i-Vu® XT BACnet® Link
XT-LB

Network & Integration Device

The i-Vu® XT BACnet link allows you to integrate other manufacturers’ equipment into the i-Vu® building automation system using the BACnet protocol, making it easy to tie in equipment such as VFDs, boilers, and lighting systems. Each i-Vu® XT BACnet link supports up to 1,500 third party BACnet points.

The i-Vu® XT BACnet link also routes BACnet messages between the i-Vu® building automation system backbone (BACnet/IP), and a subnetwork of i-Vu® controllers (BACnet MS/TP and/or BACnet ARCnet). It connects directly to the Ethernet LAN and provides the i-Vu® web server with access to the entire i-Vu system.

The i-Vu® XT BACnet link also extends an i-Vu® system, allowing individual BACnet MS/TP networks (with up to 60 controllers each), and BACnet ARCnet networks (with up to 99 controllers each), to be connected together via the i-Vu® building automation system backbone.
