Protocols

Benefiting from a common language

These days, in a number of fields, there are many available technologies and communication protocols. The performance of a building automation system depends on seamless communication among its various components. Regulvar has set itself apart from the competition by adopting advanced digital technologies and developing high-performance tools to ensure interoperability.

The company has developed its solutions around BACnet®, the only protocol developed specifically for building automation, which helps devices made by different manufacturers communicate effectively within the same building. Developed by the non-profit organization ASHRAE in 1995, the free and open BACnet® has become the most-used protocol in the world.

Regulvar has designed and developed an innovative gateway (RUBI or Regulvar Universal BACnet Interface) to seamlessly connect BACnet® devices to those using other protocols. This product has allowed Regulvar to adopt wireless technologies and become the first company in the world to connect BACnet® devices with those based on EnOcean® technology, a private protocol mainly used for lighting control.

Other protocols integrated by Regulvar include Zigbee®, an open protocol designed for building automation, LonWorks®, MBus and Modbus®.
