Firmware Updates and Application Notes from Contemporary Controls

Enhanced Functionality for BASgatewayLX
 
New firmware that provides enhanced security is available for the BASgatewayLX. The Modbus to BACnet gateway is a popular choice for systems integrators because of its ease-of-use and the availability of pre-defined profiles for devices like energy meters, boilers and chillers. Firmware 2.0.19 provides additional functionality and ease of use.
 
Thermostat Connection Using BACnet/IP Over a Wi-Fi Connection
 
The BASstat wireless communicating thermostats ensure effortless integration into BACnet/IP networks, but the performance of the Wi-Fi router/access point determines how many Wi-Fi clients such as the BASstat Wi-Fi thermostat can connect to it at a time.
 
IP Routers Features – Gateway Address and Masquerade
 
To send messages across different subnets using an IP router, the IP device provides the option to set a Gateway address. An incorrect Gateway address on the IP device is one of the most common setup issues when IP router features, such as Port Forwarding, Port Range Forwarding or NAT, don’t work as expected.
 
Using BASrouters and IP Routers to Communicate Across Subnets
 
A BACnet internetwork is different from multiple IP networks defined by subnets. An IP router connects these sub-netted IP networks together while two BACnet/IP networks can be interconnected using a BACnet router. The setup requires configuring both the IP router and BACnet routers appropriately. This configuration across subnets applies equally for access to remote sites across the internet.
