The BACnet Gateway provides an interface between
NOTIFIER’s fire panel network NOTI•FIRE•NET™ (version
4.0 and higher) and a network using the BACnet/IP communi-
cation protocol. BACnet protocol is an American National Stan-
dard (ANSI/ASHRAE 135-1995). With the Gateway interface,                                                          CS118
devices on NOTI•FIRE•NET™ fire alarm control panels are
represented as BACnet objects to the BACnet client. The user                                S635
subscribes to Event Notification objects per FACP, and the
BACnet device receives events from objects on the FACP as
a result of this subscription.
The BACnet Gateway can be connected to a stand-alone
ONYX™ panel with an available network port, or it can be con-
nect to NOTI•FIRE•NET™ via the network port on any NCM-
W/-F. Connected to NOTI•FIRE•NET™, each BACnet Gate-
way can support 15 nodes maximum or 15,000 objects. Mul-
tiple BACnet Gateways can be used to interface with larger
networks.                                                                                                        BACnet Gateway

  teen NOTI•FIRE•NET™ panels with a
  maximum combined object count of 15,000

  figuration Tool, an offline programming utility used to con-
  figure the BACnet Gateway. The Serial Configuration Tool
