Energy Efficient Smart Building Management

The big players in BAS are using Ethernet Direct switches in their application.  Building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting & other systems through a building management system. The objectives of building automation are improved occupant comfort, efficient operation of building systems, and reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, and improved life cycle of utilities. We call it “Smart building.”

Areas of application:

  • Smart building or Smart home integration
  • Smart building energy systems management
  • Security and access control management system
  • Monitoring and control of several sub-systems within the building
  • Building surveillance system
  • Enterprise systems integration

Requirements for the application:

  • An IP network supporting flexible networks and redundant topologies
  • Cost-effective Industrial Gigabit switch offering fast and reliable transmission of important data readings
  • High port density industrial switches for building backbone with easy to operate management features
  • Industrial switches with security features to prevent network from intruders & hacking
  • Zero downtime network using Direct-Ring, Direct-Chain & Join-Ring redundancy technology
  • Self-recovery network in less than 10 milliseconds even with complex network of 250 switches in a ring topology
  • Future-proof and scalable Gigabit network solution to facilitate future network expansion
