Sontay wireless receiver is BACnet compatible

Sontay’s RF-BXS-B SonNet wireless BACnet receiver automatically maps data from SonNet end devices into BACnet objects for transmission via the vendor-independent BACnet IP communication protocol. The receiver collects data from devices on a wireless network — including measurements from sensors, link quality, battery levels for battery-powered devices, hours run for all devices and the current status of all devices. A web-browser interface can be used to configure this receiver if required.

These receivers can be used with Sontay RF-IOM radio-input/output modules, RF-RR powered routers and RF-RS battery-powered sensors.

Battery-powered sensors communicate directly with the receiver, but if the signal strength of a direct path is not sufficient for reliable communication, routers can be used. The sensors and routers automatically find the best path to the receiver. The receiver automatically selects which of 16 transmission channels gives the best radio network performance.

Date is transmitted to the receiver at configurable time intervals or on a configurable change in measured value. Sensors retain these configurations if the battery becomes discharged or requires replacement.
