For the purpose, Sentera developed its free software suite 3SMCenter, which you can download from our website. Its intuitive interface facilitates the process of configuration, monitoring or updating of our products featuring Modbus RTU.
The 3SMcenter suite includes 3 software platforms:
to change firmware of some specific controller series featuring numerous hidden functionalities. Thus, the controller will obtain a functionality that is different from the factory-installed one according to your application requirements.
to configure or monitor Sentera devices via Modbus RTU. Most Sentera products have no trimmers, dip switches or jumpers to adjust settings. Trimmers are not accurate enough and they make remote control impossible. All parameters of Sentera devices can be adjusted via Modbus RTU. The different settings are very precise and can be copied to similar devices easily, in this way a number of devices will feature identical settings and work in unison. Highly accurate digital technology has replaced the good old analogue technology. This digital technology also creates new possibilities like internet connectivity, remote monitoring, remote control, etc. So, in case you want to adjust the temperature range, to limit maximum fan speed or to change a pressure setpoint, we advise you to use the 3SModbus software in combination with the CNVT-USB-RS485 converter.

to update firmware of Sentera devices with bootloader functionality. Via the 3SMBoot software, firmware of Sentera devices with integrated bootloader functionality can be updated. Most Sentera products feature integrated bootloader functionality – consult the product datasheet for more information. A firmware update makes it possible to modify the functionality or to make the product compatible with more recent Sentera firmware version.
The advantages of a potentiometer with Modbus RTUPotentiometers with minimum and maximum limit, working from low to high speed or vice versa, with 0-10 volts, 0-20 mA or PWM output, infinitely adjustable or with adjustable steps (…) were already part of our assortment. Today we have expanded our potentiometer family with the SDP-M010 series that are equipped with Modbus RTU. As a result, not only are the settings available via the Modbus registers, but from SenteraWeb or your Building Management System you can also read the position of the potentiometer and even overwrite the output.>>>
Sentera VAV ventilation systemFor the open house at one of our customers, we built a VAV demo unit in which various Sentera product groups are incorporated to work together as one solution. To explain the complete operation of this installation step by step, we have made a detailed video which you can watch on our Youtube channel. Check out the full article for more information.>>>
Fan speed control made easy!Sentera has a wide range of products and solutions to control fans and monitor indoor air quality. Our product range has a modular structure, which offers enormous advantages. Sentera products are easy to install and they can work stand-alone. If the need changes, additional components can be added afterwards. The connected devices exchange information and work seamlessly together.>>>
Potentiometers requiring a low supply voltageWith the ErP-directives becoming more and more important, there will be a shift from AC-motors towards EC-motors which are much more energy efficient.
We are therefore constantly developing new products and revising existing products to be able to control these EC-motors as accurately as possible.
Sentera provides innovative, easy-to-use control solutions for HVAC installations and ventilation systems. How to optimise your comfort, indoor air quality, safety and overall wellbeing? We have the answer!
