More About Routers
We carry four different routers to help your HVAC system run wirelessly.
How do routers work in HVAC systems?
A traditional router forwards data from one device to another in a network. The router helps carry the data over a wireless network.
Because so many consumers now want smart HVAC systems, you can also use a router to operate your heating and cooling wirelessly in your home.
What Routers Does Blackhawk Supply Carry?
Blackhawk Supply provides four different routers for your HVAC projects. They are all manufactured by Contemporary Controls and run on a BACnet/IP and BACnet/MSTP family of communication protocols.
The routers operate on a standard 10/100 Mbps Ethernet connection. They also offer IP network support to help you navigate any challenges you have running a wireless network.
The four routers we carry are below.
BACnet Router – This is a generic router that transfers data from the BACnet/IP to BACnet/MSTP protocols. The BACRouter works on DIN rail mounts for industrial projects.
BASRT-B- The BAS Router offers BACnet/IP to MS/TP communication transfers. It also has a DIN rail mount and has a 24 VAC/VDC power source to operate the router. The router can host up to 255 devices depending upon the device loads.
BASRTP-B- The BAS Portable Router sends messages between the BACnet/IP to MS/TP protocols in accordance with the ANSI/ASHRAE 135 (ISO 16484-5) standard. You can connect the BASRTP-B to any laptop.
BASRTLX-B- A high-performance BACnet multi-network router. The 24 VAC/VDC power source for the BASRTLX-B has a half-wave rectified power supply that allows the device to share power with other half-wave devices.
Our routers offer you the flexibility to set up a wireless network for your next HVAC project.
