Connect DH+ to BACnet MS/TP Manager

Improve your data integration process. A BACnet system can benefit you by providing savings in resources, installation costs, maintenance costs and energy savings. Connect a BACnet/IP MS/TP Manager with as many as 32 DH+ devices.





Control up to 32 BACnet MS/TP Devices from a Serial PLC5 or SLC PLC

You can now control a network of 32 BACnet/IP MS/TP Manager devices from a legacy Allen-Bradley serial PLC. It’s the perfect tool to save legacy PLCs from the scrap pile and control BACnet MS/TP devices directly from the serial port of PLC5s and SLCs. You can now extend the function of the legacy PLCs your already have.

How Do I Use the 460BMSDHM in My Application?

The mapping is straightforward for most applications. By connecting BACnet/IP MS/TP Manager the PLC data table values such as N7:200 and F9:1 directly mapped to BACnet analog and binary values. Consequently, no message instructions or ladder logic changes are required to monitor the PLC data on BACnet MS/TP Manager.

What our Customers are Saying

“I challenged a customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a Coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. He then said, "It’s worth twice the price!"”

Eric P. / Kendall Electric

“Everything seems to be working as we imagined. Thanks for the great response time. I did not see any way to save the configuration other than screen shots, but the configuration did not get lost in the update. Thanks again, and you were a pleasure to work with.”
