Product Description

Deliver Data from your BACnet MS/TP Slave Devices to an ASCII Based System or Controller
The 460BMA moves data between up to 32 BACnet MS/TP devices and Serial ASCII. It’s a great tool to implement BACnet MS/TP devices into your PC or embedded applications that support raw ASCII data.

How Does it Work?
Up to 128 BACnet/IP Objects can be mapped to and from your BACnet MS/TP Responder devices. The data segments can be converted to ASCII and concatenated into a string we deliver to your ASCII controller or logger. If you need to command the BACnet MS/TP devices, an incoming ASCII string can be parsed and each segment can be directed to user defined IO data location.

Need to scale your data or manipulate it with other math functions? The 460BMA allows you to add scaling to any data, apply simple math operations, add alarming and control the request speeds of your Responder devices.

Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460BMA provides an option to manage BACnet MS/TP devices with an ASCII based controller. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering solutions like ours, there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.

When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest answers and recommendations even if that means recommending someone else’s solution. When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and that doesn’t require a ticket or 24 hour wait. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a smaller company because, that means, you mean more to us.
