BMS Networks

Wireless, Fixed, internet IP address, Mobile phone Remote access

Bacnet, Lon Works, Modbus, Sedona, Niagara AX, Proprietary Networks/Protocols

The BMS Networks available and installed, past and present, offer different advantages and different cost subject to their application. Which is the best network and why. What are the costs? and what are the benefits versus the cost? Are the differences a major concern or simply academic?

Services within the Commercial Building Structure, such as Lifts, Building Automation, Security, Access Control, Cameras, HVAC, lighting and other equipment use Various BMS Networks and “backbones” to Communicate, which of these already operate in your facility? Can we use them to your advantage?

BMS (Building Management System) networks can be integrated to bring these “services” networks into a single system BMS Network delivering data to graphics and other systems to improve operational performance and garnish the natural benefits of improved energy conservation within the building.

Data Mining, via these networks, can deliver strategic information for budgets, energy conservation and facility operations.

The Niagara AX open platform can bring these networks together in a seamless integrated system which can be accessed via an IP address and preserve the many advantages of internet based systems; automated e-mail and alarms for instance.

Networking your building is easier and Cheaper than you think

BMS Networking your facility is easier than you think, Why? Vendors of equipment can provide interface cards in various protocols for the same item, and its simple to organize via a phone call and typically around a few hundred dollars for the card. installation and programming costs will vary but generally a day to install and program to obtain the values in to a typical user friendly Graphic.

Opportunities to move that information a bound, you can then monitor, create alarms, and implement a plethora of energy conservation strategies.

Networking Equipment

In a nutshell, Nothing, unless you use the information in a strategic and effective manner. Your Strategic plan should include alarms, graphics, remote access, and most importantly energy and resource conservation for the facility. The more thought you put into this the more information can be effectively used to reduce costs.

Reduce Costs

The Opportunity for Reducing costs is not just in the form of energy conservation, but in reducing labour costs. The information the network data will provide to a building manager or Property manager will assist to make decisions which are more informed.

Correct evaluations of equipment status can be made remotely ensuring correct contractors are called, these evaluations assist to ascertain urgency, False calls, emergency calls, critical equipment failure, and other parameters.

Building networks provide the pathway for effective Building Management maximizing technology and minimizing costs.

Building Networks provide a simple carriage way for integration of vicarious technologies from various vendors into a holistic easy to use system.

Niagara AX (Tridium) JACE, Lon Works, BACnet,

Modbus, Sedona are the most commonly installed and are designed to be Open (Multi vendor compatible).

High Level Interface to Multiple Vendor Machines such as Chillers, Variable Speed Drives, Boilers, Air Conditioning Units, DX Systems, VRV Systems, and much more.

High Level Interface

Our non Formal definition of a HLI is simply the communications between networks or equipment which delivers data without the use of a Gateway device.

Low Level Interface

Our non formal definition of a LLI is communications via a signal, this signal being a “volt Free Contact” “current(Amps) value or Voltage value
