Magnum Energy Releases Next Generation BACnet Gateway Device for Enhanced Visibility and Improved Operation of Buildings

Hudson, OH --- Magnum Energy Solutions, LLC announces the release of eBox 2.0, the only seamless BACnet integration gateway on the market for lighting, HVAC, plug loads as well as metering. This next generation technology is based on the exponentially growing success Magnum has achieved – having presently over 10 million square feet of proven building projects already deployed using eBox, with integrations to Johnson Controls Metasys, Tridium as well as Automated Logic. The enhanced gateway is designed to more elegantly and proficiently discover, display, and control device points to support a single uniform building system.

The eBox 2.0 remains simple to use, requiring no programming and no scripting but the hardware received a major upgrade to elegantly streamline the installation and commissioning of building management applications and Magnum’s wireless end devices. The enhanced enclosure is more aesthetically pleasing and allows for various commercial mounting options. Also eBox 2.0 has power-over-ethernet (PoE) capabilities on board, no longer requiring a separate adapter and additionally includes embedded WiFi connectivity as well as the ability to add an external antenna.

Magnum is also planning to roll out a dual delivery capable gateway on the heels of eBox 2.0 that will allow for BACnet-based bidirectional control, while at the same time delivering an input stream of critical data for IoT applications. This innovative new device essentially combines the cBox, Magnum’s wireless to Amazon IoT gateway product, with eBox 2.0. Relevant applications and verticals can then expand exponentially and provide corporate level management visibility into certain parts of the building’s system or even equipment, without the need to understand BACnet or connect to the building automation system.
