BACet is the most widely used protocol in building automation. Megachips and Gesytec are currently engaged in implementing a transmission of BAcnet via HD-PLC. A BACnet stack for the MegaChips HD-PLC CPU is implemented.
With BAcnet/IP over HD-PLC first solutions are available that use Gesytec’s HD-PLC Core and are also executable on the eShark Development Kit. For example solutions can be realized that use HD-PLC instead of BACnet/MS-TP for transmission with the same cable. This overcomes the RS485 and MS-TP common problems and allows you to transmit Ethernet over the same line at the same time.
With our HD-PLC Core and the eShark Development Kit you can create native BACnet/HD-PLC solutions, our HD-PLC DIN rail bridge is then the BACnet router for HD-PLC.
