Protocols Overview

The EcoStruxure Building Operation software supports the major communication protocols in building automation and security management.

Central IO Modules Overview

All modules connect to a hardware terminal base backplane. When the Central IO module is installed on that terminal base, the EcoStruxure Building Operation software associates the Central IO module with the position of the terminal base. There are a maximum of 32 positions per I/O bus that any terminal base can occupy.

For more information, see Central IO Modules Overview .

MP Controller Overview

The MP controller is an IP-enabled, native BACnet field controller from Schneider Electric. It is a highly flexible, open protocol device that is fully programmable through the EcoStruxure Building Operation software for control and supervision of equipment typically used in HVAC applications. Its mix of universal I/O and intelligent SpaceLogic sensor support allows for a wide-range of control solutions.

For more information, see MP Controllers Overview .

BACnet Overview

The EcoStruxure BMS is a native BACnet system with features that enable you to create and manage an interoperable BACnet building automation system according to the ASHRAE Standard. The EcoStruxure BMS features and components support the BACnet services in all five of the BACnet interoperability areas.

For more information, see BACnet Overview .

b3 BACnet Device Overview

b3 BACnet devices are a family of intelligent, programmable, stand-alone devices that provide Direct Digital Control of air handlers and systems as well as individual terminal units: VAV boxes, fan powered induction units, unit ventilators, and heat pumps.

For more information, see b3 BACnet Device Controllers .

MNB BACnet Device Overview

MNB BACnet devices are a family of programmable, stand-alone devices that provide direct digital control in a building's environmental control system. MNB BACnet devices comprise MNB-70, MNB-300, MNB-V1, MNB-V2 and MNB-1000 devices. MNB devices support S-Link sensors, which are designed specifically for use with these devices.

MNL LonWorks Device Overview

MNL LonWorks devices are a family of programmable, stand-alone devices that provide direct digital control in a building's environmental control system. MNL LonWorks devices consist of standard MNL LonWorks devices and MNL-800 LonWorks devices. MNL devices are complemented by S-Link sensors, which are designed specifically for use with these devices.

For more information, see MNL LonWorks Device Overview .

Modbus Overview

Modbus is a master/slave protocol used for communicating with industrial hardware. The protocol works by one master device requesting data from (or writing data to) one or more slave devices.

For more information, see Modbus Overview .

I/NET Overview

I/NET is an integrated building management system that uses software and a mix of hardware to provide environmental control, access control, and energy management solutions. I/NET uses a proprietary, token-passing communication protocol, operating in a tiered LAN architecture.

For more information, see I/NET Overview .

NETWORK 8000 Overview

The NETWORK 8000 system is a modular and integrated facility management system.

For more information, see NETWORK 8000 Overview .

MicroNet Overview

MicroNet provides control of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) devices such as fan coil units, heat pumps, rooftop units, boilers, and air handling units

For more information, see MicroNet Overview .

Sigma Overview

Sigma is a building management system that comprises controller device and communications components which can be applied to a variety of environmental and building control services. The system components are seamlessly linked by a suite of user interface and control software called Satchwell Sigma.

For more information, see Sigma Overview .

Infinet Device Overview

Infinet devices are intelligent, programmable, stand-alone devices that provide cost-effective Direct Digital Control of air handlers and systems, as well as individual terminal units: VAV boxes, fan powered induction units, unit ventilators, and heat pumps. Using the EcoStruxure Building Operation software, you configure an Infinet network that connects WorkStation with AS-P servers and Infinet devices. Their true peer-to-peer communications protocol provides the Infinet series with the ability to instantly communicate with a AS-P server and its entire network of devices.
