                                                    Building management

                                                    Combine various control systems to achieve maximum savings


                                                    Main drivers:

                                                    “We want our new head office to be as energy-efficient as possible while delivering the level of comfort our employees need. One goal we have is to reduce operating costs and secure green certification for our building.”

                                                    Solution in brief:

                                                    Install a multi-technique Building Management System (BMS) to supervise heating, cooling, air conditioning, ventilation, power, elevators, plumbing, access control, lighting, and blinds

                                                    Solution applicable to large commercial buildings (> 5000 m²)

                                                    The solution is built around a TAC Continuum™ supervision system and subsystems made up of gateways and command-control devices for different applications:

                                                    • An SMI system for window blind control
                                                    • A DALI system for lighting control
                                                    • Xenta controllers for the air conditioning system
                                                    • An access control and video surveillance system

                                                    Heating is programmed on an hourly basis and setpoints are checked to ensure that building temperature is lowered at night and raised before occupants arrive in the morning. Presence detectors plus automatic lighting shutoff functions with re-start capabilities provide further energy savings even
                                                    when employees work after normal office hours.
                                                    Daylight and presence detectors are used to optimize regulation of lighting and air conditioning in each individual office. Lighting, window blind, and cold beams are managed by system scenarios such as presence, natural light, arrival (first occupant), departure (last occupant), and others.
                                                    The solution enables facilities managers to view the status of, monitor, and operate all systems throughout the building, including alarms, temperatures, faults, on/off, and more.
                                                    The TAC Continuum system offers a display detailing energy consumption throughout the building, providing the specific information needed to raise occupant awareness of energy consumption and savings.
