BACnet bCX1 Controller/Router Series

BACnet
bCX1 Controller/
Router Series
The Andover ContinuumTM bCX1 Series is a series of Native BACnet
routers and controller/routers which heads up the BACnet family
of Andover Continuum controllers. These controllers reside at
the network level and route BACnet messages between BACnet/
IP, BACnet over Ethernet and MS/TP networks and can serve as
a BACnet Broadcast Management Device (BBMD) allowing for
routing of messages between IP networks.

BACnet bCX1 Controller/Router Series
Features
There are two basic bCX1 models: the
bCX1-R (Router Only) and the bCX1-CR
(Controller/Router). The bCX1-R model
provides all the functionality to route
messages between BACnet networks and
the bCX1-CR is a full-function BACnet
Building Controller (B-BC). The bCX1-CR
performs the routing functions of the
bCX1-R with the additional power of a
programmable controller with expansion
I/O capabilities.
PRODUCT AT A GLANCE
• B-BC — BACnet Building Controller available
in Router-only and Router/Controller combo
models
• Supports 18 BACnet object types including
Trends, Schedules, Calendars, and Loops
• Native BACnet/IP and MS/TP communications
for interoperability to third-party systems
• 10/100 Ethernet port
• BACnet Broadcast Message Device
(BBMD) support
• Expandable for local I/O and display using
xP Expansion Modules
• Advanced Flash Memory provides utmost
reliability — stores application program,
operating system, and run-time data
• Flash memory allows easy online software
updates
All BCX1 Models (BCX1-R and BCX1-CR):
Native BACnet
As Native BACnet controllers developed in strict
accordance with the ASHRAE 135-2004 BACnet
standard, the bCX1 can communicate directly with
other third partyBACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP
devices as well as all Andover Continuum BACnet
devices. The bCX1 also supports BACnet over
Ethernet, allowing devices that communicate with
the earlier versions of the BACnet Specification to
also communicate withBACnet/IP devices.
Easy Configuration
The bCX1 is designed with ease-of-installation
in mind. All configuration settings are done via
a standard web browser – set the IP address,
and save to Flash. All connections to the bCX1
series controller are accomplished with removable
connectors for easy installation, providing the ability
to pre-wire panels and service the unit simply.
LEDs provide troubleshooting information and
communication activity for all ports.
• Support for custom Embedded Web Server
• Support for 2nd Generation Andover
Continuum XDrivers
• BTL Listed B-AAC Controller with local Trends
BBMD Support
All bCX1 Series devices can be configured to
function as BACnet Broadcast Management
Devices, or BBMDs. It is the BBMD’s job to pass
BACnet broadcasts across IP/Routers to other IP
segments. As a result of having a BBMDs in place,
BACnet devicesare able to fully communicate via
the Internet.

Features (continued)
Advanced Flash Memory Management
The bCX1 Series uses non-volatile Flash memory
to store the operating system and application
programs. When a power loss in sensed, an
on-board battery maintains all logs, trends, and
other run-time data. When power is restored, both
application and run-time data are restored. Memory
backup or restore settings are configurable.
The Flash-based operating system simplifies
feature upgrades.

BTL Listed BACnet Building Controller (B-BC)
The bCX1-CR is listed with the BACnet Testing
Laboratories (BTL) as a BACnet Building Controller
or B-BC, with interoperability BACnet Data Sharing,
Alarm and Event Management, Scheduling,
Trending, and Device Management.
Programmable
The dynamic memory of the bCX1-CR can
be allocated for any combination of programs
and BACnet object (including Schedules,
Alarms, and Trends). Our powerful Plain English
programming language can directly reference
any BACnet object either locally or globally.
Our object-oriented Plain English, with intuitive
keywords, provides an easy method to tailor the
controller to meet your exact requirements. As
a programmable controller, the bCX1-CR can
locally support a wide range of BACnet objects,
including BACnet loops, trends, and schedules.
Plain English programs may be created to
program coordinated control strategies, giving
you the freedom to move data between third party
devices that do not have peer to peer functionality
provided in all Andover Continuum controllers.
Power Drawing
Embedded Web Server
With the power of Plain English, standard HTML
web pages can be created and embedded into the
bCX1-CR to provide a simple-to-use, browser-based
interface for monitoring or changing data points.
The embedded web pages are fully customizable
to meet any special customer requirements.

BACnet bCX1 Controller/Router Series
Features (continued)
Expansion I/O
The bCX1-CR contains an I/O expansion port for the
addition of up to two xP expansion modules directly
on the bottom of the controller. The xP family of
modules includes the xPDI8, xPDO2, xPDO4,
xPAO2, xPAO4, xPUI4 as well as the xPBD4 and
xPBA4 expansion modules, which can only be used
with the bCX1. In addition, the I/O bus supports the
xP Local Display Module, which allows the user to
view and change point values.
SNMP Alarming Support
All bCX1 controllers are compatible with SNMP
monitoring tools, which allow the controller to be
interrogated for basic SNMP information. The –CR
model features advanced SNMP alarm functionality
as an option (–SA), providing alarm delivery for any
device on the MS/TP network it manages.
XDriver Support
The BACnet bCX1 Controller/Router is available
with XDriver Support for 2nd generation Andover
Continuum XDrivers to interface with third-party
devices. (Note: This feature is not available on the
Router Only version.)
