Babel Buster BB3-6101-V2C is used to connect SNMP v1 and v2c devices to Modbus RTU and TCP. The BB3-6101-V2C includes an SNMP client that can read and write MIB variables in other SNMP devices. When reading, the remote device’s data will be stored in a local register. When writing, data will be taken from a local register and sent to the remote SNMP device via SNMP Set.
The BB3-6101-V2C includes an automatic table walker with multiple algorithms making it suitable for walking the sparse alarm table found in UPS systems implementing RFC 1628. The table walker can easily translate the alarm table into a series of Modbus coils for easy access by a PLC.
The BB3-6101-V2C includes a trap receiver supporting both v1 and v2c traps. The template driven trap receiver provides multiple algorithms for recognizing traps, and can easily place trap information into holding registers for Modbus access.
The BB3-6101-V2C allows you to create your own Modbus register map. The “registers” can be 16, 32, or 64 bit integer, or IEEE 754 floating point. The BB3-6101-V2C also supports ASCII character strings as a series of registers.
The BB3-6101-V2C can be Modbus RTU master or slave (user selectable), and Modbus TCP client and server (concurrently). When configured as a master, maps created via templates in the BB3-6101-V2C’s web UI will read and write other Modbus devices, copying their data to local registers when read, or sending data from local registers to those devices when written.
The BB3-6101 is a significant enhancement over its predecessor, the BBPro-V210. The hardware includes a faster processor and hardware encryption engine for efficient rendering of secure web pages. The software includes numerous enhancements.
• IPv6 support
• Secure (HTTPS) web server
• Higher point count, up to 1,000 MIB variables typical
• CSV import of register maps for client/master configuration
• Menu options to clear part or all of configuration
Configuration of the gateway is done via the secure web pages served by the internal web server. The user simply fills in templates. The entire configuration is saved in the internal Flash file system in XML format. This file may be exported to replicate additional copies of the configured device, or for backup.
The BB3-6101-V2C includes template based rules for simple calculations and data tests. These can be used for simple data manipulation. Reformatting from one register type to another is automatic. Therefore, a simple copy rule will transform a number into an ASCII string for use in sending traps.
