The ProtoCarrier enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to rapidly and easily add cloud connectivity and building and industrial automation protocol translation support to new and legacy devices, without the time and expense of redesigning hardware.
Enjoy the benefits of the cloud connectivity through FieldPoP™. The ProtoCarrier is FieldPoP-enabled, meaning all ProtoCarriers 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 custom web applications that are available locally on the ProtoAir. These applications offer functionality for configuration, monitoring, logging, security, diagnostics, and updates.
Sierra Monitor pre-programs the ProtoCarrier solution and maps each device to support the various protocols and configurations, including BACnet MS/TP, BACnet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, LonWorks, and many others. No software or configuration files are required to install the device in the field.
The ProtoCarrier is developed for OEMs seeking rapid deployment of field protocol solutions, but who are also not ready to redesign their hardware. It is designed to be a full-featured, field-programmable OEM protocol gateway with multiple protocol support for any protocol translation between Serial, Ethernet, or LonWorks environments. As an example, a manufacturer might have five different devices, each requiring a variety of protocols to meet their customer’s interoperability needs. They can find their single source solution with the multi-protocol, multi-configuration ProtoCarrier, which has all the pretested configuration choices preloaded.
The ProtoCarrier is BTL (BACnet Testing Laboratories) Marked, LonMark Certified, DNP3 Conformance Tested, and RoHS Compliant. These approvals and certifications assure our customers that we carry only the highest quality of products and performance.
