What is a Building Energy Management System?
A building energy management system (BEM) is a sophisticated method to monitor and control a building’s energy needs. Next to energy management, the digital system (or pneumatic system) can control and monitor a wide range of other aspects of any commercial building or residential structure.
Some examples of these functions include:
- Air quality
Pneumatic & Digital Control Systems
Pneumatic control systems use compressed air as a method of control for heating and cooling systems. The compressed air is carried via copper and plastic tubes from a controller to a control device, like a damper or valve actuator. The control method typically relies on sensors and thermostats that bleed or retain the line pressure from the sensor to the control device and the actuator.
The sensor responds to changes in temperature, humidity, and static pressure to provide feedback in a control loop to open or close the actuator to meet the control set point. Building thermostats with a pneumatic control system have one or more lines of air connected to it from the main source of compressed air and to some type of final device such as a valve.
While you can replace a pneumatic system with a digital control system, there are pneumatic-to-digital strategies available. In addition to installation, maintenance and repair of comfort cooling systems for commercial buildings and residential homes alike, Air-Tro regularly provides its customers with analog, digital, and pneumatic controls expertise.
