The software provider presents intelligent solutions for medium and large building automation projects at its stand A66 in hall 9 of this year’s Light + Building.
Its main product, the NETx BMS Server, is an OPC Server with interfaces to common protocols and systems like KNX, BACnet, Modbus, MIRCOS Fidelio/Opera, Protel, and VingCard, just to name a few. The NETx BMS Server is to be considered as multi-protocol gateway for bidirectional data exchange between these protocols and systems as well as other OPC servers, and both OPC and BACnet clients. The diversity of interfaces allows the user manifold applications in the building automation sector.
Import of multiple ETS projects
The possibility of importing several ETS projects is often demanded in large KNX installations. By prepending the group address with the IP address of the respective KNXnet/IP router or interface it is possible to handle multiple KNX installations with separated ETS projects in one NETx BMS Server. The import of KNX projects from ETS4 or 5 can be done by using the NETx BMS App.
NETx BMS Server 2016: Secure access via web
As a novelty, NETxAutomation presents an enhanced version of the NETx BMS Server. It provides a new, purely web based management interface called NETx BMS Web Manager. To access this interface a standard web browser is sufficient. Secure remote access is guaranteed by using TLS/SSL. The web interface has a modular design and consists of multiple apps, each of them providing different management functionalities.
NETx Voyager 2016: Import of AutoCAD drawings and SVG files
NETxAutomation’s central visualization is a PC-based solution called NETx Voyager. In combination with the NETx BMS Server it offers multiple applications. The NETx Voyager 2016 allows the import of DWG/DXF/DWF and SVG files using an integrated CAD tool. A new part of the version 2016 is the Object Manager – an add-on tool for configuring control elements and visualization objects. Furthermore, the new version offers free scalable visualization pages.
The interested user can gather more information about the NETx BMS Web Manager, additional interfaces, new modules, and other features of the 2016 versions at the company’s stand at the Light + Building. Both versions will be available soon.
