    Building IoT combined with classic building automation

    With the OPEN.WRX AS (automation station), we offer a forward-looking solution for efficient system integration for increasingly complex BA projects. Despite its compact design, the OPEN.WRX controller has the largest range of integrated interfaces on the market: a total of 4 integrated IP interfaces and 4 integrated serial interfaces make the OPEN.WRX series the best choice in retrofit projects. After all, it is precisely in these projects that different systems need to be efficiently networked with each other in a limited amount of space.

    The OPEN.WRX series is the way to the future of building automation: Here, the focus is on high working efficiency and maximum IT security. This is due on the one hand to the shortage of skilled workers in the industry, and on the other hand to the increasing networking in BA projects. Our new controller generation brings together the classic world of building automation and the new world of Building IoT into an efficient and secure overall system on one hardware platform.

    World’s first BACnet/SC controller

    As the first BACnet/SC controller, the OPEN.WRX AS enables BACnet networks to be encrypted in order to operate buildings securely again in the future. Especially in existing buildings with outdated BA systems, it makes sense to use the OPEN.WRX controller as a BACnet/SC hub and thus secure the entire BA network via BACnet/SC. The BACnet routing from BACnet IP and BACnet MS/TP to BACnet/SC is free of charge. From now on, encrypt your projects with the new OPEN.WRX AS – building automation has never been so secure!

     

    Efficient system integration in 4 steps

    Simply flexible

    The new licensing model for system integration makes the use of the OPEN.WRX controller as flexible as possible. Main component are global data points, which can be used arbitrarily for protocol connections like BACnet Client, Modbus Master, KNX or M-Bus. Spontaneous changes in the area of protocol connections, e.g. on the construction site, can thus be implemented flexibly, quickly and easily at any time. Furthermore, smaller connections and connection tests in the project are possible without the purchase of data point licenses, since 25 of these global data points are already included with the purchase of the OPEN.WRX controller.

    Highlights at a glance:

    • 4 integrated IP interfaces & 4 integrated serial interfaces (reduces the required gateways to a minimum)
    • Up to 3 integrated Modbus RTU and/or BACnet MS/TP lines can be used in parallel
    • Flexible engineering of protocol connections through global data point licenses

    Three variants for flexible system integration

    Simply efficient

    Due to the shortage of skilled workers, the focus is on working efficiently with the OPEN.WRX generation. With the most powerful DDC controller on the market, computing processes become significantly faster, saving you a lot of time during commissioning. The OPEN.WRX AS does not reach its performance limits, even in complex SI projects. The new status dashboard and efficient programming with our libraries also further reduce your personnel efforts during project planning. OPEN.WRX AS – the controller that reduces effort!

  • USB-C interface

    Enables fast controller charging (50% faster; saves up to 1.5 h per startup) and quick and easy maintenance and startup through a separate network via USB-C.

  • Status dashboard

    The integrated controller status dashboard reduces analysis time to a minimum and provides maximum transparency.

  • SI libraries

    Preconfigured libraries incl. Commissioning graphics ensure efficient project planning for BACnet, Modbus, M-Bus and KNX.

  • Simply safe

    The increasing networking of systems in the building conversely demands more and more security of the systems used. In the field of building automation, we are now providing the new OPEN.WRX AS, the first BACnet/SC controller and thus an encrypted and standardized interface protocol, thus ensuring maximum security for BA systems.

     

    • Encrypt building automation systems with BACnet/SC
    • Integrated firewall and HTTPS encryption of communication
    • Audit trail: logging and historization of changes to the entire controller configurations

    Additional security with the Service & Security Center

    With the OPEN Service & Security Center and the integrated IT security functions, you protect your DDC controllers and thus your building automation from unauthorized access and cyber attacks from outside. Setting up and adjusting the firewall is intuitive and can be implemented without in-depth IT know-how via preconfigured security modes.

    Simply compatible

    In order to make the use of our new generation of controllers as simple as possible, the compatibility of the new system is particularly important to us. Therefore, we specifically focus on compatibility with the existing DEOS portfolio. The OPEN.WRX series can thus be seen as a complement to the current DEOS system.
