How is a ADDMX function setup to communicate to a BMXNOM0200 in a M580 Remote drop ?

For the M580 drops, you will have to use the ADDMX with the WRITE_CMD_MX

The ADDMX function is used to convert a character string respecting the Unity Pro device address syntax into an array of integers in order to manage (e)X80 serial link modules in an Ethernet I/O drop.
The ADDMX function can be used directly by the following communication functions in an M580 system:
READ_STS_MX
WRITE_CMD_MX
READ_PARAM_MX
RESTORE_PARAM_MX
SAVE_PARAM_MX
WRITE_PARAM_MX
INPUT_CHAR
PRINT_CHAR
READ_VAR
WRITE_VAR
INPUT_BYTE
DATA_EXCH
SEND_EMAIL

To address a BMX CRA 312 •0 or BME CRA 312 •0, or module directly with its IP address, the IN parameter takes one of the 2 following forms:
‘r0.s0.ch0{ip.ip.ip.ip}’
‘r0.s0.ch0{ip.ip.ip.ip}TCP.MBS’
To address a Modbus server or slave using Modbus protocol, the IN parameter takes one of the 2 following forms:
‘r0.s0.ch0{ip.ip.ip.ip}TCP.MBS\\r1.s1.ch1.d’
‘r0.s0.ch0{ip.ip.ip.ip}TCP.MBS\\r1.s1.ch1.d.MBS’


Example BMX NOM in drop #4, Rack0, Slot8, Channel 1, slave address 15 --  ADDMX('0.0.3{192.168.100.31}\\0.8.1.15')
