TAC I/A Series is a building management system that allows you to have a full building access, monitoring and control from anywhere in the globe. There are myriads of benefits of having a building management system. This system is deemed by experts as a tool for any kind of business. It will be able to provide a comfortable working facility for the occupants of the building. This will then translate to improved productivity and will contribute significantly in saving energy costs and reducing carbon footprint when used correctly. However, most of the time, the full capabilities of the building management system are not fully utilized and the potential benefits that the system can provide are lost.
In order to fully take advantage of the potential of the TAC I/A Series system, the building manager should be able to link together the different systems that make use of energy within the building. In the past, users of the BMS have put off this task because there were concerns arising like the potential complexity of the building systems and the potential increase of initial cost for the system. Today, these issues have now become much easier to overcome with the advent of an integrated building management system. The key in order to achieve these benefits is the interaction that comes between the devices. A common example to this is the control in a meeting room. When the room is not occupied, it will be appropriate to reduce the heating temperature set points in the room and increase those for the cooling and then turn the lights off automatically. This can all be carried out through a signal coming from occupancy or a CO2 sensor to both the temperature and lighting control systems.
In most cases, this does not typically happen. The two systems mentioned are not integrated, hence, energy-saving potential will be lost. This is a shame since this type of control which is demand-based is relatively very easy to implement and likewise the payback period for additional work can be classified as fairly short.
The ventilation systems of the TAC I/A Series can be readily controlled based on the same information on demand. Again this can be easily linked with the overall system in order for the fans which are controlled with a variable speed will be turned down in order to save energy and thus help prolong the life of the plant facilities. The fact that you can do everything automatically increases the potential of your building to save energy since the system is not dependent on the users to remember to shut down the systems.
The BMS head can use a single point of information for the entire building if the all of the services of the building are linked to it. This will mean that information coming from multiple systems can be easily displayed on a single page in order to give a clear picture on how the entire building functions. You can also integrate data coming from meters into the BMS and allow it to become both a control and monitoring system. This will make analysis on the various parts of the building even more straightforward.
