BACnet Controller With Extended Software Functions
WAGO has further streamlined its BACnet controller’s software. WAGO has streamlined the 750-830 controller, making system-wide integration and configuration even easier.
The latest version of the BACnet controller not only supports text messages, which are displayed in plain text on the management level, but also two additional object types: “Loop” for control algorithms and “Event Enrollment” for various alarm queries. Another new feature: the user can now create “Trend Log” and “Calendar” dynamic objects during runtime. This eliminates the need for a system reboot, as well as an external integrator, which is no longer required for this task. A device manager was also added to the BACnet Configurator, considerably simplifying object configuration and allowing tabular data processing.
Furthermore, the native operation of the BACnet 750-830 controller in which an appropriate BACnet object is generated automatically for each standard I/O signal has been optimized: Physical values in the form of analog input and output objects can now be scaled directly. Additional analog value objects are no longer required in CoDeSys, while considerably simplifying mass-processing of data points and integration into external systems.
