Gamewell FCI E3 to BACnet IP


Quickserver Gateway (Serial-Ethernet)

QuickServer is a high performance, fully configurable, cost effective Building and Industrial Automation gateway for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings and industrial plants.

System integrators world-wide have benefitted from the value of the powerful line of interoperability gateways offered by FieldServer. Now, QuickServer adds to that value by running the same robust FieldServer protocol conversion software on a highly cost effective platform backed by the experience, engineering expertise and proven technical support that integrators have come to expect from FieldServer.

QuickServer is available in two series. The FS-QS-10XX Series is preloaded with two BAS drivers (serial, Ethernet and/or LonWorks) from a choice of Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, BACnet/IP®, BACnet MS/TP, LonWorks®, JCI Metasys® N2 and SNMP. Each QuickServer can handle up to 250 points.

The FS-QS-12XX Series QuickServer is available to use any Serial, Ethernet or LonWorks driver in the extensive FieldServer driver library. The FS-QS-12XX Series can handle up to 500 points and is available with a choice of RS-485, RS-232 or RS- 422 serial ports, KNX or M-Bus, in addition to Ethernet and LonWorks (optional).

Each QuickServer includes browser-based tools to make it easy to set-up QuickServer and perform diagnostics including determination of status, network settings, node information, map descriptors and more. The USB flash drive also includes the Discovery utility to determine what FieldServers are on a network.

Gamewell FCI-E3

The Gamewell FCI E3 Series System Control Units are manufactured by Fire Control Instruments. A Gamewell FCI-E3 Panel with an enabled serial port can transmit data to a FieldServer which can, in turn, make the data available to other devices including those which communicate using different protocols.

Messages received from the E3 are analyzed and are then either discarded or used to update the FieldServer’s internal Data Arrays depending on the configuration of the FieldServer. Once stored in the FieldServer the data is available to be read or written using other protocols.

This passive Client driver does not poll for data, nor does it send data or commands to the E3, thus it cannot be used to acknowledge, silence or reset alarms and other events.

No automatic panel data synchronization technique exists. The data in the FieldServer and the panel status have to be synchronized manually. This typically requires a panel reset.

The driver can process messages from networked panels. The driver connects to the main panel. Subsidiary panels are configured to send event data to the main panel which then sends messages to the FieldServer. Node information is sent in the line preceding the event and the driver uses this to determine the panel at which the event originated and to store data appropriately.

The driver provides both Client and Server emulation. The Server side of the driver is intended to support FieldServer’s Quality Assurance program and is not intended to provide complete emulation of an E3 and is thus not fully documented. Should you require the Server side functionality to be documented and enhanced, please contact FieldServer’s sales group. 

BACnet IP

The BACnet/IP driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over Ethernet using BACnet/IP protocol. The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client.

All information in a BACnet system is represented in terms of objects. The Object_Identifier is a 32-bit code that identifies the type of Object (also identified by the Object_Type Property) and its "Instance" number, which together uniquely identify the Object within its BACnet device. Theoretically, a BACnet device could have over four million Objects of a particular type. The Object_Name is a text string, which has a unique capability.

BACnet devices may broadcast queries for devices that contain Objects with a specific Object_Name. This can greatly simplify project setup.

BACnet requires one Device Object to be present in every BACnet device. The Device Object makes information about the device and its capabilities available to other devices on the networks. Before one BACnet device starts control-related communications with another, it needs to obtain some of the information presented by the other device's Device Object. Unlike other Objects, the Device Object's Instance number must be unique across the entire BACnet internetwork because it is used to uniquely identify the BACnet devices. It may be used to conveniently identify the BACnet device from other devices during installation.

Standard object types are used to hold real time data and other information. Each Object Type is referenced by a number, for example 0 represents an Analog Input. See Appendix D.1 for abbreviation list.

Each Object consists of a number of prescribed properties, the main property being the Present_Value. Objects are monitored and controlled through their properties.

The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory defaults provided in the configuration files included with the FieldServer.
