EnNET® for BACnet is a BACnet to XML Web Services server specifically designed to allow local and remote BACnet networks, including controllers and other BACnet compliant devices to seamlessly interoperate with corporate business systems. Bi-directional access to BACnet networks is made possible via a firewall friendly XML Web Service transported over HTTP(S). This real-time XML Web Service supports the full range of BACnet functionality, including direct control, schedules, calendars and trend logs. Users can reduce network traffic normally associated with BACnet’s broadcast messaging by using EnNET’s unique directed I.P. communications. EnNET for BACnet is designed to run on LINUX or Windows NT/2000/XP, and is sold as standalone software or on a handy OEM integration board or gateway appliance.

Built using IT standards like the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML Web Services, EnNET for BACnet fully supports the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and directly interoperates with .NET, J2EE, and business systems middleware frameworks like Microsoft’s BizTalk™ and IBM's WebSphere®.


Gridlogix Adds Modbus™ to its XML Web Services EnNET® Framework

Gridlogix has added to its system integration line-up with the introduction of a full-featured XML Web Services based Modbus Master. By implementing Gridlogix’ IT friendly interface to energy management, building management and manufacturing automation, businesses will be able to use their existing ERP or asset management systems, and allow outside equipment suppliers to remotely access facility operational data on an ad hoc basis and use that data to lower the overall cost of the facility operations.

EnNET® for Modbus is a Modbus RTU Master specifically designed to allow local and remote Modbus Slave devices to seamlessly interoperate with corporate business systems. Real-time Modbus data is made available to the enterprise via a firewall friendly XML Web Service transported over HTTP(S). The real-time XML Web Service supports 254 connected devices. It also provides local data logging of multiple Modbus registers on any connected device, on user specified intervals. EnNET for Modbus is designed to run on LINUX or Windows NT/2000/XP, and is sold as standalone software or on a handy OEM integration board or gateway appliance.

Built using IT standards like the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML Web Services, EnNET for Modbus fully supports the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and directly interoperates with .NET, J2EE, and business systems middleware frameworks like Microsoft’s BizTalk™ and IBM's WebSphere®.


Gridlogix Adds OPC to its XML Web Services EnNET® Framework

CatNet Systems Gridlogix has added to its industrial integration line-up with the introduction of a full-featured XML Web Services based OLE for Process Control (OPC) Server. By implementing Gridlogix’ IT friendly interface to industrial management systems, businesses will be able to use their existing ERP, or asset management systems, and allow outside equipment suppliers to remotely access facility operational data on an ad hoc basis and use that data to lower the overall cost of facility operations.

EnNET® for OPC provides a platform independent XML Web Services interface to the platform specific COM based OPC protocol. EnNET for OPC is specifically designed to allow local and remote OPC servers to seamlessly interoperate with corporate business systems. Real-time factory floor data is made available to the enterprise via a firewall friendly XML Web Service transported over HTTP(S). EnNET for OPC is designed to run on Windows NT/2000/XP, and is sold as standalone software or on a handy OEM integration board or gateway appliance.

Built using IT standards like the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML Web Services, EnNET® for OPC fully supports the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) which dramatically speeds up integration and lowers implementation cost. This capability enables a top floor integration programmer using a programming environment capable of discovering and consuming web services to quickly build an interface to plant floor automation systems. Programming environments such as MS Visual Studio .NET (C#, C++, VB, ASP), JAVA, Borland’s Delphi and Kylix, Perl, PHP, TCL, and Javascript now fully support the consumption of XML Web Services. Top floor business systems such as SAP, JD Edwards, Peoplesoft, Oracle, and Maximo all provide integration middleware or APIs that can programmatically consume EnNET’s XML Web Services via its WSDL. EnNET is fully compliant with existing middleware such as Microsoft’s BizTalk™ and IBM's WebSphere® and MQ Series.
