MVCweb is Honeywells Ethernet-based, freelyprogrammable
Building Automation controller offering a
combination of BACnet IP, BACnet MS/TP, and LONWORKS®
It demonstrates Honeywells full commitment to reducing total
installed cost and total building lifecycle cost for building
investors and building operators.
MVCweb incorporates the two major open standards in
todays building industry: BACnet® and LONWORKS®.
As a native BACnet® Building Controller (B-BC), MVCweb
integrates into any 3rd-party BACnet® system with low and
Furthermore, MVCweb (in combination with the IF-LON) is a
full LONWORKS® controller. This gives the benefit of making
use of the LONWORKS® product portfolios of Honeywell and
MVCweb can host a huge variety of building management
applications, be it traditional heating, ventilation, and air
conditioning (HVAC) applications, energy management
functions, including optimum start/stop, night purge, and
maximum load demand, supervisory functions for lighting,
sun-blind, heat and energy metering and many other
By virtue of its "peer-to-peer" concept, MVCweb is not
dependent upon the availability of superordinate centrals or
application network controllers.
MVCweb seamlessly integrates into Honeywells EBI and
Reduced the total installed cost:
Existing standard Ethernet/LAN infrastructure is used for
communication between MVCweb controllers, 3rd-party
BACnet® controllers, and BACnet® front-ends. Costs are
further reduced by the flexible and optional use of onboard
I/Os and Panel Bus I/Os.
Via Internet browser, MVCweb can be operated from any
place, from any PC connected to the (MVCweb) network!
An integrated web-server allows local and remote
operation by standard browsers.
When operating MVCweb in IP networks, either private
(e.g., VPN) networks must be used or protection against
the open Internet (e.g., with external firewalls) must be
ensured. See "Network Security" on pg. 6.
Reduced cost for service, operation and maintenance:
Maintenance or upgrade of Operator Interface Software is
superfluous because it resides in MVCweb, itself (singlesource
Communication is based on the following international
standards: BACnet/IP (ISO 16484-5); BACnet MS/TP (ISO
16484-5); LONWORKS (ISO 14908); Modbus RTU Master;
M-Bus (EN 1434-3).
Trending: 100 datapoints can be trended.
Fast application control:
Four selectable control loop priorities (multitasking),
selectable control loop cycle times, and event-driven
switching tables allow for tailored and highly effective
Reliable control performance:
Embedded LINUX ensures reliable, independent, and
secure operation, especially for systems with Internet
Embedded e-mail/SMS alarming:
Configurable e-mail alarming options allow alarms to be
sent (via network or Internet-DSL connection) to e-mail
accounts and thus also to mobile phones.
Honeywell CARE tool:
Allows re-use of existing applications and application
macros, enables highly effective application generation,
and supports online application debugging.
Flexible mounting options: Mounting onto wall or onto
panel back wall, into panel door, onto panel rail, and into
sub-panels (fuse boxes).
