FieldServer B35XX Multiport Gateway

The FS-B35XX is designed to meet the needs of any system integrator in designing a complete interoperable system. The FS-B30XX Series brings together the powerful FieldServer driver library with state-of-the-art gateway design.

The FS-B35XX comes in 6 different variations:

  • B3510:This is your run of the mill B35XX, comes with four serial connections (two RS-232, two RS-485), two 10/100 Ethernet ports, and a LonWorks (Free Topology - FT) port. Perfect for most standard integrations.
  • B3512: This gateway is specialized for Profibus DP Slave Protocol integrations.
  • B3514:This gateway is specialized for ControlNet Slave Protocol integrations.
  • B3515:This gateway is specialized for DeviceNet Slave Protocol integrations.
  • B3520:This gateway is specialized for Profibus DP Master Protocol integrations.
  • B3521:This gateway is specialized for DeviceNet Master Protocol integrations.

The multiport gateway has support for 1,000 points which can be upgradable to 10,000 allowing it to easily handle multiple protocol drivers and multiple translations simultaneously with no slowdown in performance. The product includes the ports mentioned above depending on the protocol your require. The multiple ports and support for simultaneous protocol execution allow the Multiport Gateway to be used in the most complex integration scenarios. The availability of the second Ethernet port enables the integrator to connect a PC to download configuration changes without disturbing the system connections and without the additional cost of an external hub for the protocol gateway.

Chipkin has been working hand-in-hand with Sierra Monitor from the beginning. We have developed many of their drivers and continue to do so today. We know the product to source code level. If anyone has the capabilities to ensure you succeed in your integration, we are it. Don’t hesitate to CONTACT US for a free consultation.

Multiport Protocol Gateway units can be configured in the field, with all the necessary instructions and software included with the product. If the user prefers the unit to be pre-configured prior to delivery, Chipkin offers and highly recommends custom configuration services.
