EZ Gateway M-Bus to Modbus and BACnet
The Quick and Easy M-Bus to Modbus and BACnet Solution
The EZ Gateway M-Bus to Modbus and BACnet is an easy to use, high-performance building and industrial automation protocol gateway for integrators to interface M-Bus products to Modbus and BACnet management systems in commercial buildings, campuses and industrial facilities over Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP/IP, BACnet MS/TP or BACnet/IP protocols. M-Bus products encompass a wide range of applications such as energy, gas, heating, water, VFD drives and PLCs. M-BUS to Modbus and BACnet protocol translations include:
- M-Bus to Modbus RTU
- M-Bus to Modbus TCP/IP
- M-Bus to BACnet/IP
- M-Bus to BACnet MS/TP
The EZ Gateway M-Bus to Modbus & BACnet combines field-hardened M-Bus, Modbus and BACnet protocol drivers with an easy to use configuration interface that, once configured, allows M-Bus devices to be presented as virtual BACnet devices which simplifies commissioning, configuration and troubleshooting. The intuitive web-based interface allows configurations to be built in the field or in the office. Additionally, the configuration profiles can be downloaded and then uploaded to other FieldServer M-Bus applications, simplifying the commissioning and integration process on repeatable applications.
Sierra Monitor’s M-Bus Explorer and Profile Loader apps allow each M-Bus device to be auto-discovered, templatized and presented to quickly configure new M-Bus devices. This makes each corresponding M-Bus device into a virtual BACnet device within the EZ Gateway, thereby providing granular visibility and control over each device from within a BACnet management framework. For example, offline / online status is visible at the individual M-Bus device level.
With the EZ Gateway M-Bus to Modbus & BACnet, the integrator or contractor does not need to be a protocol expert, and can minimize configuration and commissioning time, while also reducing ongoing operating and maintenance costs.
Accessing the EZ Gateway Through FieldPoP
Enjoy the benefits of the cloud connectivity through FieldPoP™. The EZ Gateway KNX to BACnet is FieldPoP-enabled, meaning all EZ Gateways can be registered to FieldPoP, Sierra Monitor’s device cloud for the IIoT.
The FieldPoP web interface lets users remotely access, in a secure fashion, the FS-GUI and configuration web applications that are available locally on the EZ Gateway. These applications offer functionality for configuration, monitoring, logging, security, diagnostics, and updates.
