Daikin Applied (UK) has launched Daikin on Site, a new remote monitoring system for its AHU and chiller ranges.
Daikin on Site has been developed by the 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 operation.
“We live in a technological advancing world with ever-increasing demands and Daikin on Site will help us to exceed current client expectations taking chiller servicing to new heights”.
In-field service engineers have worked with onsite facilities management teams to ensure that the design and delivery matches all client requirements and that the cloud-based solution is both easy to set up and has the flexibility required.
All new DAPUK chillers now have the Daikin on Site software embedded into the unit controller, which is ready to be enabled by the service team. The software also allows integration of chiller plant room systems on the new cloud-based platform.
The data transfer itself is fully secure via event based outbound communication and connections that are encrypted over HTTPS to prevent wiretapping or man in the middle attacks without the need for a VPN connection..
Monitoring, operation and improvements
Daikin on Site allows remote monitoring and operation of the chiller equipment, both in real time and based on historical trends. This can include energy usage via an energy meter but also includes all operating parameters of the compressor, fans, refrigeration circuits and thermal load. This information allows Daikin Applied Service to build up an operational view of the equipment, which leads to tailored maintenance to customer specific needs and over time builds up a real picture of the unit’s operation, including load profile and energy use.
