The EZ Gateway is an easy-to-use Modbus to BACnet solution. As a high-performance gateway, it can be used to interface Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP devices to BACnet MS/TP or BACnet/IP systems in commercial and industrial facilities. It can be commissioned quickly to integrate into a facility`s safety solution. The 'EZ Profiles' innovation slashes configuration and installation times. An EZ Profile is a convenient mapping file that defines a relationship between a Modbus register and a BACnet object, and allows the installer to configure the gateway quickly. A second significant innovation is 'DeviceProxy,' a unique ability to represent each Modbus device as a virtual BACnet device on the EZ Gateway. This virtualization capability allows the Modbus devices to be easily managed and reconfigured as though they are native participants in the BACnet management framework.
