Intelligent Building Automation Systems

Building Automation Training

THIS 2-DAY INTRODUCTION TO INTELLIGENT BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS (BAS) AND Internet of Things (IoT) TRAINING COURSE IS DESIGNED TO ASSIST ORGANIZATIONS TO IDENTIFY THE MANY SAVINGS TO BE GAINED FROM PROPER SYSTEM INTEGRATED DESIGN, INSTALLATION, TESTING AND REAL TIME MONITORING AND MAINTENANCE.

Much of today's infrastructure such as hospitals, data centers, industrial facilities and commercial and multi residential buildings have antiquated building automation systems that don’t save as much money in energy and operations as is possible and don’t communicate with each other to get the benefits of real time monitoring and information exchange.

Intelligent building automation systems have improved capabilities to manage energy use, provide better comfort and controlled lighting as well as security and emergency response capabilities. IBAS can be used for many different applications some of which include energy management, demand response, capabilities, renewable energy and energy storage integration, security, fire and safety applications. The purpose of this course is to learn the rapid technology advances in intelligent building automation systems and how they may be applied to suit various types of custom applications that can improve comfort, productivity, education and contribute to economic and environmental objectives.

The focus of this course is on:

  • Building Automation Architecture
  • Economics of BAS
  • BAS Integration
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Hardware Innovations
  • Software Innovations

 

What you will learn:

This course will cover many practical examples and will be interactive for students to gain a broad overall understanding of intelligent building automation systems.

  • Identify and describe the major components in a BAS: ATC, Lighting, Security, Fire and Safety, Surveillance
  • Identify and describe the basic mechanical components and controls in an HVAC control system
