The future of efficient buildings is changing – and Carrier is at the Center of it all.
Opened in April 2011 in Shanghai, the AdvanTEC Solutions Center gathers experts in global energy efficiency and environment protection who are dedicated to developing sustainable building solutions. Based on Carrier’s core value of innovation, the Center offers clients in Asia and around the world solutions capable of achieving higher energy efficiency, greater system performance and more environmental benefits in applications ranging from hotels to data centers.
Through the establishment of the AdvanTEC Solutions Center, Carrier has enhanced its ability to offer tailored, innovative solutions including heat recovery, inverter technology, district cooling/heating, energy storage, water source heat pump systems, air terminals for IAQ and other technologies. We are even able to bring together the combined strength of other UTC Climate, Controls & Security brands to offer groundbreaking integrated solutions encompassing energy, safety and security.
Intelligent building technologies
When you control your building, you control your energy costs.
Plant System Manager Solution
Carrier® ChillerVu™ controller based Plant System Manager Solution delivers fully optimized control for chiller plant operations from a sophisticated, scalable native BACnet® control solution.
Available in Asia, the new Plant System Manager Solution builds on the capabilities of Carrier’s legacy Chillervisor System Manager (CSM) and the WebCTRL®/i-Vu® Open Chiller Plant Application Suite. A dedicated plant system controller with a library of factory-engineered control programs, the ChillerVu is designed to cover the most common chiller plant configurations. The scalable hardware and software architecture allows for future cost-effective plant expansion and system upgrades as improved efficiency algorithms and control methodologies are developed.
Designed to provide optimized management over the entire chiller plant, the factory-engineered control programs coordinate the management of chillers, pumps and towers into a finely tuned, cohesive system. The Carrier® ChillerVu™ controller based Plant System Manager Solution is able to control Carrier 16, 19, 23, or 30 series chillers (air- or water-cooled), and includes full integration capabilities, allowing it to monitor and control other equipment in the chiller plant, including non-Carrier chillers.
The Carrier® ChillerVu™ controller based Plant System Manager Solution quickly responds to the needs of the building by automatically starting or stopping the plant, optimizing plant water temperatures, and matching the tonnage produced to the tonnage required by the building. The intuitive WebCTRL®/i-Vu user interface provides facility managers with real-time and historical performance data for the chiller plant. In addition, pre-configured trends and alarms offer insight into plant maintenance and performance, while also providing aid in system troubleshooting.
The remote monitoring system uses Browser/Server (B/S) architecture. The system automatically collects and stores data using pre-defined parameters. Combined with existing field services, remote monitoring can help to identify potential risks before they turn into more costly problems, providing building managers and field engineers with valuable information.
Intelligent Building Management System (IBMS) is the monitoring and management system applied in the whole building. Thanks to its management function with standardized and completed interface, various subsystems could be integrated into a "organic" unified system, archiving information exchange among different subsystems and protocol conversions. Through the integrated management of all subsystems information and centralized monitoring, it enables intelligent building controls optimization and sustainable environmental management.
IBMS is based on the WebCTRL® platform from Automated Logic. WebCTRL's open architecture and support for industry standards enable the integration between third party and subsystems from UTC Climate, Controls & Security, including vertical transportation, fire &security, and hotel room management system. The WebCTRL system is capable of supporting multiple protocols over a TCP/IP network allowing many equipment items to be connected directly to the main WebCTRL backbone. By supporting the integration of systems and equipment with various standard protocols from third parties, UTC Climate, Controls & Security provides you a one-stop solution of the full set of building management systems.
