E-Mon to incorporate Tridium’s NiagaraAX® and JACE®-2 technologies to extend Internet and Modbus compatible submetering into nationwide building automation and systems integrator markets

E-Mon announced a reseller agreement with Tridium, Inc. in which the former will focus on the development of a full suite of building automation products for the nationwide systems integrator market utilizing the latter’s widely installed JACE (Java Application Control Engine) hardware platform with NiagaraAX software.

NiagaraAX resolves the challenges associated with open systems, integration and interoperability issues by integrating diverse systems and devices into a single unified platform that can be easily managed and controlled in real-time over the Internet. Application development using Tridium’s hardware and software platforms will dramatically reduce E-Mon’s R&D investment and shorten the company’s time-to-market for a wide range of new building automation solutions.

In addition to the development of new products and services, E-Mon’s installed base of almost one-half million pulse-output submeters will now be able to interface to Modbus, BACnet, LONworks and other protocols and web-based options to monitor and control lighting, HVAC, industrial equipment, plug load and other energy parameters.

“We’re excited about partnering with an organization like Tridium, whose reputation as a leading open-systems provider is unequaled,” said Don Millstein, president of E-Mon. “Tridium’s popular Niagara Framework technology is the ideal platform with which to expand E-Mon’s existing suite of building automation solutions, including Modbus-based meters and interval data recorders-with a new generation of interoperable metering products targeting building automation and other high-growth-potential markets.”
