BACnet Device Service Component

The BACnet Device Service components integrate the BACnet protocol with XRT. There are two BACnet Device Services:

  • BACnet/IP
  • BACnet/MSTP

For further information on the protocol, refer to the official ASHRAE SSPC 135 website.

The BACnet Device Service components support the following features:

  • Device discovery and profile generation
  • Change of Value subscription
  • Reading and writing properties of BACnet devices
  • Multiple property read/writes
    • Data Sharing - ReadPropertyMultiple - B
    • Data Sharing - WritePropertyMultiple - B

  }
}

Determining Serial Interface Path

To find the path of the serial interface used there are a few options.

If the interface is not fixed to the host, for example via USB, remove it and connect again then run the following command:

dmesg -w

This command provides information on the last connected device, which will contain the device's path. This path is usually something like /dev/tty/USBx where x is the USB port number.

If you have a fixed interface, the following command could be used to find all the available serial connections:

dmesg | grep tty
This for example could return ttyS0 which would mean its full path is /dev/ttyS0

BACnet Device Profile

Details on general profile usage can be found on the Device Profiles page

The following sections will cover how device resources are mapped to BACnet properties.

Attributes

The attributes used in a BACnet device resource are described in the following table:

Attribute Description Valid Values
type Mandatory

BACnet object type
UInt32 value

Object type values are specified in an enumeration: bacenum.h file
instance Mandatory

BACnet object instance number
UInt32 value
property Mandatory

BACnet property type
UInt32 value

Property types are specified in an enumeration: bacenum.h file
index Optional

Index of array
UInt32 value

Index 0 holds the size of an array in BACnet
raw Optional

Read / write the full APDU if true

XRT data type must also be set to UInt8Array if true
true / false

Data Types

When the device receives a request, it returns a value with a BACnet type. The following table lists the supported BACnet data types, their equivalent XRT data types and the supported read / write abilities:

BACnet Data Type XRT Data Type Read/Write Ability
Boolean Bool RW
Unsigned Int UInt64 RW
Signed Int Int32 RW
Real Float32 RW
Double Float64 RW
Enumerated UInt32 RW
Character String String RW
Date String R
Bit String UInt8Array R
Octect String UInt8Array R
Time String R
BACnetObjectIdentifier String R

Note

The BACnet device service can decode two types of BACnet Character String encoding, UTF8 and UCS2. Any other encoding will be returned as the encoding type followed by the hex bytes. An example is provided: MS_DBCS:00010A09010A094070A0B

BACnet Arrays

BACnet Array types are supported to be read but will only be returned using the XRT String type. Each element is comma separated where the following BACnet types are supported for the array:

  • Null
  • Boolean
  • Enumerated
  • Unsigned Int
  • Signed Int
  • Real
  • Double
  • Character String

Additional BACnet Types

There is support for reading and writing additional BACnet types in an object form. Details of supported objects can be found in BACnet Object Support.

To read / write any other BACnet types that are not supported, the XRT data type UInt8Array must be used along with an attribute of raw set to true in the device resource. The device service will return the entire APDU that is received as a UInt8 array. If writing to a device resource of this type the entire encoded APDU must be provided as the payload by the user as a UInt8 array. An example device resource of this type is shown in the Example Device Resources section.

Device Commands

See the Device Profiles page for details on how to define device commands for grouping device resources for fewer requests.

BACnet Device Provisioning

The following sections will explain how devices can be statically configured for both BACnet/IP and BACnet/MSTP Device Services.

Note

For information on dynamic device additions, removals, and updates, please see the MQTT API Guide.

BACnet/IP Device Provisioning

To provision a BACnet/IP device, the BACnet-IP protocol must be used along with the DeviceInstance protocol property which specifies the BACnet device instance network ID.

An example of a BACnet/IP device provision within the devices.json file is provided below:

{
  "BacnetSimulator": {
    "name": "BacnetSimulator",
    "profileName": "bacnet-simulator",
    "protocols": {
      "BACnet-IP": {
        "DeviceInstance": 1234
      }
    }
  }
}

BACnet/MSTP Device Provisioning

To provision a BACnet/IP device, the BACnet-MSTP protocol must be used along with the DeviceInstance protocol property which specifies the BACnet device instance network ID.

An example of a BACnet/MSTP device provision within the devices.json file is provided below:

{
  "BacnetSimulator": {
    "name": "BacnetSimulator",
    "profileName": "bacnet-simulator",
    "protocols": {
      "BACnet-MSTP": {
        "DeviceInstance": 1234
      }
    }
  }
}

BACnet Device Service Interaction

Any sections contained within the part of the guide are to describe protocol specific functionality of the device service.

For information on how to dynamically execute reads, writes, setting up schedules, triggering device discovery and much more, please refer to the MQTT API Guide.

For interactive examples of both BACnet IP and MSTP Device Services refer to BACnet/IP XRT Example and BACnet/MSTP XRT Example projects. Follow the instructions in those links, which will demonstrate many features of XRT with the device service running against a BACnet simulator.

BACnet Priority Levels

When performing a put request on a BACnet device resource, an additional option can be added to the payload, Priority, which indicates the priority level (1 to 16) that the value will be written as. Only a select few Object types and properties support these priority levels in BACnet.

An example user payload is provided which demonstrates its usage on the Present Value property of the Analog Output Object.

In this example, priority level 2 will be set as the value 33.0.

{
  "client": "iotech",
  "request_id": "102",
  "op": "device:put",
  "device": "BacnetSimulator",
  "values": {
    "analog_output_0:present-value": 33.0
  },
  "options": {
    "Priority": 2
  }
}

These priority levels can also be set to null. In the following example, priority level 1 will be set to null.

This will mean that when the Present Value property is read, the returned reading will skip priority level 1 as its null and return the value from level 2 which was set as 33.0.

{
  "client": "iotech",
  "request_id": "101",
  "op": "device:put",
  "device": "BacnetSimulator",
  "values": {
    "analog_output_0:present-value": null
  },
  "options": {
    "Priority": 1
  }
}

BACnet Change of Value

In addition to regular polling via schedules that are described in the Schedules page, the BACnet Device Service supports a protocol specific feature called Change of Value (COV). This allows the device service to subscribe for changes to a specific property on a device, which is usually the Present Value.

When the value of this property changes, if the delta is larger than the COV Increment property value, then the device will send the device service a notification which includes this new value.

Setting up a COV subscription is similar to configuring a schedule for XRT. There are two main differences: - The interval field is not set - An additional field is used, options - Within this field, there is a COV field that contains 2 settings: Confirmed and Lifetime.

The usage of COV options is explained in the table below.

COV Setting Description Valid Values
Confirmed Confirmed or unconfirmed COV notifications. true / false
Lifetime Length of time the COV subscription will last in seconds.

Once the time has elapsed, a cancel request will be sent to the device and the COV removed from the XRT configuration.

Set to 0 for an infinite COV subscription.
UInt16 value

An example of a COV subscription for two different properties is provided below as a static configuration in the schedules.json file.

{
  "cov0": {
    "name": "cov0",
    "device": "BacnetSimulator", 
    "resource": ["analog_value_0:present-value", "analog_value_1:present-value"], 
    "options": {
      "COV": {
        "Confirmed": false, 
        "Lifetime": 600
      }
    }
  }
}

BACnet Device Discovery

When triggering a BACnet discovery request as described in the MQTT API Guide, there are the following device service settings that can be included within the options field. Some of these will override the corresponding device service driver options that can be found in BACnet Device Service Configuration

Parameter Type Description Example Value
DiscoveryDuration UInt16 Driver Option Override

Controls the length of time to wait between who-is broadcasts in milliseconds.
5000
DiscoveryRetries UInt8 Driver Option Override

Controls how many extra who-is broadcasts are made during a discovery call.
2
DiscoveryDeviceRange List of 2 Unsigned Integers Configure a specified range of devices to issue a discovery on.

Set the lower and upper limits on what BACnet device instances should respond.
[0, 999]

An example discovery:trigger command using these options is provided:

{
  "client":"iotech",
  "request_id": "108",
  "op": "discovery:trigger",
  "options": {
    "DiscoveryDuration": 5000,
    "DiscoveryRetries": 2,
    "DiscoveryDeviceRange": [0, 999]
  }
}

When receiving the details of the discovered devices on the TelemetryTopic some additional information will be included in a properties field. These are described in the following table.

Property Type Description Example Value
InstanceID UInt32 Device Object Instance ID 1234
Contactable Bool Indicating whether the device is directly contactable. If false, some of the other properties will not be included as they are read directly from the device. true
Port UInt16 Port Number of the BACnet Network

Only for BACnet/IP
47808
IP String IP Address of the Device

Only for BACnet/IP
192.168.50.27
DeviceType String Indicates whether the device was discovered using BACnet/IP or BACnet/MSTP BACnet-IP / BACnet-MSTP
ApplicationSoftware String Device Object Property Application Software 2.0
Firmware String Device Object Property Firmware Revision 1.0.1
ModelName String Device Object Property Model Name IOTech BACnet Simulator
ObjectName String Device Object Property Object Name BacnetSimulator
VendorID UInt32 Device Object Property Vendor Identifier 1313
VendorName String Device Object Property Vendor Name IOTech

When a device is discovered, the value of the ObjectName property with the InstanceID value appended is used as the device name when its details are published. If a device is uncontactable, or the ObjectName property is empty, only the InstanceID value is used as the device name.

An example of discovered device that is contactable:

{
   "BACnetSimulator:1234":{
      "properties":{
         "ApplicationSoftware": "2.0",
         "DeviceType": "BACnet-IP",
         "Firmware": "1.0.1",
         "IP": "192.168.50.27",
         "InstanceID": 1234,
         "ModelName": "IOTech BACnet Simulator",
         "ObjectName": "BACnetSimulator",
         "Port": 47808,
         "VendorID": 1313,
         "VendorName": "IOTech",
         "Contactable": true
      },
      "protocols":{
         "BACnet-IP":{
            "DeviceInstance": 1234
         }
      }
   }
}
An example of discovered device that is not contactable:

{
   "1234":{
      "properties":{
         "DeviceType": "BACnet-IP",
         "IP": "192.168.50.27",
         "InstanceID": 1234,
         "Port": 47808,
         "Contactable": false
      },
      "protocols":{
         "BACnet-IP":{
            "DeviceInstance": 1234
         }
      }
   }
}

BACnet Profile Discovery Options

Profile discovery can occur via different operations. When explicitly adding a device (device:add) with no profile or scanning an existing device for new data points (device:scan) there are the following device service settings that can be included within the options field of the command. Some of these will override the corresponding device service driver options that can be found in BACnet Device Service Configuration.

Parameter Type Description Example Value
DiscoverMode String Driver Option Override

Determines the range of properties that will be discovered on a device when generating a profile.

The three options are:
  • All - Will attempt PROP_ALL requests which receive all properties of an object. Upon failure of that call, it will try to read the property list of each object instance and query each property. Upon failure of that, it will try to read the standard and optional properties of each object instance on the device according to the BACnet specification of that particular object.
  • Mandatory - Will only query the mandatory properties of each object instance on the device according to the BACnet specification of that particular object.
  • PresentValue - Will only query present value.
All
DiscoverProperties List of UInt32 values Driver Option Override

Used to filter for only the properties specified when generating a BACnet device profile.

Property types are specified in an enumeration: bacenum.h file
[75, 36, 28, 81, 85, 103, 117, 87]
DiscoverObjects List of UInt32 values Driver Option Override

Used to filter for only the object types specified when generating a BACnet device profile.

Object type values are specified in an enumeration: bacenum.h file
[8, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 13, 14, 19]

An example device:add command using these options is provided:

{
  "client": "iotech",

This component can also deregister from all events. Details on how to use this component can be found on the BACnet Event Registration Extension Component page.
