Trane now provides two new offerings, the Trane Tracer Building Automation System (BAS) Operator Suite mobile app for remote access to the Tracer SC System controller and the new Trane Wireless Comm System, which replaces typical wired communication lines to facilitate on-time, on-budget project completion. This system, which is available now, will also be available as a factory-mounted option on Trane HVAC solutions starting in June.
The Trane Tracer BAS Operator Suite mobile app for the Tracer SC controller provides peace of mind by allowing users to remotely operate a building’s HVAC system and quickly respond to urgent calls and update requests. The building operator suite further enhances the system’s industry-leading using interface and mobile capabilities.
The Tracer BAS Operator Suite works with the Trane BAS controller: Tracer SC version 3.6 and higher. The BAS suite is fully integrated with Tracer SC, users simply log in to a tablet or smart phone to view their building’s status. The mobile app enables users to remotely:
- Monitor equipment
- Make setpoint changes
- View dashboard graphics
- Control spaces
- Manage alarms
The Tracer BAS Operator Suite mobile app works with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices with iOS 5 or 6 and with Android devices. The app is free to download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
Trane Wireless Comm simplifies building projects by minimizing the labor, engineering, estimating and project-management tasks associated with communication link and zone sensor wiring, as well as simplifies problem solving on new buildings, controls upgrades and building expansion projects. Trane Wireless Comm leverages the advantages of self-healing wireless mesh technology with an extended signal range and easy installation, reducing the time required to troubleshoot installation when compared to conventional and competitive wireless systems.
Trane Wireless Comm offers adherence to ZigBee BAS, a global standard for interoperable wireless products, enabling secure and reliable wireless monitoring and control over commercial building systems. Trane Wireless Comm is the industry’s first to run BACnet protocol on top of ZigBee BAS and to be ZigBee Certified. Trane Wireless Comm provides double the signal range of other typical wireless building automation communication systems. This means increased reliability, simplified systems design and minimized use of repeaters.
