This driver supports the A.O. Smith Advanced Internal Network (AIN) slave protocol. Some notes of interest are:
-Supports both comercial and residential A.O. Smith gas and electric products.
-A range of master parameters in one block may be read or written by configuring a single service object.
– May be connected along with ohter modules on the network including local and remote displays and other interface devices.

Service Object Settings
The AIN slave driver uses service objects to define the parameter values to capture from the master (“reading”) and to modify (“writing”). Each device object can access a renge of parameters located in one block on the master device. When reading is enabled, the driver will compare values into the database. When writing is enabled, the driver will generate a write command to the master when data values changes occur in database locations encompassed by a service object.
This 32-character (max) field is strictly for user reference: it is not used at any time by the driver
Indicates the nlock number (0…29) in wich the desired parameters are located.
Defines the starting parameter number (0…255) for a range of parameters associated with this service object.
Number of Parameters
Defines the number of parameters (1…255) associated with this service object.
Defines the database address where the first parameter of this device object will be mapped. The configuration studio will not allow entry of starting address that will cause, the service object to run past the end of the database. The highest calid database address, therefore, depends on the numer of parameters to be accessed.
Fixed at 16-Bit Unsigned
The amount that associated network values are scaled by prior being stored into the databaseor after being retrieved from the database. Upon retrieval from the database, raw data is multiplied by the multiplier to produce a network (to be sent on this device). Similarly, network values (read from the device) are devided by the multiplier before being stored into the database.
Check to enable reading (capturing the values of parameters from a broadcast). All read-enabled service objects are used to compare block and parameter number for each master broadcast.
Check to enable writing: when values encompasses by this service object change in the internal database these changes will be written to the master on the next poll request.
