Simplex 4100 to Modbus Jbus and Metasys N2 QuickServer Gateway

A FieldServer protocol gateway that provides data exchange between Simplex 4100 and Modbus Jbus and Metasys N2.
QuickServer is a high performance, fully configurable, cost effective Building and Industrial Automation gateway for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings and industrial plants.
The Metasys N2 by Johnson Controls network supports communications with a diverse range of devices.
The J-Bus driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using J-Bus protocol.
The Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over RS-232 using Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol.

Mobus Jbus

The J-Bus driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS- 485 using J-Bus protocol.

The FieldServer can emulate either a Server or Client. The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory defaults provided in the configuration files included with the FieldServer. 

Quickserver Gateway (Serial-Ethernet)

QuickServer is a high performance, fully configurable, cost-effective Building and Industrial Automation gateway for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings and industrial plants.

System integrators worldwide have benefitted from the value of the powerful line of interoperability gateways offered by FieldServer. Now, QuickServer adds to that value by running the same robust FieldServer protocol conversion software on a highly cost-effective platform backed by the experience, engineering expertise and proven technical support that integrators have come to expect from FieldServer.

QuickServer (Serial-Ethernet) is available in two series:

The FS-QS-1X10 Series is preloaded with two BAS drivers (two RS485 serial ports and one Ethernet port) Drivers from a list of over 150 protocols. There is a basic QuickServer that can handle up to 250 points and an enhanced QuickServer that can handle 500 points.

The FS-QS-1220 Series is preloaded with two BAS drivers (one RS485 serial port, one RS232 serial port, and one Ethernet port) Drivers from a list of over 150 protocols. Each QuickServer can handle up to 500 points.

Each QuickServer includes browser-based tools to make it easy to set-up QuickServer and perform diagnostics including determination of status, network settings, node information, map descriptors and more. The USB flash drive also includes the Discovery utility to determine what FieldServers are on a network.

Metasys N2

The Metasys® N21 by Johnson Controls network supports communications with a diverse range of devices. Many N2 compatible devices use their own version of the protocol and care must be taken to ensure that the device of interest is covered by the FieldServer implementation.

At present the FieldServer Metasys® N2 driver will support communications with the following devices or classes of devices when acting as a Client:

  • N2Open-compliant devices. N2Open is a published N2-compatible protocol enabling 3rd party device vendors to integrate with N2.
  • VMA 1400 series (with restrictions)
  • DX9100 and XT9100

When acting as a Server the FieldServer Metasys® N2 driver can emulate an N2Open device only.

Simplex 4100

The Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over RS-232 using Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol.

This driver is designed to connect to a Simplex 4100 panel equipped to support the “4100 Computer Port Protocol” as defined in Simplex’s document 950-004 Revision E dated 28 July 2000. The implementation provides a selected subset of protocol functions and subset of functionality for each of these selected functions. It is important to note the exclusions and limitations described in this document.

The driver is capable of parsing and storing information sent by a panel in the form of unsolicited messages which are typically generated when there is a state change in the panel or one of the connected devices. The driver is also capable of polling for point and panel status data and some additional data such as the panel’s time and revision information. In addition the driver is capable of setting some control points in the panel – acknowledging and resetting alarms and writing data (where permitted) to some analog and discrete points.

This is a client only driver and is not capable of emulating a Simplex Panel. Server emulation is provided for test purposes only and is not supported or documented.
