M Line – M.E.A.C.
Multi-Equipment Application Controllers
M Line controllers are ideal for multi-equipment applications in commercial environments. These robust standalone controllers utilize native BACnet communications over a high-speed ARCNET 156 kbps network to ensure superior performance.
The BTU07 is a full featured and low cost BTU meter with Modbus over RS485 capability developed specifically for sub metering applications. The DFSR737A is unique among BTU meters by having the BTU calculator separate from the flow sensor, which allows the flow meter to be installed where it is needed, but with the BTU calculator and display installed anywhere it is convenient for tenant reading. The BTU07 comes as a set together with the flow and temperature sensors.
Ever since the first commercial thermal imaging camera was
sold in 1965 for high voltage power line inspections, by what
would later become FLIR Systems, the use of thermal imaging
cameras for industrial applications has been an important market
segment for FLIR.
Since then thermal imaging technology has evolved. Thermal
imaging cameras have become compact systems that look just
like a digital video camera or digital photo camera. They are easy
to use and generate crisp real-time high-resolution images.
Thermal imaging technology has become one of the most
valuable diagnostic tools for industrial applications. By detecting
anomalies that are usually invisible to the naked eye, thermal
imaging allows corrective action to be taken before costly
system failures occur.

Powerful Multi-Equipment Controllers
ME 812U Line – Powerful Multi-Equipment Controllers
The ME812U controllers have the speed, power, memory, and I/O flexibility to handle the most demanding control applications in the industry. Capable of controlling multiple pieces of equipment simultaneously, this robust BACnet controller can support complex control strategies with plenty of memory for trends, and is capable of third party integration using other communication protocols.
High Speed Ethernet Router
The LGR is an extremely powerful, high-speed device router that can connect hundreds of control modules to a BACnet/IP backbone. Support for BACnet/IP, BACnet over Ethernet, ARCNET 156kbps, MS/TP, and BACnet PTP communications are standard. Optional protocol translator packages and a wide range of communication ports allow the LGR to also serve as a gateway to a wide range of open and proprietary networks. Fully programmable, the LGR can also execute complex control strategies for high level system integration.
Introduction To Building Management Systems
A BMS is most common in a large building. Its core function is to manage the environment within the building and may control temperature, carbon dioxide levels and humidity within a building. As a core function in most BMS systems, it controls heating and cooling, manages the systems that distribute this air throughout the building (for example by operating fans or opening/closing dampers), and then locally controls the mixture of heating and cooling to achieve the desired room temperature. A secondary function sometimes is to monitor the level of human-generated CO2, mixing in outside air with waste air to increase the amount of oxygen while also minimising heat/cooling losses.
Systems linked to a BMS typically represent 40% of a building\\\’s energy usage; if lighting is included, this number approaches 70%. BMS systems are a critical component to managing energy demand. Improperly configured BMS systems are believed to account for 20% of building energy usage, or approximately 8% of total energy usage in the United States.
As well as controlling the building\\\’s internal environment, BMS systems are sometimes linked to access control (turnstiles and access doors controlling who is allowed access and egress to the building) or other security systems such as closed-circuit television (CCTV) and motion detectors. Fire alarm systems and elevators are also sometimes linked to a BMS, for example, if a fire is detected then the system could shut off dampers in the ventilation system to stop smoke spreading and send all the elevators to the ground floor and park them to prevent people from using them in the event of a fire.
Functions of Building Management Systems
The three basic functions of a central, computer-controlled BMS are:
the building’s facilities, mechanical, and electrical equipment for comfort, safety, and efficiency.
A BMS normally comprises of:
• Power systems
• Illumination system
• Electric power control system
• Heating,Ventilation and Air-conditioning HVAC System
• Security and observation system
• Magnetic card and access system
• Fire alarm system
• Lifts, elevators etc.
• Plumbing system
• Burglar alarms, CCTV
• Trace Heating
• Other engineering systems
• Home Automation System
• Fire alarm and Safety system
Benefits of BMS
• Good control of internal comfort conditions
• Possibility of individual room control
• Increased staff productivity
• Effective monitoring and targeting of energy consumption
• Improved plant reliability and life
• Effective response to HVAC-related complaints
• Save time and money during the maintenance
• Higher rental value
• Flexibility on change of building use
• Individual tenant billing for services facilities manager
• Central or remote control and monitoring of building
• Increased level of comfort and time saving
• Remote Monitoring of the plants (such as AHU\\\’s, Fire pumps, plumbing pumps, Electrical supply, STP, WTP etc.)
• Ease of information availability problem
• Computerized maintenance scheduling
• Effective use of maintenance staff
• Early detection of problems
