THE LONWORKS SYSTEM

Echelon Corporation is the developer of LonWorks technology, recognized internationally as a standard for interoperable control networks. The LonWorks system is a networked automation and control solution for the building, industrial, transportation, and home markets.

In a LonWorks network, no central control or master-slave architecture is needed. Intelligent control devices, called nodes, communicate with one another using a common protocol. Each node in the network contains embedded intelligence that implements the protocol and performs control functions. In addition, each node includes a physical interface (transceiver) that couples the node microcontroller with the communications medium. A microcontroller is best described as a highly integrated chip that has been designed to perform very specific tasks.
