LonWorld a Success

12/01/2005


More than 1,000 people gathered in Paris, France this past month for the annual LonWorld Expo and Conference and LonMark meetings.

At the four-day event, the organization launched a number of new initiatives designed to extend LonMark open systems in building automation, home control, street lighting, network tools and network connectivity.

Among the highlights of the conference, according to the organization, was the finalization of plans to release a profile for data-logging devices and controllers used in building automation systems. The new profile will allow for remotely extracting information that is collected and stored locally in Lon-certified devices. The group also agreed to create a method for testing and certifying programmable devices commonly used in buildings and industrial environments. Elsewhere, the Lighting Task Group is pursuing several new profiles that will support the creation of ballasts capable of changing color to better adapt to their environment. The new ballasts will significantly improve lighting in commercial buildings.
