The LGATE-902 Gateway is a powerful gateway that can host user specific graphical pages. The gateways provide connectivity functions to concurrently integrate CEA-709 (LonMark Systems), BACnet, KNX, Modbus, and M-Bus. Local operation and override is provided by the built-in jog dial and the backlit display (128x64 pixels). Device and data point information is provided by the Web interface and shown on the display via symbols and in text format.

LonMark Systems can be integrated via IP-852 (Ethernet/‌IP) or TP/‌FT‑10. LGATE-902 features an integrated Remote Network Interface (RNI) to access the TP/‌FT‑10 channel on the device via Ethernet/‌IP. BACnet integration is supported through BACnet/‌IP (Ethernet/‌IP) or BACnet MS/‌TP (RS-485). LGATE-902 ist BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) BTL certified and can be configured to be a BBMD.

In addition, the gateway provides connectivity to KNXnet/‌IP and Modbus (RTU/ASCII, TCP, Master or Slave). M-Bus and KNX TP1 device integration needs optional interface modules.

Through the built-in web server, all data points can be monitored and changed. The gateway functionality allows data communication between all communication technologies available on the device. Different technology data points are mapped through Local Connections on the device. The mapping of different technology data points on distributed devices is supported by Global Connections. The gateway also support Smart Auto-Connect™ – the automatic generation of connections to substantially reduce engineering efforts and cost. Math objects allow to execute mathematical operations on data points. All technology data points are automatically created as OPC XML-DA and OPC UA data points.

The LGATE-902 Gateway is equipped with two Ethernet ports. It can either be configured to use the internal switch to interconnect the two ports or every port is configured to work in a separate IP network.

When the Ethernet ports are configured for two separate IP networks, one port can be connected for instance to a WAN (Wide Area Network) with enabled network security (HTTPS) while the second port can be configure to be connected to an insecure network (LAN) where the standard building automation protocols like BACnet/‌IP, LON/‌IP, or Modbus TCP are present. These devices also feature firewall functionality of course to isolate particular protocols or services between the ports. The built-in VPN function provides for simple VPN setup and secure access to remote sites. The LTE-800 interface enables wireless access to remote sites through a mobile carrier.

Using the internal switch, a daisy chained line topology of up to 20 devices can be built, which reduces costs for network installation. The IP switch also allow the setup of a redundant Ethernet installation (ring topology), which increases reliability. The redundant Ethernet topology is enabled by the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), which is supported by most managed switches.

The L-GATE devices provide fully featured AST™ functionality (Alarming, Scheduling, and Trending) and can be integrated perfectly into the L-WEB System.

IoT Integration

The IoT function (Node.js) allows connecting the system to almost any cloud service, either for uploading historical data to analytics services, delivering alarm messages to alarm processing services or operating parts of the control system over a cloud service (e.g., scheduling based on Web calendars or booking systems). Processing Internet information such as weather data in forecast-based control is also possible. Finally, the JavaScript kernel also allows implementing serial protocols to non-standard equipment in primary plant control.
