BASrouterLX High Performance BACnet Router

BASrouterLX - High Performance BACnet Router


Product Overview

The BASrouterLX is a high-performance BACnet router providing stand-alone routing between BACnet networks such as BACnet/IP, BACnet Ethernet, and BACnet MS/TP. Besides its high-speed processor, it has advanced features such as auto-discovery of MS/TP slaves, MS/TP frame capture and storage for use with Wireshark®. Up to 50 BBMD entries can be made. The BASrouterLX has three physical communication ports - a 10/100 Mbps BACnet/IP Ethernet port, an optically isolated EIA-485 port for MS/TP, and a USB port for future use. Router configuration is accomplished via a web page.

Flexible Communications

  • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet with auto-negotiation and Auto-MDIX
  • Auto-discovery of MS/TP slaves
  • Optically isolated MS/TP port
  • MS/TP baud rates range from 9.6 - 115.2 kbps

Convenient Installation

  • 24 VAC/VDC (± 10%), 47-63 Hz input voltage
  • DIN-rail mount (BASRTLX-B) or panel mount (BASRTLX-B/P)

The BASrouterLX is housed in a metal case that mounts on 35-mm DIN-rail and it is powered from a 24 VAC/VDC (± 10%) source. Its half-wave rectified power supply allows sharing of power with other half-wave devices. There are three ports on the unit-one Ethernet, one EIA-485 and a USB port.

The optically-isolated EIA-485 serial port allows for connection to either 2-wire or 3-wire MS/TP networks using a removable 5-pin terminal block. Up to 31 full-load or 62 half-load EIA-485 devices can share the serial bus at data rates between 9.6 and 115.2 kbps. Internal jumpers provide120 O termination and bias. These jumpers can be removed for mid-span installations.

The Ethernet port offers a shielded RJ-45 connector. Through auto-negotiation and Auto-MDIX, it automatically matches connections to the attached equipment.Thus, either CAT5 straight-through or crossover cable can be used to attach to the BACnet/IP network at either 10 or 100 Mbps speed.

MS/TP slave devices are assessable using either Manual Slave Address Binding or Automatic Slave Discovery. MS/TP slaves can be addressed throughout the complete MS/TP range.

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. Five LEDs are provided: the power LED indicates that proper power is provided. Two Ethernet LEDs indicate link status, data activity, data rate and duplex. Two EIA-485 LEDs indicate transmission and reception of data.
