What PowerLogic and ION meters natively support the BACnet protocol?

Issue
Wish to know what PowerLogic and ION meters natively support BACnet protocol.

Product Line
PowerLogic meters, ION meters

Environment
Meter communication protocols

Cause
BACnet protocol is not a standard protocol with PowerLogic and ION meters. 
Standard protocols include ION, Modbus TCP/IP, DNP 3.0. 

Resolution
The EM3560, Branch Circuit Power Meter Type E, and EM4800 series (with firmware V1.46 Build 1105) are the only meters that natively supports the BACnet protocol. All other ION meters do not and would require a 3rd party Modbus to BACnet converter to be used on a BACnet system.

As of May 2016, PM5500 meters can support BACnet IP protocol with firmware V2.3.0 or higher
