TREND CONTROL SYSTEMS - TONN Ups Trend Interfacing Options

Trend building energy management systems (BEMS) can now be easily integrated with a wide range of third-party devices and systems that are used for controlling and monitoring building services such as heating and air conditioning, lighting, security equipment and fire detection. This has become possible with the launch of the Trend Open Network Node (TONN), a highly versatile and simple-to-engineer interface unit that enables the company’s BEMS to interoperate with single or multiple systems from other manufacturers. Setting up the unit does not require programming skills.

Every TONN unit provides unrestricted access to a Trend system driver and to the drivers for most of the open protocols that are used in building automation, including BACnet, LON, KNX, Modbus, M-Bus, SNMP and oBIX. For an additional cost, drivers can also be supplied for any of eleven proprietary protocols, including those used by Protec fire panels, Helvar lighting controls and the Fidelio hotel booking system. It is planned that more will be developed.

A single TONN unit is able to route data between a Trend BEMS and several other devices or systems. For instance, it could simultaneously connect to M-Bus meters, Modbus packaged air conditioning plant and LON lighting controls. The unit is equipped with an Ethernet connector, a pair of serial ports (RS232 and RS485) and two slots for optional cards for LON or additional serial ports. It is compatible with BEMS based on Trend IQ3 or IQ2 series controllers

The unit is available in two basic versions: TONN 2 and TONN 6. These differ only in the amount of memory they can provide and thus the scale of application for which they are appropriate. TONN 2 comes in three memory sizes and the larger TONN 6 offers two. On either model if the amount of memory originally specified is too small to meet project needs, it is possible to upgrade to the next size simply by ‘unlocking’ additional capacity. On large applications involving multiple third party systems it may be appropriate to use several TONN units.

If the supervisor on a Trend BEMS is required to act as the operator interface for another system, and this entails the transfer of data from a large number of points, TONN would be used alongside a Trend Open Protocol Server (TOPS). The latter allows the management/monitoring of other manufacturers’ products as though they were Trend devices.

TONN is designed so that it can be set up by the same authorised controls contractors that supply and engineer Trend BEMS. Those involved in engineering the new product will have to attend a 4-day Trend-run training course. Crucially they do not need to be programmers or have an exhaustive knowledge of communication protocols. Moreover, the TONN engineering tool handles in a similar way to the one that they employ for setting up the BEMS.

The new unit’s development has meant that seamless integration with other systems is now generally achievable without necessarily having to involve an interfacing expert. This will keep down project costs and minimise delays.

TONN and the drivers that come with it are fully supported by Trend.
