Does the Trend IP Driver fully support Trend Time Zones?
The Trend IP Driver fully supports the read & write of Trend Time Zones.
Trend Time Zone imports are read only.
Trend Time Zone exports allow a Niagara 4 schedule to be overlaid onto a Trend Time Zone and fully control it.
NOTE: Trend Time Zones are a licensed feature on top of LANs & Points.
Does the Trend IP Driver Support Secure VCNC’s?
The Trend IP Driver does not currently support Secure VCNC's.
If your IQ4 only has a secure VCNC you will need to reconfigure it. Login into the IQ4's web server and navigate to Modules > VCNC and change the security mode from Secure to None.
Support for Secure VCNC's is on our development road map for a future release of the driver.
Does the Trend IP Driver have a demo mode?
The driver has a two-hour demo mode built in.
Generate a PIN code via the AX Property Sheet & enter the PIN Code.
The driver will then run for two hours in a feature limited mode.
Once expired, the station can be started and the demo mode re-activated.
We encourage you to test the driver meets your requirements before purchasing a permanent license.
Does the Trend IP Driver include Software Maintenance?
The Trend driver includes a software maintenance feature. Every new purchase of the driver will support the current release of Niagara 4 and the next release of Niagara 4, any subsequent upgrade will require a software maintenance license to be applied.
As an example the current release of Niagara 4 is N4.10, a new driver purchase will cover you for N4.10 and an upgrade to N4.11 (also any previous release of the software - note we only support the current release and previous release with driver updates). Any further upgrades, for example to N4.12 or above, will require a software maintenance to be applied. The software maintenance would then cover you for the now current release and the next release of the software. You can upgrade from any previous release with a single software maintenance purchase.
If you purchased a historic release of the driver, then a software maintenance license will be required for any upgrade including and above Niagara 4.9.

NOTE: Trend driver SMA does not include or cover Niagara 4 SMA packs.
What versions of Niagara 4 does the Trend IP Driver support?

Support for Niagara AX has now been dropped.

The driver full supports the following ranges of controllers -
*Note: IQL connections are supported but require a specific configuration. Please contact technical support for further information.
Traditional current loop controllers should be connected via a VCNC (EINC / IQ4NC etc). However, on a current loop only installation we can provide an IP > Serial converter that will allow a serial supervisor port (RS232) to be used as a VCNC connection to the connected local LAN.
