ARENA NX v4.4

CentraLine are also pleased to announce the arrival of the latest version of their powerful supervisor ARENA NX v4.4.

ARENA NX, a BACnet supervisor, integrates HVAC systems and non-HVAC systems (e.g. lighting, access control, alarm systems, fire protection and others) in a building or throughout several buildings. It enables easy operation of complex facilities, extensive data acquisition and evaluation capabilities in a building, as well as interdisciplinary automation strategies – all of which are designed to increase comfort, whilst simultaneously reducing energy and maintenance costs.

The primary applications are those where several CentraLine HAWK, EAGLEHAWK and/or EAGLE controllers communicate within a network and with other systems using TCP/IP communication standards (such as BACnet/IP, LON over IP, oBIX, OPC (client), Modbus TCP, KNX/IP and SNMP and others). Both IP and non-IP-based systems can be simply integrated via CentraLine HAWK devices.

ARENA NX provides visually processed and easy to understand real-time information, such as central control icons, data recording and archiving. User-configurable dashboards can be used to group important information together, and system-wide alarm management is easily and quickly enabled.

This latest version offers a significantly improved user experience:

• Point list view – retains the familiarity of known software using standard browser technology, but now comes with enhanced GUI enabling:- the viewing of core point information; quick fi ltering for points in alarm/overridden state; the ability to save point lists as favourites. Users can now convert complex schematics into an easily understandable, tabular format for a comprehensive overview of system health status

• HTML5 C-Bus Scheduler – all C-Bus features are fully supported without the use of Java applets, and HTML5 views are included for compliance with current cyber security standards. Accessible via PC browser and mobile devices

• Care Import Wizard – signifi cantly improves the experience for offl ine engineering and overall engineering effi ciency; provides an intuitive Guided Import Process for transfer of the entire engineered plant and point structure from CARE without additional effort. Supports BACnet IP and MSTP; and both Physical and Virtual C-Bus protocols

• Enhanced Schedule View – Our new schedule view offers an enhanced user experience. The common, easy to use schedule has a modern look and feel, whilst utilising HTML 5 to remove the necessity for additional browser plug ins.
