    BACnet Device Simulator

    Overview

    Building automation OEMs are constrained by the lack of availability of comprehensive & officially certified tools to establish BACnet communication within their product offerings. Most of the available tools have not kept up with the continuously evolving BACnet standards.

    BACnet application development requires physical interface to BACnet devices to test applications in a real-time. Most often, interoperability and testing only occurs in the BACnet test lab at the time of certification or directly during field deployment. Due to this OEMs spend a significant amount of time and expense in troubleshooting BACnet integration into their devices and applications for market readiness.

    Solution

    Softdel’s BACnet Simulator (BOSS) brings comprehensive ability to effectively troubleshoot BACnet functionality and interoperability by simultaneous simulation of multiple virtual devices, properties and service configurations.

    It’s easy-to-use interface allows developers and systems integrators to configure, monitor and issue service commands to accessible physical and virtual devices on the BACnet network.

    Key Features

    CREATE VIRTUAL DEVICES

    •  Simulate virtual devices with different objects, along with property and service configurations on a single network

    •  Enable configuration of changing PVs for simulated objects

    •  Create a network of virtual BACnet devices for troubleshooting during development, integration, commissioning and interoperability testing with different device configurations

    DISCOVER and BROWSE

    •  Discover and browse BACnet devices on an accessible network. BBMD support enables device discovery across subnets

    •  Set and monitor property values of discovered device objects

    GENERATE SERVICE COMMANDS

    •  Simulate a deployed BACnet environment by configuring a custom set of BACnet service commands to generate periodic network traffic

    •  Capture and analyse the transaction log of issued service requests and responses

    MONITOR OBJECT PROPERTY VALUES

    •  Easily monitor any object property value for any virtual or discovered device to detect value changes and error responses

    MONITOR OBJECT PROPERTY VALUES

    •  Segmentation support, BBMD Support

    •  Backup and restore support

    •  Auto device configuration

    •  User configurable simulation of PVs

    •  Real time logging & monitoring of BACnet commands

    •  Auto command configuration
