Expander Boards The eTRAC system can be added to a eBuilding Network Controller through a BACnet MS/TP EIA 485 communication bus. The eTRAC System consist of a transeiver module and input/output devices that can support up to 16 I/O points. The eTRAC EIA 232 interface board can allow access through a EIA 232 connection.
