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.
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.
The Ethernet IP driver allows the FieldServer totransfer data to and from devices over Ethernet usingthe EtherNet/IP protocol. The FieldServer canemulate either a Server or Client.
EtherNet/IP uses CIP (Control and InformationProtocol), the common network, transport andapplication layers also shared by ControlNet andDeviceNet. EtherNet/IP then makes use of standardEthernet and TCP/IP technology to transport CIPcommunications packets. The result is a common,open application layer on top of open and highlypopular Ethernet and TCP/IP protocols.
The Driver is able to read/write using the Data Tablestructure employed by all Logix Series PLC’s.
PCCC support is also provided for legacy devicesthat do not fully support CIP encapsulation. EIPPCCC Encapsulation was tested at the FST factoryusing a PLC5 I785 ENET card. The following datatypes were tested:
The Driver also supports PCCC communication onSLC and MicroLogix (Tested on MicroLogix 1400Device)
Fragmented Services (0x52) is supported fordata_table read and write operations.
The Allen Bradley DF1 driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over RS-232 using
DF1 protocol. The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client.
