    Confused Trane LON to BACnet

    Don't know how to start the question, but basically I have a site with about 15-20 RTU's and I'm wanting to utilize a Trane LON card for each unit but the rest of my site is Trend BACnet.

    Is there a product that can convert LON to MS/TP BACnet?

    I was involved in a project that had the same situation, ended up installing a JACE as a gateway between the Trane and our BACnet OWS.

    Still was not easy/pretty dut to 0% support from Trane.

    Loytec have a BACnet/Lon Gateway as well.

    Best of luck.

    FieldServer

    You can use a FieldServer to convert the two protocols.
