Software - OPC
The NETx BMS Server is a software solution that is responsible for collecting and processing data points from different building automation technologies. It provides a Modbus interface to integrate Modbus data points (Coils, Discrete Inputs, Holding Registers, Input Registers) via Modbus TCP. Native Modbus RTU devices can be connected via UDP/IP or TCP/IP via simple IP-to-RS485 converters. Drivers for other protocols (e.g., KNX, BACnet, SNMP, MICROS Fidelio/Opera, Protel, VingCard) are supported for bidirectional data exchange with Modbus. Using the build-in web server, web-based visualizations can be provided. Data can also be accessed by any third-party client using open management interfaces, such as OPC, BACnet.
