iWorx Enhanced with Open Protocol
> Product News
At the AHR Expo, Las Vegas, NV, January 31, 2011 -iWorx® from Taco Electronics Solutions is an affordable, web-based building management, monitoring and control system designed specifically for high-end residential and light commercial markets.
iWorx is an easy-to-install, simple-to-use, solution that provides a full suite of control product applications that range from boiler controls, heating and air conditioning applications, and even include products for emerging new technologies like BTU metering.
iWorx is now even more configurable and flexible with an interface to the NiagaraAX
Framework that provides simple integration with other Building Automation Systems. With the push of a single button, every iWorx controller is self-discovered on the system network and seamlessly integrates with any existing LONWORKS®, MODBUS® & BACNet® building automation protocol. This allows for the easy upgrade of equipment control, addition of new equipment, building HVAC expansion or integration to an existing graphical front-end.
Designed specifically for light commercial buildings – up to 50,000 sq ft – and high-end residential installations, iWorx is a flexible, easily-scalable means of building control for single locations or multi-building and multi-site installations ranging from retail stores, strip malls and restaurants to offices, apartments and church buildings.
iWorx is ideal for integrating forced air and hydronic systems, including geothermal and solar, and for assuring that each system communicates effectively and works smoothly together. And, iWorx also performs BTU metering.
The online iWorx Selection Wizard ( www.iworxwizard.com
) offers contractors and design engineers the ability to create and specify iWorx projects in minutes. It creates a complete submittal package that includes wiring and air flow diagrams, bill of materials, sequence of operations, and complete job specifications.
"iWorx was developed as a user-friendly, feature-rich, web-based controls system," says Taco Executive Vice President, Residential Division, Chris Integlia. "The open protocol bridge really expands the possible user base and increases the value of iWorx controllers to the building owner or property manager."
Installation of the touch screen system manager and components is easy. No software programming is required and the system is self-configuring. It's modular: add only the controllers you need, not unnecessary functions or expense. Web access permits system monitoring from any web-enabled device or PC.
