The Aurora Universal Protocol Converter from WaterFurnace is now available

The Aurora Universal Protocol Converter (UPC) is now available on Versatec Base, Versatec Ultra and Envision² Compact products from WaterFurnace International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of water source and geothermal heat pumps.


Designed to incorporate the advanced features, performance and controls of WaterFurnace Aurora-based heat pumps into commercial building automation systems (BAS), the Aurora UPC seamlessly communicates with Aurora boards and converts the Modbus protocol to BACnet MS/TP, LON or OpenN2 protocol. The module provides access to unit sensors, relay operations and faults and allows individual unit configuration – all without the need to manually access the heat pump. A portable touch-screen interface gives a technician full access to equipment status, parameter values, temperatures and humidity sensing, as well as access to alarm and trend history.
