Xenta® 913 is a LonWorks®-based gateway that provides a cost-effective way for integrating Vista® with other commonly used protocols such as BACnet® or Modbus®; the company can develop manufacturer-specific protocols on request, states the manufacturer. Key features of this gateway include Internet browser support to provide an alternative interface to monitor and control values; provides a secure Web interface for configuration with user name and password log on, and to configure the network, timeservers, and ports, the company says. In BACnet applications, the Xenta 913 acts as a gateway from LonWorks to any type 1 BACnet controller with RS-232 interface, and supports point-to-point BACnet read and write property messages. With Modbus, Xenta 913 uses poll-on-demand to extract data, RTY, or ASCII formats, and supports a variety of Modbus functions.
