Innotech IG04 BACnet Gateway for Vaisala Weather Transmitter or Ultrasonic Wind Sensor

Overview

The Innotech IG04 BACnet Gateway is a protocol gateway between the Vaisala Weather Transmitter or Ultrasonic Wind Sensor and a BACnet network.

The Innotech IG04 BACnet Gateway is a protocol gateway between the Vaisala Weather Transmitter or Ultrasonic Wind Sensor and a BACnet network.

The IG04 has the ability to program the weather transmitter without the need for additional software.

The IG04 BACnet Gateway interrogates the Vaisala device and stores the current values for all NMEA points. This data is updated and transmitted regularly as predefined BACnet objects available as BACnet/IP or BACnet MS/TP values. No mapping or configuration tools are required to program the IG04 BACnet Gateway.

Once the Vaisala transmitter is configured and connected to the IG04, they will commence communicating. The weather data can then be viewed directly from the embedded weather page on the IG04. The BACnet Objects are available for integration into your BMS project.

The IG04 BACnet Gateway is a cost effective solution for Building Automation Systems required to monitor and analyse data transmitted from the Vaisala Weather Transmitter and into BACnet enabled devices.

The IG04 BACnet Gateway communicates directly with the Vaisala Weather Transmitter by means of a dedicated RS-485 communications channel.

A dedicated Ethernet Port provides access to BACnet/IP data and an embedded web-server interface. This web-server interface is used for commissioning and utilises HTML and a JAVA application called FusionLIVE.

The IG04 BACnet Gateway provides seamless integration with the Weather Transmitter via automated creation of all BACnet Objects. No mapping or configuration tools are required to program the IG04 BACnet Gateway.
