Connect Your Modbus TCP Client to Your Building Management System

The 460MSBS moves data between a Modbus TCP/IP Client and a BACnet/IP Building Automation System (BAS). It’s a perfect way to implement a legacy or new cost effective Modbus TCP/IP controller into your BACnet/IP architecture.

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 460MSBS 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 in 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’s really 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.

Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?

The 460MSBS provides an option to access Modbus TCP/IP Client data in your BACnet/IP Client. 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. Try the RTA difference today!

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.”
