Do you need to integrate a Caterpillar Generator or Diesel engine into your SNMP or building automation using BACnet or Metasys by JCI ? Case study

GE Lighting Controls

Need to integrate GE’s Total Lighting Control (TLC) systems into BACnet, Lonworks and other networks?

This smart FieldServer driver is easy to configure and can auto-configure itself as a BACnet server.

We can provide a FieldServer driver and integration solutions for TLC. Use a FieldServer, equipped with this driver to connect a GE network’s Rlink device to any of FieldServer’s protocols.

The driver is capable of polling for status data, sending commands to operate the relays, sending commands as if a PSS switch had been operated, receiving unsolicited status messages from the TLC network.

It can also allow GE / WinControl software to tunnel through the FieldServer to configure the TLC devices without requiring an additional Rlink.

On-Site Support

In Feb 2006 we were on-site in Lima Peru helping Siemens test and install FieldServers using Profibus, MXL and Modbus.

We can provide an engineer to support you during installation and commissioning. Add our FieldServer, BAS and PLC skills and you know you have the right team working for you.
