API overview and usage

This document explain how to use the RP-C Web Service API. It provides a general tutorial for users who want to consume the RP-C Web Service API and obtain BACnet objects and properties from the RP-C.

Please note that you need to configure the Web API feature on RP-C to enable the API. Contact the Schneider Electric Product Support Services (PSS) team for more information.

How it works

Using the Web Service API, a Schneider Electric partner can remotely access BACnet objects and properties on the RP-C. RP-C will return a list of object ids available and a list of property ids for a specific object.

In case of a single RP-C, a 3rd party client application can access BACnet objects and properties if the user credential is valid. The user will be authenticated based on User DB in RP-C.

In case of an EcoStructure System with multiple RP-Cs, users can be authenticated based on centralized User DB on the RP Controller, AS-P or Enterprise Server by configuring Web Service Settings.
