Trend Control Systems’ Trend Open Network Node (TONN)Trend Control Systems’ Trend Open Network Node (TONN) is a networking device that enables the Trend system to interface and integrate with third party systems like BACnet, LONWORKS, Mbus, MODBUS, SNMP, and KNX. The TONN uses the Niagara AX Framework to integrate HVAC systems and non-HVAC systems in a building. The introduction of the TONN into Trend’s product offering opens new opportunities for interfacing and integrating into a customer’s Building Energy Management System (BEMS). Using the Niagara AX Framework, the TONN can communicate to a variety of building systems including meters, boilers, access systems, and many more to create seamless control and communication throughout a building. By using a TONN, a building or facility manager can now view, monitor, and control all aspects of a building using a centralized Trend system thereby saving time and money with a reduction in repetitive and redundant supervisory actions.
