While the JACE has the ability to route MS/TP traffic over one of its serial ports, handling the overhead of the BACnet MS/TP token passing protocol burdens the JACE's CPU. And although the JACE has the ability to communicate Modbus RTU over one of its serial ports, Modbus points cannot be discovered like BACnet points requiring manual configuration of each Modbus register. Our Gateways and Routers offload MS/TP and Modbus traffic, reducing CPU usage.
Using BACnet's open protocol and the open control language provided by Sedona Framework, along with the SAE, the BAScontrol Series becomes a truly open controller and feels very much like programming a Niagara device.
We offer two solutions for remote monitoring - one a cloud-based VPN solution and the other a client/server VPN solution that makes a direct connection over the Internet. Both solutions provide simple, secure, remote access for system integrators to check in and view what is happening at job sites thereby saving time and resources from not having to send technicians to job sites for every customer problem that occurs.
