Carel's full c.pCO range of controllers has received BACnet B-BC certification, covering equipment and control devices for BMS systems made by different manufacturers.
Francesco Pesce, Programmable Controllers Platform Manager, said: "In recent years we have seen increasingly rapid progress towards network-connected high-efficiency systems to improve management and save energy. The BACnet protocol has been supported for many years on our optional cards and monitoring solutions, ensuring integration of Carel's products into the building's systems.
"Now we have decided to make further investments so as to integrate our controllers with BACnet as standard, making it the main connectivity reference for our high-efficiency solutions. Having the entire c.pCO range of programmable controllers B-BC certified is an important achievement. This certification means we can guarantee our customers the highest reliability in efficient, high-performance and technologically-advanced connected systems.”
“We work very closely with BACnet International, whose activities are fundamental in the areas of building automation and integration. Indeed, starting this year we have decided to become a Gold Member, further underlining Carel's commitment to a sector we have been leaders in for more than 40years.''
Engineers from the University of Sheffield have co-designed a unique system to keep football fans and players cool at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Although the competition has been moved from the summer to November and December, the average temperature during this time ranges between 25 - 29℃.
Visitors to the Ziehl-Abegg stand at ISH in Frankfurt had a whale of a time as the fan and motor manufacturing specialist shared the inspiration for a new development.
The main focus of interest was the ZAbluefin fan for central air conditioning control units and industrial ventilation, which increases efficiency by up to 15%.
Ziehl-Abegg’s development engineers studied the physical structure and characteristics of the humpback whale in order to transfer elements to the new fan. And the company’s stand reflected that input with a small cinema devoted to whale-watching, an opening speech from whale researcher Dr Karsten Brensing and giveaways in the form of large inflatable whales!
The challenges facing the refrigeration and air conditioning industry dominated proceedings at the Association of European Component Manufacturers annual meeting in Brussels.
Alongside lectures from association experts, ASERCOM used the occasion of its 25th anniversary to hold its first open forum on topics including EU regulations, energy efficiency and further education.
