Connect BACnet MS/TP Slaves to an EtherNet/IP Scanner Device
The 460ESBM moves data between a network of up to 32 BACnet MS/TP devices and an EtherNet/IP Scanner. It’s the perfect tool to tie your BACnet MS/TP devices to your EtherNet/IP system.
How Do I Use the 460ESBM in My Application?
Up to 480 bytes of data can be mapped in each direction between the protocols. That means you can report up to 480 bytes of data between 1-32 BACnet MS/TP devices and you can also write up to 480 bytes of data to 1-32 BACnet MS/TP devices.
It’s really that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other? No problem. In each data mapping you can apply up to 3 mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 2 and divide by 10 with ease.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460ESBM provides an option to connect BACnet MS/TP devices to your EtherNet/IP system. While there are certainly a number of other companies offering stand alone gateways, 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 support 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 a lot more to us.
