Controlling a BACnet RT via GW-BAC1

Recommended Posts

I have YABE running on my PC and it does not see my GW-BAC1 but it does see other BACnet devices. Should YABE see a standalone GW-BAC1 or does the GW-BAC1 need to be controlled by an HMI to become active? Here's the config details:

 

UniBACnet Configurator

Protocol: BACnet IP

Port 47808

One Device Instance: 0 with name Node1

One Descriptor: Analog Input

Modbus connection: Modbus IP

I am trying to control a BACnet device via a GW-BAC1 gateway but it doesn't work. The device has 8 digital outputs and 8 digital inputs. See the attached YABE display. I am just trying to control the first digital output. Does any of the information in the YABE display go into the GW-BAC1 config file?

Here's my config file:

Hello SoCalJIm,

I do not understand what are you trying to achieve, if you have our GW-BAC1, it need to have a controller to control it.

BACnet will not configure itself. you have to follow the procedure how install it properly. the User Guide is attached.

Good Luck.
