More control capabilities of equipment
In many cases equipment can have only one connection, for example, Global Caché, Marantz, Beckhoff. If you want to control this equipment from more than one panel, a server is required. A server connects to equipment and allows any number of panels to control this equipment.
Gateway between different systems
It’s common practice to use equipment working via different protocols in large automation projects, for example KNX to control light, blinds, shutters, climate, Modbus in engineer systems (pumps, boilers), IP-protocol to control AV equipment.
Thanks to iRidium, there is no need to use different gateways from KNX to other systems. iRidium functions as a universal gateway and a single controller for all systems.
iRidium server works 24/7 and provides remote control of an automation object. A server and a panel interact via our own protected protocol.
Physical interfaces and other protocols
iRidium server UMC has a module structure. It can include KNX, RS 485 (Modbus, HDL), 1Wire, Z-wave. It allows to save on purchasing different gateways and makes integration of different automation systems easier.
Support of most protocols
Our installers love iRidium for supporting numerous protocols. Support of protocols in iRidium includes not only support on the driver level, but also the scanning function, import of settings and other features that make setting easier.
If a system is not yet supported by us, our installers use iRidium driver Development Kit and realize support of required systems themselves.
If your company is a manufacturer of automation equipment, write us. We are open to cooperation and can add support of your protocol to our solution.
Hardware and software realization
Our server has both hardware (iRidium UMC, RPi, NUC) and software (software agent for Windows) realizations. The software can be downloaded from our web-site and can be used in large-scale objects and in a showroom.
Conversion of an automation object into a part of global IoT structure
iRidium server allows to set intellectual data exchange from KNX to Modbus, Crestron, etc., to MQTT and send them to cloud services and IoT platforms. Thus, you can integrate different objects in a single global system.
