalyst Pro based runtime accumulation. Catalyst Pro monitors point values and records runtime hours
Intelligent Lighting Controls
The Intelligent Lighting Controls (Reliant Relay Co.) driver supports the Quanta Elite panels using the standard ILC protocol or the Master/Slave protocol over an RS-232 or RS-485 connection.

All standard Catalyst Pro features are supported. Trending is supported by the driver itself. The driver will collect historical data at 15 minute intervals when it is left running and connected to the panels.
