Sontay now offers a Tridium NiagaraAX driver for its SonNet range of wireless sensors for temperature and relative humidity. This development makes possible quick and seamless integration with Tridium’s range of JACE controllers as part of a NiagaraAX framework for building-control systems and opens up the system to BMS protocols such as BACnet, LonTalk and Modbus.

Sontay offers two receiver types with the new driver. One is the RF-RFX DIN with rail-mounted housing to provide a serial connection to COM1 or COM2 of a JACE unit. The other is the RF-RXS-N, an internally mounted JACE option card version.

SonNet wireless systems are claimed to have total installed cost 30% less than wired systems. The next phase in SonNet product development will offer further savings in equipment and commissioning, such as about £100 per I/O not being required.
