Rising energy prices, increased tenant expectations, and today’s volatile business environment demand more than ever from building automation and security systems. Building control systems are now required to provide safe, comfortable, energy-efficient environments while retaining the ability to adjust to rapid changes and adapt to future needs. Advanced Control Corporation rises to the challenge, outfitting facilities with building automation systems from the versatile Andover Continuum product line. Andover Continuum provides integrated climate control and security systems designed with an emphasis on scalability, flexibility, and programmability to meet the increased demands of today’s facilities.
The powerful Continuum integrated building management system, uniquely built from the ground up as a joint climate control and security system, uses coordinated control strategies to provide a solution for the increasing demand for tight integration while reducing overall system cost. The same programming language is used for both HVAC and security applications, so coordinated system strategies are simple to implement. Thanks to the efficiency of Continuum’s design, there is no duplication of hardware and wiring as with separate systems.
Building managers face the need to integrate multiple systems from different companies. A comprehensive integrated solution must work in tandem with the latest open protocol standards, yet still be compatible with any installed base of legacy systems, which use a wide variety of proprietary protocols. Andover Continuum building automation and security systems are ideal for use in new and existing buildings situations as they are natively loaded with open protocol support to work with many other vendors’ products and information systems. They successfully bridge past, present, and future needs with backward compatibility and compliance with open standards.
Andover Continuum’s full system of controllers and user interface software products can be combined in many different ways to customize the system to meet the specific requirements of each facility. Scalable and adaptable, Andover Continuum can be configured for use in a single facility, expanded to control several buildings in different locations, or employed as a small building solution. Andover’s integrated small buildings controller is a single-board solution with all of the benefits of their flagship product line. Andover building automation is ideal for use in retail stores, convenience stores, gas stations, and other locations where low cost card-access and HVAC control is essential.
Andover Continuum software employs BACnet, an open ASHRAE/ANSI/ISO standard providing the opportunity for building automation systems to interoperate with one another. BACnet allows Andover Continuum to offer wireless solutions for both new and existing systems. A powerful graphical management tool lets you view and manage the entire wireless network based on real-time information through a standard browser from anywhere in the world with no additional software needed. To complete the integrated Andover Continuum architecture of your building management system, Advanced Control offers a full line of Continuum temperature, humidity, CO2, and pressure sensors.
