RLE Technologies announces the release of the Protocol Converter (FDS-PC), a solution that enables communication between equipment and systems that employ differing protocols. The Protocol 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 is ideal for 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.
“Our products are designed to provide true convergence, giving customers one centralized and intuitive way to deal with all the protocols that keep facilities running. We designed the Protocol Converter with these standards in mind. It’s an effective, cost-efficient solution that bridges the gap between varying equipment and management systems.” – Mike Orlich, CEO.
