With the project check function, several project checks can be performed with the help of a wizard. The objective is to find possible discrepancies in the project design, which may not be readily apparent. There are four different levels which are checked in a project.
How to invoke it?
Via the project menu bar 'Diagnostics' > Project check
Checks the Addresses of the devices against the lines/areas and finds devices that are not linked to a Group Address (an "orphan" device in an installation, i.e. those that have no communication partner).
Group Address Check
- Checks whether Group Addresses are used (linked with at least one Group Object).
- Checks whether extended Group Addresses are linked to plug-in devices.
Checks whether the power consumption matches the planned power supply as well as the number of chokes, couplers and repeaters.
- If the Power Consumption device property is available on the devices, it is used; otherwise an average of 10mA is used
- If the Current device property is available on the power supplies, it is used; otherwise an average of 320mA is used
- If more than 63 devices are stored in a TP line (main line/ area line/ line), a warning is issued (Please check your topology with respect to existing repeaters).
- If more than 63 devices are stored in a TP main line/area line and there is a topological maximum configuration, then an error message is issued.
Product Information Check
In some cases, an update of a KNX product entry is available, containing improvements or bug corrections for the same product version. With the help of this check, a list which shows all such devices can be printed out. The list also contains the "fingerprints" of the devices (these can be used by the manufacturers to distinguish between several variations of a device even when the version is the same).
All checks can be disabled globally and the individual steps of the checks can be disabled in the respective tab.
