Automate building operation
The Beijer Electronics building automation concept gives you many advantages. Our open, scalable solution helps you automate the operation of your buildings by providing complete control of indoor climate and all technical systems – optimizing energy use. At the same time the building industry is adapting to a new world of Big Data and new, more advanced technologies. Technologies known as proptech or property technologies which refers to the increased digitalization of buildings, real estate business and sometimes entire cities. Beijer Electronics is part of the solution.
Integration of systems
Integrate all equipment and subsystems, regardless of manufacturer into a single system that offers great opportunities and greater cost-efficiency. Our building automation concept consists of a software package combined with hardware to control a ventilation unit and a sub-center. When commissioned, applications are downloaded to a Nexto PLC, G series distributed controller and to X2 series HMIs with iX HMI software. Sensors, loads and drives are connected to the PLC either directly or via G-series distributed IOs using standard field buses.
Experience shows that energy consumption in a property or property portfolio can optimized by using strategically placed energy meters. Values are transmitted from energy meters and stored in the databases in our control and monitoring system using open communication protocols. Our reporting tool creates the required reports to get a clear overview of energy consumption. Experience shows you can save up to 30 percent on energy using our solution.
Our HVAC solution meets all requirements for indoor climate and incoming media, creating an optimal climate for everyone in the property. Energy meters are connected via converters to our HVAC solution and used directly in control to optimize energy use. This can be achieved by using BFI-E3 or BFI-H3 frequency inverters to control fans in the building.
Control and monitoring
Our powerful control and monitoring system makes it possible to control and monitor all important functions of the property and simplify work for operators and technical personnel.
Open framework and smart functions to reduce engineering
By using our building automation solutions you will get a well-proven and open framework to integrate control of HVAC, light, climate control with fully documented program code CODESYS and iX. This includes:
- Open framework with dedicated function blocks and program code.
- Function blocks are adapted to different segments from ready-made functions covering alarm handling, oxygen control, pressure regulation, etc.
- Functions are pre-set for IOs, CODESYS, iX and cloud.
Powerful CODESYS controlOur control systems feature CODESYS control - a fully integrated IEC 61131-3 development tool. Powerful with integrated compilers, object-oriented programming, alarm management, add-ons such as UML/SYN integration and fully adaptable to your systems requirements. CODESYS offers true code transparency between systems.
