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.
Energy savings through destratificationJust as winter is approaching, the current unprecedented energy prices are forcing us to use our energy even more consciously and efficiently. The most obvious measure is to lower the room temperature in our buildings. After all, if the thermostat is set a few degrees lower, a considerable saving will already be realized. However, in rooms with high ceilings, additional savings can be achieved through destratification.>>>
Temperature based air control in shipsThe design of the electronic speed controller GTE21-60-DM is based on years of experience in temperature control in greenhouses and other agricultural applications, combined with an innovative electronic technology. >>>
Global warming and energy efficiencyAlthough summer should be a time of relaxation, this summer seems to confront us with the harsh reality at an unprecedented pace. There is definitely something wrong with our climate and we need to act quickly. The extreme drought threatens to make the Rhine unnavigable and the capacity of some nuclear power plants is being reduced due to a lack of cooling water. In Spain, the use of air conditioning and heating is being restricted, while the war in Ukraine threatens to jeopardize energy supplies over the coming winter.>>>
Ventilation systems in the catering industrySummer has finally arrived and soon we will all be leaving for our favourite holiday destination. After an intensive day of vacation, we often like to put our feet under the table in an authentic local restaurant to enjoy the local specialties. As soon as the fragrant dishes appear on the table and stimulateour senses, we realize (as an HVAC professional) that the kitchen is most likely equipped with an efficient ventilation system.>>>
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.>>>
