CAN2GO™ is perfect for new installations and retrofits, in all building types - whether as a stand-alone solution or integrated to an existing BACnet IP system.

Light commercial & mid-market

Commercial buildings of less than 100,000 sq.ft. represent 98% of commercial buildings and 65% of the commercial floor space. This market is largely underserviced because of the high fixed costs (software, server) of traditional building automation systems. With their embedded gateways and web servers, CAN2GO controllers reduce the fixed costs of BAS and provide a shorter payback for this untapped market.

   

Retail

   

Offices

   

Hotels & Hospitality

   

Schools

   

Telecommunication equipment and utility substation buildings

   

Factories

   

Historical & heritage buildings

   

Government buildings

CAN2GO is one of the most advanced and less invasive systems on the market. Local, state and national government offices looking for the greenest, most flexible and efficient building automation solution can use CAN2GO with confidence.

   

Laboratories

Laboratory environments require precise monitoring and control, as well as compliance to stringent rules and norms. CAN2GO is industrial grade and offers high quality products with the accuracy, flexibility, certification and quality control necessary to match the most demanding clients.

CAN2GO has building automation solutions for HVAC, lighting & metering applications for retail, office, hospitality, schools, factories and institutional buildings.

Faster installation, integration and payback

CAN2GO reduces the labor, hardware and software costs of building automation by offering powerful and flexible solutions based on wireless, automation and web standards such as EnOcean, Zigbee, BACnet, Modbus, CANbus and IP/Ethernet.

  • Less wiring = Less labor = Less downtime
  • Wireless control + networking = Less wiring = Less labor

CAN2GO controllers are equipped with embedded BACnet gateways, converting wired and wireless end-devices into BACnet objects for seamless integration. Because of their embedded gateways, CAN2GO units can also manage HVAC and lighting applications simultaneously. This reduces the need for external gateways and application-specific controller, pulling down the hardware and integration costs of building automation.

  • Controller & gateway in one unit = Less hardware & integration costs
  • No software or server cost = Faster payback

With CAN2GO controllers, adding wireless sensors, switches, relays, thermostats or other end-devices is easy. Unlike physical inputs and outputs, wireless I/Os are not limited by the number of connectors a controller has.

  • Wireless I/O = No point count = Flexibility and scalability

CAN2GO reduces labor costs with the use of wireless, but also reduces fixed hardware and software costs. First, by combining lighting & HVAC in a single controller and providing embedded BACnet gateways. Second, by eliminating software license and server costs through its embedded web interface.

  • Lower fixed costs + Less labor = Shorter payback
Applications

CAN2GO products are polyvalent. They have been designed to tackle several different tasks and applications.

CAN2GO™ controllers can manage lighting and HVAC at the same time. No need to purchase separate controllers for each application, no need to install everything twice. CAN2GO™ controllers inputs and outputs bring the lighting and HVAC world together for the benefit of contractors and end-users.

Lighthing, HVAC and more, all within a single controller. No need to buy separate controllers for each application. Save on hardware and installation by using less, more powerful controllers.

Bidirectionnal, programmable, wired and wireless VAV controller.

Powerful, programmable and polyvalent controllers for the most industrious applications.

    Polyvalent, powerful, programmable controllers for your machine room needs.

    With support for wired I/O, BACnet, Modbus and ZigBee, our controllers can manage and integrate a large variety of meters, submeters and pulse counters, for electricity, gas and water.

    Wireless

    We have controllers that do both seamlessly. They are equipped with an EnOcean transceiver, a ZigBee transceiver, as well as regular inputs and outputs, offering two-way communication for simultaneous wired and wireless control. Our controllers convert end-devices (wired, wireless (EnOcean, ZigBee)) into BACnet objects, so no gateway is required.

    EnOcean and ZigBee are wireless protocols used by hundreds of products from dozens of manufacturers. You can easily find end-devices that use EnOcean and ZigBee for the wireless control of HVAC and lighting, including: thermostats, temperature sensors, humidity sensors, CO2 sensors, actuators, light switches, light sensors, relays, occupancy sensors, access keycard readers, door & window contacts, meters and submeters, etc.

        Networking

        Our controllers and gateways are equipped with a ZigBee transceiver, enabling them to communicate wirelessly with each other. This wireless ZigBee mesh network is self-forming and self-healing.

        Our controllers and gateways are equipped with an Ethernet port, enabling Ethernet/IP networking.

          Building Management System

          Our controllers and gateways all have embedded BACnet/IP gateways and servers. They can easily be integrated with third party BACnet IP building automation systems (BAS) and building management systems (BMS).

          The CAN2GO web BMS is hosted directly by our controllers, so no external servers or software are needed to manage your system. If you would like to use the web BMS without using our controllers, we have a stand-alone version that can be hosted by other servers.

            OEM

            Do you want your solutions to be augmented with wireless capabilities? We have cutting edge expertise with regards to EnOcean wireless communication and ZigBee wireless mesh networking. Chances are we can help get your products talking.
