Innotech Omni U10 Universal Point Remote Expansion Module

Need More Points? We've Got You Covered

Each Omni U10 Remote Expansion Module (REM) provides 10 additional Programmable Points (UI/O) for the connected Omni controller.

The Omni C40 controller can support up to five Omni U10s (90 UI/O total) and the Omni C20 controller supports up to five Omni U10s (70 UI/O total).

Compact and VAV Controllers

The Omni Compact Controller range offers programmable points, enabling it to monitor and control all types of external plant and equipment.

It is primarily designed for the air conditioning and building automation industry. The small size of the Controller also gives it the advantage of being able to be installed in small places.

The creation of control strategies is made simple with the Focus engineering software. With it's powerful graphical programming interface, Focus allows the user to create a project-wide control strategy.

Why Choose Omni?

Programmable Points

Finally a truly Universal Input/Output (UI/O)

Omni is equipped with an Innotech-designed, industry-first microchip (Programmable Point) that is independently programmable as any type of Input or Output.

This is one of the most significant savings for Innotech clients and why Omni is so competitive. Omni’s Programmable Points allow every point on the controller to be used as any type of Input or Output, meaning you can use every point on the controller without waste, reducing costs by decreasing the number of controllers required on a project. Innotech clients will never have an issue of needing 1 extra Sensor Input, but having 4 spare Digital Outputs, which is a common problem with regular BEMS hardware.

Omni allows a programmer to create custom sensors and save them to their Focus library. They can then re-use these on future projects and share them with the rest of the Innotech community. As every Omni point is identical, this creates uniformity and simplicity for commissioning and ongoing service, maintenance and support.

When used as an Input, the supported point types include:

  • Voltage Inputs (Scalable from 0-10VDC)
  • Current Loop Input (0-20mA, with no external resistor)
  • Digital Input (Voltage or Clean Contact)
  • Pulse Counter Input, Multi-Voltage selection up to 100 kHz
  • PT100 – 2 Wire (0-400ºC, but also programmable adjustability)
  • Thermistor (10kΩ NTC typical, but also programmable adjustability)
  • Lux Sensor

When used as an Output, the supported point types include:

  • Voltage (0-10VDC)
  • Current Loop (0-20mA)
  • Digital Output (Voltage 0, 12VDC)
  • Digital PWM (Up to 976Hz)
  • Digital Pulse Output (10 micro-seconds to 250 seconds)

Any point. Input or Output. You decide.

Simplified Native BACnet Communications

Native BACnet communications ensures seamless connections with other BEMS

Although Innotech have been using BACnet as a preferred integration solution for many years, Omni is Innotech's first Native BACnet Controller which creates many new opportunities for Innotech partners, and significant benefits for clients. Omni applies "Innotech usability" to many complex BACnet processes, ensuring simplicity for existing and new Innotech users.
