Case Studies

Chipkin regularly works on challenging and innovative projects in the Data communication world. This has allowed us to gain a wide range of knowledge which has made us an invaluable asset to the industry. See below for a list of Projects we have completed to help our everyday clients.

Case Study: BACnet IP and COSM

a Client's site consists of several sensors and power meters located in a remote location. Currently, the client has the sensors behind a firewall and does not have access to them without physically traveling to the remote site in order to view the information. This Current process of accessing the information is a hassle for the customer as it is time-consuming and costly. Every time they need access to the data, they have to send someone over to the remote site to manually retrieve it.

We have been asked to help the customer find a way to gain access to the sensors’ and power meters’ information directly from their office through an HMI... Read More!

Case Study - BACnet implementations

Chipkin Automation Systems (Chipkin) has developed over 50 protocol drivers for various gateways and are recognized as leaders in their field with special recognition with BACnet.

When a company manufacturers a sensor/device/system they need to provide methods for remote monitoring and control. That typically requires them to implement communication protocols based on the type of customers who purchase their products... Read More!

Case Study - Barrington Replacement - Stanford Research Institute (SRI)

The goal of this project is to replace the entire Barrington System in a cost-effective, production effective and resource effective way. This will be done by slowly removing the LanStar’s – replacing them with a gateway that connects the Microstars to a new BACnet enabled building management system... Read More!

Case Study - Barrington replacement at Berkeley Lab

The goal of this project is to replace the entire Barrington System in a cost-effective, production effective and resource effective way. This will be done by slowly replacing the LanStar’s with new BACnet based controllers.

As a 1st phase, the gateways convert the data to BACnet/IP. This allows a new HMI to be developed (and tested). Then new controllers can be programmed to perform the work the LanStar’s did and then the LanStar’s will be removed and the new controllers will talk directly to the trunks of MicroStar’s...

Case Study - EOS Lightmedia Gateway

Chipkin developed a custom driver for EOS Lighmedia to allow them to send control messages to Building Automation Systems using protocols like BACnet, Modbus, Rockwell … over 120 protocols.

This general-purpose gateway for EOS was applied to a lighting control project in Edmonton in spring 2018 where the EOS system sends command messages to the Douglas Lighting BACnet enabled lighting control system... Read More!

Case Study - Fire System Skill Set

Chipkin Automation Systems Inc. has developed drivers for a number of gateways including for major brand protocol gateway companies.

We have more experience with a wider variety of fire alarm panel protocols than any other single device... Read More!

Case Study - Modbus to C3.co.uk Automated Callout System

The industrial automation system at an Oil Refinery in Kuwait is the source of almost all operational data. It knows the state of the plant, the process and equipment. It knows if a tank is empty, a motor has been left in manual or if there has been a pressure drop that is unusual. In legacy systems, all this information is fed to the control room and there humans assess it and make callout decisions. Does an operator need to be sent to inspect the location? Does a maintenance team need to be called? Does an event need to be reported to a manager?... Read More!

Case Study - Princess Cruises

To implement a functional life safety system for less than then $300,000 our customer was quoted by a major Building Automation company.

To do so without major installation work.

To do so without interfering with the operation of the ship... Read More!

Case Study - Raybased Self Configuring BACnet Server for Advanced Building Automation

Chipkin implements the CAS BACnet stack on an Ubuntu Linux box for the customer. The implementation is in the form of an application which on its client side, reads data from connected RAYBASED devices using Json over HTTP. This data is used to self-configure and launch a BACnet IP Server allowing remote monitoring and control of the RAYBASED system... Read More!

Case Study - RS232 Splitting - Hot Standby - Fire Alarm Monitoring.pdf

Monitor Fire Alarm System events to the Building Automation System for remote monitoring and other applications. The customer requires hot standby system... Read More!

Case Study - Wireless Modbus using Phoenix RAD-900-IFS to DNP3 over Ethernet - Case Study

Running new conduit and cable was impossible, but getting the data was essential.

In this application, the inconvenience of a location without a network drop was overcome using a wireless solution from Phoenix Contact. RS485 ModbusRTU power meters located in a location where running new conduit would have been expensive and possibly disruptive... Read More!

Case Study - XML and QuickServers

Different protocols address data objects differently. That is why you can’t take a message from one protocol and automatically convert it to a message in another protocol. Modbus would through up its hands in despair if you asked it for Mutli_State_Input(19001) from Device 389001. BACnet has no idea what a Holding Register is. This is why gateways need configuration – a map – that maps data objects of the one protocol to data objects in another protocol... Read More!
