Carlo Gavazzi’s SB2WEB BACnet gateway for Dupline networks links all field-level devices, simplifies wiring and reduces the cost of building-automation systems at the device level. Integrating a Dupline network into the BMS environment is easily implemented. The versatile Dupline 2-wire bus network has simple I/O devices, many of which are powered by the bus itself. All these points can then be discovered by the BMS controller using BACnet.

An SB2WEB can manage up to seven Dupline networks, each managing over 400 data points, and includes an RS485 port for communications with energy meters to make all the electrical parameters as BACnet objects.

A Dupline network does not require special cabling. A standard unshielded 16 AWG cable can be used up to 5 km long. Bus and power cables can be run next to each other without fear of interference.
