The 460BSTCP moves data between up to 10 Ethernet TCP/IP devices
and a BACnet/IP Building Automation System (BAS). It’s a perfect tool to tie
Ethernet TCP/IP weigh scales, drives, barcode readers, sensors and other
devices into your BACnet/IP Building Automation System. It’s also a
effective tool to tie your BAS to ASCII based PC controllers and loggers.
Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes
with 5 year warranty.
How Do I Use the 460BSTCP in My Application?
For most applications the mapping is very straight forward. ASCII data in
TCP/IP packets are parsed into up to 50 segments. You give each segment
and data type and then map it to BACnet/IP as analog and binary values.
BACnet/IP objects can be concatenated into a string and then deliver to a
TCP/IP device. The gateway can add or remove delimeters to limit the work
you need to do in your controller.
It’s really that simple. Need to modify your data as it passes from one protocol to the other? No
problem. Each data mapping you apply can be modified with up to 3 mathematic functions.
Why use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
The 460BSTCP provides an option to access Ethernet TCP/IP devices on your BACnet/IP Client.
While there are certainly a number of other companies offering stand alone gateways, there is no
one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.
When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest
answers and recommendations even if that means recommending someone else's solution. When
you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and support
doesn't require a ticket or 24 hour wait. We are unashamed of the fact that we are a smaller
company because that means you mean a lot more to us.

A Word from our Founder
“It’s likely that your business isn’t industrial networking and it shouldn’t be. You make products, design systems, or
manage some process. Whatever it is that you make, monitor or install the process inevitably creates data. If
you’re a control engineer and your plant has been around for a few years your line is probably littered with devices
that send out all kinds of data over many different protocols. If you’re an automation device developer you probably
have customers that need to move your data into some other network. Either way, you’ve got a device conversion
problem. You have devices that generate ASCII , Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, BACnet, Profinet, Profibus, Ethernet
TCP/IP , Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet or some other completely proprietary data and now you’re the person that has to
move that data to some other network! I feel your pain… and rather than just my sympathy, I have a solution for
you. You see, while your business may not be moving data around a factory floor mine is. In fact, it’s all that we
have done for over twenty years now. Our 460 series of Device Converters is the culmination of those twenty
years. You can now move all of your data, where you want, when you want and how you want. Try us on your next
project, I guarantee you wont regret it.”
