Firmware Upgrade

For Firmware Upgrade: BASrouter — Version 2.7.11, please contact technical support. In version 2.7.11, the BASrouter's IP address, netmask and gateway address are able to be set from a DHCP server and we've added a webpage (/admin/cgi-bin/resetdefault.cgi ) to take the unit back to factory default (requires power cycle to take effect).

Product Overview

The BASrouter provides stand-alone routing between BACnet networks such as BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP-thereby allowing the system integrator to mix BACnet network technologies within a single BACnet internetwork. There are two physical communication ports on the BASrouter. One is a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port and the other an isolated MS/TP port. Configuration is accomplished via a web page.

Versatile Routing Between...

  • BACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP
  • BACnet Ethernet and BACnet MS/TP
  • BACnet/IP and BACnet Ethernet
  • BACnet/IP and BACnet Ethernet and BACnet MS/TP
  • Two BACnet/IP networks

IP Network Support

  • Web server for commissioning and troubleshooting
  • Communication diagnostic web page
  • BACnet/IP Broadcast Management Device (BBMD)
  • Foreign Device Registration (FDR)

Flexible Communications

  • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet with auto-negotiation and Auto-MDIX
  • Optically isolated MS/TP port
  • MS/TP baud rates range from 9.6-76.8 kbps
  • Jumper-selectable MS/TP bias and termination

Convenient Installation

  • 24 VAC/VDC (± 10%), 47-63 Hz input voltage
  • Din-rail mounted

The BASrouter is housed in a metal case that mounts on 35-mm DIN-rail and is powered from a 24 VAC/VDC (± 10%) source. There is one MS/TP port and one 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port.

The MS/TP port offers an optically-isolated transceiver. It has a removable 3-pin terminal block for the EIA-485 connection. Logically, 255 devices can be addressed. Physically, the number of devices depends upon device loading.

Up to 31 full-load EIA-485 devices can share the same MS/TP bus segment as the BASrouter. For half-load devices, there can be 62. All MS/TP standard baud rates are supported-from 9.6 to 76.8 kbps.

The Ethernet port offers a shielded RJ-45 connector. Through auto-negotiation and Auto-MDIX, it automatically matches connections to the attached equipment. Therefore, either straight-through or crossover CAT5 cable can be used for hook-up.

A resident web server allows for commissioning, and troubleshooting via a standard web browser. A reset switch is provided on the router to return the unit to the factory default IP address. Three LEDs are provided: The power LED glows green when proper power is provided. A bi-colour Ethernet LED glows green for 100 Mbps operation and yellow for 10 Mbps and indicates activity by flashing. A green LED flashes with MS/TP activity.

Internal MS/TP bias and termination jumpers allow flexible bias and termination options. They can be removed for mid-span installations.
