January 2013 - We're looking forward to seeing you at the AHR Expo January 28-30 in Dallas, Texas. Be sure to visit booth 926 to see our latest products for the building automation industry. Can't wait? Click here to get a sneak peek of our booth.
At the AHR Expo, you'll see our newest BASautomation products including the BASrouterLX High-Performance Router which has MS/TP Troubleshooting Capability. The BASrouterLX is a high-performance BACnet router providing stand-alone routing between BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP. Besides its high-speed processor, it supports slave proxy with optional auto-discovery of MS/TP slaves, MS/TP frame capture and storage for use with Wireshark®. It supports foreign device registration and is a BACnet/IP Broadcast Management Device where up to 50 BBMD entries can be made to its Broadcast Distribution Table.
We'll also show you how to connect Modbus Networks to BACnet/IP with the BASgatewayLX. The BASgatewayLX connects BACnet/IP Ethernet to non-BACnet compliant networks such as Modbus Serial or Modbus TCP. Using the concept of virtual routing, up to 30 Modbus devices appear as individual BACnet devices. Using web pages and a resident database of common Modbus device profiles, Modbus registers can be mapped to BACnet objects. Contemporary Controls provides a library of Modbus device profiles on the BASgateway. Additional custom profiles can be uploaded.
The AHR Expo, which is expecting record-breaking attendance again, is an opportunity to meet existing and new customers. We always love hearing from you, so be sure to stop by booth 926 to say hello. We'll see you at the show.
