Overview

Product Overview

The BACnet/IP driver provides an interface to connect, monitor, and control building automation devices—providing real-time data to a myriad of software applications, from building and energy management systems to enterprise IT networks. It provides connectivity to equipment using the BACnet protocol over IP (often referred to as BACnet/IP or BACnet Annex J). Devices on other BACnet network types may be accessed using BACnet gateway devices.

Performance

  • Integrates BACnet data into OPC-compliant HMI/SCADA applications
  • Enables BACnet data to be accessed by leading automation, HMI/SCADA, ERP, Big Data, asset management, and analytics packages via OPC, proprietary protocols, and IT protocols (including MQTT, REST, ODBC, and SNMP)
  • Supports Automatic Device Discovery
  • Supports Command Priority, which prioritizes write requests
  • Supports Application Protocol Data Unit (APDU), which affects message segmentation
  • Includes Automatic Tag Generation through device interrogation
  • Supports the following Standard Objects, including most of the required properties: Accumulator, Analog Input, Analog Output, Analog Value, Averaging, Binary Input, Binary Output, Binary Value, Calendar, Command, Device, Event Enrollment, File, Group, Life Safety Point, Life Safety Zone, Loop, Multi-State Input, Multi-State Output, Multi-State Value, Notification Class, Program, Schedule, and Trend Log

Additional Tech Info

Supported Protocol Details

The official BACnet specification "ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 135-2001 BACnet A Data Communication Protocol for Building Automation and Control Networks" describes all aspects of the BACnet protocol. When using Kepware's BACnet/IP device driver, it is recommended that users be familiar with the standard BACnet objects and properties discussed in Clause 12 and the BACnet/IP particulars outlined in Annex J. The specification is available along with many other useful resources through the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) or the official BACnet website at www.bacnet.org.

The Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) is available in the BACnet/IP product manual.
