Advertorial


uPanasonic’s Hybrid VRF is the complete heang and cooling soluon for commercial buildings.


Adversing: 01622 699116


uIntelligent room controllers can oer access to a detailed breakdown of the system’s energy consumpon.


Thanks to advances in internet connecvity, the capabilies of smart devices are increasing at a rapid rate, with significant savings and energy eciencies being seen in heang, cooling and hot water controls in the hospitality sector. Neil Bilton, Head of Key Accounts, Panasonic Heang & Cooling explains.


Panasonic’s latest smart controls oer increased eciency and savings for the hospitality sector


Increased accessibility to such systems can help hoteliers reduce costs and energy consumption by monitoring the operation of each unit.

The room controller has a unique function of three set points (unlet, let but unoccupied or let and occupied), therefore improving overall system energy efficiency and indicating maintenance issues, highlighting potential failures and enabling remote preventative maintenance.


Sensor technology


Of course, this performance can be enhanced by incorporating more data from other situations. For example, wireless sensors are available to detect the presence or absence of occupants, and the opening and closing of doors and windows within guest rooms to achieve the most efficient energy management and savings.


The Panasonic VRF Smart Controller is


pecification of efficient heating and cooling solutions for hotels will deliver energy savings, however, the latest smart controls can


enhance the ROI.


one such solution where the manufacturer teamed up with Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™, creating a Building Energy Management System (BEMS) that optimises energy efficiency to offer high-quality occupancy control and automatic IAQ (Indoor Air Quality). By combining ZigBee wireless sensors to aid in providing greater energy savings and comfort as well as simple installation, operation and running costs.


The easy-to-use interface is fully customisable with set point boundaries and simple


pre-programmable settings including background colour options, custom messaging and displays that can be tailored to match any interior design scheme.


The colour touch screens can be configured with a choice of seven languages upon guest check-in, presenting a familiar visual control for all users, making them easy to navigate without requiring additional training.


By combining the power of building management with cutting-edge VRF technology, end users are further able to reduce capital and operating expenditures and reach new levels of sustainability.


Smart controls integrated with domestic and commercial heating systems can offer end users a more comprehensive, flexible heating and hot water solution that meets their exact requirements.


Intelligent room controllers can offer access to a detailed breakdown of the system’s energy consumption on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis. This can help hoteliers compare space utilisation and adjust the system to turn off during quiet periods, so that energy is not wasted heating or cooling rooms when unoccupied.


The future


uHoteliers can adjust the system to turn o during quiet periods, so that energy is not wasted heang or cooling empty rooms.


12 BUILDING SERVICES & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER APRIL 2018


Throughout 2018 and beyond, the industry is set to see new services added to this type of intelligent control system making them even more attractive to end users. The ultimate aim is to provide end users with an environmentally friendly, comfortable, efficient and intuitive heating and cooling solution. Breakthrough innovations and partnerships such as Panasonic and Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™, are examples of the steps being taken towards reaching this aim. For more information, please visit:
