Parker ProtoNode


P

arker Boiler provides a ProtoNode as an external, high performance, open protocol device for direct integration to Building Automation Systems (BAS) or other monitoring devices. Due to the fact that different protocals are widely used in the industry, a ProtoNode which converts the Modbus signal into other popular communication protocols.

How does it work?
The Parker ProtoNode Panel comes ready to run.  Software comes stored inside the device so set up is fast and easy.  Included with the device are utility software tools for network discovery, testing and configuration.  Complete installation and operation manual is included and phone and remote desktop support is available. A listing of the comprehensive Read and Read-Write points of the Parker product is provided.

Programming
Parker Boiler provides certain products with Modbus RTU open protocol for direct integration to Building Automation Systems (BAS) or other monitoring devices. Since other protocols are widely used in the industry, we are offering the ProtoNode Gateway which converts the Modbus into other popular communication protocols.

The ProtoNode is available to connect Parker Boiler Modbus equipped products to:

BACnet MSTP (RS-485) / BACnet IP (Ethernet) / Modbus TCP/IP (Ethernet) / Metasys N2 (RS-485) / LonWorks

The Parker Protonode has the ability to automatically support multiple known controller profiles.
Three methods of configuration:

Configuration Auto-Selector (via DIP switches)
Auto-Discover known devices
Profile selection via Web Configuration to load multiple configurations

Support one or many field protocols with a single ProtoNode. Supports up to 1,500 host and field protocol memory points
BACnet COV support provides fast data communication while reducing network traffic. Virtual nodes allow the ProtoNode to represent multiple devices on the network. Multi-client and multi-server support ensures interoperability between any Industrial and or Building Automation protocols.

Easy Configuration
Flexible and versatile multi-protocol Device Server on the market, with easy configuration auto-selector to select from pre-loaded defined configurations.

Certification & Support
BACnet BTL Mark for the ProtoNode RER. LonMark 3.4 Certified for ProtoNode LER.

BACnet COV support provides fast data communication while reducing the traffic over BACnet network. ProtoNode supports virtual nodes allowing multiple OEM controllers to connect to a single ProtoNode and seen as separate controllers on the various field networks.
