Air-Fi® Wireless Communications

A communicating and sensing technology that allows the different parts of a building system, from your HVAC and building controllers, to communicate wirelessly.

Why Air-Fi Wireless?

  • tc-icon-quality.png


    Redundant communication paths are created through a wireless mesh.

  • tc-icon-flexibility.png


    BACnet/Zigbee provides standard, open communications to all systems.

How does Air-Fi Wireless work?

The Air-Fi® Wireless Communications Interface (WCI) enables wireless communications between system controls, unit controls, and wireless sensors for Trane® control products that use the BACnet® protocol. The WCI replaces the need for communications wire in all system applications.

The Air-Fi® Wireless Communications Sensor (WCS) is compatible with any Trane controller that uses a WCI. The WCS provides the same functions as many currently available Trane wired sensors. No further software or hardware is necessary for site evaluation, installation, or maintenance.

Adherence to ANSI/ASHRAE® Standards 125-2016 (BACnet Zigbee®), enables secure and reliable wireless monitoring and control over commercial building systems. It also conforms to the IEEE® 802.15.4 standard, which ensures that your wireless BAS Communication system will reliably coexist with other wireless systems, including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
