Building Management Systems (BMS)

December 26th, 2022|

Building Management Systems (BMS), sometimes called a Building Automation System (BAS), is a computer-based system installed to control and monitor a building’s electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, energy, fire systems, and security systems. It consists of software and hardware. A BMS is crucial to managing demand for energy in a cost-effective way and essential to all new builds. It allows owners and landlords of buildings to reduce energy costs and provide optimum comfort for users, tenants and residents of the buildings. It allows remote management of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) so that maintenance staff do not have to spend time visiting each building or room to shut down, switch on or adjust temperature levels or air conditioning. The primary function of building management systems is most often to control the HVAC, heating, and ventilation systems, but there are other functions as well. The main components of a building management system and their basic functionalities are as follows: HVAC: maintain a specified air state with regard to temperature and humidity; control fans and dampers; control air handling units and fan coil units.

ATEX two-way radios and accessories are mandatory requirements to keep workers safe in certain environments. The ATEX approval process requires that electrical equipment such as two-way radios meets rigorous safety standards in hazardous areas, where a spark could react with gasses in the air to cause an explosion. ATEX-approved equipment is also known as being "intrinsically safe". In the case of two-way radios, "intrinsically safe" means the device is safe to use where the presence of a spark, heat or flame could otherwise create a safety hazard. Intrinsically safe, ATEX-approved radios are manufactured to very stringent requirements to reduce or eliminate the risk of generating even the tiniest spark. They must also limit the heat produced by the device. From the radio-casing to the batteries they use, everything is constructed with safety in mind. There are many situations where radios are critical to effective operations, yet standard two-way radios could make a hazardous environment even more dangerous. Emergency scenes attended by fire, ambulance and police services Oil rigs and refineries Gas mains Coal mines Chemical plants Engine rooms Factories Airports Intrinsically safe, ATEX handheld [...]

Smart devices like phones and tablets are the most common form of push-to-talk (PTT) device today. Users install push-to-talk apps on the devices, then use a hard (physical) button or soft (in-app) button to communicate. for key workers like dispatchers, the ideal push-to-talk device is the desktop computer. While PTT is used mostly by workers in the field, they often need to coordinate with workers at desks. Within a number of industries, the success of a company’s operations relies on workers being able to communicate effectively and quickly, between distant sites, with a number of different parties at any time. The traditional method of communication in such environments is the Push-to-talk radio station, also known as the ‘walkie-talkie’, which has its advantages over a traditional cellphone or landline because of the direct, instant communication using radio frequencies, which was free of charge to the users. There are however drawbacks of this old technology, including range, number of speakers, security of the network, and the burden of having to carry an additional device. However, now devices are ready to use third party PTT-applications over mobile [...]
