WindowsTM Client Software for
If you're an end-user, installer or product developer who needs to quickly check out and analyze multi-vendor
BACnetTM systems, chances are you're
struggling to make your system work properly and inter-operate across vendors. A lot of times systems
are not documented properly, or you just don't know "what's out there" at a given site, and you probably don't
have the time to search out missing documents and call competitors for information. You need fast and reliable
tools to help you find out about the BACnet devices you have and focus on solving your application
problems. You need helpful, flexible tools that really work, at a price that won't blow
your budget. You need BACnet Quick Test (BQT)TM.
BQTTM is an easy-to-use all-purpose BACnet device discovery,
analysis and testing tool for WindowsTM.
BQT runs under Windows 98/Me/NT4/2000 and XP, and provides a simple set of client
features tailored to the needs of end-users, installers and product developers who just want to
run some quick tests. After choosing a LAN media type (Ethernet 8802-3, ARCNET, BACnet/IP or MS/TP),
BQT immediately tries to discover the available BACnet devices on that LAN and display them
in an intuitive "tree" structure similar to Windows Explorer.
The tree branches identify not only the device instance and MAC address for each device, but also
the vendor and device name. Opening a specific device branch automatically reads the list of
BACnet objects for the device and shows their name and (if available) the common property Present_Value.
You can even open the specific object to see a list of its specific properties and their values.
BQT goes out of its way to be "gentle" on target devices without hammering them with requests. This
technique assures that BQT will operate with even the simplest BACnet devices.
You can make detailed examination of single properties with a single click. This tool allows
you to do reading and writing of individual properties for quick check-out and testing.
Super Easy Installation
BQT uses a unique installation technology that is very easy to setup. When you run BQT, it
automatically tests for the type of operating system and LANs you have available and makes the
appropriate LAN bindings automatically!
If you need to have a tool for rapid simple tests of BACnet systems in the field, BQT is
that must-have tool.
