Chipkin Announces an Update to the CAS BACnet Stack - Enhanced Virtual Network BIBBs
Chipkin Automation Systems Inc. is proud to announce a much-anticipated update to the CAS BACnet Stack. This update provides added support for these BACnet BIBBs: GW-VN-B, GW-EO-B, NM-RC-B, and DM-RD-B.
Vancouver, Canada - May 21st, 2020 – Chipkin has added support for the following BACnet BIBBs:
● GW-VN-B - Virtual Network-B - Adds support for creating virtual BACnet networks.
● GW-EO-B - Gateway-Embedded Objects-B
● NM-RC-B - Router Configuration-
● DM-RD-B - ReinitializeDevice-
The above BIBBs are used in virtual networks of the CAS BACnet Stack.These virtual networks allow the CAS BACnet Stack to support serving multiple BACnet devices from one physical device. Each device is added to a BACnet network, and the CAS BACnet Stack supports unlimited virtual networks and unlimited devices. Real-World Example: Imagine a company that sells and installs wireless hotel room devices. This device detects the room humidity, and temperature, as well as provides an interface for the customer to input a desired temperature setpoint. These wireless devices report back the data to a base station. The hotel wants this data to be available as BACnet for their SCADA system. A gateway device is created using the CAS BACnet stack. The gateway then creates an interface for the BACnet SCADA system to read values of the wireless hotel room devices. Prior to this update, all of the BACnet data in Virtual Network-B (GW-VN-B) would be represented in a single BACnet device. Each room device's sensor would be represented as several BACnet objects.
