Satchwell Micronet driver for Niagara allows seamless communication between Micronet MN controllers and Niagara powered devices, including Vykon Jace, Honeywell Hawk, Trend TONN, and JCI FX, via NCP protocol.
The driver allows simple and easy integration of Micronet BMS with Niagara front-end or with multiple BMS protocols supported by Niagara, including but not limited to Modbus, M-bus, BACnet, KNX, novaNet. No extra hardware or software for Satchwell Micronet devices is required.
Satchwell Micronet is a well-known building management system operating on many site within Europe. The system includes programmable controllers sold under Satchwell, Invensys, TAC, and Schneider Electric brands.
Depending on hardware configuration Satchwell Micronet controllers could communicate via three different protocols: Native Communication Protocol or NCP, ARCNET, and LonWorks. NCP is built-in protocol, available on all device models, ARCNET and LonWorks require extra option cards.
