  1. Specification Development with Competitive Notes Alan Whitby and Team

  2. Agenda • Competing with second tier competitors • Specification development made easier • Specification development tool(s) • Open protocol - where to focus • WIFM in specification development

  3. Second Tier Competitors • BACnet guys  Delta  ALC  Alerton • LON guys  TAC/CSI  Circon  Invensys • Honeywell Staefa • Manufacturers  York  Carrier  McQuay • Other  Tridium  KMC  AutoMatrix  Andover

  4. Second Tier Competitors- Common Issues • Their comfort zone is different • Accent our strengths • Know Trane’s value proposition • Accentuate local & corporate support • Small group of key front-line tech’s

  5. Second Tier Competitors- Common Issues • Inconsistent local support • Long term commitment • Product commitment • Leading edge with computer technology • UUKL and Division 17 • strengths and weaknesses

  6. Second Tier Competitors- BACnet Guys • LON interoperable opportunities • Enclosures for all controllers • English language displays • Web Server application

  7. Competitive Challenges • Alerton • pursuing native BACnet systems from top to bottom • BACnet into Trane w/ BACtalk • unit level controllers.. Watch out when integrating into Summit (Routers required, duplicate object names) • LON…what LON? • do not work well with Trane GCC

  8. Competitive Challenges • Automated Logic • pursuing native BACnet systems from top to bottom • Major OEM supplier - ALC Portal (Liebert, Simplex, Multistack, Systecon, etc.) • LON is currently only a vision • Work good with Trane GCC

  9. Second Tier Competitors- LON Guys • Shared networks • Set-up tools • Chiller plant application • Tridium • LNS • Custom integration project • System integrator

  10. Competitive Challenges • Invensys • BACnet @ system with UNC (Tridium Jace), SIM-Trane 232 • LON - I/A Series • UNC’s, even HQ can’t get to work • Financially insecure company, branch offices for sale

  11. Second Tier Competitors- Manufacturers • York • commitment long term • I/P networks • LonWorks gateway • Optiview chillers • Data bridge for BACnet • ISN Millenium • new product line

  12. Competitive Challenges • York • Disjointed between Airside / Waterside • Waterside • BACnet XL Server now Databridge for BACnet, BACnet MS/TP controllers, Modbus Microgateway, LON Microgateway - a mismatch of products • Airside • BACnet XL Server now Databridge for BACnet • ECO-2 OEM’d from JCI same as Microtech II

  13. What Are They Up To? • Carrier Corporation And Tridium, Inc. Announce Development Agreement • Tridium's Niagara FrameworkTM will web-enable Carrier Comfort Network™ products and services and integrate open protocols for interoperable systems • FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 11, 2002 - Carrier Corporation, and Tridium, Inc., a leading provider of Internet-based control and automation infrastructure, today announced the formation of a development and sales agreement. The agreement will provide Carrier with a web-enabled software platform, Tridium's Niagara Framework, to further broaden Carrier Comfort NetworkTM (CCN) products and services.

  14. 33CN-ETHER Converts CCN protocol to Ethernet 10BaseT Ethernet - UDP(User Datagram Protocol)/IP 33CN-ETHER max 32 devices PC running ComfortWorks CCN bus

  15. BAClink • CEAS130355 • 100 points per device max. • support only the following products only • 30 GN/GTN/GX/HX Recip. Chillers • 19XR/XL, 17EX, 23XL Centrifugul Chillers • 16JT Absorb. Chiller • 48/50 EJ/EK/NB/NP Rooftops • Air Manager • Chillervisor System Manager

  16. BAClink Ethernet/BACnet Ethernet BACLink processing unit module BACLink Module CCN

  17. We Haven’t Seen Any New Products YetThey are still using these existing products • CNN-ETHER converts CCN protocol to Ethernet 10BaseT • to use existing Ethernet 10BaseT network. • BAClink requires two “boxes” to convert CCN to BACnet.

  18.

  19. Second Tier Competitors- Manufacturers • McQuay MicroTech controls • Package unit interfaces • Chiller Plant control • Controls by MFG • Complete ICS

  20. Competitive Challenges • McQuay • can do BACnet using BACdrop • OEMing LON chiller controllers from Carel in Italy ? • MicroTech II from JCI to do Modbus, LON or BACnet on airside • watch out, ex-Trane employees could have some impact

  21. Second Tier Competitors - Other • Tridium • Honeywell, Carrier, Invensys, Staefa, Who’s next???? • Set-up and Operation • KMC • Low cost, pneumatics, limited support • Intranets, web browsers • AutoMatrix • Andover

  22. Competitive Challenges • Tridium • Niagra Framework have captured the market with first web servers • powerful and flexible products - difficult to program • financially? who knows how much longer • pretty solid with BACnet and LON

  35. Spec Advantages With ZN524 Controls • Hot gas reheat • Water side economizer • Isolation valve control

  36. Spec DevelopmentMade Easy? • An oxymoron? • Gather system info early • Ask three questions • who’s controls will you use? • can I/we help with the spec? • can I have a copy of your base spec?

  37. Spec Development Tools • Define minimum performance • Trane spec • Microelectronic CD • GraphICS • Lynx Document Generator • Microsoft Word - track changes

  38. Open ProtocolsWhere to Focus • Industry specific • BACnet, LonTalk, & Modbus • Internet specific • HTML, HTTP, & XML • Common user interface

  39. WIFM • Cojo’s historical data on ICS jobs • ICS pulls through • service, equipment retrofits • Serving an engineer • widens your/our opportunities • is a complex sale
