Product Announcement from Sierra Monitor Corporation
FieldServer Bridge is a protocol translator gateway which enables devices using one protocol to communicate with devices using another protocol.
An example is a fire alarm panel using a proprietary manufacturer's protocol needing to supply alarm information to a building automation system. In a single, comprehensive package the FS-Bridge provides the hardware and software necessary for this translation.
The FS-B2010-01 includes serial (RS232/RS485) and Ethernet (10BaseT) connectors to interface to the devices. Configuration files can be downloaded via the serial port or Ethernet port or with the integral IR and USB ports.
All the necessary software and instructions for configuration are supplied with the FS-Bridge. FieldServer Technologies also offers fee based configuration services. FS-Bridges are also available for various fieldbuses or multiple port applications.
