Efficient energy saving
Commercial and public buildings comprises of many different spaces with diverse usage. Smarteh intelligent building automation offers outstanding options for assuring energy efficient and environmentally friendly operation in offices, shops, classrooms, public areas, seminar rooms, conference centres, health and fitness areas, restaurants, kitchens, service areas, outdoor facilities and others.
In accordance to the European standard EN 15232 the potential savings for thermal and electrical energy can be calculated for each class based on the building type and building purpose.
For example, by using class A, 30% of the thermal energy can be saved in the offices.
Same automation modules for entire building
Main control module of Smarteh open Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) LPC-2 system is the heart of the Smarteh building automation systems. Its purpose is to execute application program, communicate through various networks and to exchange data with added input output, communication and peripheral modules. The controller is powered directly from main 230 / 115 V AC power supply.
Smarteh modular controller design allows that same equipment can be used to control the entire building like rooms, offices, shops, seminar rooms, conference centers, health and fitness areas, kitchens, restaurants, corridors, utility rooms, garage, boiler rooms, etc.
The room controller can work as a stand-alone or can be connected to the network. Controllers can communicate with supervision system or other softwares in order to make the functioning transparent and fully efficient. In most cases all the room controllers are connected to the BMS through the local Ethernet network. This reduces the costs of installation since there is no need for pulling and testing additional communication cables.
While all building automation systems are connected to one network and are supervised by a common supervision system, it is easier and much cheaper when it comes to maintenance during the operation of the building.
Due to the above advantage, the Smarteh building automation system is enabling the use of unified spare parts for the entire building.
Special attention was paid to create a user interface peripheral modules of an attractive design that suits even the most demanding standards of a modern building.
