Most Popular Protocols for Protocol Gateways

Chipkin Protocol Converters aka Protocol Gateways

Chipkin provides solutions for over 200 Protocols and counting. With a speciality in Building Automation and Integration, Chipkin provides more than just Gateways, we also offer Data Clients, BACnet Routers, Stack, Software Tools, BACnet Explorer.

Chipkin Provides solutions, not boxes. We work with our clients to ensure the solution to their problems is customized to their needs. CONTACT US we are happy to provide a free consultation on your integration-related project. Even if we do not carry a solution, we may be able to build one for you. Main Logo blue.png

If a solution does not currently exist for your device, we regularly build custom solutions for our clients. To view the full protocol list CLICK HERE or scroll down, we provide solutions for many of those and can build custom solutions for the others.

BACnet Flavors

Chipkin has integration solutions for almost all BACnet protocols, the rest, we can develop. Currently, solutions exist for BACnet IP, BACnet MSTP, BACnet Ethernet, BACnet IPv6, and BACnet PTP.

Modbus® Flavors

Chipkin has solutions for most versions of the Modbus® protocol, the rest, we can develop. Currently, solutions exist for Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Modbus Plus, and Modbus ASCII. Modbus® is a registered trademark of Schneider Electric, licensed to the Modbus Organization, Inc.


The OPC UA protocol can be used to integrate OPC UA enabled devices and Networks with other protocols such as BACnet, Modbus, DNP3 etc. The Driver can fully integrate OPC UA devices into BAS and other devicves into OPC UA Systems.

Veeder Root

The Veeder-Root TLS protocol used in fuel tank monitoring systems is a serial protocol using the RS232 port. The Chipkin Veeder-Root Gateway, CAS 2700-02B, is the perfect solution to integrate any Veeder Root Panel.

Metasys N2

Metasysâ„¢ N2 is a non-proprietary (open) master-slave communication architecture created by Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI). Chipkin provides Metasys N2 gateways for a wide number of conversions.

DNP 3.0 Ethernet and DNP 3.0 Serial

DNP3 (Distributed Network Protocol) is a set of communications protocols used between components in process automation systems. Chipkin provides integration solutions for both Ethernet and Serial varients of the DNP protocol.


Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet Standard protocol for collecting and organizing information about managed devices on IP networks and for modifying that information to change device behavior. Chipkin has SNMP solutions for you!


LonWorks (local operating network) is a networking platform specifically created to address the needs of control applications. Chipkin has LonWorks integration products to integrate hundreds of devices.

Simplex 4100

SimplexGrinnell, a subsidiary of Tyco International, is a company specialized in active fire protection systems, communication systems and testing, inspection and maintenance services. Need to integrate Simplex Devices, we can help!


The Allen-Bradley DF1 Driver is used to communicate with most Allen Bradley RS232 interface modules manufactured by Rockwell Automation. Chipkin's DF1 driver support a vast array of Allen Bradley products.


The Danfoss Gateway connects to a Danfoss systems and poll for real time data. The CAS Gateway serves data from a Danfoss system as Modbus, BACnet or Web data. The gateway supports all these options simultaneously. Use the data you want and ignore the other.

SBT FSI Siemens Fire Alarm Systems

The SBT FSI (Siemens Building Technologies – Foreign Systems Interface) Driver is used to communicate with most Siemens Fire Alarm Systems. Chipkin's SBT FSI driver support most product lines that have Addressable Fire Alarm Systems.

Hunter ACC and ACC2

The Hunter ACC & ACC2 protocol can be used to connect to suitably enabled Hunter Industries controllers such as the ACC99 Irrigation Controller. The Driver can read and write data, change settings and issue commands to the irrigation system.

Vaisala Weather Transmitters

The Vaisala Weather ASCII Serial Driver is used to communicate with most Vaisala weather sensors and transmitters. This serial driver connects to a trunk of 1 or more Vaisala Weather Transmitters that support the Vaisala Ascii Protocol like the WXT530 transmitter.

Barrington MicroSTAR/LanSTAR Systems

Barrington Systems was a company that created the LanStar and MicroSTAR control units. The company closed down in 2007 and ceased all support operations. If you have a Barrington system that needs integration or monitoring, Chipkin has solutions that allow you to remote monitor and control your Barrington systems by exposing the Barrington data using the protocol of your choice such as Modbus, BACnet, Rockwell, XML, Web and dozens more.
