The Network Automation Controller controls and manages C-Bus systems for buildings and integrates Building Management Systems such as Heating/Cooling and Energy Monitoring/Control.
From simple control to advanced installations, C-Bus provides control and automation of lighting, blinds, shutters and room occupancy.
The integrated visualisation allows local or remote control via PC, tablet, touch panel or smart phone. This includes scene functions, scheduling, trend logging and control.
Logic scripts can be programmed into the device to achieve complex control and advanced management functions.
The integration of IP cameras, web services and additional building management functions e.g. BACnet and Modbus is possible via Ethernet.
Interaction with other equipment and systems is possible via I/O connections including RS232, RS485 (Modbus RTU), digital input (optional monitored input), SELV relay output and LED driver output.
The communication with Modbus allows the integration of energy metering and climate control with C-Bus.
The product can be accessed over Ethernet for configuration and visualisation via the web server function.
Local access for configuration with a laptop is provided by the USB Type B adaptor.
A USB Type A connector for USB host (USB 2.0 High Speed) provides connection to USB expansion devices.
8 LEDs on the front panel provide full status feedback.
2 Reset buttons permit software and hardware reset functionality.
The product needs an external power supply (24 VDC).
The controller is designed for a maximum of:
|Objects (C-Bus and internal):||2000*|
|Users for visualisation:||8||50*|
|BACnet data points:||50||500*|
* (limits are dependent on maximum CPU load (not a physical limit))
