Cimetrics and Lantronix Form Alliance to Introduce Native IP and BACnet Solutions for Building Automation

"The Automator"

Boston, MA – Cimetrics Inc. the leading 3rd-party supplier of BACnet software, announced the formation of a technology and marketing alliance with Lantronix, Inc., a leader in device networking and data center management, to bring new IP and Web Services solutions to the building automation market by utilizing the Lantronix XPort™ module.

Cimetrics will implement the XPort module in their Native IP and Eplus product lines, and will be selling a BACnet enabled XPort module for OEMs. The Lantronix XPort is a compact embedded device server that offers a highly integrated Ethernet hardware solution which enables Cimetrics BACstac™ protocol stack. This module conforms to Web Services standards (XML/SOAP) used by almost all Enterprise software vendors. Setup is done using a browser setup screen so that control and monitoring of BACnet devices can be done without needing to know the BACnet protocol.

One example of this breakthrough in connectivity is the "Cimetrics Native IP to 4 channel Utility Meter" interface. This inexpensive gateway lets users connect four utility meters (gas, water, electricity, flow, etc) to any TCP/IP data network so the metering information is made available to any computer on the network or via the Internet. The accounting office or the facilities manager can easily setup automatic capture of data from these meters into an accounting package or spreadsheet with little or no software coding required. Other products in the Native IP Series offer the same interface simplicity for lighting control, occupancy sensing, HVAC controls and sensors, home automation products, and industrial networking products.

Both Cimetrics and Lantronix will display new products utilizing these new technologies at the BuilConn and M2M Expo and Conference, March 21-24, 2005, in Dallas, Texas.
