BMS systems are “Intelligent” microprocessor based controller networks installed to monitor and control a buildings technical systems and services such as air conditioning, ventilation, lighting and hydraulics. More specifically they link the functionality of individual pieces of building equipment so that they operate as one complete integrated system. Now installed in every major building or facility with the availability of direct integration into all other building services such as security, access control, CCTV, fire, Lifts and other life and safety systems. Current generation BMS systems are now based on open communications protocols and are WEB enabled allowing integration of systems from multiple system vendors and access from anywhere in the world.
System Control points
Electrical Distribution Panels and Smart Meters.
Air Conditioning System.
Fire Alarm & Fire Fighting.
CCTV System Monitoring.
PABX and Wireless Communications.
Air Quality and Ventilation Systems.
Set up schedules of operation for the equipment and lighting systems so that energy savings can be realized when the building or spaces in the building are unoccupied.
BAS control algorithms as reset schedules for heating plants, static pressure control, and other systems where energy savings can be realized through these predictive programs.
Monitor energy usage including the ability to meter electric, gas, water, steam, hot water, chilled water, and fuel oil services.
Communications abilities to be integrated with other building automation control systems and TCP/IP. BACnet compatible or other open source communication protocol is a plus.
Send alarms via email, pager, or telephone to alert building managers and/or technicians of developing problems and system failures.
The system to compare space temperature, outside air conditions, and equipment capabilities so that the equipment can be turned on at an appropriate time to ensure space set points are achieved before occupation.
