Honeywell announces WEB-700 building automation controller
July 31, 2010 ‚Äì Honeywell announced its WEB-700 controller that supports multiple applications, including building automation and energy management, on the same platform. The controller, which is built on the NiagaraAX Framework, provides complete, reliable building automation control with fewer components when compared to bulkier, more complex controllers. The WEB-700 controller integrates easily into an existing building management system, serving data and graphical information to a Web browser through Ethernet LAN remotely over the Internet or using a dial-up modem. Real-time data, alarms and other control information are integrated through these powerful controllers.The WEB-700 controller provides several key features including:
667 MHz 440Epx Power PC processor
512 MB DDR-2 333 MHz RAM, field-upgradable to 1GB
One GB NAND flash memory stores database, trends and system software
Backup battery for controller database
Gigabit Ethernet & USB ports
The WEB-700 controller is ideal for use in large facilities, multi-building facilities and large-scale control system integrations.‚ÄúNo longer do facilities need a standalone workstation for large-scale facility control,‚Äù said Dave Molin, general manager, Honeywell Building Control Systems. ‚ÄúThe WEB-700 delivers control information right to a Web browser, so operators can manage a facility more efficiently, conveniently and cost-effectively than before.‚ÄùHoneywell International is a Fortune 100 diversified technology and manufacturing leader, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; automotive products; turbochargers; and specialty materials.
