The Future of Smart Buildings

From |

For many years, building management systems (BMS) have been installed to control and monitor a portion of the building services. These systems, which tend to be expensive, are mostly used in large buildings, especially in the commercial and industrial sectors.

While offering much functionality, they have limitations in their use such as:

  1. Complex installation and configuration processes
  2. Systems are often closed and with limited evolutivity (due to their complexity)
  3. Systems are designed for operators only and not originally designed to provide services to building occupants

Smart buildings offer diversities and allow us to foresee an ultra-connected future; the challenge is to allow integration and interaction with the latest proposed solutions, in order to jointly offer a new user experience.

Phoenix Contact’s answer to the digitalization of building technology

Our IoT-based framework enables the integration of standard communication paths as well as new IP-based protocols. Thanks to open interfaces, existing systems can simply be integrated in the building management system.

The depth of the data ensures that your building projects have an intelligent and needs-based structure that is easy to expand. This applies to heating/ventilation/air conditioning, room and media systems, as well as the security concepts.

Phoenix Contact offers a broad product portfolio, ranging from easy installation to intelligent building automation. From cabling through to surge protection and the intelligent use of data in the building management system, we have intelligent products and solutions for your multi-site premises.

Controller for building infrastructure

The IoT-based ILC 2050 BI controller enables easy connection to standard as well as IP-based field devices. The data points of the technical building equipment captured and standardized at field level are defined once, and are then available to the entire system.

EMpro energy measuring devices

Our range of products for energy and performance measurements can be used to convert, record, measure, and monitor the energy parameters of your technical building equipment. The recorded consumption values provide a basis to increase the energy efficiency of your building.

Measurement and control technology

Isolate, convert, and filter signals, and monitor and control processes in the building: our measurement and control technology components cover all the tasks required for interference-free signal transmission from sensor level to control level.

Industrial communication technology

Regardless of which medium is used for the communication or that needs to be installed, we offer you the relevant solution with copper, fibre optic and wireless products.

STEP POWER power supplies for installation distributors

Use our power supplies and UPS to guarantee the highest availability of your processes. STEP POWER power supplies have been specifically developed for the building automation. They fit into installation distributors as well as flat control panels, and offer maximum energy efficiency.

Surge protection

From the incoming supply to the end device, from the data cable to the photovoltaic system – protect your devices and installations with surge protection from Phoenix Contact.
