Daikin has introduced air handling units (AHU) with product integrated controls (AHU-PIC), which the company describes as “an industry-leading IoT-ready air-handling unit offering ultimate control straight out of the box”.
“Delivering more efficient, technologically advanced and high-performing buildings is becoming an increasingly important consideration in the construction industry,” Daikin says. “Building owners, builders and consultants are placing a greater focus on specifying products that contribute to their smart building credentials while minimising risks around systems integration.
“Now, AHU-PIC takes air handling units to a whole new level, delivering ultimate control into the hands of building owners thanks to a configurable integrated control system that provides deeper insight into building performance, with advanced systems integration and connectivity requiring fewer people and processes.
“AHU-PIC arrives onsite with controls and sensors factory-fitted, pre-programmed and tested, ready for immediate installation. The integrated control is easily connected to existing BMS, BACnet or ICN platforms, and is configurable for internet connectivity without the need for a BMS contractor onsite. With less trades onsite for installation and connection, the WH&S risk is minimised and construction timelines are accelerated.”
