Version 1.0

The C-Bus Connectivity Kit is the solution for all Niagara framework users looking to integrate the Honeywell Excel controllers with other standard building automation protocols. The Excel IRC can be made available via the Excel 5000 controllers (e.g. XL500, XL100 and XL80) by generating remote points in these controllers. The Niagara driver links to the C-Bus via the Intelligent External Converter (IEC). This converter is a microprocessor based device used for the physical connection to the C-Bus. There are serial and TCP/IP versions of the IEC, both supported by the same Niagara driver version. C-Bus Connectivity Kit driver is available for both platforms, NiagaraAX and Niagara4.
