The company Daikin, a leader in climate control solutions, continues its high capacity for innovation in your area of automation and control systems. With the development of new and advanced centralized management systems so that the user can more easily manage, centralized and optimized HVAC facilities, and so enjoy maximum comfort with increased energy savings.
Among the new systems include the Daikin Intelligent Touch Manager for VRV units, the Online Controler, allowing control via smartphone, tablet or PC, KNX and Modbus gateways, and new wireless temperature sensors.
The Intelligent Touch Manager for VRV systems offers a new solution to monitor and manage up to 2,512 indoor units Daikin. Thanks to this system, which consists of a web server touchscreen series, it is possible to monitor and control all devices installed in a building, such as lights, boilers, meters, loggers and recovery, among others.
Notably, in an installation of VRV over 80% of the signals are Daikin units. For this reason, it is much easier to integrate the set of signals in the system and to achieve a simple and powerful BMS (Building Management System). In this sense, Daikin is able to achieve a better integration of all devices in the system, so that, with a single provider, facilitates their implementation, issue tracking and exploitation.
Remote monitoring and new walkways
Another innovation developed by Daikin is the new Online Controller which allows remote monitor and control the main functions of the indoor residential and small business units. The operation of the system is very simple and can be used from any location via a smartphone, laptop, or tablet PC. Among the possibilities are remote fault detection, supervision during periods of absence or event log.
On the other hand, emphasize the two gateways KNX: KLIC-DD, for Daikin units in the home, and KLIC-DI, Daikin equipment in the industrial area (Sky-Air and VRV). The function of these gateways in automated systems is to ensure that all devices “speak” the same language, so you can send and receive, more precisely, orders, data and information.
The new Daikin KNX gateways extend the possibilities of connectivity and integration. KNX is a standard communication language used in the control systems of homes and buildings, and is the only international protocol that meets the requirements of European standards EN 50090 (CENELEC) and EN 13321 (CEN), as well as international standard ISO/IEC 14543-3 (ISO and IEC).
With the new gateway installation and configuration are much simpler for the integrator. In addition, devices have focused on providing generic solutions such as for control blinds, lights, air conditioning, security, etc..
Specifically, Daikin-KNX gateway KLIC-DD monitors and controls some domestic units. Meanwhile, Daikin-KNX gateway KLIC-DI monitors and controls certain models of Sky Air.
Added to this is the possibility of communication via Modbus protocol, which supports domestic units, Sky Air, VRV, VAM/VKM, curtains DX and water as hidrokits units or chillers Small Inverter.
Wireless Sensor temperature
KNX gateways addition, Daikin introduces new wireless temperature probe K.RSS for Sky-Air systems and VRV. Powered by a temperature transmitter (RST) and a receiver connected to the indoor unit (RSR) that communicate wirelessly by radio frequency. It provides a precise measurement of the temperature, without the need for wiring work to introduce.
This wireless sensor monitors the temperature of the room and sends information to the indoor unit every 90 seconds or every time the temperature changes by 0.2 degree C or more. Thus, provides comprehensive control and ensures full thermal comfort in the room.
