What is Building Automation? Is it important?
As is known, different Building Automation systems come to life with different providers. The common goal in all these systems is to make the environments we live in more comfortable, and in doing so, they provide additional savings in terms of energy and economy. Of course, saving in energy consumption will make an important contribution in preventing the warming of our world. However, although concepts such as building automation, home automation and comfort automation that have gained speed in recent years sounded good, there are some difficulties in implementation.
FOR A COMFORT / HOME AUTOMATION, THERE ARE MANY APPLICATIONS INSTALLED ON DIFFERENT TOPOLOGIES.
The most basic of these are systems in which Lighting Automation, comfort automation, mechanical automation, energy automation and meter automation communicate via gateways and systems are not fully integrated with each other. If you do not use 2 different brands under the same protocol, it is very difficult to communicate and requires special configurations. This brings the dependency on the company and the chaos in case of a problem. In this case, an OPC server is used, the system is both complicated and slowed down.
A different application is that; This is generally applied in our country. Comfort and lighting automation is done by firm A, mechanical automation by firm B and meter / energy automation by firm C. After all, these systems either continue to operate independently or are collected by a fourth company under another SCADA system.
- Inadequate coordination of systems not fully integrated with each other
- The need to keep 4 separate system backups, therefore additional investment and operating costs
- Confusion of 4 different companies for service and maintenance
- It brings inefficient energy savings.
- WAGO to end all these concept, system and service complexities;
- Not Configured—> Programmable
- Not just KNX, BACnet, Modbus—> Can contain all
- Not just for a particular automation—> Can contain all systems in a building
- It communicates with all the mechanical installation field devices on the market in both BACnet, KNX, LON and MPIM structures of Bellimo and provides brand independent mechanical installation solutions that can work in 100% compatibility.
IN THE WAGO BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEM, THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE PLC IN THE BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS WITH KNX, BACNET, LON, ETHERNET TCP / IP AND MODBUS, HAS A VERY HIGH PROGRAMMING AUTHORIZATION AND A VERY COMPATIBLE AUTOMATIC COMPONENT. UNDER THIS SYSTEM CAN WORK IN THE SAME NETWORK AND UNDER SINGLE BMS AND CAN BE TRANSFERRED DIRECTLY ON THE INTERNET.
BACnet with brand independent field devices, KNX , 0-10V, MP Bus, PWM, RS-485 and on / off control, fan coil, air handling unit, room controls, automatic water cutting systems can be controlled. The most important criterion here is whether BACnet is used according to the American standard or KNX, WAGO according to the European standard, it can operate the system as BACnet, BACnet + KNX and KNX with different controllers. Thus, while the main system is BACnet, communication fan coil thermostats that can operate under KNX can be used under this system. While this system is made with much less wiring and workmanship, it also enables the use of highly modern KNX fan coil thermostats under BACnet. Under the same structure, Bellimo’s field devices are controlled very easily on the bus with our MP Bus module, providing a serious convenience in terms of both wiring and control.
On / Off, DALI, DMX, 0-10V dimming, all kinds of lighting scene control. In this regard, Abdi İbrahim Pharmaceutical Factory and the new Logistics Center, which is an award-winning project, have been controlled individually with the IP address of the 7500 lamps via the IP address, and all kinds of energy consumption have been monitored directly in the PLC, without the use of special WAGO energy analyzers and external analyzers. Within the same project, light effects (such as mexico wave) were created by moving the lamps dynamically according to the sound with the DMX function. Again, transfer panels or generator synchronization boards can be added into the system and the whole system can serve as a whole.
Curtain / Blind Control
With the brand-independent curtain and blind motors, KNX, BACnet, Ethernet, local and central control of unlimited number of motors under the control of rain, temperature, solar radiation value and storm and fire conditions provide maximum benefit from daylight while saving energy. Controls can be done with RS-485, KNX, RF and EnOcean wireless and On / Off buttons. 56 times in 2000. curtains engine center in Turkey’s Sapphire, the highest building in this regard and is controlled locally.As a result of the partnership agreements with international companies in the use of switches, sockets and sensor systems used in living spaces inside the flats as KNX, it completes the integrity of the system seamlessly with quality brands such as WAGO in advanced technology products.For operations such as Datalogger, it can also offer a PC standard with 8GB SD card supported Ethernet 2.0 controllers in the WAGO product family.
