Barrington MicroSTAR and LanSTAR Systems Integration
Intro to Barrington MicroSTAR/LanSTAR Systems Integration
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 for you. These solutions allow remote monitoring and control by exposing the Barrington data using the protocol of your choice such as Modbus, BACnet, Rockwell, XML, Web and dozens more. See below for some options:
These solutions have been deployed successfully by customers as well as being tested by CAS engineers using LanSTAR and MicroSTAR devices in CAS’s lab.
The MicroSTAR/LanSTAR QuickServer (QS) is a high-performance, fully configurable, and cost-effective protocol gateway for integrating many Barrington MicroSTAR/LanSTAR System.
The LanSTAR Gateway comes enhanced (500 points) and connects to RS232 ports. The MicroSTAR Gateway comes either basic or enhanced (250, 500 points). Chipkin knows this protocol to source code level. We offer expert support (Level 1,2) and configuration from day 1.
The FS-B3510 is one of the FS-X30 Series FieldServers designed to meet the needs of any system integrator.
The FS-B30 Series brings together the powerful FieldServer driver library with state-of-the-art gateway design. It supports 1,000 points which can be updrageded to 10,000 points allowing it to easily handle just about anything with no slowdown in performance.

Description of the MicroSTAR/LanSTAR Driver
The LanSTAR driver is used to exchange data between a FieldServer and a ‘MicroSTAR’ devices by polling the LanStar they are connected to. When this driver is used the gateway must be connected to 1 of the 4 ports on the Lanstar.
The MicroSTAR driver is used to exchange data between a FieldServer and a ‘MicroSTAR’ devices. They are also commonly known as ‘Barrington MicroSTAR’ devices. For this driver to work, the LanStar must be removed as the gateway becomes the master on the trunk of Microstars
