Fujitsu General Australia has launched an advanced control system developed in partnership with Nube iO and tailored for the commercial and industrial building sectors.
“As we witness the increased demand for smart building technologies, we are proud to present anywAiR iO,” says Kyle Rafter, head of product ANZ, Fujitsu General Australia.
“This solution is our commitment to enhancing building automation and energy efficiency, giving building operators the tools they need to create more sustainable, comfortable environments.”
According to Fujitsu, the core of anywAiR iO is the Rubix Compute, a multilingual IoT gateway. This hub aggregates data and seamlessly connects to a diverse range of sensors, both wireless and wired. Additionally, the system integrates Rubix iO modules, Micro Edge, and Droplet Sensors.
“Diving deeper, anywAiR iO showcases proficiency in HVAC control and optimisation, adeptly handling everything from VRF systems, rooftop package units, and split systems to exhaust fans, valves, and car park exhausts,” says Fujitsu.
“Its state-of-the-art sensors not only detect anomalies but actively contribute to slashing energy consumption, proactively sending essential notifications to preempt potential inefficiencies or disruptions.
“The potential of the anywAiR iO system in the realm of IoT space utilisation cannot be understated. Leveraging non-intrusive monitoring methods, the solution can capture occupancy trends, door state alterations, and even assess levels in bins and water reservoirs. Armed with such insights, facility managers can now streamline maintenance cycles and strategise optimal operating periods.
“Additionally, the anywAiR iO dashboard provides a bird’s-eye view of the entire building management system. Without the need for any software installation or updates, users can access the dashboard from any browser, at any time, and from anywhere.”
anywAiR iO features include:
- IoT and wi-fi connectivity
- Rubix Compute Gateway that manages, aggregates, and delivers diverse building data
- Rubix iO Modules offering wireless communication for different building applications
- Micro Edge Sensor using LoRa technology for data capture across building equipment
- Utility monitoring offering real-time insights on utilities consumption
- Indoor air quality monitoring connecting to sensors
- LoRa-enabled monitors designed for low-cost and efficient setup
- Scalability to support expansion as a building’s needs evolve.
“Embracing the future means integrating intelligence into every brick and beam,” says Rafter. “With anywAiR iO, we’re not just building structures; we’re crafting intelligent ecosystems that adapt, learn, and grow with our ever-evolving world.”
