Heating & Cooling
Temperature Monitoring and Control is achieved by a combination of heating and cooling using the PID algorithm.
Internal air temperature of separate areas of a building can be controlled by mechanisms such as:
- Cooling fans
- Fan heaters
- Radiation heaters
- Prioritised combination of the above mechanisms for staged heating and cooling
These mechanisms are brought into action automatically based on chosen priority as and when needed.
Equally a simple mechanism can be used to independently control the temperature of an individual room or any enclosure using Three Term control to minimise costs.
All activities are logged by automatically grouping sensors and actuators involved in control – this helps in fault diagnostics and cause-and-effect analysis; the facility managers and engineers do not need to select sensors and devices separately for logging!
GCS control panel showing the current state of some room management programs and associated IO points. Logging of a group of IO points can be enabled with the clicking of a button. In this example, all IO points used to control the environment of a room are automatically selected for logging enabling easy cause and effect analysis and diagnostic.
