Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
ConnectEx, Inc. is excited to announce that the BACnet Interface for i.LON SmartServers is available for download, trial and purchase. ConnectEx’s BACnet Interface for i.LON SmartServers was developed in partnership with Echelon, Inc to be the LonWorks®/BACnet Gateway Application for the i.LON SmartServer.
Enabling multi-vendor, multi-protocol solutions by providing a BACnet interface on newly commissioned and/or established LonWorks® networks, modern Building Automation and Energy Automation applications and upgrades can now capitalize on the strengths of both BACnet and LonWorks® protocols.
“We are very excited to provide this capability to the Building Automation marketplace”, says Edward Hague, President of ConnectEx. “There is a real and immediate need for inter-protocol connectivity and this BACnet Interface seamlessly delivers expanded capabilities into the hands of network designers, field engineers and end users who want to integrate LonWorks and BACnet products.”
The software is implemented as a standard SmartServer App and requires a SmartServer with activated programmability. The BACnet Interface provides an intuitive BACnet look and feel to any i.LON® site interface. The software is compatible with all common BACnet AWS/OWS workstations.
