Control Solutions’ Babel Buster BB2-7020 is a bindable LonWorks® node that functions as a client or server on a BACnet IP network. A large number of data objects gives you flexibility in mapping BACnt objects to scalar or structured LonWorks network variables. Multiple data objects may be mapped a single structured LonWorks network variable. Input, Output, and Value objects are supported for BACnet Analog, Binary, and Multi-state object types. Data objects associated with Network Variable Outputs will poll their assigned BACnet object at the interval you specify, and provide the BACnet data to the LonWorks network as an NV update. Data objects associated with Network Variable Inputs will receive their data from the LonWorks network as an NV update. The received data will be written to the assigned BACnet objects periodically or upon NV update (user selected). The BB2-7020 is most often used as a BACnet client, but it can operate as a server. This makes it possible to put LonWorks devices on a BACnet network (but does still require binding and network commissioning with LonMaker or equivalent). The BB2-7020 provides a “pool” of 300 objects which may be allocated by the user to the object types desired. Any mix of Analog, Binary, and Multi-state Input, Output, and Value objects may be allocated. Output objects are commandable and include the standard priority array found in commandable BACnet objects.
