BAS Portable Router BACnet/IP to MS/TP
The Portable BASrouter is a compact BACnet multi-network router which provides versatile standalone routing between BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet (ISO 8802-3), and BACnet MS/TP networks. This portable BACnet router is easy to carry, web page configurable and it is powered by any 5 VDC source through it’s USB connection, such as the USB port of your laptop computer. It is a great commissioning and/or troubleshooting device with BACnet diagnostic capabilities. BACnet MS/TP “Status” webpage with graphical table of present MS/TP device status and network statistics, in addition to a BACnet/IP “Routing” webpage with a discoverable routing table become useful when setting up or troubleshooting a BACnet network.
I have several routers from Contemporary Control for BACnet networks. I took a portable BASRTP-B for our temporary office because it will be easy moving it between workplaces in the future. The router has a 100 Mbps Ethernet and an isolated MS/TP port. The installation went smooth with just my laptop. Thankfully, I didn't have to waste a full day reconfiguring IP addressed and ports thanks to an automatic DHCP feature.
