HMS Industrial Networks Anybus Modbus to BACnet gateway and Modbus to KNX gateway

Tuesday, 22 August, 2017 | Supplied by: Global Automation Asia-Pacific



HMS Industrial Networks has released two gateways connecting factory automation equipment to building automation systems: Anybus Modbus to KNX gateway and Anybus Modbus to BACnet gateway. These gateways enable industrial devices using Modbus to communicate on building systems using KNX or BACnet.

As BACnet and KNX are increasingly being used in buildings and infrastructure installations, there is an increasing demand for integrating industrial devices that communicate on Modbus into these networks. Therefore, HMS now presents Modbus-to-KNX and Modbus-to-BACnet gateways, which act as translators, allowing Modbus RTU, ASCII and TCP devices to show up as individual KNX or BACnet-compliant devices in a building automation network. This enables central KNX/BACnet control and supervision of Modbus devices such as drives, HVAC controllers and measuring equipment in building installations.

The gateways offer a very straightforward integration process. Modbus RTU slaves are connected to the serial port of the gateway, while Modbus TCP devices are connected to the Ethernet port. On the KNX or BACnet side, the gateways appear as simulated devices in the KNX or BACnet system.

Configuration is made in the Windows-based Anybus Configuration Manager (MAPS) tool. Commissioning and troubleshooting is also made using this tool.
