Introduction
BACnet (Building Automation and Control Networks) is a communication protocol commonly used in building automation systems to enable interoperability between devices from different manufacturers. BACnet facilitates data exchange and control among various building equipment such as HVAC systems, lighting, and security systems.
 
Modbus is a serial communication protocol widely used in industrial automation and building automation. It is typically employed for data transmission and control between different types of sensors, actuators, and controllers.
 
IEC 60870-5-104 is a communication protocol used in remote monitoring and control systems, particularly in the field of power systems and distribution automation. IEC 104 protocol supports efficient data transmission and real-time control, meeting the requirements of applications demanding high communication speed and reliability.
 
Integrating these three communication protocols (such as connecting BACnet and Modbus to IEC 104) typically requires the use of gateways or protocol converters to facilitate data conversion and communication between different protocols. By utilizing appropriate hardware and software devices, it is possible to achieve data exchange and integration between different protocols, enabling interoperability and enhanced functionality within the system.

 
Product Description
BE104 serves as an intermediary for communication between systems using BACnet, Modbus, and IEC 104 protocols. This gateway facilitates the conversion of data between the different protocols, allowing devices using BACnet and Modbus to communicate with those using the IEC 104 protocol.
 
BE104 typically acts as a translator, converting the data formats and structures from BACnet and Modbus to the format required by the IEC 104 protocol, and vice versa. It enables seamless integration and interoperability between devices and systems that use these different protocols, enabling them to exchange data and commands effectively.
 
By implementing a BE104 gateway, organizations can integrate diverse building automation and control systems, industrial automation equipment, and power distribution systems that utilize these various protocols. This facilitates centralized monitoring, control, and management of interconnected devices, enhancing overall system efficiency and functionality.
