Energy management has always been an important issue for school administrators and operators. The way we use our educational buildings has changed over the past few years and will continue to evolve. Paired with the continued rise of energy costs, the change in occupancy and usage of educational facilities and classrooms means it is now more important than ever to implement intelligent energy saving strategies that respect indoor air quality and comfort from an economic, environmental and health standpoint.
Viconics room controllers have been specifically designed to bring simple control solutions to the educational K-12 market without the high cost associated with traditional building automation systems. These stand alone or communicating room controllers are application specific configurable thermostats built to suit most commonly used applications for offices, lecture halls, classrooms, dormitories, gymnasiums, and portable classrooms. They are simple to use and install. Configuration and commissioning do not require any special toolsets or custom software and can be done by electrical or maintenance staff. Stand-alone or programmable, they reduce energy costs while improving ROI with accelerated payback, often in less than 12 months.
The Viconics VT7000 and VT8000 series room controllers feature an integrated passive infrared motion sensor (PIR) that guarantees energy savings by setting back the temperature automatically to stand-by mode when no motion is detected in a classroom or dormitory. The result is increased energy savings with comfortable classrooms that provide an environment conducive to learning and allow staff and students to function to their full potential and efficiency.
Our room controllers can be easily integrated into any open protocol building automation or property management system utilizing BACnet MSTP, BACnet IP. Our wireless protocols include WiFi to BACnet IP and ZigBee to BACnet IP. This provides significant flexibility when designing your solution. With room controller to BAS/PMS integration you can improve energy savings in through chiller and boiler plant optimization.
