Cylon has replaced its UC2000 system with the UnitronUC32 product range which offers greater possibilities for existing and new sites. Through its backward compatibility, Cylon ensures that every site can make energy savings irrespective of site age.
The Unitron system separates control from communication which makes upgrading easier and less costly. A recommended first step is to update software and the communication controllers. Plant and terminal unit controllers can be upgraded later as part of a longer term upgrade plan.
Upgrading to Unitron UC32 offers more reliable and sophisticated datalogs. This is a basic requirement for energy monitoring and the first step towards energy management.
With the new UC32.net communication stations, the coaxial and twisted pair Arcnet network has been replaced with faster TCP/P technology.
The UnitronUC32 system is based around 100Mbps fast Ethernet backbone. Customers upgrading will see dramatic performance improvements. You can leverage existing structured cabling or use separate wiring with all the flexibility of open standard IT systems. Supervision is then possible anywhere on the network.
To obtain top quality support a phased upgrade to UnitronUC32 systems is recommended. All Cylon Approved System Integrators have been trained on this solution by Cylon, and now have teams expert in the UnitronUC32 range. Support for older systems is more restricted with only a limited number of engineers with the specialist skills.
By upgrading to UC32 you have guaranteed access to replacement parts, solutions and software updates.
As a result of continuous development and construction it has become increasingly necessary to facilitate integration with 3rd party systems.
Older systems typically have only basic integration available to them with limited monitoring and control of equipment. The UnitronUC32 system supports a range of new integration standards such as BACnet, KNX, OPC and M-bus. Extended monitoring and control is invaluable in pinpointing and eliminating wasted energy.
The UnitronUC32 system offers an extensive range of supervisor options. New supervisor options include the free Embedded Weblink, the intuitive SiteGuide, the extensible Server WebLink, the comprehensive Unitron Command Centre and a range of 3rd party supervisor options.
When you upgrade to UC32 you can retain and view historical data from older systems via Cylon Command Center ensuring you have all the information required for on going BEMS analysis. Additionally, the UnitronUC32 system includes much more reliable and sophisticated datalogs.
