Omron FINS Gateway

Omron FINS Gateway

by sales.aus@protoconvert.com

Omron Fins to BACnet / Modbus  is highly powerful, superior, completely configurable and productive Building & Industrial Automation gateway for integrators to effortlessly interface devices to networks in commercial buildings and industrial plants.

This Gateway model supports Omron Fins, BACnet and Modbus protocols. It is a Bi-directional Converter that can be configured as a Client on Omron Fins side and a Server/Client on BACnet / Modbus protocol interface.

When configured as a Omron Fins client, the gateway can read data from your Omron Fins fire panel and publish it as BACnet / Modbus data. Also, it can write commands sent from the BACnet / Modbus side to the Omron Fins fire panel.

When configured as a BACnet / Modbus client, the gateway can read data from your BACnet / Modbus devices and publish it as Omron Fins type data. Also, it can write commands sent from the Omron Fins side to the BACnet / Modbus devices.

The gateway can be configured to behave as a server on BACnet / Modbus interfaces. This mode is useful when data exchange is required between a Omron Fins client (for eg. SCADA) and a BACnet / Modbus client
(for eg. a Building Management System).

The gateway can be configured to behave as a client on both Omron Fins and BACnet / Modbus interfaces.

These gateways have benefitted system integrators worldwide with its powerful line of gateways. Additionally, this gateway runs the same protocol conversion software on a productive and cost efficient platform backed by the experience, engineering expertise and technically proven support that integrators have come to expect from Omron Fins to BACnet / Modbus Converter.

Scenarios

Scenario 1

  • On a site you have several Schneider Ion energy meters that can provide data output on Omron Fins.
  • The site has a building management system on BACnet /Modbus that needs the energy data from the Schneider ion meters.
  • Since the Schneider ion meters provide data output on Omron Fins and the building management system understands BACnet / Modbus, a direct data exchange is not possible.

Solution:

The devices cannot directly communicate with each other as they are not on the same protocol. You need something that will convert data from BACnet / Modbus to Omron Fins and vice versa.

ProtoConvert’s  Omron Fins to BACnet / Modbus Converter will be an excellent solution for this requirement. The gateway reads data from the Energy meters on Omron Fins. It caches this data internally and then provides it on BACnet / Modbus when requested from the Building Management System.

 

Scenario 2

  • Omron Fins needs to read data from BACnet / Modbus based Thermostats.
  • On the other site we have Thermostats that can provide data output on BACnet / Modbus.
  • The site has a PLC on Omron Fins that needs the temperature data from thermostat on BACnet / Modbus.
  • Since the thermostats provide data output on BACnet / Modbus and the PLC understands only Omron Fins and direct exchange is not possible.

Solution:

The devices cannot directly communicate with each other as they are not on the same protocol. You need something that will convert data from BACnet / Modbus to Omron Fins and vice versa.

ProtoConvert’s  Omron Fins to BACnet / Modbus Converter will be an excellent solution for this requirement. The gateway reads data from the Thermostats on BACnet / Modbus. It caches this data internally and then provides it on Omron Fins when requested from the PLC.
