NiagaraAX driver for WEMS wireless sensors

BMS, BEMS, controls, Niagara, wireless, WEMS International

WEMS International has introduced a driver for NiagaraAX that enables its wireless sensors and I/O modules to work with Tridium JACE, CentraLine Hawk and the Distech Controls EC-BOS hardware platforms. The driver uses a special version of the WEMS RS232/RS485 serial interface module to wirelessly enable the hardware platform. Wireless I/O modules then appear in the NiagaraAX Workbench tool as if they were I/O points and can be fully configured using Workbench.

Using wireless I/O modules with NiagaraAX in a seamless manner provides, for example, a cost-effective way to extend existing sites without the cost and complications of hard wiring. Another benefit is being able to retrofit monitoring and controls to buildings where it is not possible to interfere with the building fabric — such as heritage sites and buildings with asbestos issues.

Another benefit is the temporary installation as a demonstration trial of a system to monitor temperature and energy use.
