You have two devices in two different buildings on two completely different networks, one that uses the BACnet IP protocol to communicate, while the other one talks Telnet protocol and they need to talk to each other. What do you do?
A FieldServer is a protocol converter or gateway that can communicate in many different protocols and physical layers including BACnet IP protocol and the Telnet protocol. The Fieldserver acts as a middle man between the two devices. It reads data from one device, stores it internally and makes it available to the 2nd device using another protocol. This is how the FieldServer converts BACnet IP data to Telnet data.
It's a simple solution to a common problem that we can help you with.
BACnet IP is part of the ASHRAE’s BACnet family of protocols that operates on the Ethernet IP network. With the help of a Fieldserver we can set and retrieve BACnet IP points and settings from your device, or make data from other BACnet devices points available to your device. The Fieldserver can convert BACnet IP to a wide variety of other building automation protocols and acts as a protocol converter or gateway More information, Driver Data Sheet
The Telnet protocol driver can act as a Telnet Client or Server. As a Server it supports the following options:
* Telnet sessions initiated by standard Telnet clients, allowing users to access a Command Line Interface on the FieldServer.
* Serial Port Capture on the FieldServer to allow user interaction with serial devices via Telnet, either through the Telnet server user interface, or by pre-configured auto-connect.
* Pre-configured binary connection from Telnet to Serial Port, i.e. as a Remote Serial Port Server which can be used by PC-based serial port redirectors. Present support is for "raw TCP" mode; RFC2217 port control functionality will be implemented in future.
* Any serial protocol supported by the FieldServer may be run in a Serial-over-Ethernet mode, e.g. TL1.
As a Telnet Client the FieldServer can connect to another Telnet Server, for example to provide seamless serial-to-serial connectivity between two FieldServers over Ethernet.
