Up to 100 Modbus serial devices represented by up to 1000 polled points can share the single Modbus EIA-485 port on the BASgatewayLX. BACnet COV notification is supported on 200 points (100 Analog and 100 Binary points). The virtual routing feature in the BASgatewayLX allows each connected Modbus device to appear as an individual BACnet compliant device. What is needed is a device profile for each Modbus type device. Contemporary Controls maintains a library of common device profiles available for download in the Modbus Mapping Support Materials section.
