Get your BACnet/IP Server Devices Connected to a Profinet IO Controller
The 460PSBC moves data between a network of up to 32 BACnet/IP Servers and a Profinet IO Controller. With the 460PSBC you are making a direct connection between Profinet IO data and your BACnet/IP Servers.
How Do you Map the Data?
BACnet/IP Server data will be mapped into 10 Profinet IO Slots. Each Slot will be assigned a typed of Int8, int16, int32, int64, Uint8, Uint16, Uint32, Uint64, float, double, binary8, binary16, binary32, or Short String. The Slot can consist of up to 128 bytes of data from your BACnet/IP device that your Profinet IO Controller will view as Profinet data. When writing from your Profinet IO Controller, Profinet IO data will be presented to your BACnet/IP Servers as BACnet/IP data.
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. Add 4 to a value, multiply by 4 and divide by 10 with ease.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460PSBC provides an option to access BACnet/IP data on your Profinet IO Controller. 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.
