Trend Open Network Node is a networking device that enables the Trend system to interface and integrate with third party systems.
Trend Control Systems’ Trend Open Network Node (TONN) is a networking device that enables the Trend system to interface and integrate with third party systems like BACnet, LONWORKS, Mbus, MODBUS, SNMP, and KNX. The TONN uses the Niagara AX Framework to integrate HVAC systems and non-HVAC systems in a building. The introduction of the TONN into Trend’s product offering opens new opportunities for interfacing and integrating into a customer’s Building Energy Management System (BEMS). Using the Niagara AX Framework, the TONN can communicate to a variety of building systems including meters, boilers, access systems, and many more to create seamless control and communication throughout a building. By using a TONN, a building or facility manager can now view, monitor, and control all aspects of a building using a centralized Trend system thereby saving time and money with a reduction in repetitive and redundant supervisory actions.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
