DUBAI, UAE, October 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The underpinning aspects of 'smart buildings' is ensuring there is a synergy when it comes to HVAC technology within the infrastructure. GEZE is bringing together these more traditional technologies in building automation with modern innovation solutions by integrating automated doors and windows. GEZE's multifunctional door and window systems can be integrated seamlessly into the existing building infrastructure to optimize automation through network solutions across all product categories. With the introduction of the new GEZE Cockpit building automation system and interface modules to integrate GEZE products and systems into the building network , new opportunities will be created in smart buildings for convenient, secure and energy-saving building operation.
The GEZE Cockpit is used to centrally control and monitor all GEZE products from the areas of door, window and safety technology with the use of separate software applications. Within this category, the BACnet and KNX can be installed and utilized together- the two most popular, open communication protocols in building automation in the world. In exactly the same way, the BACnet building controller enables the simple integration of GEZE Cockpit into the building management system across all product categories. With the new system, the 'complete intelligence' of the products can be incorporated into the building network for the first time: doors and windows can be controlled 'intelligently' together with other participants of the system. Data exchange between GEZE Cockpit and the integrated doors and windows is carried out via the IO 420 BACnet interface module.
Further networking optimization of the automated window systems that can be integrated into a building automation system can be achieved by installing the standard KNX protocol. In addition, the chain and spindle drives of the IQ windowdrive series can be integrated as direct bus participants in a KNX building system via the award-winning IQ box KNX interface module, for controlled, natural ventilation. This means that automated windows can also be 'intelligently' monitored and operated from a central location.
"Intelligent building automation systems can significantly reduce energy consumption and even bring down operational costs in the long run without sacrificing comfort." commented Charles Constantin, Managing Director of GEZE Middle East. "GEZE offers you building automation systems for all building types, sizes, and for every use. Thanks to GEZE's robust open communication standards and interfaces you can integrate a wide choice of different building control disciplines including centralized, intelligent energy management and highly efficient and innovative energy and cost saving functions." he concluded.
The Cockpit Control and related product categories developed and designed by GEZE was officially launched in the Middle East at the annual Window, Doors and Facades exhibition, held at the Dubai World Trade Centre in September.
