Classic 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 worldwide 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 (Serial-Ethernet) is available in two series:

The FS-QS-1X10 Series is preloaded with two BAS drivers (two RS485 serial ports and one Ethernet port) Drivers from a list of over 150 protocols. There is a basic QuickServer that can handle up to 250 points and an enhanced QuickServer that can handle 500 points.

The FS-QS-1220 Series is preloaded with two BAS drivers (one RS485 serial port, one RS232 serial port, and one Ethernet port) Drivers from a list of over 150 protocols. Each QuickServer can handle up to 500 points.

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.

BACnet MSTP

The BACnet Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) driver implements a data link protocol that uses the services of the RS-485 physical layer. See the FieldServer BACnet PIC statement for the level of conformance that this driver implements.

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.

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 Analog Input Object is representative of the Objects involved directly with control elements and many of its Properties reflect this.

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

Quickserver Gateway (Serial-Ethernet)

The 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 (Serial-Ethernet) is available in two series:

The QuickServer FS-QS-2X10 series is available at four different point capacities. Each QuickServer is preloaded with two drivers (serial and/or Ethernet) from a customer’s choice of 140 different drivers, E.G. Modbus, BACnet, SNMP, EtherNet/IP and many more.

The FS-QS-2010 with 2 RS485 and 1 ethernet port can support up to 250 points. The FS-QS-2210 can support up to 500 points. The FS-QS-2310 can support up to 3,000 points. The FS-QS-2410 can support up to 5,000 points.

Equivalently the FS-QS-2020 with 1 RS485, 1 RS232 and 1 ethernet port can support up to 250 points. The FS-QS-2220 can support up to 500 points. The FS-QS-2320 can support up to 3,000 points. The FS-QS-2420 can support up to 5,000 points.

Every 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.

Canatal

The Canatal Satchnet Protocol Driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using Canatal Satchnet Protocol Driver protocol.

The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client.

This driver provides support for the Canatal International implementation of the “Satchwell Network (Full) and Net2 (Reduced)” protocol.

The Canatal Satchnet Protocol Driver can act as a Satchnet Master.

 Any Satchnet device on any serial port (P1-P8, R1-R21 ) can be polled

 Data from Series 2, 4, 5, 6,8, 9 devices can be polled.

 Data from any 'Table' can be read.

 Data in 'Tables' with “write permission” can be written to by the driver.

 The driver can read/write Bit, Byte, Word, BCD and Float Data. The Canatal Satchnet Protocol Driver can act as a (passive) Server.

 The driver can be polled by a Satchnet Master and return data from the FieldServer's data arrays.

 The driver can emulate Series 2,4,5,6,8,9 devices.

 All “Tables” can be read/written in accordance with their read/write capability

Additional Information

BACnet MSTP to IP

A BACnet Router is used to connect MSTP trunks to BACNetIP systems. The router itself is a device on the IP and on the MSTP side. The router can also act as BBMD device allowing messages to cross from one subnet to another.

BACnet BBMD

BACnet messages cannot cross from one subnet to another except under special circumstances.

Most BACnet sequenc es of messages begin with a broadcast called 'who is'. All devices respond with 'I am'. That is how they are discovered. It is also how many system confirm the device is still there.

Broadcasts can't cross routers (they are blocked) and therefore devices on the other side of a router cannot e discovered.


BBMD is the name of the BACNet technology that resolves these issues. The BACNet ROuter sold by CAS provides BBMD services as do all FieldServer BACNet products when configured as clients.
