Securing Buildings News

MILWAUKEE – Johnson Controls, Inc., the global leader in facility management and control, has expanded the open architecture of its Metasys® building management system with a family of BACnet® compatible field controllers and embedded wireless technology. The company introduced the expanded Metasys system at the 2006 AHR Expo in Chicago.

The new advanced technology features enhance the system’s ability to manage lifecycle costs, improve facility performance, increase flexibility and provide quicker access to more building information.

The Metasys system’s BACnet field controllers incorporate sophisticated algorithms that provide continuous adaptive control so HVAC equipment “self-tunes” in response to seasonal changes and system dynamics, reducing commissioning time. Eliminating the need for manual intervention ensures that the equipment functions at optimum efficiency, which lowers the cost of operation as well as maintenance and repair expenses.

In addition, the Metasys system now provides a comprehensive wireless building controls solution that allows wireless capabilities to be incorporated either throughout the entire system or in just one part, from room sensing to field controllers to network automation to user interfaces to distributed infrastructures. The wide range of wireless capabilities gives facility operators and owners mobility, flexibility and cost-effective options for managing their facility and economically expanding their system into spaces that were previously difficult or too costly to wire for conventional controls.

The Metasys systems’ new BACnet capabilities support seamless communication with YORK mechanical equipment, including chillers and air handling units. All YORK rooftop units and chillers are available with BACnet compatible controllers. Last month, Johnson Controls completed its acquisition of YORK International, the largest independent supplier of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) equipment and services.
