Introducing the OptiFlex™ BACnet Building Controller for Flexible, Scalable, Multi-equipment Control
ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 14, 2019 — Automated Logic Corporation (ALC) is proud to introduce its new high-performance OptiFlex™ BACnet building controller, which serves as a key component in the powerful WebCTRL® building automation system (BAS). With official release slated for the first quarter of 2019, it features built-in routing and integration capabilities, along with support for up to nine expansion modules and 180 input/outpoint (I/O) points. Automated Logic, a leading provider of innovative building management solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The new BACnet
building controller is the latest controller to be added to the
OptiFlex family, Automated Logic’s next generation of flexible,
scalable building controls. With support for so many I/O points, the
OptiFlex BACnet building controller can control multiple pieces of HVAC
equipment simultaneously while supporting complex building control
strategies. The HVAC equipment can then be managed from any web-enabled
device using the WebCTRL building automation system, which provides
operators with a robust set of online tools so that they can monitor
the health of their equipment in real time – at any time.
Ideal for controlling central plants, air handlers, and rooftop units, the OptiFlex BACnet building controller can be DIN-rail or screw mounted and supports Automated Logic’s communicating sensors for sensing environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity and CO2 in a building. It conforms to the BACnet building controller (B-BC) device, as well as the BACnet Router (B-RTR), and BACnet BBMD (BBBMD) profiles as defined in the BACnet standard 135-2001 Annex L 2012, and is BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) certified. Features include:
routing of BACnet communications across multiple network topologies
including BACnet/IP and BACnet/Ethernet (up to 1GB), BACnet MSTP,
and/or BACnet over ARCnet. Also provides additional flexibility by
connecting three different BACnet networks.
• Support for up to 9 input/output expansion modules in a compact configuration or remotely mounted up to 1000 feet away (180 input/output points total).
• Integration capabilities for connecting and managing up to 200 Modbus points.
• Support for customized control programs built with Automated Logic’s EIKON® graphical programming tool.
• Built-in diagnostics to help operators troubleshoot BACnet network communications. Operators can visualize network statistics including logs/counters, transmit/receive activity, and network traffic latencies for the connected BACnet networks.
• Ability to capture BACnet network traffic either continuously or on-demand and save to a file for uploading into third-party network analysis tools.
new OptiFlex BACnet building controller is slated for release in March
2019. If you would like to learn more about the new OptiFlex BACnet
