Sauter room controller integrates blinds, lighting and ventilation

Sauter’s ecos504 room controller integrates the automatic control of lighting and sunshades into room-climate regulation. In modern buildings in particular, energy consumption is reduced considerably and comfort for occupants improved.

In modern buildings, most of the energy is used for cooling. To reduce consumption, sunshading must be automated. Further significant energy savings are made possible by occupancy-dependent control of lighting. Thirdly, demand-controlled room ventilation with CO2 sensors can make a substantial contribution to energy efficiency.

The ecos504 integrates sunshade, lighting and room-climate regulation and also seamlessly integrates into the building-management system and primary-energy preparation via BACnet/IP communication.

The ecos504 is a modular room automation station with which remote ecoLink I/O modules can be combined as required, maximising flexibility when connecting field devices. The controller supports up to eight rooms or flexible room segments.

The freely programmable room controller is based on the B-BC BACnet profile with local historic data, schedules, calendars or COV fulfils the main prerequisites for interoperability. Comprehensive libraries for room-automation functions as per VDI 3813 are available for the engineering.

The direct connection of KNX field devices to the ecos 504 significantly expands the selection of room operating units, actuators and sensors that can be used.
