Green Box Controller
Gathers, stores, distributes, and presents wireless data, commands, plus alarm notifications on excursions
The Cypress Envirosystems Green Box Controller (GBC) is a centralized control device that collects data from and sends commands to Cypress Envirosystems field devices and enables access to data from a variety of users and interfaces.
For users with existing data management systems, it can forward data seamlessly to integrate with third-party building automation systems, SCADA or IT infrastructure using a variety of open communications protocols, e.g. BACnet, OPC, ODBC, web services. For users who do not need to connect to existing infrastructure, the GBC can also serve as a standalone front-end interface. Standard PC workstations can become operator stations simply by using a web browser. Alarm notifications may be sent to cell phones, PDAs or email.
