This protocol translator/gateway provides a wealth of features to enable data transfer between different devices and networks utilizing serial, Ethernet or LonWorks protocols. The extensive library of FieldServer drivers provides easy interoperability with devices and networks used in building automation, HVAC, fire and process control industries.
The FS-B3510 is one of the FS-X30 Series FieldServers designed to meet the needs of system integrators in designing a complete interoperable system. The FS-B30 Series brings together the powerful FieldServer driver library with state-of-the-art gateway design. This FieldServer includes four serial connections (two RS-232, two RS-485), two 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports, and a LonWorks port. The multiport design allows for serial-to-serial interfaces or interface, from multiple serial products to an Ethernet or LonWorks network. The two Ethernet ports enable the integrator to connect a PC to download configuration changes without disturbing the system connections and without the additional cost of an external hub. The second Ethernet port is also used for the optional hot standby for redundant system requirements.
