Distech Controls has taken a common-sense approach to providing cost-effective, feature-rich LONWORKS® solutions to the building automation industry with more intuitive engineering tools, easy to use LNS plug-ins and efficient graphics development.
EC-Program, EC-Configure and EC-Monitor LNS plug-ins
User-friendly interface for fast and easy custom programming of Distech Controls programmable and configurable LONWORKS controllers
Plug-in will automatically validate entered configuration data according to range for each property
• EC-Program plug-ins are available
for all programmable controllers : any code is easily written using
logic comparators, mathematical operators, and easily configurable built-in
functions (such as timers, control loops, etc…)
• EC-Configure plug-ins are
available for all configurable controllers: through
a series of screens and forms, you can easily configure a multitude of
as: inputs and outputs, heating, cooling and fan settings,
alarm conditions, PID parameters, network variable settings.
• EC-Monitor plug-ins, available for configurable controllers,
automatically generate high quality, animated graphics,
for real-time monitoring of the actual performance
(temperature, pressure, humidity) and state of
your device. The graphics dynamically adapt to
the configurations of the device as well as the
values being monitored.
Graphical programming interface for Distech Controls' programmable controllers.
Wide array of built-in basic and advanced programming blocks with features
such as fan-in, PID loops, time delay, schedules, real-time clock, optimum
start, stage sequencing, logical gates, mathematical and comparator functions,
psychometric functions, persistent values, etc.
Support for the programmable controllers' 62 network variables of which 34 are of changeable type and length
Support for all network variables of 1 and 2 bytes including structured snvts
Support for high precision integers with 2 decimal places
Ability to create custom blocks, for specific applications, or repetitive
Offers real-time de-bug mode through dynamic view of the data flows
Generates error and other statistic reports such as memory used, number of PIDs used, etc.
Easy-to-use interface with toolbars, drag and drop creation, moveable boxes, window views, color coding and simple link creation, providing a clear view of your code
Enables wireless solution and support of EC-Smart-Sensors on the programmable controllers
The Lonwatcher 3 network management
tool provides integrators with sophisticated features and all
the resources necessary to install, operate and manage LONWORKS® networks. Lonwatcher 3 introduces a straightforward interface
for LONWORKS networks, allowing simple visualization and documentation
of the control system’s logic.
Based on the LNS TURBO Edition network operating system, Lonwatcher 3 is a performance-driven, high-speed application, allowing a fast response time from the application and increasing user productivity. Lonwatcher 3 is a tree-view oriented program, promoting a user-friendly interface and intuitive navigation through the network, regardless of the amount of devices. Through context sensitive menus and dynamically enabled toolbars, all device, channel, subsystem, functional object and network variable operations can be easily set-up and maintained.
Lonwatcher 3 features:
A LONWORKS network and device manager
Launch any LNS based plug-ins from the application
Advanced user productivity features through batch and one-click operations
Management of multiple networks and databases simultaneously
Set-up multiple devices of same type within one operation
Monitor and manage network variables as well as configuration properties
Host-based node support and creation of dynamic network variables
Easily create and manage channels and routers, bridges and repeaters
Device/object level diagnostics and tests
Backup, restore, import and defragment database
Simple launch of networks and plug-ins by double-click selection
Ability to work offsite by working unattached or in Offnet management mode
Complete user management features, supporting multiple user profiles
Londisplay advanced LNS based GUI package includes a graphical interface builder, Trend and Log Manager and User Manager. It is designed for both local access and control of a LNS based system and for remote access and control via the internet or dial-up phone lines. Londisplay significantly reduces engineering time and costs, allowing the creation of a custom and interactive visual interface for your building automation projects.
Easily create a comprehensive graphical environment of the facility from top-level site plans to equipment details
True drag and drop design functionality from a toolbox
Add menus, animations, text boxes, and navigation buttons within graphics pages.
Ability to display and interact with network data points and information
Ability to launch any LNS based plug-ins directly from the application.
Uses standard Windows® interface
Graphics pages are modifiable with common text editors or human readable files
Londisplay also includes:
The Londisplay Trend and Log Manager, allowing mapping of any network variable through the programmable controllers, for historical and real-time trending.
Logging conditions include differential, variations by specified amount and a configurable time basis.
Logs and trends are displayed through a customizable graphical interface
Distech Controls also offers LONWORKS based Web connectivity products to seamlessly link together control and data-networking standards and connect products and networks to the Internet. Distech Controls offers multiple i.LON and i.LON Smart Server products. Please contact Sales for more information.
