Offer functionality for configuration, monitoring, logging, security diagnostics, and updates.

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.

With support for 1,000 points, the Multiport Gateway can easily handle multiple protocol drivers and multiple translations simultaneously with no slowdown in performance. Its unmatched multi-protocol flexibility, ease-of-use, wide deployment, and world-class technical support make the Multiport Protocol Gateway a true Swiss Army knife of systems integration.

Multiport Protocol Gateway

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.
