17 March 2009
Wonderware, a business unit of Invensys, has expanded its partner ecosystem with the addition of Echelon and ConneXSoft to the Wonderware Innovation Partner Network. This expansion reflects a significant commitment by Wonderware to develop more open and integrated solutions for facility and energy conservation management applications.
With the selection of Echelon and ConneXSoft as Endorsed Software and Hardware Partners, Wonderware will work closely with these companies to develop cooperative energy and facility conservation solutions that are easy to use, engineer, install and maintain. In addition, each partner will participate in new business development and joint marketing activities worldwide.
“By working with industry leaders such as Echelon and ConneXSoft, Wonderware customers will benefit from significant cost savings through levels of innovation, service and support,” said Rashesh Mody, Wonderware vice president of global product management. “These partnerships will offer more open choices for customers who are looking to quickly address the need for energy efficiency and cohesive management at their facilities by linking into their existing building automation systems and equipment.”
Wonderware and Echelon solutions have been used together extensively worldwide for facility and energy management. This partnership enables the two companies to continue to work closely together on technical integration of their key technologies, including Echelon’s i.LON, SmartServer and Wonderware System Platform software – built on open industry standards-based ArchestrA technology. The i.LON SmartServer enables Wonderware customers to control, monitor and manage virtually any electronic device in a LonWorks network, and offers energy-saving benefits for many industry segments, including retail stores, quick-service restaurants and monitored street lighting systems. Wonderware System Platform software provides a single, unified platform for the Scada, supervisory HMI, MES and EMI software solutions needs of industrial automation and information personnel.
