LONMARK International to Offer Free Education Sessions and Members to Showcase Multi-Protocol Demo at AHR 2019


January 08, 2019

LONMARK International to Offer Free Education Sessions and Members to Showcase Multi-Protocol Demo at AHR 2019 WHEN: January 14-16, 2019, Georgia World Congress, Atlanta, GA


WHERE: LonMark International will be in booth #C5020

LonMark’seducation sessions to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Room B309


WHAT: LonMark International, a non-profit corporation supporting the testing and certification of products, people and companies supporting the ISO/IEC 14908 body of control networking standards. At AHR Expo,LonMark will be highlighting new and exciting developments at our booth #C5020. LonMark will host a demonstration utilizing controllers that simultaneously communicate using the predominant Open Protocols – LON-FT, LON-IP, LON-HDPLC, BACnet-IP, BACnet MS/TP and BACnet-FT demonstrating a variety of wired and wireless media types working concurrently and interoperably. These controllers are not gateways, but rather directly integrated with each other – a significant enhancement to the world of open protocols. The demonstration will highlight the wiring, network performance, data throughput speeds, and functionality of the various options and how an integrated network allows for better control.  The demonstration will be highlighted both in the LonMark booth and during the 9:30 AM session of our free education sessions which run all day Tuesday, Jan. 15, 8:00 a.m.-6:30 p.m. in Room B309.

This session will discuss best practices to integrate cloud IoT applications and traditional BMS applications.

Speakers: Rich Blomseth (Adesto), Matthias Lürkens (Gesytec), and Tracy Markie (Engenuity Systems)


9:30 AM – 10:45 AM– Synergies Between BACnet and LON  

With the advent of new multi-protocol controllers, controllers can contain both the LON and BACnet stack and can communicate LON over FT, BACnet/IP over FT, and BACnet MS/TP over RS-485 simultaneously and can all be accessing the same points in the controller.
