This is a bit of wishful thinking. I am still new to the communication side of controls.
I work at a very large facility where we are trying to get controls on all HVAC and lighting, plus metering. The metering is the first phase. Communication is not available at all locations or not cost effective. We have a radio network that allows solid digital communication, facility wide. Is there any device that anyone knows of that can use a spare "walkie-talkie" channel to transmit and receive BACnet or Modbus over the air and convert it into an electrical signal? The installed meters operate on Modbus but could easily be converted to BAC net. I assume that these protocols would use the least bandwidth. If this is possible I assume I can just input the signal into a JACE or XL800 type device at the main radio hub.
I apologize in advance for misuse of jargon and knowledge. I was an electrician 1 year ago and now I'm a Building Automation/Energy Auditing tech and am trying to get up to speed ASAP.
