CONTROLS & BUILDING AUTOMATION

Controls are crucial for building owners and facility managers, enabling them to monitor and regulate energy usage.

SHEDDING LIGHT ON EQUIPMENT PERFORMANCE

Don’t be in the dark about your equipment’s performance. Unexpected breakdowns lead to costly downtime. Access to accurate data is critical for informed decision-making.

    LEVERAGE DATA FOR STRATEGIC BUILDING MANAGEMENT

    Harness the power of Controls and Building Automation Systems (BAS) to consistently gather and analyze equipment data, providing real-time insights into your building equipment.

    Through alarms, comfort calls, and metering dashboards, manage your building operations effectively and stay informed about potential issues.

      EFFICIENCY WITH VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVES

      Variable Frequency Drives regulate motor speed, delivering energy savings.

      We implement Variable Frequency Drives in various applications, including:

       

      • Building Exhaust Fans
      • Make-up Air Fans
      • HVAC Return Air Fans
      • Cooling Tower Fans
      • HVAC Supply Air Fans
      • Chilled & Condenser Water Pumps

      ENERGY SAVINGS WITH AIR-SIDE ECONOMIZERS

      Utilizing air-side economizers can significantly cut energy usage in buildings by employing cool outdoor air for indoor cooling.

      When the enthalpy of outside air is lower than that of recirculated air, outdoor air is more energy-efficient than indoor air conditioning.

      Sample Projects

      SEAFOOD CORPORATION

      Installed occupancy sensor for lighting control of second-floor process observation area. Controls provide energy savings because the observation area is not utilized during all plant shifts.

      CONTROLS FOR CHILLED WATER & STEAM MAKE-UP AIR UNITS

      Installed chillers and make-up air units with chilled water and steam for comfort control on the process floor. Designed all ductwork and controls, sized the pumps, coils, g.p.m.’s, and chiller to meet 80 global wet bulb.

      Controls equipment for:

      • Three 200-ton air-cooled chillers
      • Two 50,000 cfm make-up air units
      • Two 80,000 cfm units make-up air units

      Controls & BAS FAQ’S

      What if I manage multiple proprietary Building Automation Systems (BAS) within a single facility?

      It’s not uncommon for building owners to have different BAS setups, and challenges arise when these systems need to communicate effectively. Our solution to streamline this communication between your various BAS is by implementing JACE, a cutting-edge technology by Honeywell.

      With JACE, you can seamlessly connect a wide range of devices and sub-systems, eliminating the barriers that often arise when dealing with multiple BAS. This opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you the freedom to choose contractors and service providers that best suit your needs.

      WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF BAS MAINTENANCE?

      Neglecting the maintenance and monitoring of a Building Automation System (BAS) can have detrimental consequences, ranging from compromised system security and limited analytics to decreased tenant comfort.

      Preventive maintenance for a BAS can vary, often aligning with the manufacturer’s recommendations. However, some common tasks involved in BAS maintenance include:

      1. Sensor Inspection: Regularly examine sensors to ensure they function correctly and provide accurate data.
      2. Electrical Connection Checks: Verifying the integrity of electrical connections to prevent any disruptions in the BAS’s operation.
      3. Control Device Calibration: Calibrating control devices to maintain precision in system control and efficiency.
      4. Backup Power System Testing: Ensuring backup power systems are operational and can seamlessly take over during power outages.
      5. Software and Licensing Updates: Keeping BAS software up-to-date to benefit from the latest features, enhancements, and security patches.

      By addressing these maintenance tasks proactively, you can ensure the continued reliability, security, and optimal performance of your BAS, enhancing both system functionality and tenant satisfaction.
