New CAS Gateway Creates BACnet IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU Points for Real-Time Weather Values!


Vancouver, BC, Canada – June 3rd, 2019 – Chipkin has developed a custom driver for the CAS HTTP JSON Gateway (CAS 2700-79) which allows it to poll for values in JSON payloads over HTTP or HTTP(s). The values are extracted using a JSON path system, and then the values are stored in an internal database. The data is then made available via other protocols such as BACnet IP, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, etc. The CAS 2700-79 HTTP JSON Gateway driver can be used injunction with any HTTP(s) JSON API.

An example use-case for this product would be to poll an online weather prediction service such as for weather information. Using the Darksky weather API, the CAS Gateway could be used to create BACnet IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU points for weather values such as; Apparent (feels-like) temperature, Atmospheric pressure, Cloud cover, Dew point, Humidity, Liquid precipitation rate, Moon phase, Nearest storm distance, Nearest storm direction, Ozone, Precipitation type, Snowfall, Sun rise/set, Temperature, Text summaries, UV index, Wind gust, Wind speed, Wind direction, etc..

Other examples include; predictive fuel and energy prices, local traffic reports, air quality, energy meters, fuel tank levels, is the current date a holiday, or historical country wide egg production levels.

How IoT Helps Solve the 4 Most Critical Global Issues

IoT-powered solutions are largely used to address issues that an enterprise or a consumer is having. Nevertheless, that same technology can also be implemented to solve some of the most critical global challenges.

How to Make Sense of Machine Data in Smart Factories

Although the majority of companies know about IoT, not many understand the value they can extract from machine data right now; it’s all about the communication ability between the shop floor and the business environment.

Getting IoT Technology Partnerships Right

No company can create an IoT solution alone, and vendors increasingly must form strategic partnerships that give them access to all necessary complementary technologies. An effective partnership will speed time to market for solutions that not only optimize the customer experience but also protect users and their personal data against growing cyber security threats while offering the scalability to support growth and changing requirements.

The Key Components of the New Deal for Buildings

The New Deal for Buildings initiative facilitates a dialog between the building automation industry and commercial building professionals on how we collectively think about intelligent and smart systems in buildings. The New Deal is built on three critically important building blocks: BACnet open standard, model-based analytics, and service transparency.
