Wago brings intelligence to room automation

Wago’s FlexRoom intelligent room-automation system provides flexible automation of lighting, window blinds, and room control — including heating and cooling. It can be used to quickly and easily realise energy-efficient and standard-compliant building automation in nearly all office and administrative buildings. Its ease of use means that configuration and reconfiguration can be carried out in-house, saving time and reducing costs.

The system uses standard predefined hardware and pre-built software that simultaneously provide sufficient flexibility for building automation based on the spatial axes of a building.

A distribution box contains all the required functions for shading, lighting control and single-room control for up to 24 axes. Multiple distribution boxes can be networked to provide full building coverage. All required controller components are already integrated in the decentralised FlexRoom distribution box and ready for use.

FlexRoom is oriented according to room segments — part of a room with a window. Each room segment includes functions for controlling lighting, Sun protection and temperature regulation.

Walls can be intuitively and quickly moved with a few mouse clocks, rooms can be re-arranged, and lighting and shading groups can be configured.

For example, to operate all functions in a typical building, four FlexRoom office distribution box variants could be used, with each covering, say, 16 room segments.

In addition, a FlexRoom weather distribution box could be installed on the roof to provide weather data to the office distribution boxes.

Individual office distribution boxes exchange data via Modbus/TCP, and communication at the management level can be carried out using BACnet/IP.
