BDT Introduces Black Diamond Controls – Building Management System from Mitsubishi Electric.
A Building Management System provides a single centralised point of control and monitoring for multiple building systems:
With the ability to customise the graphical user interface to suit the client’s requirements, BDT can deliver a detailed yet user friendly experience for all users. Black Diamond Controls makes monitoring a building or campus remarkably simple, reducing human error and the time it takes to navigate the system.
The BMS can be accessed at any time from any location if configured appropriately, with the user interface accessible via any web browser. The ability to configure secure remote system access provides a simple solution for initial service support by offsite service technicians. User access and control levels can be independently configured to restrict control and monitoring of systems depending on access level.
The displayed history logging, reports and analysis reveal in real time how the building’s systems are reacting to user behaviour, building conditions and ambient conditions. This offers users valuable oversight of system performance and quickly alerts users to any potential system faults.
The Black Diamond Controls DC-8000 allows advanced proprietary integration with Mitsubishi Electric City Multi units by providing access to detailed system parameters:
BDT also offers a range of BACnet Controllers to allow integration of low level control points in to the Building Management System in applications where third party devices are utilised. These applications may include plant items such as air handling units, boiler systems and pump control.
Working with a single company for system design, product supply, service and technical support removes typical frustrations associated with integrating multiple building systems. BDT can now offer a Building Management System that natively integrates our diverse product range alongside third party devices. Ventilation products, VRF, chilled water, Ecodan, energy monitoring and more can now be integrated into a single unified platform to provide monitoring and control. With this level of system integration the scope for energy performance optimisation can be increased.
BDT’s Head Office in Wellington provided an ideal case study site to implement a functional Building Management System and demonstrate integration capabilities with numerous product groups. The BMS demonstrates the high level integration features of the Black Diamond Controls DC-8000 with the City Multi Product Range in the Wellington showroom. From it we can see the detailed service information available and demonstrate customisable functionality such as Zone After-Hours Control from a single City Multi Room Controller or from an Integrated Occupancy Sensor.Read more here
