Anybus Gateway makes Modbus devices talk BACnet.

October 10, 2014

With Anybus BACnet to Modbus Gateway, it is possible to connect Modbus devices to BACnet network. Gateway handles conversion between Modbus and BACnet/IP and makes each connected Modbus device appear as BACnet compliant device. Two ports are available on gateway to connect to serial Modbus (RTU and ASCII) and Ethernet (BACnet/IP and Modbus TCP). When connected, users will benefit from library of common Modbus device profiles to establish communication between networks. Read More
