ABB Cylon solution benefits | Consulting Engineers

A global network of  Approved System Integrators






  • ABB Cylon has extensive experience in the energy management and building management system market with over 35 years’ experience, $1.6 billion installations globally delivered through our extensive highly trained system integrator expert network (circa 290 SI’s globally)

Advanced BEMS technology


  • ABB Cylon CBX System offers some of the most advanced BACnet® controllers of their kind, with on-board I/O, optional HOA, multi-protocol support, and a range of FLX (Field Level eXpansion) modules, providing System Integrators with even greater control flexibility.

Open protocols



  • ABB Cylon offers the BACnet open protocol that creates more interoperability, bringing products and information together regardless of sensor or control manufacturer. By deploying the BACnet infrastructure from ABB users are not locked into using control systems from any one supplier, providing more choice and more control.   


The right integration at the right level



Open System KNX and BACnet (MSTP and IP) field controllers with Modbus® (RTU and TCP) extensions

Highly flexible, easily extendable, ABB Cylon BACnet also allows for straightforward expansion or upgrades to the BMS that may be required in years to come, future-proofing today's BMS installations.

  • Simplified integration with many third-party, non-HVAC systems, including lighting and energy management. ABB Cylon’s open platform solutions make integration with 3rd party systems and legacy systems easy, bringing building energy management systems together.

  • Open protocol also provides for ease of upgrades and extension of building management systems.

  • ABB Cylon BMS integrates seamlessly across IT networks, between buildings, and between remote sites, making it ideal for multisite and campus building energy management.

  • ABB Cylon BMS is flexible and scalable with integrated web support, building control and management information are easily accessed and adjusted from standard web browsers.

I/O data point flexibility



  • The entire ABB Cylon range benefits from UniPut™ I/O technology for flexible point configuration and flexibility in strategy changes which has the benefit of minimizing the cost of design changes even at late stages in commissioning.

Extensible flexible design


  • ABB Cylon BMS controllers are uniquely freely programmable and offer enhanced flexibility. With a ABB Cylon controller, you can remotely change the program once installed, allowing you to enter the most innovative strategies ensuring the most efficient strategies are deployed.

Future proof



  • The ABB Cylon BACnet range provides for forward and backward compatibility. Extending I/O or future proofing a site is quick and easy with reduced inventory requirements.



Operational, maintenance, and energy solutions for end-users

Dashboards & Control



ASPECT is an award-winning scalable building energy management and control solution, for full system management utilizing user-configurable dashboards to display/change point values alarms, schedules, graphics, trends, and system variables. Designed to allow users seamless access to their building data through standard building protocols (BACnet, Modbus, Ethernet, etc.) and common IT technologies available on a wide array of computers and smart devices, both iOS, and Android.


Energy Management | ABB Cylon® Active Energy 

ABB Cylon Active Energy is an energy monitoring system that provides real-time (every 15 minutes) information on energy usage and consumption in a building. The toolkit includes tools such as charting, analytics, alerts, and flexible reporting, via simple and user-friendly interfaces accessible on any web-enabled devices. These tools allow the users to monitor energy performance in real-time, to receive alerts when a building's energy performance starts to drift, and, most importantly, to take any required action. Monitor performance at any time by accessing Active Energy on-line via any internet-enabled device.

By continuously monitoring and managing a building (continuous commissioning), building energy drift of up to 20% per annum can be prevented.


Occupant user interfaces | eXplore

Put control in users' hands With on-site UI eXplore, users can easily manage operating parameters of the connected systems: monitoring values, equipment, and system status, viewing trends and active system alarms to perform diagnostics and take corrective actions such as overriding or adjusting setpoints.

Healthcare solutions


University campus solutions



ABB Cylon delivers scalable, front-end building automation solutions, open protocol building controls, and cloud-based energy analytic tools to meet the need of today's high-performance, green-conscious commercial facilities. ABB Cylon can help you integrate smart building solutions into the planning of new facilities, retrofitting to an existing site, or upgrading current systems in a way that optimizes return on investment


As sophisticated needs and extended uptime lead to the high energy consumption of most hospitals and clinics, the healthcare sector offers an unparalleled opportunity for facility managers to optimize and increase energy savings. Whether you are targeting upgrades in an existing system or working to deliver a system-wide solution, ABB Cylon offers the services and products required to meet both the HVAC and energy saving needs of today's healthcare facilities.


Many campuses are a combination of new, aging, and historic buildings, with a proliferation of varying HVAC and lighting systems, and a blend of modern, outdated, or non-existent BMS systems. For facility management teams, managing many disparate systems is time-consuming, operationally inefficient, and potentially costly in terms of energy consumption and equipment maintenance. ABB Cylon smart building solutions integrate and simplify the control and management of campus BMS
