Johnson Controls, Inc. announces the release of the TL-BRTRP-0 router, which is a small, economical, portable BACnet/IP to MS/TP router.
This new portable router is intended to be used as a hard-wired connection interface between a BACnet/IP-based software tool and BACnet MS/TP-based controllers. You use the TL-BRTRP-0 router as a connection interface between:
Facility Explorer FX07, FX14, and FX16 BACnet Field Controllers and FX CommPro BACnet software (directly replaces the LP-KIT204-000C)
Facility Explorer Programmable Controllers (FX-PCs) and the Facility Explorer Programming & Commissioning Tool (FX-PCT)
Metasys® Field Equipment Controllers (FECs, VMAs, and IOMs) and the Controller Configuration Tool (CCT)
CCT must be at Release 5.3 or later to support the BACnet routing connection.
The TL-BRTRP-0 Portable BACnet Router does not require batteries or a transformer for power. Instead, it is powered via a USB connection to your computer. A USB cable is provided.
The TL-BRTRP-0 router features the following two methods for making the field connections to the BACnet MS/TP trunk wiring:
RJ-11 connector: the pinout of this RJ-11 connector connects to the multi-headed cabled included with the LP-KIT200-000C RS-232 to RS-485 N2 converter.
FX-PCs and MS-FECs support a BACnet router connection only at the field controller (FC) bus, not at the sensor actuator (SA) bus.
