Bacnet IP Slave
If you have a Bacnet slave device that you would like to link to the platform, that is now possible. In our example here, we will be adding a local air quality sensor that we have in the building. Our driver has already been setup. Go to your iqnexus marketplace, select your driver and select ‘New device’ from the action menu:
Once on the create device screen, you will see this assuming you have your driver setup correctly:
We can see a couple of new fields, and we will go through them.
This is a button, and once pressed it will show you the following screen:
From here you can either select your bacnet device from the list, or, if it’s not found, you can manually enter the IP Address, Instance ID and port of your Bacnet device.
Bacnet Poll Polling Rate (seconds)
This defines the amount of seconds between each interval. So if you set this to 30, it will request the data from the sensor every 30 seconds. The value entered here will be rounded up and can be a multiple of 10, so a value of 43 will be checked every 50 seconds.
Save the device. After the interval you selected on the screen the device will start showing data in the logs.
