Using a single Xenta 913 as a gateway for both Modbus and BACnet

Issue

The Xenta 913 can only be used for both Modbus and BACnet at the same time if they are being used on separate ports or are both on the IP port. BACnet and Modbus can not both be used on the RS-485 A port at the same time.

Environment

  • Xenta 913
  • XBuilder
  • BACnet
  • Modbus
     

Cause

Only the Ethernet 10 Base-T port on a Xenta 913 may have more than one interface at a time.

Resolution

The Xenta 913 may interface with BACnet and Modbus at the same time only if:

  • The RS-485 A port is being used for Modbus and the Ethernet 10 Base-T port is being used for BACnet
  • The RS-485 A port is being used for BACnet and the Ethernet 10 Base-T port is being used for  Modbus
  • The Ethernet 10 Base-T port is being used for both BACnet and Modbus and the RS-485 A port is either unused or is being used for only BACnet or Modbus but not both

The Xenta 913 may not interface with both BACnet and Modbus if they are both connected to the RS-485 A port.
