central building control system

Building control technology (BMS) is functionally part of building automation and deals with the monitoring and economic control of technical building components. It is related to the infrastructure management ofdata centers, the DCIM, and is used in office buildings, administrative buildings and industrial buildings.

Building control technology facilitates the operation and reduces the maintenance of many different components, systems and buildings. It has a flexible approach and adapts to a wide variety of buildings and their requirements. It can be about reducing energy consumption for lighting, heating or air conditioning, as well as safety aspects or potential hazards.

The building control system is divided into three levels: the field level, where sensors record the states of the individual components, the automation level, where actuators and control elements regulate the energy supply, and the management level, where the administrator monitors, analyzes, documents and controls the set physical parameters. The building control system provides central control and monitoring of different building automation systems, even across buildings. Operation takes place centrally on the same user interface.

In terms of communication technology, the centralized building control system is connected to decentralized building automation systems, which are controlled and monitored centrally. The data of all systems are stored in a central database and processed by the central data processing system.
