BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
Software presents the new Modbus Templates feature embedded in the
IntesisBox MAPS configuration tool for our IBOX-BAC-MBM new generation
The gateways already
have the IntesisBox MAPS tool to configure them, which is easy to use
and flexible, but by adding the new Modbus Templates feature will be
possible to help integrators to do their jobs in a more efficient
way. In order to use this new feature, it is just necessary to
download IntesisBox MAPS and click on “Add from Template” when adding
Modbus devices to your projects. Then it will be possible to download
all the available templates or to import any created/exported template
in your computer. To make this even easier there is a video tutorial
available online to show how this new feature works: https://youtu.be/CKmW3W52wZY
Belimo New Globe Valve Series
Greater Force and Flexibility - The globe valve series are available in sizes from ½” to 6” which fulfill the requirements of ANSI 125 and ANSI 250 applications. Utilizing either bronze or stainless steel trim and fitted with either spring return, non-spring return, or electronic fail-safe actuators, globe valves are the perfect fit for HVAC equipment such as air handling units, terminal equipment, and hydronic systems with primary and secondary loops of water or steam service.

Program Your Raspberry Pi Using Niagara Workbench
Workbench is a powerful application for configuring and programming BAS
devices such as the JACE. It is also now possible to use Workbench 3.8
(version 3.8.111 or earlier) to program a Raspberry Pi to perform
In 2006, Tridium developed a control technology called Sedona Framework, which is a software environment designed to make it easy to build smart, networked, embedded devices which are well suited for implementing control applications. Sedona has been added to many building automation controllers. Tridium added support to program these Sedona devices using Workbench, but unfortunately they dropped this support in the Niagara 4.x versions of Workbench. The support still exists in 3.8.x Workbench. By adding Sedona to the Raspberry Pi, it is possible to use Workbench 3.8 or earlier to program a Sedona application that runs on the Raspberry Pi. As the Raspberry Pi's built-in I/O is fairly limited, we developed a low cost I/O board, the BASpi, which attaches to a Raspberry Pi and provides 6 universal inputs (thermistor, 0-10V, contact closure and pulse) and 6 relay outputs. It also provides screw terminal connections for these points. We also ported Sedona to the Raspberry Pi so the I/O can be easily programmed by Sedona compliant editors, such as Workbench 3.8.x.

The best way to implement BACnet on your small platform
More and more companies are developing their own small BACnet devices and it is not a trivial task to do this correctly. That's why we have developed uBACstac - BACnet Protocol stack for small devices. With uBACstac you can build simple BACnet-enabled devices such as meters, humidifiers, thermostats and other application specific controllers. It supports not only B-ASC, but also B-AAC profiles. We used all our experience building various BACnet Stacks (for more than 20 years) to create a simple, elegant and helpful solution for anyone who wants to implement a BACnet device on a small platform. Many manufactures are using uBACstac to create BACnet compliant BTL listed products.
