Ontrol was proud to be a sponsor of the Niagara Summit 2014 held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in April 27-29, 2014.

The Niagara Summit is where the Niagara community comes together to exchange ideas, make connections, gain valuable insight into industry trends and help shape the future of the Niagara platform.

This bi-annual event gives developers, programmers, building owners, engineers and executives a chance to sit down in the same room and share their thoughts on device-to-enterprise applications and automation infrastructure.

The Niagara Summit is all about conversation—with forums, presentations and breakout sessions providing opportunity for the community to weigh in. Nowhere will you find a more engaged, more galvanized community of Niagara devotees, working together to bring intelligence and connectivity to the network edge and back.

A Niagara driver for Grundfos pumps utilizing GENIbus is available from Ontrol. This can be used to connect Grundfos pumps to Building Management Systems and SCADA systems.

GENIbus is an open data communication protocol developed and maintained by Grundfos. It has been optimized for pump control and monitoring, making it an ideal choice for implementing reliable communication in pumps.

The driver enables comprehensive operational data to be retrieved by a supervisory system, including status, setpoints, control parameters, alarm and fault information.
