EST3 ECP Gateway || EST3 ECP Conversion
A great solution to the EST3 External Communications Protocol (ECP) driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from EST devices over RS-232 or RS-485 serial ports using the EST3 ECP protocol and provide that data on other protocol Networks like BACnet, Modbus, Lonworks, SNMP, Metasys N2  and others. In the EST application the FieldServer always emulates a Client. Gateway Type II and Type III formats are supported. FieldServer also offers a Remote Serial Port option by which a PC-based EST3 ECP client can remotely access a Gateway Type III panel via Ethernet (TCP/IP).

How to configure the FieldServer Gateway?

  • We will configure the Gateway for you based on your requirement and support you during commissioning of the Gateway, so you do not have to worry about configuring the FieldServer Gateway.
  • However, it is very helpful to know how to configure the devices. All the required tools and supporting product manuals with be provided completely free of cost with your purchase.
  • Configuration of the FieldServer is done using a '.csv' file. This file can be edited using any text editor (example Microsoft excel).
  • In this file we need to enter information for the Client and Server side interfaces of the FieldServer. This includes but is not limited to:

a.                     Node ids of the slave devices

b.                     MSTP addresses/device address of the slave devices

c.                     Baud rate, parity, stop bits for serial communication

d.                     Scan rates

  • And finally we need to create an internal mapping that would map each data value read on the client side to a data value on the server side.
  • For detailed information on configuration please get in touch with us and review the configuration manual on top of this page
