Building automation is a programmed, computerised, "intelligent" network of electronic devices that monitor and control the mechanical and lighting systems in a building. The intent is to create an intelligent building and reduce energy and maintenance costs
A Paqworks Solution
Modern buildings now use open networks to build up an automation system, and since intelligent buildings emphasize centralized control and real-time reports, many engineers use Ethernet to implement their building automation system.
An Ethernet based Automation System integrates a wide range of communication technologies, including TCP/IP, Ethernet, BACnet, RS-485, and RS-232. Gateways and controllers are used to allow communication between different systems, such as HVAC Control, Lighting Control, CCTV, Fire/Security Alarm Systems, etc.
*Ethernet-based networks will be the standard for building automation, allowing designers to integrate all applications into one platform.
*RS-485 Gateway for connecting existing networks to Ethernet.
*Standard Ethernet-based protocols support BACnet/IP.
*Redundant dual 24 VDC power inputs for maximum reliability
*Power failure or port break warning by relay contact output
*Easy installation with DIN-Rail or panel mounting
*Programmable Communication Gateway for connecting existing RS-485 networks to Ethernet
