BACnet driver

C

Chris

Hi,

BACnet is a protocol used for Building Automation which might be a useful addition to the Linux PLC.

I have written a gateway for BACnet, Modbus, Carrier and Atlas systems which runs on Windows NT and I am considering moving this onto Linux. It's been written in C++ and can be found at http://www.scadaengine.com

If I adopt the same principle, then you could use the PLC as a gateway as well as a controller.

If anyone thinks it might be useful, then let me know and I'll try and move my code over.

Chris

Hi Chris,

I sure think it would be useful. I sugest you move your code over to the linuxplc cvs. Make yourself one directory for each protocol under the /io directory (/io/BACnet , /io/Carrier, ...). Note we already have a driver for modbus.

If you have any doubts on how to integrate it into the linuxplc code, just ask.

Dan, do you think you could get Chris a login on the cvs?

Cheers,

Mario.

Seconded.

You will be one of the first to use the linuxplc library from C++; there shouldn't be a problem, but you might have to put in some of the
conditional extern "C"'' things into the .h files as you go.

(Of course, ideally you'd want a C++ wrapper that uses C++ idioms such as classes and overloading, but it doesn't exist yet.)

I would find this very useful. I tried hitting your web site but came up empty. Please let me know how I might get in touch with you and potentially get access to your driver.

Hi Chris! I'm interested in this BACnet topic! I've checked the repository, but I can't find the BACnet driver. I would like to ask your driver if it is possible or contact with you. My email is [email protected] Lajos
