Tridium's Niagara FrameworkTM Adopted by Emerson's Computer Process Controls for Food Quality Products and Services

contemporary Richmond, Va.,  - Computer Process Controls (CPC), a division of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), and Tridium Inc., a leading provider of Internet-enabled, automation software infrastructure and applications, announced today that they have entered into a multi-year strategic alliance. As part of the alliance, CPC will use Tridium's Niagara FrameworkTM open system infrastructure to build software applications that  will allow its customers to enhance the capabilities of CPC and other control systems installed in supermarkets and other retail facilities. 

Tridium's Niagara Framework solves the challenges of managing multiple communication standards and multi-vendor control devices used in today's facilities by allowing companies to build software applications for accessing and controlling many diverse process control and building control systems - regardless of manufacturer, platform or communication standard. This open, Java-based framework integrates open protocols such as BACnet®, LonWorks® and Modbus*, as well as legacy monitoring and control systems with the Internet into an interoperable, application development environment. Users of the software can monitor, automate and control their temperature, heating, ventilation and other control systems from anywhere in the world via the Internet. 

As the leading supplier of electronic control and monitoring systems to the supermarket industry in North America, CPC has adopted the Niagara Framework to develop an integrated building facility management system known as VeriSite*. VeriSite is an information delivery system that allows users to collect and aggregate data contained in mechanical and electrical systems, such as air conditioning, refrigeration and heating units, from multiple facilities into one presentation screen. Through an Internet/Intranet connection, customers can quickly and easily evaluate and adjust systems to assure optimum efficiency, maintenance and food quality.

Tridium Inc. develops and markets a universal software infrastructure - known as the Niagara Framework - that allows companies to build software applications for accessing, automating and controlling smart devices in real-time over the Internet. This open, Java-based framework integrates diverse systems, devices and communications standards into an interoperable, Web-enabled application environment.  Additional information about Tridium is available at
