Commissioning Guide

Document Introduction
This document describes how to install the supported Bluetooth wireless adapters and commission your Controller Configuration Tool (CCT) laptop to communicate with the Wireless Commissioning Converter. Note: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Operating System (OS) does not support Bluetooth wireless technology. You cannot commission your CCT laptop for Bluetooth communication if it is running this OS. This document assumes that you have already installed the CCT software on your computer. To complete all of the procedures in this document, you must also have a Wireless Commissioning Converter connected to a powered-on field controller (refer to the Wireless Commissioning Converter Installation Instructions [Part No. 24-10108-2]). Note: The Wireless Commissioning Converter can be used in conjunction with the ZFR1800 Series Wireless Field Bus System; however, the wireless technologies of the Wireless Commissioning Converter and the ZFR1800 Series System do not directly interact. When the Wireless Commissioning Converter is connected on the hard-wired portion of a Field Controller (FC) Bus, it can be used to commission and communicate with any field controller, whether it is hardwired to the FC Bus or wirelessly enabled through the ZFR1800 Series Wireless Field Bus System. When the Wireless Commissioning Converter is connected directly to a wirelessly enabled field controller, it commissions and communicates with only that controller.

Wireless Commissioning Converter Laptop Commissioning Overview


To allow the Controller Configuration Tool (CCT) software to connect the Wireless Commissioning Converter to upload and download field controller applications, the laptop running CCT must have a Bluetooth wireless adapter installed and configured. Once the Bluetooth wireless adapter is installed and configured on the computer, you do not need to do it again until other software or hardware configurations change in time. You can perform the procedures to pair with and test connections to the Wireless Commissioning Converter whenever you need them. Figure 1 provides an overview of the procedure required to commission your laptop to allow communication between the Wireless Commissioning Converter and CCT.

Bluetooth Wireless Technology Modules and Adapters


We recommend that if your computer has internal Bluetooth wireless communication, you use that method to communicate with the Wireless Commissioning Converter. You can commission the following types of laptop computers to communicate with the Wireless Commissioning Converter: a laptop computer with an internal Bluetooth wireless module a laptop computer with a Bluetooth wireless Universal Serial Bus (USB) adapter

For the latest list of laptop computers with internal Bluetooth wireless modules and USB adapters, Johnson Controls employees should refer to the Computer Price List, which is available on the Johnson Controls Portal intranet site by Information Technology Acquisition Services (ITAS). Otherwise, please contact your Johnson Controls representative if you need assistance.

Key Laptop Configuration Guidelines


The instructions to enable Bluetooth wireless communication on your computer may vary depending on your computer and the type and brand of Bluetooth wireless adapter you are using; however, always observe the following guidelines when configuring your laptop to communicate with the Wireless Commissioning Converter: Disable the Discovery and Accessibility options for the Bluetooth wireless device to ensure the security of your computer.

Metasys CCT Bluetooth Technology Communication Commissioning Guide

If you are not sure about your laptops wireless capabilities, see Verifying Your Laptops Bluetooth Wireless State.

Does your laptop computer have the ability to use internal Bluetooth wireless communication? No

Yes

Install the Bluetooth wireless USB adapter. See Installing the Bluetooth Wireless USB Adapter.

Does your laptop have an internal Bluetooth wireless module installed? Yes No Order and install the correct module and drivers. See Verifying Your Laptops Bluetooth Wireless State.

Set up the computers Bluetooth wireless configuration. See Setting Up the Computers Bluetooth Wireless Configuration.

Pair with a Wireless Commissioning Converter and connect to its COM port. See Pairing with and Connecting to a Wireless Commissioning Converter.

The Wireless Commissioning Converter is ready to be used by the CCT.

Figure 1: Commissioning Overview

Metasys CCT Bluetooth Technology Communication Commissioning Guide

converter_commissioning

Verify the connection between the laptop and the Wireless Commissioning Converter. See Verifying the Connection between the Laptop and the Wireless Commissioning Converter.

Disable any refresh timers in the Bluetooth device connection manager software. This prevents the Bluetooth device from auto-discovering any other Bluetooth devices that may be in range. While the computer performs auto-discovery, you cannot establish a connection to the Wireless Commissioning Converter. We recommend that you change your computers Bluetooth Friendly Name or Computer Name to BLUETOOTH. This anonymous name prevents someone who discovers your computer from determining to whom the computer belongs. Note: If Discovery and Accessibility are disabled, the computer cannot be discovered by another device.

When installing a USB device, do not plug the device into the USB port until the software or instructions prompt you to do so. This is important for any USB device to ensure that the default Microsoft Windows software USB drivers are installed correctly. If your computer already has built-in Bluetooth wireless capability, we recommend that you do not use an external Bluetooth wireless adapter. Do not use Bluetooth wireless adapters from different vendors on the same computer as this may cause operational problems. Vendors may use the same core Bluetooth technology chipset, and multiple versions on your computer may interfere with each other and cause operational problems. If your laptop already has the Bluetooth wireless module pre-installed, verify the configuration. See Setting Up the Computers Bluetooth Wireless Configuration. If not, see Verifying Your Laptops Bluetooth Wireless State. Bluetooth wireless devices on the computer typically provide two virtual COM ports. Only the Client COM port is able to connect to the Wireless Commissioning Converter. The Server/Local COM port is not required and cannot be used to connect to the Wireless Commissioning Converter. Bluetooth wireless device installation software typically installs all of the Bluetooth services such as Local Area Network (LAN) services, Dial-up Networking, fax, and so on. These services are not required, but you can install them, if desired; however, only the Bluetooth Serial Port service is required by the Wireless Commissioning Converter. Note: Some Bluetooth services may cause interoperability issues with software on your computer. We recommend that you install the Bluetooth Serial Port service and not install services with which you are unfamiliar.

We recommend that you use the same Wireless Commissioning Converter with the same laptop computer. Otherwise, you must repeat the pairing/authentication process between the laptop and the Wireless Commissioning Converter. See Setting Up the Computers Bluetooth Wireless Configuration. Similarly, do not share Bluetooth wireless adapters among computers.

Metasys CCT Bluetooth Technology Communication Commissioning Guide

You can connect to the Wireless Commissioning Converter using the Bluetooth wireless adapter and a program such as HyperTerminal software; however, the Wireless Commissioning Converter recognizes that an incorrect application is attempting to pass data through it and automatically disconnects. Only Metasys system applications that provide Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) communications bus support can maintain a connection with the Wireless Commissioning Converter. Note: A wireless utility is provided with the CCT to verify the status of the wireless connection.

Typical connection times between the Wireless Commissioning Converter and the computer Bluetooth device are within 1 to 4 seconds. The range between the devices is guaranteed up to 30 ft (9 m); however, a line of sight connection may extend up to 200 ft (61 m). If you download the installation software from the USB adapter manufacturers Web site, be sure to download the latest version posted.

Japanese Considerations

Japanese law requires certification for all Bluetooth wireless devices. The Wireless Commissioning Converter is certified for use in Japan; however, to use the Wireless Commissioning Converter in Japan, your Bluetooth wireless adapter must also be certified. Purchase a Japanese certified Bluetooth wireless adapter in Japan for use with the Wireless Commissioning Converter.
European Considerations

European law requires that Bluetooth wireless devices comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive (2002/95/EC). The Wireless Commissioning Converter complies with this directive; however, to use the Wireless Commissioning Converter in Europe, you must use a RoHS-compliant Bluetooth adapter.
