Control Solutions has introduced five new network gateways useful in integrating legacy LonWorks based equipment into updated BACnet or Modbus networks. These gateways use a non-bound polled interface to LonWorks devices making them accessible from BACnet or Modbus networks without additional LonWorks network management tools.

The Babel Buster BB2-6020-NB replaces the legacy Babel Buster X2 for connecting LonWorks devices to a Modbus TCP network. The BB2-2010-NB is used to connect LonWorks devices to a Modbus RTU network.

The Babel Buster BB2-7020-NB replaces the legacy Babel Buster IP/XL, and the BB2-3020-NB replaces the legacy Babel Buster 485XL. These gateways are used to connect LonWorks devices to BACnet IP and BACnet MS/TP networks respectively.

All of the new LonWorks gateways have Windows based configuration software that is provided at no charge. The new software is more advanced than any previous Windows based configuration tools offered by Control Solutions, and offers far more capability than previous HTML based configuration schemes. Most importantly, the tool has a consistent look and feel for all versions of LonWorks gateways regardless of protocol or model number. The configuration tool connects to the LonWorks gateways via USB, thus eliminating the need for any additional network interfaces to get the gateway configured.

Control Solutions, Inc “We are seeing increasing demand for the ability to integrate legacy LonWorks equipment into updated control systems that use either BACnet or Modbus”, says Jim Hogenson, President of Control Solutions. “We are responding to this increase in demand with improved network gateways, and tools that make it easier to configure them.”
