Companies team up to provide building automation to light commercial and mid-market buildings

Lynxspring, a manufacturer and distributor of automation infrastructure technology and device-to-enterprise integration solutions, and SCL Elements, the manufacturer of CAN2GO products, have announced a strategic OEM relationship between their companies for sales and service of the CAN2GO product line to Lynxspring's channel of more than 150 integrators and OEMs.

CAN2GO provides wired and wireless building-control products that incorporate complete small-building solutions. These products allow system integrators to design and install cost-effective building control solutions that utilize a mix of EnOcean, Zigbee, BACnet and Modbus standards for optimal device cost and functionality.

“The CAN2GO product extends the reach of the Lynxspring product line into the wireless world,” says Bob Mealey, chief business development officer for Lynxspring, said. “It plays well with our core Niagara-based products. We see the addition of this product line as an opportunity for market expansion and benefiting our entire channel. We are particularly excited by CAN2GO's ability to deliver cost-effective solutions to small-footprint buildings for our national-account-focused channel partners."

“We are very pleased about the combination of our company's products with the strength of the Lynxspring channel,” Louis Hamer, vice president of business development for SCL Elements, said. “The synergy between the JENEsys and CAN2GO wired and wireless controllers and gateways will enable Lynxspring partners to expand their business by addressing the growing retrofit market." JENEsys is an Internet-based integration and interoperability open modular platform, combining automation infrastructure technology and device-to-enterprise integration solutions. It is manufactured and distributed by Lynxspring and uses Tridium's NiagaraAX software in an embedded platform.

CAN2GO products can be used for HVAC and lighting retrofits, as well as metering projects. Small and medium commercial buildings account for 98 percent of commercial buildings, but less than 10 percent benefit from building automation. With CAN2GO, the Lynxspring community will be able to provide flexible solutions for this underserved market. Lynxspring's technologies extend connectivity, integration and interoperability to the millions of building controls devices deployed in the market today, and empowers the collaboration and communication between the enterprise and edge assets.
