Racine, Wis. – July 18, 2018 – Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD), a leader in technology in the HVAC industry, showcased the revolutionary Building Management System (BMS) monitoring system at Cultivate’18 in Columbus, Ohio.
The Modine BMS monitoring system offers building owners unprecedented control over their heating units, all at the tip of their fingers through the customer’s BMS interface.
“Commercially available BMS thermostats are much more expensive than traditional thermostats,” said Jamie Tuinstra, product manager at Modine. “They allow the end user some control over their equipment over a central communication hub instead of physically interacting with the thermostat itself. However, common controls such as turning the unit on/off, setting a new limit through scheduling or seasonality provide very little information about the unit’s operation. Modine’s solution was to put the brains inside the unit instead of at the thermostat. This allows signals from the unit’s components to be factory wired so that information specific to the equipment is able to be communicated over BMS without any additional setup by the installer.”
By using a simple and inexpensive room sensor, Modine customers can now have functions of a BMS thermostat with the added benefit of equipment alarms and statuses that would not be available using a conventional BMS thermostat method. In addition, Modine’s board supports the energy saver function which destratisfies warm ceiling air temperatures before turning on the burners.
Features of the new BMS monitoring system include:
“The amount of control that greenhouse operators will have with this system is something we think has been missing from the industry,” Tuinstra said. “We encourage everyone at Cultivate to come by and check out the system demos and see first-hand the amount of data that is accessible and controllable. Building owners will have more control and information about their units to lower running costs being used and reduce any down time. The new BMS monitoring system even allows for multi-unit monitoring and integration, to ensure an even greenhouse climate.”
