Toronto, Ontario and Westford, MA—August 5, 2008—Dimax Controls, one of Canada’s most innovative developers of control systems and software, and Spinwave Systems, a leading developer of wireless energy management systems, announced today that Spinwave’s wireless sensors have now been integrated with the recently introduced Dimax Data Convergence Module. The system will add wireless temperature , humidity, and utility monitoring capabilities to the Dimax Data Convergence Module (DCM), a LAN/Internet-based platform which uses standard web browsers to provide a fully functional user interface which acts as a unified platform for data drawn from various sources. Such sources include standards such as SNMP, Modbus, BACnet, HTTP Receive, HTTP Retrieve, SQL, 1-wire, POP 3 email, Spinwave, Dimax, Virtual Data Sources, along with many other systems. As such, the Dimax DCM can access Spinwave data and make it available to various BAS and/or IT systems.

Dimax customers are frequently in need of wireless systems for obtaining temperature and humidity profiles in their buildings, as well as for accessing energy and water meter data. “The strength of the Spinwave wireless technology lies in its signal integrity over significant transmission distances,” says Paul Silverthorne, CEO of Dimax Controls. These strengths were important in the recent selection of Spinwave products for use with the Dimax Data Convergence Module in 5 schools in the Montreal area.

Control Solutions, Inc Dimax Controls and Spinwave Systems began to collaborate in February, 2007 when Dimax added Spinwave to its user selectable protocols in its iDimax web-based data service. Since that time, the companies have worked together to allow Dimax to integrate Spinwave wireless products into the Building Automation Systems that Dimax installs.

“Integrating Spinwave’s sensors with the Dimax DCM provides building owners and managers with an important new option for integrating wireless sensors with their existing systems,” says Rainer Wischinski, Vice President of Marketing of Spinwave Systems. With this development, customers seeking comprehensive, multifunctional data collection solutions from Dimax have access to Spinwave’s flexible, cost-effective wireless building automation systems.
