Cytech’s latest introduction – their Logic Engine - is a programmable controller for automation applications. It can replace a PLC (programmable logic controller) and has the ability to interface to most home automation systems.
Research prompted by customer feedback led Cytech to develop a controller for situations that do not require an alarm and related features. An additional benefit is that the Cytech Logic Engine can be used in commercial and industrial applications where a central controller and scheduler are needed.
The central controller can operate AV, lighting, blinds, heating, airconditioning and irrigation with scheduling and logic conditions. The Logic Engine interfaces to RS232, RS485, Ethernet, C-Bus, KNX, Z-Wave, Velbus, GSM etc. It can also interface between two systems such as Z-Wave to KNX.
Hotel room bedside panels using SCS switches can be operated and there is an iPhone App to control and monitor the system. Cytech’s KT03 touchscreen can be used with the Logic Engine.
In contrast to the company’s COMFORT INTELLIGENT HOME SYSTEM, the Logic Engine is not an alarm system nor is it connected to a phone line or have a voice menu.
