ASCII Gateways

The ASCII Protocol Translator Gateways have been specially designed to allow bidirectional control and monitoring of all parameters and functionalities of your building automation projects.

The most advanced configuration tool for protocol integration

Intesis MAPS is a Windows based software tool specifically developed to configure and monitor the new generation of Intesis gateways.

Intesis ASCII Gateways

Our solutions are developed for integrators, designed to be robust so they are reliable in the field and easy to set up.


Both ASCII Serial & IP supported

All ASCII gateways can communicate through Serial (RS232 & RS485) and TCP ports at the same time.


Custom string signals

It offers a great flexibility to adapt to different devices, BMS or systems defining custom ASCII strings per each signal.


Custom string commands

It offers a great flexibility to adapt to different devices, BMS or systems selecting custom string commands on Intesis MAPS software.


Value changed notifications

Gateway will report all changes in signals with this parameter active. It helps to improve communications and refresh time of the system.

BACnet IP & MS/TP Client to ASCII IP & Serial Server Gateway

Integrate any BACnet MS/TP or BACnet IP server device, with an ASCII BMS or any ASCII IP or ASCII serial controller. The aim of this integration is to make accessible BACnet objects data and resources from an ASCII based control system or device, as if it was a part of the own ASCII system and vice-versa.


  • UL Certified
  • BTL Certified
  • Support for both ASCII IP and ASCII Serial (232/485)
  • Automatically send a write request to the ASCII bus when its value changes
  • Use personalized ASCII strings
  • Both BACnet IP and MS/TP supported
  • Possibility to scan for BACnet devices with BACnet Explorer
  • Easy integration & updates with Intesis MAPS

Use Case

Integration of BACnet Devices into an ASCII controlled installation.



This bidirectional gateway provides a straightforward and fast integration thanks to its unique onboard features.

Thanks to its support for custom ASCII strings, a seamless integration with any ASCII BMS or controller it is guaranteed.

The configuration is carried out using the Intesis MAPS software. This one allows you to define your own settings for the device. Also, it will be able to download all the available project templates or to import any created/exported project template on your computer.

ASCII logo w257

ASCII is the acronym for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It is a code for representing 128 characters as numbers, with each letter assigned a number from 0 to 127.

ASCII codes represent text in computers, telecommunications equipment and other devices.
In an ASCII file, each alphabetic, numeric, or special character is represented with a 7-bit binary number.

ASCII Protocol Translators

Intesis ASCII gateways offer control and monitoring of BACnet or KNX devices from any ASCII Client (BMS, PLC or SCADA).

Intesis ASCII gateways could communicate through IP and serial (RS232 or RS485) interfaces and offer great flexibility to communicate with any ASCII system thanks to the use of custom string commands and custom string signals to match each system specifications.

Intesis ASCII solutions act as an ASCII Server, so it waits for any query and responses according to the message received. Whenever an internal data point changes its value, the gateway could send an ASCII message informing about the new value too.

  • Easy integration through KNX TP, RS485, Ethernet and serial ports with BACnet and KNX protocols.
  • Scaled licences per number of datapoints help finding the right gateway version for your project
