EasyIO Launches FT-04 Controller

Broudy Precision

Always innovating building automation, EasyIO launches the much-anticipated FT-04. Nothing on the market like it, at a compact 2 x 2.4 inches, the FT-04 is a small form factor controller for many applications. Wi-Fi only, it can extend control to anything that needs connectivity, control, and monitoring.

In beta testing with EasyIO partners and customers for over a year, users provided feedback on its performance and recommendations for enhancements. Beta users reported a variety of uses for the FT-04 including:

  1. Control motor start/stop and status reporting
  2. Trash compactor pressure data
  3. Temperature control for a heating valve
  4. Inside motor starter for exhaust fan and amperage monitoring
  5. Temperature and energy monitoring of an office
  6. Local on/off/auto controller of a chilled water valve
  7. Control of residential garage doors
  8. Monitor of temperature sensors
  9. Monitor/control of residential water heater
  10. Standalone pump lead/lag controller
  11. Control of dimming ballast
  12. Refrigeration monitoring
  13. Zone control networked with FW controllers

The FT-04 supports live programming and commissioning through onboard dashboards and supports BACnet IP, Sox, TCom and P2P. All models have two universal inputs. FT-04A has two analog outputs and FT-04B has one analog output and one relay output. The HTML5 web server allows you to access the controller by mobile devices or via secure, remote connectivity.

Other key features include:

  • BACnet, TCom and Sox protocol
  • BACnet IP Server over Wi-Fi
  • EasyIO Peer to Peer Protocol, compatible with FS, FG+, FW and FT Series
  • Built-in web server and HTML5 compatible
  • RESTful API and other web services
  • Built-in dashboard
  • Wi-Fi Access Point with DHCP Server
  • Station/Client for production mode 50mm

Like the EasyIO family of network control technology, the FT-04 is a fully programmable device without recurring license, engineering or maintenance fees. You can find the FT-04 through an authorized EasyIO partner.

Software Maintenance Agreements – Protect Your Investment

Broudy Precision

It can never be stressed enough for systems to be kept up to date with the latest software releases. Besides added features and bug fixes, staying current will ensure your installed system will remain safe and secure.

In today’s world, cyber security is extremely important. And to stay protected, system updates are required to be maintained. Tridium is dedicated to continuously improving the security of their products and will continue to provide updates as they release new security features and enhancements.

What is an SMA?

When applied to a Niagara license, the Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) allows the user continued updates to the Niagara software and access to Niagara Cloud Backup as a Service (Baas) throughout the maintenance period. Once BaaS is setup, it will allow for automated backup of JACEs and Supervisors to the cloud. This ensures the data is safe and secure, ready to be used if a failure occurs and a restore is needed.

The cloud-based asset manager tool, accessible thru Niagara Central, provides automated software maintenance management. This allows users to track their Niagara SMA expirations as well as receive email notifications of maintenance expirations and renewals. It also allows for access to device backups via BaaS.

As long as the SMA for a JACE or Supervisor is kept current (not expired), it will be licensed for the latest release of Niagara. The SMA is only part of the solution! Having the latest Niagara release licensed does nothing for an end user without the latest Niagara software being installed. Therefore, it is critical to be sure the latest released version of Niagara is running on each JACE and Supervisor.

Why is it important to renew and maintain your Software Maintenance Agreements?

  • Access to the latest Cyber Security Updates to protect your investment from cyberattacks
  • Access to the latest productivity, functional and visualization enhancements as well as compliance features
  • Utilize Backup as a Service to protect/backup your data and system databases

New IP Ready SE8000 room controller

Broudy Precision

General Information

Providing unparalleled building performance has always been our top priority. Through a single, smart device, the SE8000 Series room controllers deliver the same comfort and control functionality found in direct digital control (DDC) systems, but with added energy savings. Their simple installation provides a quick return on investment for most retrofit projects.

The SE8000 Series room controllers are easily integrated into most building management systems (BMS). It allows upscale hotels, corporate offices, and high-end retail stores to provide an exceptional customer experience. With the new IP Ready SE8000 room controller, we simplify and digitize this range, while keeping the best in class design and screen interface.

Overview

The new IP Ready SE8000 room controller provides the same remarkable benefits you come to expect with the SE8000 series, but simplifies commissioning and requires less catalogue references. The integration in the BMS systems and the connectivity with Building Insights becomes more streamlined.

Less references for the same functionalities:

  • ZigBee communications are now integrated in the unit
  • Relative humidity and motion detection features included on all 6 references
  • Additional LUA script memory and on-board memory.

Compatible with Wi-Fi or Ethernet module providing IP connectivity

  • Fast BACnet IP connection to Building Management Systems
  • More flexible for installers with connectivity architecture options
  • Emails for Building Managers to receive events/alarm, and threshold notifications
  • Path for future services such as multi-applications
  • Path for installer commissioning tool
  • Path for mobile applications for building managers and occupants to monitor and control environment

Add a Wi-Fi Card to the VT8000/SE8000 and get BACnet/IP over Wi-Fi!!!

A solution that makes the VT8000 / SE8000 range even more powerful.

The VT8000/SE8000 room controllers are much more than a simple thermostat. Whether you use them on a stand-alone basis or integrate it into a BMS, the VT/SE8000 gathers and transmits data vital to your customer’s building, from temperature, CO2, and humidity through to occupancy rates and presence detection — all of which can be used to fine-tune heating, ventilation, and air conditioning for optimal efficiency. Now, thanks to the Wi-Fi card, the VT8000 and SE8000 room controllers offer additional benefits by incorporating BACnet/IP over Wi-Fi and email notifications and alerts. Whether you are a BMS expert or a mechanical contractor the Wi-Fi card will allow you to reduce installation time and cost while increasing customer satisfaction.

Easy to install and configure in just a few clicks

The Wi-Fi card’s integrated web page makes configuring your VT8000 / SE8000 fast and easy from any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
