Wonderware signs hardware partners for new energy management solutions

Wonderware has added hardware developers Echelon Corp. and ConneXSoft to its ‘Wonderware Innovation Partner Network’, to support its ongoing development of “more open and integrated solutions for facility and energy conservation management applications”.

Wonderware will work closely with Echelon Corp. and ConneXSoft as new Endorsed Software and Hardware Partners. The company said the trio would develop new, co-operative energy and facility conservation solutions that are easy-to-use, engineer, install and maintain.

In addition, each partner will participate in new business development and joint marketing activities worldwide.

“By working with industry leaders such as Echelon and ConneXSoft, Wonderware customers will benefit from significant cost savings through new levels of innovation, service and support,” said Wonderware vice president of global product management, Rashesh Mody.

“These partnerships will offer more open choices for customers who are looking to quickly address the need for energy efficiency and cohesive management at their facilities by linking into their existing building automation systems and equipment.”

Wonderware and Echelon solutions have already been used together worldwide for facility and energy management. The partnership with Wonderware enables the two companies to continue to work closely together on technical integration of their key technologies, including Echelon’s i.LON, SmartServer and Wonderware System Platform software — built on open industry standards-based ArchestrA technology, according to Wonderware.

The i.LON SmartServer is designed to allow Wonderware customers to control, monitor and manage electronic devices in a LonWorks network, and offers energy-saving benefits for many industry segments, including retail stores, quick-service restaurants and monitored street lighting systems, says Wonderware.

Wonderware System Platform software provides a single, unified platform for the SCADA, supervisory HMI, MES and EMI software solutions needs of industrial automation and information personnel.
