Distech Controls‘ EC-Net building management system (BMS) is a comprehensive Web-based platform powered by the Niagara Framework®. The open structure of EC-Net building management system (BMS) creates a common development and management environment for the integration of BACnet®, LONWORKS®, Modbus™, and other standards. More than a building management system, EC-Net system provides all the tools you need to gain intelligence into your buildings’ performance and arm you with the ability to rapidly react to any situation that may adversely affect energy costs, business performance, and ultimately, your bottom line.
Dan Flaherty, Distech’s Vice President, Sales & Energy Services, takes the ControlTrends Community on a tour of Acuity Brands’ Disney-like technology center, a new mecca for young engineering talent. Join in as Dan shows us some of the really cool ways lighting technology has significantly enhanced the user experience within the Hospital, K-12, and Retail spaces. With the acquisition of Distech and DGLogik, Acuity has re-engineered the way lighting and sensors are deployed and how lighting sensor data and the Distech Eclypse Building Automation Systems are driving the next-gen smarter buildings. Gone are the days of the 72 degree thermostat… for sure. For more insight on how Acutiy is changing the concept of lighting, be sure to check out my interview with Ryan Sen, Distech’s Director of Sales Support.
I had a chance to go see Distech’s Ryan Sen at Acuity Brands headquarters in Conyers, Georgia. Ryan gave me a very cool demo of how Distech is using their BAS system, along with DGLogik and Acuity lighting controls to take lighting to a new level. Well done!
