Reading Registers via Bacnet

Customer is trying to read registers of a CM4 and a Micrologic Trip Breaker by using BacNet at his BMS. He claims that he has connected to the devices but only sees blank registers. Any idea what he is missing?

Re: Reading Registers via Bacnet

I don't know, if it is already available (documentation you can find on Shopping Kiosk). But I would suggest to ask your question in the "Light & Room Control" community, there someone should be able to give you an answer. I have such a device on my desk, but let be told, that you can't use it out of the box (not yet). When you like to use it for Modbus devices you will have to write some scripts to put in (which you also can find in the community mentioned before).

Re: Reading Registers via Bacnet

Hi Harry,

These devices normally only are supporting Modbus RTU / Modbus TCP. How can the customer communicate over BacNet to them without using a gateway? I think, that this will be impossible. There is a new gateway from Schneider called spaceLYnk witch should support this function, but I don't have any experience with it.

Re: Reading Registers via Bacnet

Hi Bojan,

This looks good!

Does it also support NSX?

Re: Reading Registers via Bacnet

Hi Daniel,

I checked my ProtoNode FPC-N34-0504, and it supports only the following devices:

5013

Maybe you should contact FieldServer Customer Support ( support@fieldserver.com ) and ask if some other gateway versions support NSX.

Best Regards,

Bojan

Re: Reading Registers via Bacnet

As asked previously, can you provide any further info on spaceLYnk and when/where it might be commercially available?
