This will help during installation to see if total number of devices can cause communication issues due to too much traffic on the two-wire interface.

Important information

Interoperability with TFIX-1/2/3 and FCDC-1/2

See FCDC-3_-_Backwards_compatibility for more information. In particular, in clusters with mix of FCDC1/2 and FCDC3, one FCDC3 must be set as "CCo".
