Application scenario:

1) A site has two BACnet MSTP trunks with 31 VAV controllers on each and the building owner as mandated that all the VAV should be remotely monitored over the Building management system (BMS) installed. However the BMS only supports BACnet IP so how do we get the BMS to read/write data to/from the VAVs ?

Answer) This is a typical scenario where you can apply our FS-BACnet router. The router has 2xRS485 ports. Thus you can connect both the BACnet MSTP trunks (having 31 VAVs each) to respective ports of the router.

The only selection you have to do is the baud rate setting that you would like to you.

The BACnet router has an Ethernet port through which it can be connected to the site's local area network using a switch or hub. It should be assigned a suitable IP address based on the local area network set up.

Now power it up and we are good to go. The building management system can discover and access all the VAV boxes.

The baud rate setting and IP address settings can be done using the on board web utility on the router.
