FT 6050 Smart Transceiver

FT 6050 Smart Transceiver

Open systems IP communication and control SoC for BACnet and LON over Free Topology (FT) media

The FT 6050 Smart Transceiver system on chip (SoC) combines a high-performance Neuron® core with a Free Topology transceiver on a single chip to facilitate the design of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices and consolidate smart control networks. The FT 6050 is a key product in the IzoT® platform — the most comprehensive and open control networking platform for the IIoT. The device natively supports both BACnet and LON communications on the same network and offers compatibility with the large installed base of LON and BACnet MS/TP devices, while adding support for LON/IP and BACnet/IP communication. This unique capability enables two of the most popular industrial protocols to communicate simultaneously over the highly reliable, widely adopted and easy to install Free Topology (FT) media. The FT 6050 is designed to deliver unprecedented flexibility and openness while lowering development and device costs in smart buildings and industrial installations.
