Building Automation Systems


Bina Otomasyon ve Yönetimi Sistemleri

Building Automation and Management Systems include the central control, monitoring and reporting of the electro-mechanical systems such as heating, cooling, ventilation systems, generators, air pressure tank, VRV-VRF systems, fan coils, VAV's, lighting, parking control systems, CO exhaust gas monitoring and controlling depending on the type of facility. In addition, the Building Automation and Management System which is generally integrated with other security systems such as CCTV (Close Circuit TV), access control, fire detection systems provides control of the building from a single center with minimal staff and maximum efficiency.

HVAC - Mechanical Automation Systems:

The main target is saving in operating costs and ensure full control by using the most effective way for resource management and reporting depending on the sector of enterprises, comfort-control requirements, electro-mechanical systems and also by minimizing the human factor in mechanical system controls such as heating, cooling, ventilation, water supply etc..

Lighting Automation Systems:

The main target is to maximize the lighting energy efficiency of the indoor, outdoor and architectural lighting systems, by controlling the systems with time, occupancy, ambient and outdoor light parameters and pre-defined scenarios.  Central monitoring, controlling, reporting and energy saving are the main focuses.

Parking Security and Automation Systems:

These systems cover the monitoring exhaust gas concentration in parking lots; the activation of the audio-visual warning units and the operation of the exhaust fans if the pre-set threshold level is exceeded.

High-Level Integration:

Through the integration between the Building Automation and Management System(BMS) and all the other electronic systems in a building such as fire detection, access control, CCTV,  employee time attendance etc., maximum efficiency and control increase exponentially across the enterprise  and also the communication and coordination between different systems can be done from a single center.

Why do we use building automation systems?

  • Comfort: To provide the desired comfort conditions in the controlled area like ambient temperature, humidity, light intensity, air quality, water temperature etc..
  • Energy Saving: The automatic adjustment of water-air temperature, light intensity, time schedules of on-off controlled systems; the prevention of unnecessary heating,cooling, lighting to minimize the costs; calculation of energy consumption.
  • Routine Process Controls: Daily, weekly, hourly program arrangement of on-off devices; ensuring equal wear-times by sequential execution of the device, replacement of faulty equipment with backup.
  • Preventive Maintenance and System Continuity: Following the lifetimes and approximate maintenance time of the electromechanical systems, keeping minimum spare part stocks, issuing work orders, the detection of frequently failed systems
  • Eliminating the human based faults and reducing costs of labor: Decrease of the human based errors, unnecessary energy consumption and the amount of labor; efficient use of resources

Which Systems Are We Controlling?

  • Air Handling Units (AHU),
  • Exhaust, supply, pressurization fans,
  • Pumps
  • Boilers and heating systems,
  • Chillers and cooling systems,
  • Thermal Converters (heating, domestic hot water, etc. ..)
  • Internal and external lighting
  • Monitoring of electricity and heat energy (the energy analyzers, current-voltage-power monitoring, power switching)
  • Mechanical equipment of room (fan coils, VRV, VAV, air conditioning ..)
  • Water storage and supply systems, elevators, generators, compressors, water treatment, packaging equipment
  • Interior and exterior lighting

We are minimizing brand dependence by using open-platform software and hardware

All automation platforms cannot provide the integration and compatible operation between the Building Automation System and the other different systems or packaging equipment that exist or will be added later depending on the needs of the potential expansions. Establishing a Building Automation System that support the open platform infrastructures such as BACnet, Modbus, LON, M-Bus provides the possibility to minimize the brand dependence for the customer.

We provide user training and technical support services for the continuity of the system.

  • The key factors which are necessary to establish a system are to continue the vitality of the system without being dependent on the companies or persons, to supply correct products, documentation and spare parts, to provide backward compatibility, global product and technical service supports.
  • By establishing partnerships with the world's leading manufacturers, we can supply the proper systems for you, keep your system up to date, and provide after-sales support within the systems lifetime.

The Scope of the Building Automation System and the Applications

The determining factors of the Building Automation System design are the electromechanical infrastructure of the building, the intended use of the building, the number of technical and business personnel and their education and experience level, the possibility of expansions, savings and the needs of system management. The industrial facilities, residential buildings, hotels, shopping centers, office buildings, hospitals and educational institutions have both common and different requirements for the automation and integration.

Hotels:

  • Common control of interior-exterior lighting.
  • Reporting of alarms, run time, user intervention etc.
  • Controlling room occupation and check-in status to arrange the room heating, lighting and energy consumption.
  • Controlling equipment such as remote light (swimming pool, garden etc. ), pumps, chillers, cold storage rooms, water tanks, etc. from a single center.

Shopping or Business Centers:

  • Common control of heating, cooling, ventilation, water supply systems.
  • Common control of interior-exterior lighting.

The Design of the Building Automation Project and Implementation Processes

When you request a Building Automation System project from EEC, the following steps are applied to implement the most appropriate system for you:

  1. The existing electro-mechanical system is examined and then the automation scope will be determined by taking into consideration your requests.
  2. The necessity and the level of integration between Building Automation System and the other systems (such as CCTV, fire alarm, card access, elevators, industrial automation, etc.) is determined.
  3. The automation scenarios are discussed and created according to the design of your project company.
  4. The system is presented with options including material and installation costs by taking into needs of future expansions.
  5. When the final system design is completed, at first the implementation projects are prepared; then the engineering, programming, graphic design, installation and programming works are completed and after your technical personnel are trained at the field, finally the system is delivered.
  6. The initial stage of the operation of the system is supervised by our engineers to complete the insufficiency of the system operators and perform small programming settings if it is necessary.
  7. After the complete system handover, our technical service team is ready for your maintenance and service needs.
