HMS Networks announces an Intesis protocol translator that integrates between EtherNet/IP and BACnet IP/MSTP-based building management systems (BMS), making it easy to bring data from a factory network to a BMS.

When trying to connect multiple factory and building installations, system integrators often struggle as not all systems communicate using the same protocol. BACnet is mostly used in building automation applications like HVAC, lighting controls and access control, while EtherNet/IP is used in PLCs and networks within industrial automation.

With the Intesis protocol translator from HMS Networks, system integrators can easily integrate any Ethernet/IP-based PLCs, such as Rockwell Allen-Bradley PLCs models, with any BACnet BMS. The gateway offers bidirectional communication between EtherNet/IP PLCs and BACnet controllers. Anybus CompactCom and Intesis communication technologies are used for industrial and building-oriented communication respectively.

With a capacity of up to 1200 data points, the gateway is a BACnet IP/MSTP server/slave on one side and an EtherNet/IP adapter on the other, featuring independent Ethernet ports. The gateway has been BTL certified for BACnet and carries the UL mark. It is also ODVA pre-certified due to its in-built Anybus CompactCom module.

The free Intesis MAPS configuration tool for all Intesis protocol translators offers an intuitive configuration process for system integrators. MAPS helps integrators in their projects by providing valuable EDE files for the BACnet integration, as well as EDS files and configuration reports for usage in EtherNet/IP PLC configuration tools like Rockwell’s Studio 5000 software.
