Abstract

The performance of the LonWorks® technology has already been pointed out in Sect.  1.7.2.2. It is an open networking solution for building automation and control networks that was developed by the American company Echelon. It is designed in such a way that it can be used in centralized building automation controllers as well as in decentralized building control components. LonWorks is a standardized bus system (ANSI/CEA-709.1-B and EN ISO/IEC 14908) that enables intelligent devices to communicate with each other over a locally operated control network. LON stands for local operating network.
