Connect Modbus TCP/IP Servers to a BACnet MS/TP Controller
The 460MCBMS moves data between up to 32 Modbus TCP/IP Devices and a BACnet MS/TP Building Automation System (BAS). It’s a perfect tool to tie Modbus power meters, boilers, chillers and other devices into your BACnet MS/TP Building Automation System.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with a 5 year warranty.
How Do I use the 460MCBMS in My Application?
For Most applications the mapping is very straight forward. Modbus Register data is mapped to BACnet Analog objects and Modbus Coil data is mapped to Binary objects on BACnet. The only additional piece required for BACnet is adding meta data which is nothing more than an ASCII description of each object. No other deep understanding of either protocol is required to configure the gateway.
It really is that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other? No problem. Each data mapping you apply can be modified with up to 3 mathematic functions. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460MCBMS provides an option to access Modbus TCP/IP Server devices on your BACnet MS/TP Master. 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.
