Rapid Gateways

 

 

Integrate your Rapid Engineering ICS controllers into your building automation system or provide remote monitoring / control capabilities.

Our Rapid Engineering ICS driver allows communication with ICS controllers connected on a RS485 trunk. We have gateway devices which can handle from 1-12 trunks. The operational data read from each unit can be made available to any one of over 110 other protocols supported by FieldServer. Thus, the rapid units can be monitored, controlled and scheduled by a remote system. In addition, our gateways can also be web server’s – serving custom web pages animated / displaying real time data from the Rapid Engineering heaters.

Integration into a system allows the heaters to be controlled in a way that best suit an owner’s heating requirements and pocket providing maximum heating when required and reducing energy consumption by adopting effective schedules and control strategies. Using the CAS ICS driver you can also protect an owner’s investment in older equipment which does not have a method for integration into a building management system.
