  1. Using ACE, open the default config you used in the "Getting Started Guide"
  2. Download the Elecsys-BACnet-Demo.xml from the site, and open the downloaded .xml file within the same ACE window as your "Getting Started Guide" configuration

    1. You will need to extract the .xml file from the .zip file you downloaded from the website. By default, ACE stores configuration files in the Documents\Elecsys\ACE\CFG folder, but you can store the configuration in any file location accessible by the ACE program.

    2. You cannot copy/paste nodes unless both configurations are open within the same instance of ACE. You can use the "Tile" buttons to have the windows automatically size themselves within the ACE program:

  3. Copy and paste the following objects from the Elecsys-BACnet-Demo config into the configuration you created in the "Getting Started" guide:

    1. MasterChannel0

    Include Page
    Renaming Nodes
    Renaming Nodes
  4. Edit one of the Ethernet ports so that it is on the same network as your BACnet device

    titleEthernet Configuration

    Setting the Network Card IP, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway values to "" will cause the Ethernet port to obtain an address via DHCP

  5. Edit the "NetCircuit0" object to match the settings on your BACnet device

  6. Edit the "FieldUnitBACnetIP" object to poll the appropriate registers for your BACnet device. In this example, we will be polling data from analog inputs, analog values, analog outputs, and the respective "Object Name" values for each tag.

  7. Edit your RTDB object so that it contains the correct number of database holding registers for the BACnet polls and string objects if you are polling the "Object Name" registers

  8. Edit your MasterChannel0 → Scan Table to set the scan rate for the polls configured in the poll table. For more information on how scan tables are configured, see Scan Table Configuration.

  9. OPTIONAL: Edit the TagNames object so that the RTDB registers are labeled with the correct tag names
  10. Save and upload the configuration to the RediGateUsing
  11. Create a Putty , SSH session into the device and view the Custom Reports
    1. User menu option 3 Diagnostic Services, 535 View Custom Report, Refresh rate of 5 seconds

  1. RediGate to confirm that the RediGate is successfully polling the registers. You may get some errors on start-up, but if you see the Poll Count field incrementing, your RediGate is configured correctly.

Congratulations, you have successfully configured your RediGate to talk to an EtherNet/IP device. If you are interested in publishing your data to a cloud IoT platform, download one of our "IIoT Platform Quick Starts" from To view the values of the registers you are polling in the RediGate MMI, see Accessing RTDB Data Dump
