The MGate 5217I Series comprise 2-port BACnet converter that can convert Modbus RTU/ACSII/TCP to BACnet/IP protocol. Depending on the size and the scale of the network, the BACnet gateway provides 600-point and 1200-point models. All models are rugged, DIN-rail mountable, operate in wide temperatures, and offer built-in 2kV isolation for serial signals. The MGate 5217I BACnet gateway support Modbus and BACnet/IP Protocol Traffic Monitor and Diagnostics for easy troubleshooting, especially during the installation stage. Communication issues could be caused by incorrect software parameters, such as the wrong slave ID and register address, or an incorrect command configuration. With Diagnostics, you can check the communication status and view values at a glance. With Modbus/BACnet Protocol Traffic Monitor, you can check the captured data and easily identify the root cause. Using network devices that are IEC 62443-4-2 compliant and equipped with basic security capabilities is an effective precautionary measure to ward off cyberattacks. The MGate 5217I Series BACnet converter is capable of several basic security capabilities, including password cracking defense, sniffer and data breach prevention, whitelisting, and the account management.
