MSIB can request current weather conditions from NOAA web services and make it available to the BAS as a virtual BACnet node(s). The weather node(s) is available to be discovered as a BACnet node with BACnet objects by the Building Automation System (BAS).

MSIB does not act as a BBMD, so either an external BBMD in another device must be used or MSIB must reside on the same subnet as the device reading the data.

NOAA Web Service


MSIB must be configured to use the data from the NOAA Internet site as input. MSIB normalizes the data to BACnet data, making it available for the BAS.
