Multiport Gateway

The FieldServer Multiport Protocol Gateway (FS-B35XX) is an extremely flexible tool for integrators looking to connect devices to the cloud and on different physical networks, using different links, and speaking different protocols.

Enjoy the benefits of the cloud connectivity through FieldPoP™. The EZ Gateway Modbus 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 that are available locally on the EZ Gateway. These applications offer functionality for configuration, monitoring, logging, security, diagnostics, and updates.

With support for 1,000 points (upgradable to 10,000), the Multiport Gateway can easily handle multiple protocol drivers and multiple translations simultaneously with no slowdown in performance. The product includes four serial connections (two RS-232, two RS-485), two 10/100 Ethernet ports, and a LonWorks (Free Topology - FT) port. The multiple ports and support for simultaneous protocol execution allow the Multiport Gateway to be used in the most complex integration scenarios. The availability of the second Ethernet port enables the integrator to connect a PC to download configuration changes without disturbing the system connections and without the additional cost of an external hub for the protocol gateway.

Multiport Protocol Gateway units can be configured in the field, with all the necessary instructions and software included with the product. If the user prefers the unit to be pre-configured prior to delivery, Sierra Monitor offers a custom configuration service.

The Multiport Gateway is approved across a variety of standards, including UL-916, CE, and RoHS. Protocol certifications include the BTL Mark, LonMark, and DNP3 Conformance. These approvals and certifications assure our customers that we carry only the highest quality of standards-compliant products.

With multi-protocol flexibility, ease-of-use, wide deployment, and world-class technical support, the Multiport Protocol Gateway is truly the Swiss Army knife of systems integration.
