SIGINTE - A modular and scalable Building Management System
J. Torres, Microprocessador (Efacec Group), Portugal

The Siginte/S21 is a Building Management System intended for use on small to large buildings. The system uses Lonworks technology. The Siginte/S21 system includes a family of fully programmable controllers which communicate through a Lonworks local area network, using a powerful protocol.

The upper level includes a PC network with a database and man-machine interface programs for supervision and programming. They communicate using Ethernet and TCP/IP.

The system is flexible and scalable, from just a few controllers and one only PC, to thousands of networked controllers together with up to sixteen workstations. The system was designed to perform well in distributed environments.
