BACnet RouterSierra Monitor BACnet Router FS-Router-BAC

The BACnet Router FS-Router-BAC product from Sierra Monitor offers a complete BACnet internetworking solution for BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP networks. The BACnet Router has two RS-485 ports, enabling up to 64 BACnet devices connected to it without the use of additional line drivers. Using a BACnet router frees up valuable RS-485 ports on expensive BACnet Controllers and reduces the cost of connecting BACnet MS/TP devices to a BACnet/IP backbone. Also, relative to using single-port BACnet routers, using Sierra Monitor's dual-port BACnet router reduces the cost of device connectivity or doubles the speed (half the response time) per device.  DeviceFind™, our unique discovery feature, allows the integrator to push a button and discover all the BACnet devices connected to the router, thereby minimizing time required for successful commissioning. Complementing this is our diagnostic FieldServer ToolBox, which allows the user or integrator to view the status and diagnose all the Routers on the network.
