Sontay expands Smart Communication sensors

Sontay, BMS, BEMS, Controls

Sontay has expanded its range of Smart Communication sensors to offer system integrators, contractors and building-services consultants more choice. Following the success of the predefined range, Sontay has created a ‘build-your-own’ sensor with a variety of capabilities, depending on customer budgets and needs. Prices start at £75 and rise with increasing proficiency.

These sensors measure a selection of variables — including temperature, CO2, fan speed, relative humidity and more, subject to the model built. All sensors can communicate via the BACnet, MS/TP or ModBus RT protocols.

Multiple measurements are taken over a 2-wire data bus, with the capability of automatically detecting baud rates.

The Smart Communication range includes a touchscreen thermostat that can be flush-mounted or surface-mounted.

Also coming this year is a smart power and energy meter to enable users to monitor and manage their energy usage while transmitting data via ModBus RTU or BACnet MS/TP. These meters are compatible with current transformers from 5 to 5000 A.
