Redmond, WA (September 13, 2011)—Trend Control Systems USA ( today debuted the TL1. The TL1 is a Trend network device that utilizes Niagara AX® software to allow a Novar Logic One® system to interface, communicate and integrate with a Trend system. The TL1 replaces the Logic One executives located within a building. This functionality allows for communication and data to flow between Logic One devices and a Trend system, providing a supervisor to control the Logic One controllers.

Novar Logic One executive controllers are discontinued in the commercial market. As a result, building owners with existing Logic One systems were left with a situation wherein they were unable to update and maintain their existing building management systems (BMS), and were forced to invest in an entirely new BMS. The introduction of the TL1 changes this. The TL1 can replace existing Logic One executives throughout a building thereby extending the life of the Logic One system, and allowing a smooth migration path to a new and updated Trend system.

“The TL1 gives a cost-effective upgrade option for current Novar Logic One customers,” said Todd Cowles, Trend Director of Sales- Americas. “The TL1 makes use of existing Logic One controllers while bringing data and control to a more capable and modern Trend front-end.”

“With the TL1, building owners have additional options, and no longer need to perform a complete system replacement,” said Gene Javri, Trend Product Manager. “Building owners can now modernize their system over time by expanding with Trend.”
