FT 6050 EVK

The FT 6050 EVK is a complete hardware and software platform for creating or evaluating LON, LonTalk/IP-FT, BACnet/IP-FT, and BACnet MS/TP devices based on the Series 6000 Smart Transceivers and Neuron® Processors.

Key Features

  • Supports the development of LON, LON /IP, BACnet/IP or BACnet MS/TP devices on a common platform
  • Includes two FT 6050 EVB hardware platforms for initial application development and testing
  • Includes sample I/O hardware with a 4×20 character LCD display for easy I/O prototyping and testing
  • Includes the IzoT® NodeBuilder® software for application development and IzoT Commissioning Tool for easy installation and testing of control networks
  • Includes one U10 USB FT Network Interface and a set of five FT 6050 Smart Transceiver chips
  • Open source Wireshark network protocol analyzer can be used to capture, analyze, characterize, and display network packets so you can pinpoint network or device faults and identify potential solutions
