I/A Series Integration to BACnet PTP protocol

Issue

I/A Series Integration to BACnet PTP protocol

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

I/A Series R2

I/A Series G3

Cause

Supported I/A Series BACnet integrations are only BACnet Ethernet, BACnet IP and BACnet MS/TP protocols. There is no driver for integration to BACnet PTP devices.

Resolution

Schneider Electric solution:

  • Using the TAC Xenta 913 LonWorks Gateway - The Xenta 913 is able to connect to a BACnet PTP half router. Data can be mapped to LonWorks or BACnet IP which are standard protocols in I/A Series. Knowledge of the Xenta 913 and TAC XBuilder is required to configure the Xenta 913.

Third party solution:

  • Use a 3rd party BACnet PTP to BACnet IP, BACnet Ethernet or LonWorks gateway. A company which has the gateways for this is Field Server Technologies. See there BACnet FieldServer Drivers here.
