Building Automation

Our Building Automation Channel addresses all typical electrical networks existing in commercial and institutional buildings from the input service supply to the more complex protection and control systems required in order to achieve maximum performance.Building automation refers to the use of technology to automate and manage different components in a building, including lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), security, etc. The primary goal of building automation is to provide centralized control of the building, enabling building managers to optimize energy consumption, improve occupant comfort, and reduce operating costs.Building automation is made possible through the use of building automation controls. A BAS is a computer-based control function that manages and monitors a building's mechanical and electricalcomponents. It consists of several components, including the central processor, sensors, actuators, and communication systems. The central processor is responsible for controlling and monitoring the building's systems, while the sensors are used to monitor the building's environment. The actuators are used to control the building's systems, and the communication systems enable the BAS to communicate with other systems, such as the internet and other building automation systems.Building automation also rely on building controls to manage and monitor building components. These controls can be divided into two categories: HVAC controls and direct digital control (DDC). HVAC controls manage heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, while DDC controls manage lighting, security, and other building functions. Building controls are essential to the effective management and control of a building and are an integral part of building automation.
