ABB Introduces FLXeon, New IoT Technology that Redefines Building Automation & Controls

ABB Smart Buildings today announced the release of FLXeon BACnet®/IP automation control solutions to deliver powerful control, connectivity, and visualization for intelligent buildings.

Cylon’s FLXeon, a connected IP controller line that includes the FBXi-X256 and the FBVi-2U4-4T controllers, provides powerful connectivity and advanced control monitoring and analysis for the smart building space.

Today’s smart buildings demand simple integration across systems, and an environment that keeps buildings and occupants safe. The FLXeon platform natively supports industry-standard open protocols straight out of the box and includes BTL certifications across the system’s hardware and software components.

“ABB Smart Buildings is expanding its leadership position in building automation innovation,” said Michael Lotfy, Senior Vice President, Group Head, Smart Buildings Solutions, Americas.  “Buildings are evolving at a rapid speed, energy distribution and management is becoming more critical than ever, and the ecological system of building automation is expanding. With FlXeon, we address an ever-growing market need, answer customer demands, and are building a new foundation that will help our customers achieve their sustainability goals with immediate ROI.”

The FBXi Series is a modular and scalable platform providing BACnet/IP, wired connectivity integration with building management support for both DHCP and Static IP. The controller features support for up to sixteen FLX (Field Level eXpansion) series extension modules providing up to 256 points of control, and a dedicated input for Cylon room sensors.

FLX I/O expansion modules are available in a variety of options to allow maximum flexibility in achieving the required point for configuration. With 2-RS485 Ports the FBXi-X256 controller supports multi-protocol communications simultaneously including BACnet/IP, BACnet MS/TP, Modbus® TCP and Modbus RTU.

The FBVi-2U4-4T is suitable for controlling single duct or fan assisted Variable Air Volume (VAV) zoning applications and is BTL listed as BACnet Building Controller (B-BC). It supports demand ventilation application, occupancy sensing or lighting control to further enhance energy savings. ABB’s patented technology allows the VAV to be configured as analog / digital outputs or voltage inputs. The VAV also encompasses the recently updated ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2019, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.

With the release of FLXeon, ABB is also announcing technical updates to CXproHD 1.03, ASPECT 3.4, and the Nexus Series RS485 Protection bulletin, which are part of the ABB Cylon portfolio.
