The Barix Barionet 50 is a fully programmable network controller for interfacing devices to open, IP-based networks. With the Barionet 50 contact closures and devices with serial ports can be network-enabled and easily controlled via web browser and standards-based automation systems.
Barionet 50 is a modular component that operates either stand-alone or with other units, web servers and control systems, thus capable of building large, intelligent, distributed systems for a wide variety of commercial control, monitoring, and home automation applications.
Four logical inputs and four relays interface to contact closures.
An expansion port connects to up to 32 Barix Modbus modules. A Dallas 1-Wire® interface supports up to 50 digital temperature sensors. Two asynchronous serial interfaces (1xRS-232, 1xRS-422/485) allow for the
connection of a wide range of additional I/O modules and smart sensors
from various manufacturers. The serial ports can also be used independently for tunnelling applications.
Common Applications are
- Monitoring, controlling, and interfacing devices to IP-based networks or central management systems in commercial, industrial, and home applications
- Access control, machine data collection, and environmental monitoring
- Monitoring contact closures
- Temperature sensing and logging
The Barionet 50 firmware provides fully documented interfaces, which support a variety of different communication methods: UDP and TCP, as well as higher-level protocols such as CGI, XML, and Modbus/TCP and SNMP (private MIB included in device).
The unit is programmable for stand-alone or connected operation in a powerful control language, enhanced with advanced functions for network communications. The language syntax is very similar to the well known Basic language, so most programmers can instantly craft interface solutions. The built-in web server can serve user specific pages, which can contain data generated by the control program or the various inputs.
