|Overview Anybus gateways|
|Anybus HMS . website|
The Anybus BACnet to Modbus gateway allows Modbus devices to communicate with a BACnet network. The gateway acts as a translator between the two networks so that Modbus RTU, ASCII or TCP devices become visible on the BACnet / IP network. This allows central control and supervision of the Modbus devices in a building.
BACnet is a data communication protocol that is mainly used in the building automation and HVAC industry (Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning). The most common serial version is called BACnet MS/TP while the dominant Ethernet version is BACnet/IP. Modbus remains a popular protocol. It is commonly used on mechanical equipment: - Boiler controls - Variable speed drives - Metering applications
Modbus is easy to use, but not BACnet compliant. This is where a gateway between Modbus and BACnet comes in handy!
How does it work:
Modbus RTU and Modbus ASCII networks are connected to the serial port of the gateway while Modbus TCP and BACnet/IP networks are connected to the Ethernet port. You need to create a profile for each Modbus device and upload it to the gateway.
