Working with a Trend OEM Partner provides several benefits to customers.
Firstly, by having the controller factory fitted with the OEM manufacturers' control strategy, ensures the OEM's equipment operates in the most efficient manner, extending the life of the equipment whilst reducing energy consumption.
Secondly, the controllers' flexibility means that for retrofit projects, where existing Trend equipment is installed, linking products together becomes very straightforward. Trends' policy of backward compatibility means that all new controllers will communicate with existing controllers. It also means anything installed today will work with future products.
Thirdly, a range of communication networks and open standards e.g Ethernet or BACnet provides customers with even greater choice and flexibility.
Finally, should customers wish to integrate their Trend compatible equipment with a new or existing Trend BEMS, then linking could not be easier. Once networked, inter-controller communications can be set to exchange data around the network, building the OEM equipment into a fully integrated controls system.
