Control Solutions' Babel Buster 3 is a hardware device - a network gateway - that provides several SNMP functions, including Trap Receiver. The Babel Buster 3 trap receiver has the ability to turn traps into BACnet object values and has the ability to automatically take further action based on the trap.

"I need to switch something on when a trap is received."

Taking action with physical results is a common requirement that is not met by many software products called "trap receivers". The Babel Buster 3 has the ability to take action. Simple responses can be created just using rule templates in the Babel Buster 3. The actions taken in response to SNMP traps result in data being placed in BACnet objects. This data can be shared with other BACnet devices, such as a building automation controller, or directly command a BACnet I/O device..

Monitor SNMP traps from your Building Management System (BMS)

The Babel Buster 3 gateway will translate traps into BACnet objects. A BACnet based BMS can then read the objects in the gateway, or subscribe to their COV notifications. The gateway also has the ability to be BACnet client, writing data to objects in other devices. Whether your Babel Buster is operating as a server or a client, you now have total flexilibity in receiving SNMP trap information on the BACnet network.
