PC Requirements
  • Microsoft® Windows 7 (64-bit and 32-bit), Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit), Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (32-bit), Windows Vista with SP1 (32-bit), or Windows XP with SP3 (32-bit).
Minimum Hardware
  • 500 MHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 2 GB available disk space, 1024 MB page file, DVD-ROM drive, 1024 x 768 or higher-resolution display with at least 256 colors, mouse or compatible pointing device, and OpenLNS or IP network interface.
Recommended Configuration
  • Minimum 2 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, and 2048 MB page file.
Compatible LNS Network Interfaces
  • OpenLNS CT is compatible with IP-852 and all OpenLDV 4.0-compatible network interfaces. OpenLDV 4.0 drivers are included for the i.LON 100, i.LON 600, and SmartServer remote network interfaces (RNIs); and for PCC-10, PCLTA-20, PCLTA-21, U10, and U20 local network interfaces. The OpenLDV 4.0 driver is compatible with the Echelon SLTA-10 Serial LonTalk Adapter, but requires separate installation of an SLTA driver. The PCC-10, PLCLTA-20, PCLTA-21, and SLTA-10 drivers are only compatible with 32-bit versions of Windows; all other included drivers are compatible with all supported versions of 64-bit and 32-bit Windows.
Compatible IP Network Interfaces

Maximum Network Limits

The following maximum limits apply per network defined in OpenLNS CT:

  • Active OpenLNS CT remote clients: 5.
  • Application Device Types: 32,385. Channels: 1000.
  • Devices: 32,385 (2 addresses required per router and network service device). Domains: 1 per network.
  • Network variable selectors: 12,288 bound selectors (ISO/IEC 14908-1 protocol limit)—the OpenLNS Server reuses network variable selectors and therefore the number of network variable connections is not limited by this protocol limit.
  • Routers: 1000

Maximum Limits per OpenLNS Commissioning Tool

  • Address table entries: 32,768.
  • Alias table entries: 1024.
  • Simultaneous outgoing transactions: 250 (when using a Layer 2 network interface or an IP-852 interface); 15 (when using a SmartServer or i.LON 600); 1 (all other interfaces).
  • Simultaneous incoming transactions: 250 (when using a Layer 2 network interface or an IP-852 interface); 16 (all other interfaces).
