FieldServer QuickServer Gateways

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 even have the capabilities to add additional protocols to the QuickServers not supported by the original manufacturer. 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. Below is a general overview of the QuickServer flavors.

The Classic QuickServer (FS-QS-1XXX) and Upgraded QuickServer (FS-QS-2XXX) are a family of high-performance, fully configurable, and cost-effective building and industrial automation protocol gateways. They are designed for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings, campuses, and industrial facilities.

There are Six standard models that come in basic (250 points) or enhanced (500-5000 points) and can connect to serial (RS485 and RS232), Ethernet, and/or LonWorks as well as KNX and M-Bus


Key Features of the QuickServer:

  • Ability to interface up to 250 points (basic) or 500 points (enhanced) of common BAS protocols
  • All QuickServers are BTL certified and carry the Mark
  • All LonWorks QuickServers are LonMark Certified
  • BACnet COV support for fast data communication while reducing traffic over a BACnet network
  • RS-232 or RS-422 serial port options Besides RS-485, Ethernet, and LonWorks
  • Multi-configuration capability; specific configurations selectable via DIP switches or software
  • External DIP switches and LED lights to aid in easy set-up and operation
  • Flat panel mount standard, DIN rail mount option
  • DIP switches to select baud rate or node ID on the fly

The user can pre-select two protocol drivers to be loaded on the QuickServer as part of the base product. Common combinations of drivers include two or more of Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, BACnet/IP, BACnet MS/TP, LonWorks, Metasys N2 by JCI, and SNMP. However, with support for more than 150 protocols, the integrator has ultimate flexibility.

QuickServer units can be configured in the field, with all the necessary instructions and software being included with the QuickServer. If the user prefers the unit to be pre-configured prior to delivery, Chipkin offers and highly recommends custom configuration service. Over 90% of clients will require help with configuration.

The QuickServer is approved across a variety of standards, including UL 916, CE, and RoHS. Protocol certifications include the BTL Mark, LonMark, and DNP3 Conformance. These approvals and certifications assure our customers that we carry only the highest quality of standards-compliant products.

With multi-protocol flexibility, ease-of-use, wide deployment, and world-class technical support, the QuickServer protocol gateway is truly the Swiss Army knife of systems integration.
