  1. Open Systems: A LON Overview

  2. Who is TAC? Our Vision To be our Customers’ preferred provider of Building Environment Services based on Open Systems and Building IT™

  3. TAC History

  4. Recent Events • Acquisition of Control Solutions – January 2002 • Longtime TAC Partner • Acquired by Schneider Electric – August 2003 • $9 billion annual revenue (2002) • 75,000 employees • Presence in 130 countries • Sister companies include Square D & Veris Industries

  5. TAC Growth PROFIT 800% REVENUE 400% *Revenue shown in Millions

  6. Global Presence TAC has installations on all seven continents and 250 subsidiaries and partners in more than 70 countries.

  7. Market Trends Driving Open Systems Individual Devices Complete Systems Proprietary Open Systems Stand Alone Systems Integrated Solutions Local Interface Internet Connectivity Building owners are driving these trends!

  8. Systems Evolution Master/slave Distributed systems Stand-alone controllers Networks Closed, single-vendor Open, multi-vendor End Users are driving these trends!

  9. Why Do You Care? • Education • Customer’s are now educating themselves • Tremendous opportunity to expand your base • Those who adapt to use new technology reap the benefits

  10. Interoperability vs. Integration • Interoperability • The ability to integrate products from multiple vendors into flexible functional systems without the need to develop custom hardware, software or tools • Integration • To allow limited information sharing and interaction between dissimilar systems requiring the use of engineering intensive Gateways • Building IT includes both

  11. What are Your Choices? • Proprietary • Open Systems • ASHRAE’s BACnet • Echelon’s LonWorks

  12. Proprietary Systems Pros Cons • Robust and reliable • Feature Rich • Easy to use front-end • Mature products • Limited integration • Higher maintenance expense • Gateways are necessary • Locked into 1 vendor

  13. Traditional Proprietary Integrated Architecture HMI 1 TCP/IP Or Equivalent HMI 2 Router Router • Tiered Structure • Polling Communication • Gateways a must • Limited Data Sharing C O N T R O L L E R s Gateway C O N T R O L L E R s

  14. Proprietary vs. Open Systems • Isolated subsystems results in limited systems integration • Operations and Maintenance costs are higher • Multiple user interfaces • Open systems allow full information sharing • Economies are gained from shared communication media • Redundant components are eliminated

  15. BACnet • Pros • Endorsed by ASHRAE • Supports Ethernet, token passing, point to point communication • Defined standards • Cons • Vague interpretations of guideline • No guarantee of interoperability • Focuses only on HVAC ORCAview

  16. LonWorks Pros Cons • Over 17 million products in operation worldwide • More than 4500 companies support LonWorks • High degree of flexibility • Interoperable at the hardware level • LonMark Association • New product

  17.

  18. What is a Lon Network? Channel Router Segment Segment Router Repeater T T Node Node NC NC Ethernet Router Repeater TP/FT-10 T T Node Node NC NC Router Repeater T T Node Node NC NC • Physically Tiered, Logically Flat • 2 Segments per Channel (50 nodes per segment) • Node (communicating device) Defined by Transceiver and Neuron Chip • Independent of media

  19. Interoperability Analogy • Personal Computer Industry • Standardized • Compatible products • Interchangeable • Interoperable • Customizable • Cost-efficient • Multi-vendor • Freedom of choice

  20. Open Systems Application • What are the benefits? • Compatible products • Interoperable products • Customized solutions • Cost-efficient installation • Multi-Vendor sourcing

  21. What Does it all Mean? With Open Systems Customers can choose: + The best products + The best application knowledge + The best service Greater Independence & High Quality / “Best of Breed”

  22. Where to Go From Here • TAC is available to: • Assist with specifications • Provide you or your clients with a demo • Tour current or past project sites • Provide references • Answer any questions, anytime
