FAQ

Why is this product exciting?
Brivis is a major HVAC manufacturer in Australia whose products are heavily utilised in Victoria and other southern states.  Integration of their Networker product line allows for a wider range of HVAC solutions for Australian Control4 consumers and dealers.

 

Which Rinnai/Brivis systems is the N-BW2 Networker Bridge compatible with?
The N-BW2 is compatible with Brivis NC-3, NC-6, NC-7 Wired Networker Controllers. Please contact Brivis for all installation and compatibility queries on the N-BW2 Networker Bridge.

Special notes for NC-3 based systems

Rinnai have advised that for the older NC-3 based systems, Brivis units are unable to broadcast the measured zone temperature to the N-BW2.  As such, an undefined value of "999" is transmitted by the N-BW2 that will display as a continual zone temperature of "99.9" in Control4.

Special notes for NC-6 based systems

Rinnai have advised that for NC-6 based systems that have been configured for STSP (Single Temperature Set Point) operation, Brivis units will not broadcast the measured zone temperature to the N-BW2.  As such, an undefined value of "999" is transmitted by the N-BW2 that will display as a continual zone temperature of "99.9" in Control4.

By having a Brivis installer configure the NC-6 system for MTSP (Multi Temperature Set Point) operation will enable the measured temperature to be broadcast to the N-BW2, and in turn Control4.

Rinnai have advised that future NC-6 firmware modification will broadcast these measured zone temperatures when in STSP operation.

 

Where can I purchase the N-BW2 Networker Bridge?
The N-BW2 can only be purchased and installed by authorised Brivis dealers.  Please contact a Brivis HVAC installer to arrange this.

 

Can I control multiple zones with this solution?
Yes, you can control up to 4 zones using the N-BW2 networker bridge.

 

Can I schedule the HVAC system using this driver?
Yes the driver has built in presets and scheduling.  This scheduling is built into the driver and will override the scheduling in the Brivis Networker system.

 

Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above?
This driver requires functionality that is only available in OS 2.7.  As such this driver will not work in earlier versions of Control4 OS.
