The Universal Manager is an electronic device designed to monitor and control various end devices for building automation applications. This Manager consists of a printed circuit board housed in a plastic shell. External connectors are available for the following:
- 6 universal inputs
- 4 analog outputs
- 2 binary outputs (dry contact)
- LAN (Ethernet cable)
- RS-485 device (Modbus)
- Power supply
The Universal Manager is compatible with BACnet (IP/Ethernet) and oBIX. This device has optional wireless modules to enable bidirectional communication with EnOcean and ZigBee end devices. As well, Managers may also communicate with each other wirelessly using an IEEE802.15.4 based mesh network.
Universal Managers are fully programmable and are designed with wireless Lighting as well as HVAC applications in mind. They can also be used to control a wide range of wired and wireless IEEE802.15.4, EnOcean and ZigBee compatible end devices, including light sensors, light switches, relays, thermostats, card readers, and magnetic door contacts. They are also targeted for commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings.
