BACnet/IP to Web Services Gateway/Firewall (high capacity)

B6085


Collections: BACnet, Web Services

Category: REST, web services

Type: BACnet


  • The BACnet/IP to Web Services Gateway enables innovative applications to come together with existing Building Automation systems so you can offer solutions which save money and improve building comfort. B6085 allows integration of BACnet/IP devices in Enterprise Applications systems using a REST-style web services architecture. The device uses Cimetrics' BACrest API (Application Program Interface). It is a specification that lets you read and write data to device-centric networks using URL-like commands.

    The meaning of the word BACrest is Building Automation Control Relational State Transfer. The "REST" part of this name is a well known IT terminology used to describe the architecture used to create the Internet "URL system". We have created a version of "REST" that applies to the needs of device-centric networks.

    The Web Services connection conforms to XML/SOAP and WSDL standards which are supported by almost all Enterprise software vendors. This allows an easy method of controlling and monitoring BACnet devices without needing to know anything about the BACnet protocol.

    The BACnet/IP connection conforms to the BACnet 2004 standard and is a 3rd generation protocol stack created by the Cimetrics development team.  Mapping between the BACnet/IP network and the Web Services calls is done using password protected browser setup screens. Since two isolated Ethernet ports are used, this device also acts as a firewall, meaning that no unintended communications or control is possible between the two networks.

    Some of the features of the BACnet/IP to Web Services Gateway are

    • Models with two Ethenet ports that help BACnet/IP devices connect to Enterprise Applications/Network
    • Complete isolation between the two Ethernet ports to help act as a firewall between the BAS and Enterprise network
    • Built in web server for easy browser based configuration
