Carrier® Enhances i-Vu® Building Automation System to Support Carrier Open and Carrier Comfort Network Systems
Oct 30, 2013
FARMINGTON, Conn., US
Carrier introduced the latest release of the i-Vu® Web-based BACnet® building automation system, which now offers full support for both Carrier Comfort Network® (CCN) and Carrier i-Vu Open (BACnet) systems. This new version of i-Vu allows customers to keep their existing CCN investment while expanding their control system with Carrier’s i-Vu Open (BACnet) controls now or in the future. Carrier, the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Once i-Vu combines with the CCN or BACnet system, customers can manage their entire Carrier control system through a single i-Vu user interface. This allows them to:
• Connect seamlessly to Carrier equipment that has factory-integrated BACnet or CCN controls;
• View and control their building from anywhere in the world using a standard Web browser on desktops and tablets;
• Graphically configure and view schedules, set points, trends, alarms and reports; and
• Integrate and control other systems in the building using all major protocols.
“As part of Carrier’s ongoing commitment to innovative building control systems and solutions, the company continues to enhance the i-Vu building automation system,” said Mark Jones, business manager, Carrier Controls. “It has always been our goal to provide all Carrier customers, both new and existing, with all of the powerful features that i-Vu provides. We are pleased to announce that customers can now use i-Vu to manage all of their Carrier control systems, whether that system is CCN, BACnet or a mixture of both.”
