The energy management and automation controller ISY994 from Universal Devices has obtained certification for the OpenADR 2.0b standard.

Universal Devices notes that the latest OpenADR standard is being used by many utilities in the U.S. and beyond to manage demand response programs. The company adds that the ISY994 supports both OpenADR and SEP protocols and has been used in various demand response trial programs in California and Nevada.

"By providing full support for OpenADR and HAN, the ISY994 seamlessly integrates the two most important smart grid and demand response standards," comments Michel Kohanim, CEO of Universal Devices. "The ISY994 combines this with an autonomous and automated platform, supporting off-the-shelf devices, making it optimally suited for energy management solutions for residential as well as commercial venues."
