The ProtoNode LonWorks is an external, high-performance, low-cost building automation and industrial IIoT gateway for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that provides manufacturers connectivity to the cloud and instant multi-protocol deployment of field protocols, enabling new or legacy devices to easily interface with other protocols.
OEMs can enjoy the benefits of the cloud connectivity through FieldPoP™. The ProtoNode is FieldPoP-enabled, meaning all ProtoNodes 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 ProtoNode. These applications offer functionality for configuration, monitoring, logging, security, diagnostics, and updates.
The ProtoNode LonWorks protocol gateway includes a LonWorks port in addition to the Ethernet port and a RS-485, RS-422, KNX, or M-BUS port.
With the ability to automatically support multiple known controller profiles, the ProtoNode LonWorks is the instant answer to a manufacturer's needs to meet customer demands. In addition to having access to Sierra Monitor's library to over 140 protocol drivers, the ProtoNode LonWorks easily supports OEM's custom proprietary host serial or Ethernet protocols. It also has the ability to simultaneously be a protocol gateway and a BACnet MS/TP to BACnet/IP router.
The ProtoNode LonWorks is LonMark Certified. This approval assures our customers that we carry only the highest quality of products and performance.
