The Protocol Converter (FDS-PC) is a solution that enables communication between equipment and systems that employ differing protocols. The converter connects directly to equipment and converts the SNMP, BACnet, and Modbus protocols to one or more of these same protocols for integration into a building management system (BMS) or network management system (NMS). The protocol converter can be used in situations where data from monitored equipment is incompatible with the protocols used by the BMS or NMS, such as in cases where legacy monitoring systems are present. The ability of the protocol converter to accept up to 1,024 inputs over 32 modules means flexible integration with multiple alarm and management systems using one simple device.
