The winners of the AHR Innovation Awards have been announced. In the Building Automation category, iSMA-B-MAC36NL - Hybrid IoT Controller powered by Niagara Framework was selected as the most innovative product. iSMA-B-MAC36NL is a part of the Small and Medium BMS Solution of iSMA CONTROLLI S.p.A.
The iSMA-B-MAC36NL Master Application Controller family provides an all-in-one solution for mini-BMS. Created visualization can be displayed and controlled via HDMI output and 2 USB ports that enable connection of a mouse/keyboard or dedicated touch for the HMI panel. No PC, additional licenses, or additional costs are required. As MAC controllers are based on the Niagara Framework, it enables the integration of almost any existing protocol on the building network. The onboard M-Bus port, 2 ethernet ports, and the RS485 port can be integrated with just one device. Finally, the controller has onboard dip and rotary switches that can be used as a part of the application. All of the features of the controller are managed by dedicated modules in Niagara Framework to accelerate the installation process and thus reduce labour costs.

Together with HDMI or Android HMI panels, Hybrid IoT Controller creates one of the most comprehensive solutions for Small and Medium-Sized Buildings. Possibilities of the iSMA-B-MAC36NL Controller can be extended by Multiprotocol I/O Modules from iSMA-B-MIX and iSMA-B-MINI Series. Multiprotocol I/O is a group of 18 types of I/O Modules that can work either on RS485 or IP network, supporting BACnet MS/TP, Modbus RTU/ASCII and BACnet IP and Modbus TCP/IP.
To enhance the commissioning process, Multiprotocol I/O Modules come already pre-configured with default Modbus RTU protocol, 115200 baud rate, and Modbus Server address: 1 and 10K3A1(Type 2) temperature sensor.
Within a matter of seconds, the default protocol can be changed to BACnet MS/TP or BACnet Slave with DIP Switch and the Server address configured with rotary switches is then used as a BACnet ID with prefix 826!
