Network & Integration Device
Network Device Used to Integrate BACnet® i-Vu® Building Automation System Controllers with non-Carrier Equipment Supporting BACnet, Modbus® and Lonworks® Protocols
The i-Vu Open Link allows you to integrate other manufacturer’s equipment into the i-Vu Open Control System. Support for BACnet, Modbus, and LonWorks protocols is standard, making it easy to tie in equipment such as VFDs, boilers, and lighting in order to complete your Carrier system. Each i-Vu Open Link module supports up to 500 third party BACnet, Modbus, or LonWorks points.
The i-Vu Open Link also provides BACnet routing capabilities between the i-Vu Open Control System backbone (BACnet/IP), and a subnetwork of Open controllers (BACnet MS/TP). It connects directly to the Ethernet LAN and provides access to a BACnet MS/TP network of Open controllers directly from an i-Vu Open web server that resides on the Ethernet. It also increases the capacity of the i-Vu Open Control System, allowing individual MS/TP networks (with up to 60 Open controllers each), to be connected together via the i-Vu Open Control System backbone.
