Cimetrics is excited to announce our same reliable ARCNET router in a modern updated hardware.The BR2 router provides routing between BACnet networks such as BACnet/IP, BACnet ARCNET, BACnet Ethernet, and virtual or tunneled BACnet networks. This allows integrators to mix and match BACnet network datalink technologies within a single BACnet Internetwork. The BR2 router has two communications ports in all cases. One is always a 10/100 Ethernet port and the other is a RG62 Coaxial cable or RS485 twisted pair.

•    Connects BACnet systems from different suppliers like Trane BCUs
•    Enables campus-wide control systems
•    Uses industry's leading BACnet OEM protocol stack (Cimetrics BACstac)
•    High bandwidth design
•    Easy browser-based configuration

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
To commission BACnet ARCNET devices one has generally been forced to use a special PC hardware ARCNET interface to communicate with the ARCNET RS485 or Coaxial LAN. The secret is that most BACnet ARCNET software can be run against BACnet/IP and communicate via BACnet Routing to BACnet ARCNET to achieve this configuration/setup connectivity. The Cimetrics BR2-A can accomplish this connectivity.

The BACnet/IP port on the BR2-A connects to the PC's Ethernet/TCPIP port using a standard CAT5 cable. The ARCNET port connects to the target BACnet ARCNET LAN (93 Ohm RG62 Coaxial cable or RS485 twisted pair plus ground cable in general). The BR-A can be powered from any 120VAC source. The BR2-A is setup using its embedded webpages. The baud rate of the BACnet ARCNET port is setup to match the baud rate and network number of the existing ARCNET LAN.

BACnet details:
•    BACnet 135.1-2003 ASHRAE & ISO standard
•    BBMD and FD (Foreign Device) support
•    BACnet/ARCNET = Co-ax or RS485 twisted pair
•    BACnet/IP or BACnet/HTTP with optional encryption
