Session 2 Trane – Lynxspring Relationship For a New Integration Platform
Objective of the Integration Sales Training The new integration platform The applications and fit with Tracer How to leverage capabilities for incremental business The business process Provide information necessary for sales personnel to successfully present and sell the new integration platform
Background and Vision for the Integration Platform
Background A new construction oriented controls provider Controls sold primarily with equipment Strategy is leveraging depth of knowledge in HVAC applications Provide open, standard systems (protocols) – LonWorks, BACnet and Modbus Promote integrated systems and solutions Trane
Current Integration Capability Open system oriented – BACnet at the system level – LonTalk at the field controller level – Investing in new, open standards – Effective for newer systems and future installations Minimal capability to integrate proprietary systems – Varying methods – Replace rather than integrate - expensive. Investment required to develop software and drivers for Trane designed integration platform (Tracer SC) – Time – Schedule
Integration Vision Renewed focus on retrofit Ability to provide system solutions To the customer... “Yes, we can work with your current system” “Yes, we can provide an integrated solution” Trane controls product portfolio includes an integration platform Integration platform facilitates more Trane controls, contracting and service sales in existing buildings Integration platform extends Tracer ability to expand Trane retrofit capability
New Integration Platform Lynxspring JENEsys™

Targeting Opportunities Local market assessment – Competitor relationships – Competitors’ market share and service records – Open architecture vs. legacy protocols Local resources – Competitive systems service capability – Integration experience Customer pain – Technical pain – Relationship pain – Financial pain
Qualifying Opportunities 1. Identify legacy systems Identify and understand the use of legacy systems in customer facilities 2. Acquire system knowledge Acquire knowledge about the design, operation and programming of relevant competitive automation systems 3. Develop an integration and migration path Develop overall (initial and ongoing) integration and migration path for system improvement and customer satisfaction Utilize a simple project development process!
Developing Opportunities Consider legacy system impact on contracting – Clear scope with regard to integration – Comprehensive network design and documentation – Intelligent estimates – Qualified subcontractors Understand funding mechanisms – Planned upgrades (capital projects) – Operations / maintenance (expense projects) – Energy savings / efficiencies (cost reductions) Apply legacy-system-specific resources – Qualified control system technicians – Networking (IT) expertise – Correct tools and training
Leverage Opportunities Deepen your relationship with customers disgruntled with competition who don’t feel they can afford to replace all existing controls Gain access to sell service contracts Use data to feed intelligent services Pull through Trane controls Pull through Trane equipment Increase scope of performance contracts Pull through turnkey contracting “Embrace, if you can’t replace!”

Discussion Your best guess at 2 opportunities for integrations
Questions: Section 2
Session 3 Where Does Lynxspring Fit Definitions Target Application Related Applications Exception
Gateways vs. normalized data JENEsys™ is an integration platform JENEsys™ “normalizes” integration data JENEsys™ is not a gateway
Gateway Translates protocols – typically using a matrix type equivalency table – N to N relationship Very specific to revision level on both sides – Difficult to upgrade either side without causing a problem Requires extensive support from vendor at the corporate level to implement. Must be cooperation between parties involved. Cost will vary from expensive to very expensive

Gateway – N to N Example
Normalized Data Is a relational database function Brings all data into the platform Has higher data integrity Provides a uniform view of device data Is less subject to “versioning” issues Allows the data to be output into multiple formats (e.g. one to anything conversion)
Normalized Data… Is like Microsoft’s Windows Operating System that provides rules to application developers specifying “look and feel” and terminology (e.g. File, Edit, Insert etc) that enable users to intuitively navigate new applications. JENEsys normalization provides a similar structure and rules enabling building automation integrators to intuitively navigate and interact with disparate control systems. Integrators appreciate that all information is presented in the same format with same look and feel.
Takeaways on Normalized Data Provides more robust interface Easier data handling for integrators More flexibility in providing interfaces One to anything capability Less prone to re-visioning issues
Target Application Integrating 3 rd Party Control Systems into Summit Purpose: – Allow Trane to take over accounts – Integrate existing systems into Trane networks – Customer investment in other controls is not lost – Trane can install its controls downstream

Exceptions Circumstances under which you should look into using some of the more advanced capabilities of Jenesys: Trane equipment “under” legacy user interface Database Integrations – Tie Trane solutions into the corporate db structure JENEsys™ Web Services LonWorks, BACnet, Modbus Integration
Related - Trane equipment “under” legacy user interface Trane Equipment Addition to Network Existing Control System
Exception - Database Integrations Trane Summit Network Niagara AX Web Supervisor Export using: .pdf .csv .txt SQL queries Oracle queries Java Email SNMP Web Services HTML XML OPC
Exception - Web Interface Preferred solution for Web interface applications in Trane is Tracer Summit WebOps, or Tracer SC. Any JENEsys™ controller can add WEB UI Services to the platform with a license file either before or after the initial sale. Use JENEsys™ WEB UI if: – Your support people wish to have access to the JENEsys™ platform with a web interface – The spec calls for Niagara with a Web UI Interface – Or if you want to provide embedded ProBuilder
Exception – LonWorks, BACnet or Modbus The preferred method of integrating LonWorks or BACnet is the BCU. Modbus can be added to the BCU with the Field Server OEM option. Any JENEsys™ controller can add LonWorks, BACnet MSTP, BACnet IP, Modbus RTU or Modbus TCP to the platform with a license file either before or after the initial sale. Use JENEsys™ LonWorks, BACnet if the JENEsys™ has available resources and is installed already; if there is a requirement for BACnet MSTP or if integrating non HVAC third party devices. Use the JENEsys™ Modbus as an equal alternative to Field Server.
Section 3 Takeaways Target application is JENEsys™ used as an integration platform for legacy systems Related applications include Niagara specified projects, (interim), and Non – HVAC Integrations.
