Raising bacnet to the next level

Raising BACnet® to the Next Level

Our approach to building automation
Our Approach to Building Automation

We believe all building automation devices including BACnet compliant devices should be accessible from an IP Infrastructure.

Building automation network hierarchy
Building Automation Network: Hierarchy

We see three layers plus the Internet. Sensors and actuators at the bottom, MS/TP and Modbus fieldbuses in the middle, and Ethernet at the top.

Our strategy put everything up on ip
Our Strategy – Put Everything up on IP

Raising communication up to Ethernet is key to our strategy

Wireless would represent the next step

PoE may become the preferred method when powering BAS devices in the field

We produce automation products that attach to IPnetworks

With structured wiring, the prominent cabling is CAT 5. Fieldbus wiring will become less attractive.

Bas router bacnet ip to bacnet ms tp
BAS Router: BACnet/IP to BACnet MS/TP

In order to communicate between BACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP a special router is needed. A standard IP router will not do. That is why we designed the BAS Router.

The same functionality as the BAS Router can be gained in the BAS Portable Router which is intended for connection to a laptop. It is useful for troubleshooting and commissioning a BACnet MS/TP network.

BAS Portable Router: BACnet/IP to BACnet MS/TP

Same functionality as the BAS Router

Receives power from a USB port on a laptop computer

Ideal for tools that commission or troubleshoot BACnet networks

Although powered from USB, communication is through Ethernet.

Bas router enhancements
BAS Router Enhancements

Add BACnet/IP Broadcast Management Device (BBMD)

Allows BACnet/IP systems to cross IP routers

Receives Foreign Device Registration requests

Add support for BACnet/Ethernet to MS/TP routing

Companies such as Alerton could use Ethernet and not IP

This feature allows for a greater range of applications

Add support for BACnet/IP to BACnet/Ethernet routing

Supports companies like Alerton with their BACnet/Ethernet equipment

Called a “one-arm router” since only one RJ-45 connector is used

BAS Remote – Versatile Web Appliance

One capability of the BAS Remote is that it can function as a Modbus master to attached Modbus serial devices such as power meters and drives.

A 2-wire Modbus serial port provides access to a wealth of Modbus I/O devices.

The BAS Remote I/O count can be increased by adding expansion modules

Motorized actuators are typically used to position dampers. Position feedback is sensed using an analog input on the BAS Remote.

Analog outputs source current to ground and therefore no loop power supply is required. The output burden can be as high as 750Ω.

Universal i o digital inputs
Universal I/O – Digital Inputs

Dry contact closure

Pulse inputs

Pulse input rates can be as high as 40 Hz. A typical application is meter reading or flow rate measurement. The BAS Remote will accumulate counts or determine pulse rate.

Relay contact outputs
Relay Contact Outputs

Two form “C” contacts

Contacts rated at 2 A and 30 VAC/VDC

Intended for Class 2 circuits

In order to switch higher loads or interface with Class 1 circuits, interposing relays are required. However, with a 2 A contact many loads can be driven directly.

Bas remote power requirements
BAS Remote Power Requirements



Half-wave rectified power

Although half-wave rectified power is less efficient, it allows for the sharing of power with other equipment. Interfacing of equipment is much easier since most equipment is not isolated from their power source. With full-wave rectified equipment, a dedicated transformer is required.

Expanding i o points in the field
Expanding I/O Points in the Field

In order to increase the I/O count without adding another Ethernet drop, up to three expansion modules can attach to one master module. Communications between master and expansion is done through a proprietary serial bus.

Master modules carry a BASR-8M part designation while expansion modules are identified as BASR-8X.

Bas remote expansion for additional i o
BAS Remote Expansion for Additional I/O

Same I/O count as the master – six universal I/O and two relay outputs

Instead of a MB Modbus serial gateway port there is an UP port that connects to the master

The DN port connects to and next downstream expansion module

The one cable solution power over ethernet
The One-Cable Solution: Power over Ethernet

Simply make a connection from a PoE compliant Ethernet switch port to the Ethernet port on the BAS Remote.

Both the BAS Remote and field devices can be powered from the data cable.

Saves from purchasing proprietary BAS cabling and the associated cost of installation. May gain you points towards “green” certification.

Same functionality as BAS Remote Master except no input power requirement!

Used to promote our “One Cable Solution”

Ideal when there is noconvenient source oflow-voltage power

Good for going Green!

The BAS Remote PoE can still provide 24 VDC power for field devices using a single PoE connection.

Bas remote enhancements
BAS Remote Enhancements

Introduce control

Sub-metering application

Modbus-BACnet gateway

Web Services

Add more BACnet services

Bas remote introduce control
BAS Remote – Introduce Control

As a remote I/O device the BAS Remote cannot make control decisions on its own. Control functionality can be gained by incorporating Sedona from Tridium.

Utilizes a graphical programming scheme similar to Niagara Framework

We are allowed to market the product as Niagara Ready after a certification process

Allows customers familiar with Niagara the ability to implement control loops within the BAS Remote

No additional programming tools needed if the system integrator already has Tridium’s Workbench

With Sedona, the BAS Remote can communicate using the SOX protocol with a JACE running Niagara Framework.

Sedona framework graphical programming
Sedona Framework – Graphical Programming

Tridium’s Workbench can be used to program Sedona running in the BAS Remote.

Building controller client residing on ethernet
Building Controller Client Residing on Ethernet

You need a client such as a B-BC in the system since the BAS Remote is only a server.

Fibre is recommended between buildings and copper within buildings.

Bas remote sub metering application
BAS Remote – Sub-metering Application

Sub-metering will become an important application as owners bill individual tenants for energy usage

Two ways of handling power measurement

Pulse meters that provide a pulse per each unit of energy

Modbus interface where calculations only need to be read

Modify the BAS Remote to directly handle sub-metering

Incorporate the new BACnet object for meter reading

Allow the customer to scale the meter through a web page

Handle multiple pulse or Modbus meters

Provide retentive memory in the event of a power outage

Maintain profiles of common Modbus meters in memory

Bas remote modbus to bacnet gateway
BAS Remote – Modbus to BACnet Gateway

Currently the BAS Remote can function as a Modbus TCP to Modbus serial router

Add Modbus serial to BACnet gateway in order to allow Modbus register to BACnet object mapping

Configuration through web page or product selection menu

Allows Modbus devices to be seamlessly treated as BACnet objects such as BO, BI, AO and AI

Bas remote web services
BAS Remote – Web Services

BACnet is great for those familiar with building automation systems but what about IT personnel?

Add web services functionality to the BAS Remote based upon BACnet/Web Services

Allows IT personnel to access BAS data using XML

Investigate a competing web services technology called oBIX

Bas remote add more bacnet services
BAS Remote – Add More BACnet Services

Add Foreign Device Registration which allows the BAS Remote to communicate through IP routers

Add Change-of-Value (COV) that will allow the BAS Remote to only report to a client any change in value of a point by more than a preset amount

Add Read-Property-Multiple (RPM) which allows for more efficient transfer of data
