The requirements and amount of information in building engineering systems continue to rise.
The more technical a building is the more complicated the installation and system operation.
The Building Automation System (BAS) core functionality is to keep building climate within a
specified range, light rooms based on an occupancy schedule, monitor performance and
device failures in all systems and provide malfunction alarms. Automation systems reduce
building energy and maintenance costs compared to a non-controlled building. Typically
they are financed through energy and insurance savings and other savings associated with
pre-emptive maintenance and quick detection of issues.
A building controlled by a BAS is often referred to as an intelligent building or
"smart building". Commercial and industrial buildings have historically relied
on robust proven protocols like BACnet.
Almost all multi-story green buildings are designed to accommodate a BAS for the
energy, air and water conservation characteristics. Electrical device demand response is
a typical function of a BAS, as is the more sophisticated ventilation and humidity
monitoring required of "tight" insulated buildings. Most green buildings
also use as many low-power DC devices as possible, typically integrated with power
over Ethernet wiring, so by definition always accessible to a BAS through the Ethernet
connectivity. Even a passivhaus design intended to consume no net energy whatsoever
will typically require a BAS to manage heat capture, shading and venting, and scheduling
With tighter operating budgets, stricter government guidelines and increasing public
awareness, energy savings and resource conservation have become top priorities in the
public and private sectors. And with those priorities, sustainable building operations
have become a real balancing act between energy use and occupant comfort.
Access DNSI offers a wide range of building automation systems for a
variety of installations including heating, ventilation, air conditioning and cooling.
Our building management installations are carefully designed and professionally installed to
minimize installation and operating costs.
We offer building automation cabling installations for all building types, sizes, and for every use.
Thanks to open communication standards and interfaces you can integrate a wide choice of different building control
disciplines like heating, ventilation, air conditioning applications, lights and blinds,
up to safety features, and equipment.
With special features such as centralized, intelligent energy management and highly
efficient and innovative energy saving functions, and the effective interaction of all
system components and processes you will achieve significant cost and energy savings.
Access DNSI installs systems for companies including Trane, JCI and Siemens and we assist with the integration of all Building Management Systems. We also provide energy and other utility metering through the systems to log usage trends.
