BASgatewayLX is the "Go-To" Solution for Converting Modbus to BACnet

BASgatewayLXOur BASgatewayLX Modbus to BACnet gateway continues to win new fans thanks to our extensive Modbus device profiles library. Most gateway manufacturers require the user to make their own device profiles on a point-by-point basis, which can take hours of development time when integrating a Modbus device into a BACnet inter-network. Our BASgatewayLX is supported by a Device Profiles library for more than 100 popular product models. And if your product model isn't in the library, our technical support team will create that profile for you.

One customer just emailed us after a successful installation, saying, "These gateways will continue to be our "go to" when we need to convert Modbus to Bacnet. They have proven to be a good product, and your support is exceptional, we really appreciate it!"

Using our existing device profiles means that you don’t have to develop the Modbus point list, so you don't have to be concerned about double wide reads and writes and high/low reads vs. low/high. We take care of all of that, allowing you to just download the profile into the BASgatewayLX and check off only the registers that need to be scanned.

Up to 30 Modbus devices - the same type or different - can be scanned by each BASgatewayLX using a technique call virtual routing. Each connected Modbus device appears as a virtual BACnet device. Up to 1,000 registers can be marked for scanning. It is simple and effective.

For the systems integrators who want the capability to make their own profiles or modify profiles in the field, we have published an application note that defines the data format we use when developing device profiles.
