Sontay Embraces Tridium with New Wireless Sensor Expansion
the successful launch of its award-winning SonNet range of wireless
temperature and relative humidity sensors, Sontay has introduced a new
Tridium NiagaraAX driver for its SonNet network radio receivers. This
latest innovation will enable quick and seamless integration with
Tridium’s range of JACE controllers as part of a NiagaraAX framework
for building control systems and opens up the system to BMS protocols
such as BACnet, LonTalk and Modbus. Tridium’s NiagaraAX is an
open, Java-based framework which integrates
diverse building services systems, control devices and communications
standards, including LONWORKS®, BACnet, Modbus and others into an
interoperable, web-enabled application environment. The new driver
ensures Sontay’s RF-RXS receivers serve up a Tridium compatible web
interface where SonNet wireless sensors are used on a project. This
allows engineers to gather measurement data from the sensors and also
perform radio network management services, such as, auto-commissioning
and setting device configuration parameters as part of a building’s
Tridium NiagaraAX framework.
