t-mac have designed a range of off-the-shelf and customisable protocol converters designed and manufactured in the UK by t-mac’s highly-skilled design engineering team.
Our unique Research and Development department is already working with many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) worldwide to bring M2M solutions to market quickly and effectively.
Equipment often has a serial port or similar communication port that uses a proprietary protocol. This restricts it to work only with the manufacturer’s own equipment and software. To open up the communication with other systems, such as t-mac, it is necessary to convert the closed proprietary protocol into an open protocol such as Modbus or BACnet. A protocol converter is a small device which speaks two languages. It bridges the gap between the open protocol and closed protocol by translating between the two languages.

Often there is a requirement to connect t-mac to 3rd party equipment for monitoring and control. When equipment does not have an open protocol connection, t-mac Technologies offers a custom protocol converter design service.
We have extensive experience of dealing with equipment manufacturers to obtain technical details of protocols, and developing a suitable converter to facilitate connection.
