Automation with LON is based on the networking of components from different manufacturers in different trades to a uniform system. System integration means both this networking and the associated activities.
System integration includes the planning, execution, commissioning and maintenance, optimization and maintenance of LON networks. Their goal is not only to secure the communication in the network, but to design the components of the network and their cooperation so that the tasks are optimally fulfilled. This requires a holistic approach at every stage.
The more comprehensive the integration of devices and systems into the automation system, the more automation can do to achieve goals such as energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness or transparency. The quality and performance of LON automation networks therefore depends crucially on the scope and quality of system integration.
High competence in the realization of LON projects also have the LonMark Certified Systeminterator.
