Install building automation system wirelessly leveraging silex's industry proven enterprise Wi-Fi Bridge
Silex's Ethernet to Wi-Fi bridge seamlessly transfers data from Ethernet to Wi-Fi network when it operates in the single client mode. BACnet over IP and Modbus TCP data can be now over Wi-Fi. Silex's bridge is equipped with 802.1X Wi-Fi authentication by a Radius server. Therefore, you can integrate building automation system into the enterprise Wi-Fi network through silex's bridge.
Silex's enterprise Wi-Fi bridge makes your controller installation much more affordable and much easier than ever.
Retrofitting legacy building with new building automation system often faces to technical and financial challenges due to cabling. However, you will barely find HVAC, VAV or other building automation system equipped with a wireless connectivity. Silex is with you to bridge between your Ethernet controller and your Wi-Fi IP network.
The connection between your controller and silex's Wi-Fi bridge is simple. Thanks to the low power consumption of the Wi-Fi bridge, there is a high chance to power the silex's Wi-Fi bridge with a USB port equipped with your field devices such as HVAC/VAV controllers1. In this case, you will not need to worry about the power cable installation for silex's bridge. And, the bridge eliminates the need for CAT cable installation for your controller.
