Chipkin and FieldServer
Chipkin has worked with FieldServer Technologies Inc. since September 2000. Initially, Chipkin provided software engineering services and helped FieldServer develop its driver library. At one point over 40% of FieldServer’s library had been developed by Chipkin. Our primary role changed from engineering development to 2nd tier tech support and to now the sale of FieldServer products. We sell, support, configure, and develop new drivers and add value to FieldServer devices.
Chipkin is an Approved FieldServer Integrator
Based on the length of our business relationship and our in-house skills and experience, FieldServer Technologies has appointed Chipkin as an approved integrator. Chipkin was amongst the 1st group of integrators that FST approved. We can develop new protocol drivers for FieldServer products.
If you need to bring your product to the BAS market, we can help you by developing a driver custom built for you.
What can FieldServer Products Do for You?
FieldServer solves communication and protocol conversion problems and improves response times in distributed data acquisition and control systems. The FieldServer is available as:
Chipkin knows FieldServer products to source code level. We have developed over 40 drivers in the FieldServer Library. We have helped customers install and integrate thousands of devices. We know the protocols, we know the BAS products, we know instrumentation and automation and we even provide on-site integration services for those that rather not get involved at all.
Besides developing many of the libraries for FieldServer products, Chipkin also has proprietary libraries supported by the FieldServer Gateways. This allows Chipkin to offer a vast number of solutions. Not only that, but as we know FieldServer products to source code level, we are able to develop new libraries at customers request. If you do not see your protocol conversion mix on our website, please CONTACT US for a free consultation. We may be able to put together a custom job for you.
Please see below for a list of FieldServer products:
QuickServer (FS-QS- 1XXX) is a family of high-performance, fully configurable, and cost-effective building and industrial automation protocol gateways for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings, campuses, and industrial facilities. There are four standard models that come in basic (250 points) or enhanced (500 points) and can connect to serial (RS485 and RS232), Ethernet, and/or LonWorks.
Chipkin has the capabilities to add additional protocols to the QuickServers not supported by the original manufacturer. Interested? Read More!
The FieldServer Multiport Protocol Gateway (FS-B35XX) is an extremely flexible tool for integrators looking to connect devices to the cloud and on different physical networks, using different links, and speaking different protocols.
With support for 1,000 points (upgradable to 10,000), the Multiport Gateway can easily handle multiple protocol drivers and multiple translations simultaneously with no slowdown in performance. The product includes four serial connections (two RS-232, two RS-485), two 10/100 Ethernet ports, and a LonWorks (Free Topology - FT) port. Interested? Read More!
The EZ Gateways is an easy-to- use, high-performance, building and industrial automation protocol gateway for system integrators to be used in commercial buildings, campuses or industrial facilities.
The EZ Gateway provides quick multiprotocol deployment of field protocols to enable integrators to commission the gateway with ease.
The BACnet Router provides stand-alone routing between BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet and BACnet MS/TP.
BACnet utilizes the same protocol whether it is over RS-485 Serial, Ethernet or IP. In order to interconnect between the various levels a BACnet Router is required. The FieldServer BACnet Router can easily interconnect between BACnet MS/TP, BACnet Ethernet or BACnet/IP.
We also can provide assistance with a variety of FieldServer products, some of which are discontinued or by special order. By calling our sales team, we can work on a solution that is right for you. Call us today!
