KNX to BACnet Gateway using Maestro
We are glad to announce that Maestro now incorporates also the BACnet Server capability.
BACnet is a world communication standard for Building Automation and Control (BAC). More and more Building Management Systems (BMS) use BACnet / IP as a communication backbone network for their control systems. It is based on a Client / Server architecture where the peripheral units function as Servers and the control unit functions as a Client. This new functionality of Maestro, supporting Server capability, enables to use Maestro as a KNX to BACnet Gateway making it possible for the BMS to control and monitor the KNX.
With just simple Drag& Drop actions the integrator can create BACnet objects from any KNX Group Addresses as he likes. He can do so also for any other existing objects coming from Maestro such as data from Modbus, MQTT or any other connected equipment to Maestro, even internal variables that are used for Maestro’s internal logic.
The Client can initiate a ‘Discovery’ command to receive the Object list from Maestro and then Maestro enables the Client to take full control of the BACnet Object including the value change of Polling and Subscription to ‘Monitoring Value Changes’. No limit to the number of Objects that can be produced by Maestro.
This gateway solution between KNX and BACnet adds to a wide breadth of other innovative solutions for the KNX market proving CD Innovation‘s dedication and commitment to its professional channels everywhere since 2006.
