Automated Logic Controls


In the simplest of terms, protocols are the communication languages spoken by control devices through networks. They communicate information in the most efficient method possible. Different protocols move information between different controllers, according to established convention.

It is often advantageous for an entire facility to be linked together and with data collected and conditions and results displayed alone or more locations. For two devices to communicate with each other,they must speak the same protocol or have a protocol translator. All of our controllers have the ability to speak multiple protocols. No matter what BAS supplier is present in the building, Addison controllers can communicate without the added cost of a converters or gateways.
