The L‑INX Automation Servers LINX‑215 are programmable automation stations with integrated graphical visualization for central automation tasks in BACnet and LonMark networks. They can integrate physical I/Os through L‑IOB I/O Modules via LIOB‑Connect, LIOB‑FT, or LIOB‑IP. Local operation and override is provided by the built-in jog dial and the backlit display (128x64 pixels). Device and data point information is shown on the display via symbols and in text format.
LonMark Systems can be integrated via IP‑852 (Ethernet/IP) or TP/FT‑10. In addition, the Automation Servers provides connectivity to concurrently integrate KNX, Modbus, and M‑Bus and connect as a gateway data points of different technological origin. The Automaton Servers feature an integrated IP‑852 router providing the complete feature set of corresponding L-IP devices.
BACnet can be integrated via BACnet/IP or BACnet MS/TP. In addition, the Automation Servers provide connectivity to concurrently integrate KNX, Modbus, and M‑Bus and connect as a gateway data points of different technological origin. Optionally, mathematical objects can be applied within a connection to calculate the data point output values depending on the formula used. The Automaton Servers feature a BACnet/IP router including BBMD as well as Slave-Proxy functionality. LINX‑215 is BTL certified as B-BC (BACnet Building Controller).
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. L‑INX Automation Servers also support Smart Auto-Connect™ – the automatic generation of connections to substantially reduce engineering efforts and cost. All technology data points are automatically created as OPC XML‑DA and OPC UA data points.
