PS56-BAS-xxx

The SlotServer ControlLogix BACnet Communication Interfaces allow an Allen Bradley ControlLogix platform to pass up to 1500 points of data between a ControlLogix PAC and BACnet devices and networks. The BACnet SlotServer can be configured as a BACnet slave or Master enabling exchange of information between BACnet Master devices such as Trane BCU, Alerton Controllers, etc) or BACnet slave devices such as VSD, lighting controls, AC controls, etc.

PS56-BAS-xxx

 

The SlotServer ControlLogix BACnet Communication Interfaces allow an Allen Bradley ControlLogix platform to pass up to 1500 points of data between a ControlLogix PAC and BACnet devices and networks. The BACnet SlotServer can be configured as a BACnet slave or Master enabling exchange of information between BACnet Master devices such as Trane BCU, Alerton Controllers, etc) or BACnet slave devices such as VSD, lighting controls, AC controls, etc.

Physically configured to plug into a standard ControlLogix rack, the SlotServer Module is configured for the 1756 platform using standard RSLogix message block reads to allow for efficient transfer of large blocks of data.  Specific configuration data is contained in the Configuration CSV file downloaded to the module.

SlotServer is a flexible communications module that can be configured to communicate to a wide range of protocols found in the extensive FieldServer Technologies library of protocols.  The SlotServer is recognized as an input/output module by ControlLogix and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module

 

Features and Benefits

FieldServer Technologies has been a leader in BACnet Gateways for many years, successfully used by all major building automation system manufacturers and integrators. BACnet is available in RS-232 (BACnet PTP – requires an RS-232/RS-485 converter), RS-485 (BACnet MS/TP) or Ethernet (BACnet Ethernet or BACnet IP).  The SlotServer can accept any of these types.

SlotServers are also available for other building automation control protocols and most common fire alarm control panel protocols.  For information about the specific protocol, please refer to the datasheet for that specific protocol.

Contact ProSoft Technology to learn more about the SlotServer and the specific protocols available to meet your specific needs.

Specifications

SlotServer is a flexible communications module that can be configured to communicate to a wide range of protocols found in the extensive FieldServer Technologies library of protocols. The SlotServer is recognized as an input/output module by ControlLogix and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module.

Most protocols allow 2-way communication between SlotServer and the foreign device (some protocols are limited to one-way communication due to the limitations of the specific protocol).

SlotServer provides serial and Ethernet ports to enable ControlLogix interface to any of the BAS protocols available in the FieldServer driver library. Some examples of the protocols available to use with SlotServer include LonWorks, BACnet, Metasys N2 by JCI, Carrier, Caterpillar M5X, Cleaver Brooks, Data Aire, McQuay, TAC I/Net, Yorktalk, and more.

SlotServers are also available for most common fire alarm control panel protocols.
