Siemens P2 to BACnet Integration

This gateway software provides for an elegant integration of a Siemens Apogee system to any BACnet client software. With the help of the Apogee P2 protocol support, this gateway software gives fast access to the Apogee system data points for both read and write operations as achieved by the Siemens Insight building management software.

The BACnetP2 gateway software can be connected to an Apogee legacy P2 over RS485 network. Connection to an Apogee P2 /Ethernet network is also supported including multi BLN configurations.

The software automatically maps the complete Apogee system to BACnet for easy use with BACnet discovery tools. Each Apogee panel is mapped to a separate BACnet device object. Likewise each Apogee TEC device is mapped to a separate BACnet device object.

The integration has a very low impact on the Apogee system. The BACnetP2 software appears on the Apogee system as a native Apogee panel device which only increases the network load by a small amount, typically a few percent.

The BACnetP2 software is a linux software application. Windows is not currently supported although the gateway software can be run on Windows from a linux virtual machine.

Minimum system requirements:

  • Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS AMD64 (server or desktop)
  • CPU Atom 1.8 GHz
  • RAM 2 GByte
  • DISK 100 Gbyte
  • RS485 adapter (Legacy P2 /RS485 only)
