Novara CP in VA

Can it be done?

More to the point though, can I connect a CP1008 to a NI-700 (master) for that steak and chips experience?

    Novara Keypads in VA

    Hi Benoki,
    You would not find the answer in the manual so don't feel bad. VisualArchitect only supports NetLinx masters and NetLinx / AxLink devices so the CP-1008 is not supported. The SP-08 will be this year as it is an AxLink device. You should use Novara DCS software to configure and program the CP-1008. Please let us know if you think that VisualArchitect would be valuable as a configuration tool for Novara systems.
    Kindest Regards,

    Hi Doug

    Thanks for the info. I ended up using the DCS1000 software which worked quite well. It would be great if in the future the Novara CP could be configured via VA as an attached RS-232 device to a NI controller. The new SP version of the Novara looks great but lacks the relay/ir functionality of the CP unit which is definately handy in certain situations.

    Many thanks

    Though in saying that I haven't exactly gone into the depths of code based programming, so it may in fact be possible outside of the GUI applications!
