Sontay’s Managing Director, Trevor Palmer, says: “Kele is a well-known name within the building automation industry and the company has been around for many years, offering great service and high-quality products to its customers. The company’s ethos fits perfectly with our own and we are eager to develop and strengthen our relationship in the coming months and years.”

The SonNet family of wireless sensing devices provide accurate measurement of temperature and relative humidity within a building and communicate these readings reliably to its control system. With self-healing tree topology, SonNet eliminates concerns over reception and reliability that are often associated with existing point-to-point wireless systems. Judges were impressed by this system’s self-diagnosis capability, and the fact that it is an easily retrofitted solution in existing buildings.

SonNet consists of battery powered sensor nodes together with permanently powered network receivers and routers, and software. It is designed around a robust 2.4 GHz, 802.15.4 self-healing tree topology which eliminates the need for structural cabling during sensor installation for an HVAC control system. This enables faster and easier installation on new buildings, where project timescales for controls installations can often be extremely pressurised as well as provide a saving of over 25% on total installed costs.

Sontay products and control solutions can help improve building management system performance, reduce energy and maintenance costs and increase occupant comfort levels.
