The device is designed to allow LON and BACnet to communicate simultaneously over the Free Topology (FT) channel.
The FT 6050 Smart Transceiver allows BACnet workstations and LON network manager and integrator tools to field-configure and monitor controllers as either LON or BACnet devices, or both. This enables a flexible architecture that takes advantage of the fault-tolerant FT media. The FT 6050 enables differentiated architectures and therefore fewer SKUs are required.
The FT 6050 Smart Transceiver SoC is supported in both LON and BACnet configurations by Adesto’s SmartServer IoT, an open and extensible industrial edge server that supports multiple protocols and applications.
New enhancements to the FT 6050 include native support for all BACnet features, as well as memory architecture enhancements for larger, higher fidelity applications.
