      With “plug-and-play”, BACnet Explorer for BACnet/IP you can discover BACnet devices on connected networks. Connect Explorer to a BACnet Network and it will automatically discover and display a listing of all BACnet devices on that network. Once a device is discovered, you can enumerate the BACnet Objects in that Device. Devices on different networks can also be discovered if the networks are connected by a BACnet Router or BACnet Broadcast Management Device (BBMD). It will also display BACnet devices as they join networks in real time.

Using the BACnet Explorer, users can discover every BACnet device on the directly-connected network. Devices on different networks can also be discovered if the networks are connected by a BACnet Router or BBMD.

      With BACnet Explorer, users can auto-populate BACnet device information with just a few mouse clicks. Objects within discovered devices can be queried for their properties and values. Some property values can also be changed using the Explorer. 

      Capture, Save and restore your BACnet Network Configuration

      The BACnet network configuration can be saved in an XML format file:

      This enables users to read/edit the configuration and to provide the configuration to others.

      Browse / discover specific BACnet devices and objects

      BACnet Explorer also allows the user to discover just one specified device without exploring the whole network. The user does this by specifying the Device ID or the BACnet network address of the target device.

      The BACnet Explorer also allows discovery of just one specific object within a discovered device if its object ID is known. This allows an object to be read even if it is not included in the device's object list, Likewise a proprietary property that was not automatically discovered by the Explorer can be read if its property ID is known.
