FPC Gateway

Multi-protocol Gateway

The FPC Gateway is an external, high performance, low cost Building and Industrial Automation multi-protocol gateway providing KEP’s flow computers instant multiprotocol deployment to field protocol, quickly enabling the KEP flow computer to communicate to systems and devices using modern open protocols.

Kessler-Ellis Products pre-programs the FPC Gateway to provide a virtual plug-and-play, easy, complete protocol package for the user including: BACnet MS/TP, BACnet/IP, Metasys N2 by JCI, Modbus TCP, LonWorks and many others. There are no configuration files to download in the field and all configurations are available to the user/installer simply by selecting the proper DIP switches.


  • Support multiple ST2 Flow Computer profiles.
  • Designed to be full featured, field programmable, and with multiple protocol support for any protocol translation between Serial, Ethernet, or LonWorks environments.
  • Three methods of configuration:
    1. Configuration Auto-Selector (via DIP switches
    2. Auto-Discover known devices
    3. Profile selection via Web Configurator to load
    multiple configurations
  • Multiple hardware solutions available interfacing with RS-232, RS-485, RS-422, Ethernet or LonWorks.
  • Support one or multiple field protocols in single FPC.
  • Supports up to 10,000 Host and Field Protocol memory points depending upon model selected.
  • BACnet COV support provides fast data communication while reducing the traffic over a BACnet network.
  • Supports virtual nodes allowing multiple flow computers to connect to a single FPC and seen as separate controllers on the various field networks.
  • Easily supports user’s custom proprietary host serial or Ethernet protocols.
  • Multi-Client and Multi-Server support ensures interoperability between any Industrial and or Building Automation protocols.
  • BTL Marked and LonMark Certified.
