BACnet Interface to Energy Meters (high capacity)

B6035


Collections: BACnet, Metering, MODBUS

Category: Modbus TCP

Type: BACnet


  • This product converts data from many popular power and energy meters to BACnet. See the list of supported meters in Supported Meters tab.

    This product features VERY EASY setup and great compatibility.

    B6035 meter exposes data from Modbus TCP meters  to BACnet/IP networks. It can interface to up to 100 Modbus TCP meters.

    A B6035 is housed in a professional rugged metal case and can be mounted standalone, on a wall using a wall bracket kit or on a DIN rail. It has one or two Ethernet 10/100 RJ45 connectors for connecting to BACnet, Modbus and web configuration.

    The configuration is done over Ethernet through onboard web pages, and can therefore be managed from a remote location. The configuration is simple and the meter is up and running in minutes.

    The B6035 has over 47 templates of well known BTU, steam or electric meters (from various manufacturers) where important registers are mapped to BACnet objects. These permanently available meter templates can be selected during the setup procedure using a drop down menu.

    Meter data exposed to the BACnet network includes, but is not limited to:

    • Power
    • Energy
    • Demand
    • MaxDemand
    • Power_Factor
    • Flow
    • Consumption
    • Current, Voltage and Phase (if supported by the meter)

    The Ethernet port uses a standard shielded RJ45 connector with integral LEDs. A power data LED blinks green as data is passed.

    • Professional BACnet/IP connectivity
    • Interfaces to 100 Steam, BTU, or Electrical meters

    BACnet details:

    • confirms to BACnet 2004 (ISO standard 1684-5).
    • Data values = analog objects.
    • Times = binary objects.
  • Modbus TCP to BACnet/IP for unifying data

    Most facilities which have a BACnet Building Automation System also have large numbers of of Modbus TCP meters which need to be attached to the BACnet system. Our B6035 can be used to accomplish this goal. A B6035 acts as a ModbusTCP to BACnet interface - taking modbus registers data and exposing it as BACnet. There is no need to

    spend time picking and choosing what registers to expose from each meter. AB6035 already has templates for more than 45 meters where all important Modbusregisters are mapped to BACnet objects. All BACnet objects are meaningfully named and standardized for easier reading and integration to Building Automation Systems.

    Configuration steps include specifying meters IP address, meter Modbus ID and template. Configuration can be saved to a text file and then can be reloaded to the device or uploaded to a new one, thus significantly saving time. Also all the mapping data can be saved to a CSV file, and later can be used for analyzing data.

    Versatile Web-based controller

    A resident web server in the B6035 allows for commissioning, and troubleshooting via a standard web browser. TheB6035 supports various protocols such as HTTP, IP, UDP, BACnet/IP, Modbus TCP. All Cimetrics devices have a unified web interface approach. Once you configure one of these devices you will understand configuring other Cimetrics devices in this family.

    B6035 Parameters:

    TCP/IP and BACnet Configuration

    IP address - IP address of device. (Default=192.168.0.22)
    Network mask - Subnet mask for given subnet. (Default=255.255.255.0)
    Default gateway - IP address of default gateway. (Default=192.168.0.1)
    BACnet UDP port - BACnet/IP UDP Port (Default = 47808). In some cases, e.g., a situation where it is desirable for two groups of BACnet devices to coexist independently on the same IP subnet, the UDP port may be configured locally to a different value.
    BACnet Device# - Device ID is a numeric code [1-4194303] that is used to identify the BACnet Device. Default = 1457009 generated from MAC
    BACnet Device Location/Application- Location/application string (0-63 characters) to help user find  Device Object Name

    Meter Configuration SettingsB6030 Meter Configuration Page

    Polling Delay - Idle time(in sec) between the end of one poll and the start of the next. Default=30 sec. Range: [5-3600]. The Polling Delay is actual only for meters with "Polling" parameter set to "Periodically"
    Settings per meter (up to 100 meters)
    Meter Model - "None" means that polling is disabled for this meter
    IP - IP Address used by the Modbus/TCP device. Empty IP means Modbus/RTU
    Modbus ID -Address of remote device connected on a serial line thru Modbus router (for example: Cimetrics B2000). Valid range: [1-247] for Modbus/TCP router. Empty(or 0) for Modbus/TCP device.
    Polling - How to update values: On demand (by user) or Periodically (using Polling Delay)
    Description - Meter description (up to 63 characters)
