ISPBC CERTIFIES iCONNET SPB EMS CONTROL SYSTEM BY CONTROLNET INTERNATIONAL INC.
(Washington DC, September 22, 2011) International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) awards Platinum Certification for the iCONNET SPB EMS (Energy-Management-System) developed by Controlnet International Inc. as the core operating system for next-generation self-powered-buildings (SPB).
Co-developed with RSI ENERGY GROUP (www.energy.tm), iCONNET is a scalable multi-voltage smart engine and electricity network system. It manages and controls buildings of tomorrow with the most efficient integrated smart-home functions, designed to inter-connect clusters of SPBs into energy cloud networks.
ISPBC recognizes that today’s green buildings and consumer-electronic appliances progressively use more DC-power, like LED-lighting, and wind-power and PV require multistep conversions between AC to DC and vice versa. The current building electricity system is not designed to provide integrated and optimized connectivity, resulting up to 30% of avoidable electricity losses.
The AC/DC optimized iCONNET system is designed to support the multi-voltage SPB. iCONNET represents the brain of the future self-powered buildings (SPB). It maximizes the energy efficiency of conventional AC-powered buildings with enhanced intelligent functions and adaptabilities for DC-powered appliances and a smart storage solution with guaranteed lifespan of five years. The integrated design of iCONNET can also provide more seamless smart-home controls surpassing current market products that require API translation which may have limited connectivity and compatibility issues.
The iCONNET is a customizable and scalable modular array system that can go into any existing homes and large commercial buildings, but it is optimized with architecture and protocols for future SPBs. Existing market demand has kept CONTROLNET at full production capacity with new facilities scheduled for 2012.
International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) is dedicated to advance, develop and drive Self-Powered Building (SPB) innovations and practices with a global action plan. ISPBC offers fully integrated solutions on a practical level including complete technology resources, products, knowledge, software, financial and business models. www.ISPBC.org
