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.

Modbus RTU

The Modbus RTU driver allows our FieldServer gateways to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using Modbus RTU protocol. The Gateways are capable of being used as port expanders and can emulate either a Server or Client. The FieldServer is capable of supporting devices that use two Modbus Registers to transfer IEEE floating point format.


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


There are various register mapping models being followed by various vendors.


  • To cover all these models FieldServer uses the following three Models
  • Modicon_5digit – Use this format where addresses are defined in 0xxxx, 1xxxx, 3xxxx or 4xxxxformat. A maximum of 9999 registers can be mapped of each type. This is FieldServer driver’sdefault format.
  • ADU –Application Data Unit address. Use this format where addresses of each type are definedin the range 1-65536
  • PDU –Protocol Data unit address. Use this format where addresses of each type are defined inthe range 0-65535.

The key difference between ADU and PDU is for example if Address_Type is ADU and address is 1, thedriver will poll for register 0. If Address_Type is PDU, the driver will poll for address 1. 


LonWorks

The LonWorks driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices using LonWorks protocol. The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client. The FS-B30, QuickServer and SlotServer Series FieldServers have a built-in LonWorks Interface. A Fieldbus connection is available on the FieldServer. The FS-B30 and the SlotServer can handle up to 4096 Network Variables which can be of the Standard Network Variable Types (SNVT) and/or User-defined Network Variable Types (UNVT), and the QuickServer can handle 250 Network Variables (or a limit of 500 for the enhanced model).  

Approvals

FST - Lonworks Approvals
LonMark International

The following FieldServer Platforms are LonMark Certified:

http://www.chipkin.com/files/web30_prepImages/FST_lonmark_approval.jpg

The FieldServer provides the capability of defining multiple functional blocks, but only a single LonMark object. The user can create multiple functional blocks or a LonMark object by filling out the Node SelfDocumentation String and the respective Network Variable Self-documentation String fields in the FieldServer configuration file.

Standards & Certification

LonWorks became and ANSI standard in 1999, and subsequently became a widely adopted global standard. The standard is supported and maintained by LonMark International. Standards include:

ANSI-CEA-709.1-B
ISO-IEC 14908-1
ISO-IEC 14908-2
ISO-IEC 14908-3
ISO-IEC 14908-4

LonMark International is responsible for certification, education, and promotion of interoperability standards for the benefit of manufacturers, integrators, and end users. LonMark International has developed extensive product certification standards and tests to provide the integrator and user with confidence that products from multiple manufacturers can work together. 

 

Sierra Monitors FieldServer has more LonMark Certified gateways for integrators and OEMs that carry the LonMark logo than any other gateway manufacturer. For more information about our LonMark Certified products, visit the LonMark International Product Certification Directory.
