Sedona Framework in the Field

The Sedona technology is fully described at the SedonaDev.Org site. If you are a developer, you will need to visit this site for an in-depth understanding of the technology and to gain access to the complier and the latest Sedona build 1.2.28. By agreeing to Tridium’s Academic Free License (3.0) you can download the build. There is much to see on this site including the Sedona code that makes up the Sedona 1.2.28 components by Tridium which we refer to as Tridium-release components. It was never the intent of Tridium to create all the components that would be used by the Sedona community. The community was to contribute to what is called custom hardware-independent kits and custom hardware-dependent kits. Under this tab we will only discuss the Tridium-release components because they form the basic building blocks of Sedona. For information on Sedona community contributions, refer to the Resources tab.

If you are a system integrator or just want a casual understanding on how applications are created with Sedona, you can read further under this tab. There are descriptions on the Tridium-release components and a tutorial on how they are used. However, the best way to learn about Sedona is to test drive it. Community member Contemporary Controls offers a free Sedona Application Editor and a Sedona Virtual Machine that will run on a PC. You can create the same examples used in the tutorial to increase your familiarity with Sedona. You can find the download instructions under the Resources tab.

  Tridium’s Sedona 1.2 Component Descriptions
Components are deployed in kits which are available from Tridium, Contemporary Controls and other members of the Sedona community. Kits without a company name are from Tridium. Kits with a company name and no product name are from a Sedona community member and these components can be used with other Sedona devices. Kits with both a company name and product name are hardware dependent thereby limiting portability. What follows are component descriptions of Tridium-release kits compliant with Sedona release 1.2.28.

  Tutorial: Using Tridium’s Sedona 1.2 Components with Workbench
This tutorial assists in the understanding of the Sedona components provided in Tridium’s Sedona-1.2.28 release. New with the 1.2 release is that the Sedona components, previously concentrated in one Control kit, are now organized in smaller kits under a functional name. Components discussed in this document can be found in the following kits: basicSchedule, datetimeSTD, func, hvac, logic, math, pricomp, timing and types.
