Automation

Building automation systems are centralized, interlinked, networks of hardware and software, which monitor and control the environment in commercial facilities. While managing various building systems, the automation system ensures the operational performance of the facility as well as the comfort and safety of building occupants.

Typically, such control systems are installed in new buildings or as part of a renovation where they replace an outdated control system. MTech building automation begins with control of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. For instance, the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is almost always controlled, including control of its various pieces of equipment such as:

  • Chillers
  • Boilers
  • Air Handling Units
  • Roof-top HVAC Units
  • Box Cars
  • Fan Coil Units
  • Heat pump Units
  • Variable Air Volume, VAV
  • Mechanical
