Field Server Gateway

FS-B2510 A protocol translator gateway enables data transfer between serial and Ethernet protocols.

An extensive library of drivers provides easy interoperability between a variety of devices used in building automation, HVAC, fire and process control industries.

Dual Serial – Ethernet
The FS-B2510 FieldServer Gateway provides two serial ports and one Ethernet port making it ideal for interfacing either two serial devices or a serial to Ethernet connection. 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-B2510 provides the hardware and software necessary for this translation. The FS-B2510 includes two serial (switchable RS-232/RS-422/RS-485) ports and an Ethernet (10/100BaseT) connector to interface to the devices. Configuration files can be downloaded via Ethernet port. All the necessary software and instructions for configuration are supplied with the FieldServer.
