Henry Lawson, Senior Market Research Analyst, BSRIA World Market Intelligence, looks at the growth of smart connected HVAC systems.
Put yourself in the shoes of someone who is responsible for a chain of offices or other buildings. These could be hotels or restaurants; shops, banks, offices or petrol stations to name just some possibilities. A key part of your job will be keeping these buildings comfortable for staff and customers alike, while also keeping costs down. This means not just energy costs, with all the associated environmental issues, but also the costs of maintenance and repair.
A specialist hospital in Northumbria is using the Daikin on Site remote monitoring system to help makes sure its operating theatres and wards are available to care for seriously ill and injured patients across the region.
DoS has been developed by the Daikin Applied (UK) (DAPUK) applied chiller engineering design team, working closely with Daikin Applied Service (DAPS UK) to provide a browser-based real-time view of a site’s chiller and AHU operation.

There’s been much buzz around the “Internet of Things,” or IoT. However, recently a subcategory, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has been getting attention. The IIoT is the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in manufacturing. It brings together key technologies like machine learning, big data, sensors and machine-to-machine (M2M) computing in an orchestrated fashion within manufacturing operations.
There are many benefits that the IIoT promises to deliver, like shorter production cycles, more timely responses to supplier orders, the ability to predict consumer shifts and optimise supply chains to meet new demands, and the ability to quickly retool for design changes. However, the IIoT also can transform companies in other ways, thereby helping drive economic growth and competitiveness.
Now the design of the building has been decided, as per the last column (November 2015 issue), and the loads for each room have been calculated we are able to start to put a quote together.
Our theoretical two storey building, which we introduced in the first column, has a floor area of 160m2 per floor with open plan and cellular offices. Different tenants occupy each floor.
