CAN2GO VAV Controller Fully Integrates EnOcean Devices with End-to-End Building Automation Systems
Montreal, QC, H2S3L5, USA
CAN2GO(TM) announced today the launch of a new Variable Air Volume (VAV) building automation controller capable of bidirectional communication with EnOcean and wired end-devices. The controller features an embedded EnOcean transceiver and EnOcean-to-BACnet gateway, allowing total wireless control of energy harvesting end-devices within an end-to-end BACnet system. Extending the reach of centralized building automation systems, the VAV controller is a fully-programmable device with an on-board pressure sensor capable of meeting VAV application requirements. The CAN2GO controller can act either as a stand-alone product or be integrated into a larger BACnet system.
"The use of wireless technology within a building management system reduces the amount of wiring required, effectively enabling fast and cost efficient solutions. By supporting both wired and wireless connectivity, an integrator can take advantage of the cost and deployment advantages of wireless where needed, and still rely on wired connectivity where appropriate" said Louis-Nicolas Hamer, VP Product Strategy for the CAN2GO(TM) product line. "CAN2GO delivers the best of both worlds."
"The development of BAS gateways is an important milestone for the EnOcean community as well as for the building automation industry. Gateway controllers provide the missing link between wireless EnOcean devices and traditional building automation systems. Integrators everywhere can now manage EnOcean end-devices exactly as they manage wired end-devices," said Jim O'Callaghan, President of EnOcean, Inc.
EnOcean is the only interoperable wireless standard that enables zero-maintenance, self-powered, battery-free operations. CAN2GO(TM) controllers are the first to support two-way communication and control between wired and wireless end-devices. Employed as gateways, CAN2GO(TM) controllers convert EnOcean and wired end-devices to BACnet objects, enabling seamless integration into BACnet systems. They can also act as servers, hosting a complete IP web-interface capable of managing all controllers and their end devices.
In addition, for further flexibility, CAN2GO controllers can communicate with each other wirelessly, through a wired Ethernet/IP network, or via chain-linked CANbus serial bus.
For more information, systems integrators are invited to attend the CAN2GO October 19th webinar or visit www.can2go.com.
