Cimetrics also offers an OEM-customized version of this product. Click here for more information.
The Cimetrics B6001, based on the Lantronix XPort, is a physically small BACnet/IP to BACnet MS/TP Router module that can be built into your product. It routes BACnet communications between BACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP local area networks. This allows BACnet/IP devices to communicate with devices on a BACnet MS/TP network. Communication through the 10/100 Ethernet port conforms to the BACnet/IP standard which is complemented by many network friendly features such as DHCP and password protected browser based setup screens. This device requires no point mapping, and configuration is simple.
The B6001 is for customers who would like to avoid the hassle of BACnet development and yet have BACnet/IP to BACnet/MSTP routing ability in their products. Buying the B6001 would require customers to design their Printed Circuit Board to accommodate the B6001 (which is a Lantronix Xport). With the help of a professional Electrical Engineer one would follow the instructions and within this guide to do the layout on your board. Also, do keep in mind that your Circuit Board would need to have an appropriate RS-485 transceiver. Once this is done, the product will have the ability to be a BACnet/IP to BACnet/MSTP router in addition to any other functionality your product is designed for.

The Cimetrics B6001 is a BACnet/IP to BACnet/MSTP Router. It helps route communications between BACnet/IP andBACnet/MSTP local area networks. This allows BACnet/IP devices to communicate with BACnet devices on a BACnet/MSTPnetwork.
The B6001 can be used along with the Cimetrics BAS-o-matic Protocol Analyzer to capture, decode and analyze communications on a BACnet/MSTP network. This is very useful for troubleshooting.
