Building Automation & Home Automation Solutions – Smart Building, Smart Home
With the advance of the electronic technology and network communication technology, and with a variety of embedded applications and applications of Internet of Things getting involved, the Smart Building / Smart Home is getting more and more popular. ICP DAS, as a pioneer in the field of embedded control, has accumulated extended experiences from embedded industrial control to applications in all areas. Thus is able to provide total solutions for a variety of embedded applications. For Smart Building / Smart Home projects, they can be divided into several sub-systems such as lighting, air conditioning, security, electricity, fire protection, mechanical & electrical devices and center control & monitoring systems.
Central Monitoring – For All Series
The central monitoring/control system of ICP DAS building automation provides more than 200 commonly used protocols for communication and interfaces for data exchange. With the help of InduSoft IWS SCADA software, it provides total solutions and sample references to simplify operations such as: read/write interfaces (UART, TCP, UDP) from the lower-layered communication ports commonly used in industrial/power control, trigger the connected devices via interfaces (.Net components, Dynamic-link library…) to access data stored in general database (MS SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) and operations related to Web Service information exchange. The system integrators can implement projects with ease and flexibility.

Lighting Control – For Touch, LC, SC, DALI Series
LC lighting control series targeted at load control which is different from the twisted-pair lighting control system (loop control). When lighting system is required to be modified due to alteration of the building space, it is required to adjust the deployments of the switches, software development and the control of lighting devices as well. For the cost incurred to build a twisted-pair lighting control system is pricy, and the modification of the control for the area is complicated, in addition, the traditional switches will require replacement, therefore, instead of using twisted-pair lighting control system, ICP DAS provides LC lighting control system as a better solution.
The LC-101 in LC lighting control system is perfect solution to incorporate traditional switches into advanced automation control (the deployment is illustrated in the following figure). In addition, ICP DAS also provides DALI Gateway system and wireless ZigBee I/O module and ZigBee converter for easily building up DALI and ZigBee lighting control system and provides flexible system expansion.

HVAC – For DL, CL, SC, PIR, IR, Touch Series
The HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems are varied from appearance to structure. To provide a full-functioned HVAC system for used in intelligent control applications, it is necessary to provides total solution in both software and hardware in order to meet various requirements from wide-range applications such as: air-cooled chillers, steam boilers or other large equipment, as well as cold or hot pumps to send in/out water, and air-handling unit for regulation & circulate air. The commonly used intelligent air conditioning software usually provides soft logic development kit that is IEC 61131 compliance. In addition, the backend SCADA software are also used in various HVAC systems.
