Distributors will learn more about the Contemporary Controls' CTRLink – Ethernet for Automation products including managed and unmanaged Ethernet switches, media converters, PoE injectors and splitters, and our new IP wired and wireless routers. There will be a wireless M2M demonstration on how best to avoid firewall restrictions within buildings in order to gain access to installed automation equipment. Another demonstration will show how the popular Wireshark network protocol analyzer is used with Contemporary Controls' new Diagnostic Switch to capture all network traffic without the need to install an obsolete single-speed Ethernet hub. The Diagnostic Switch becomes an indispensible, but low-cost, device when troubleshooting difficult network problems.
In addition, there will presentations on the company's BASautomation – Building on BACnet product line which allows BAS devices to connect to an IP infrastructure. Not all building automation equipment is BAcnet or even IP-compatible but Contemporary Controls has solutions to these problems. These products include BACnet/IP to BACnet MS/TP and BACnet Ethernet routers, Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU routers, Modbus RTU to BACnet gateways, and Powered by Sedona Framework controllers. Demonstrations will include integrating various Modbus RTU energy meters and thermostats to a BACnet/IP gateway using device profiles developed by Contemporary Controls. Another demonstration will show Sedona Framework's drag-and-drop programming language executing from a simple web appliance.
