October 12, 2010 - CAN2GO announced a Variable Air Volume (VAV) building automation controller capable of bidirectional communication with EnOcean and wired end-devices. The controller features an embedded EnOcean transceiver and EnOcean-to-BACnet gateway, allowing total wireless control of energy harvesting end-devices within an end-to-end BACnet system. Extending the reach of centralized building automation systems, the VAV controller is a fully-programmable device with an on-board pressure sensor capable of meeting VAV application requirements. The CAN2GO controller can act either as a stand-alone product or be integrated into a larger BACnet system.EnOcean is the only interoperable wireless standard that enables zero-maintenance, self-powered, battery-free operations. CAN2GO controllers support two-way communication and control between wired and wireless end-devices. Employed as gateways, CAN2GO controllers convert EnOcean and wired end-devices to BACnet objects, enabling seamless integration into BACnet systems. They can also act as servers, hosting a complete IP web-interface capable of managing all controllers and their end devices.In addition, for further flexibility, CAN2GO controllers can communicate with each other wirelessly, through a wired Ethernet/IP network, or via chain-linked CANbus serial bus.
