Control SolutionsControl Solutions, Inc., Minnesota, is pleased to announce the release of the Babel Buster Pro V230 BACnet‐SNMP Gateway.

This gateway includes an intelligent automatic table walker and trap receiver, in  addition to traditional SNMP client, to make it easy to connect BACnet to UPS systems with SNMP RFC  1628 or proprietary power equipment MIBs. The Babel Buster Pro V230 supports both BACnet IP and MS/TP, and includes a BACnet client and server  as well as SNMP v1/v2c client and server. Use this gateway to make SNMP data accessible on a BACnet  network, or to query BACnet objects from the SNMP network. SNMP data does not always translate nicely into simple numeric data presentable as common BACnet  objects. To allow total flexibility in interpreting SNMP data, the Babel Buster Pro V230 is user  programmable in Basic to interpret SNMP strings and generate BACnet object data based on the SNMP  data. The user’s Basic program has access to SNMP MIB data as well as trap messages received by the  gateway. Simple numeric data is automatically translated from SNMP to BACnet or vice versa by simply  setting up a table of SNMP variables and BACnet objects that map to each other, and requires no user  programming.

Sedona Application EditorContemporary Controls - Sedona Application Editor

Contemporary Controls, a Sedona Framework Community member, has developed the Sedona Application Editor (SAE) which allows graphical development of control applications for Sedona devices like Contemporary Controls' BAScontrol20, 22 and BASremote. SAE is available for download from Contemporary Controls' website. Included with the download is a Sedona Virtual Machine (SVM) that runs on your PC so that you can experience the simplicity of developing Sedona applications with SAE without first needing to purchase a Sedona controller.  A Sedona device is defined as having a Sedona Virtual Machine (SVM) of which Contemporary Controls has developed a series of BACnet/IP Sedona Unitary Controllers in its BAScontrol and BASremote series. These freely-programmable controllers can now be programmed with SAE instead of Niagara Workbench. Those with experience with Niagara Framework will have no problem understanding Sedona Framework. For those without Niagara experience, the graphical representation of components linked on a wire sheet to create applications is intuitive and can be easily learned with minimum training.

Cimetrics BACnet ExplorerFREE, FULLY FUNCTIONAL BACnet Explorer - Cimetrics

Explore your BACnet network

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.

KNX to BACnetKNX to BACnet Gateway

The IntesisBox Gateway has been specially designed to allow bidirectional control and monitoring of all parameters and functionalities of a KNX installation from a BMS, SCADA or any other device working as a BACnet client.  The aim of this integration is to make accessible KNX system signals and resources from a BACnet/IP based control system or device, as if it was a part of the own BACnet system and vice-versa. For this, the gateway acts as a BACnet/IP Server device in its BACnet interface, allowing other BACnet/IP devices to perform subscription (COV) requests, and also read and write its internal points.

HG1GIDEC Adopts Leading-Edge Consumer Technology for Industrial Use

IDEC Corporation announces the 4.3” HG1G HMI, one of industry’s first display products to take full advantage of the worldwide standard 4.3” LCD screen size. Because this screen size is so widely used in consumer gaming devices and other commercial products, it effectively obsoletes HMIs with smaller screen sizes by offering a larger and higher resolution display area at a lower price. The HG1G display is TFT Color LCD with high resolution of 480 x 272 pixels, 65K colors, and 800 cd/m2 brightness. This level of resolution produces a much improved viewing experience, and the increased brightness allows screens to be easily viewable in direct sunlight. Viewing can be configured for either portrait or landscape, with a viewing angle of 60 degrees from top, 65 degrees from the bottom, and 70 degrees from left or right. HMIs often need to communicate with a variety of different PLCs, controllers and other HMIs from different vendors, and the HG1G HMI delivers this functionality by supporting multiple communication protocols, up to four simultaneously. The serial port can support both RS-232C and RS-422/485 communications simultaneously, and the Ethernet port can support up to four Hosts and three User communication protocols at the same time. The serial port and the Ethernet port combined can thus support up to nine communication simultaneously, two serial and seven Ethernet.

Contemporary Controls is introducing the unmanaged EISK8-GT/H 8 port gigabit Ethernet switch with hub functionality.

Yes, we purposely "broke" the address learning functionality of the switch so that all messages - directed, multicast, broadcast - are flooded to all ports on the switch allowing a protocol analyzer tool such as Wireshark® the ability to observe all traffic on the network. We kept the best part of the switch functionality by maintaining the auto-negotiation of the data rate at 10/100/1000 Mbps and allowing a straight through or cross-over cable on a per port basis. So in your field work if communication problems sometimes cause you serious grief the EISK8-GT/H is the tool to help you resolve the issues. If you prefer a smaller diagnostic switch, there is a 5 port gigabit model EISK5-GT/H or the 5 port 10/100 model EISK5-100T/H. For more information please visit the Diagnostic Switch page.
