Building Management

The building with its many intelligent functions is mobile: about smart phones and Tablet PCs can they be easily by way and monitor. (tdx) Who today built or renovated, not coming to the topic of energy efficiency. Should be at least clear the private investor since the stricter energy saving Regulation (EnEV) in 2009. To further reduce energy consumption, the legal requirements will rise again in the next few years. Against this background, make more and more home owners on a tight building envelope, an efficient heating system and modern building technology.

It helps to maximize resources and increase the energy efficiency of the building”, white Torben Bayer, Home technology expert from Gira. In addition, one lives with intelligent building system technology safer and more comfortable. The latest trend: mobile building control via iPhone and co. mobile as never before lighting, heating or alarm system: that many intelligent functions of the building are now within easy reach of on the road, or control an any room in the House. Get more background information with materials from John K Castle. Especially said here are the mobile control devices by Apple, such as the new iPad 2, iPhone, or iPod touch. About so-called Gira HomeServer apps”, which are available in the iTunes store can be operated simply and centrally the entire House technology.

An interface which accesses the building control quickly and safely, clearly visualises all functions. On the touch screen can be displayed each demand different menus: the main menu displays all functions of the building, while in the room view all rooms assigned are listed by floors. A touch is sufficient, and it opens an overview of all the applications that are installed in a room. The presentation takes place in either horizontal or vertical, change is simply by turning the device, as Apple fans know of course. Even a KNX/EIB installation must principles of building equipment for a mobile building control is possible, in the House “exist for the master of the House already planning or decide a larger renovated his property”, Bayer said.

The Benefits Of Underfloor Heating Systems

Underfloor heating is practical and can help save energy it is already mid-November, the winter is coming and it gets colder day by day. Most households have already heat started weeks ago. Conventional heaters, which are attached to the wall, can heat a room more or less well. However, only the air is heated, heat and soils remain cold, if they are not close to the radiator. Cold feet are particularly uncomfortable: winter sports fans know that as soon as the feet are even cold, the remaining body freezes.

More and more people want therefore underfloor heating. The subsequent installation of underfloor heating in a house or an apartment is but unfortunately relatively complex and entail high costs. Always, the entire floor covering must be completely removed before the floor heating can be installed. Therefore, you should best before moving into a new home thoughts about a new Make underfloor heating. Then prepares the installation no major problems of underfloor heating systems and can be performed by a skilled handyman even single-handedly. Underfloor heating systems have extremely evolved in recent decades. The call Hung after years them, to be not as effective as conventional wall heaters. This is no longer the case: modern underfloor heating can heat a room only thirty minutes complete with suitable flooring. However it is important to know that not all flooring with underfloor heating are compatible: tiles are the best choice in definitely, finally, they promote the exchange of heat. Thus given a underfloor heating system not only permanently warm feet, but preserves also the wallet and the environment. Editorial: Martina Baader

XII Innovationspreises Thuringen

MAZeT presents award-winning LED color controller at the light + building- specialist for LED color light controller and provider of spectral and color sensors – presents its innovative RGB-LED colour light control from 11 to 16 April 2010 at the light + building in Frankfurt. Stand K33 in Hall 4.2 of the international world fair for lighting technology demonstrates the Jena team for colour sensors its JEN COLOR true color sensors and based regulated LED color light controller, which was recently awarded the first prize in the field of “Light and life” of the XII Innovationspreises Thuringen 2009. “LEDs open new dimensions of light and their design,” explains Dr. Fred Grunert, Executive Director of the MAZeT GmbH. “in the unity of light source, optics, sensors and Electronics new lighting systems can create. Lighting applications, RGB LEDs open up completely new dimensions in combination with optics and sensors: color, brightness and light distribution design is seemingly limitless. Right here deploys its colour light control MAZeT, to create a harmonious and stable lighting effect.” The scheme with the patented technology of true color sensor offers the necessary excellence for the development and production of high-quality LED light sources with precisely reproducible characteristics such as color, brightness and light distribution – independent of temperature influences, LED color schemes (binning) and aging. The color sensors be used in lighting systems, which automatically adapt to the brightness conditions but also to compensate for the aging of LEDs.

So, a homogenous and brilliant photograph under different environmental conditions will be permanent. In practice the colour and brightness synchronization several RGB LED light sources came for the first time publicly the light art project “LUCE.The tone of the colors”to use. The artist known for light art rosalie a concert hall with 170 balloons equipped, using innovative JEN COLOR color sensors and developed by MAZeT, application-specific control technology have been addressed. Several thousand visitors were impressed by the Jena Philharmonic concert with the “Firebird” by Igor Strawinsky, as well as the Symphony “Prometheus” of the Russian composer Alexander Skrjabin and to synchronous light moods. A practical application of control technology with the JEN COLOR true color sensor can be found, for example, in the latest model of the U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing.

It regulates the cabin light here, so that all LEDs over the years emit a uniform light colour. Maintain the appearance and about the exchange of individual luminaires, the aging of the LEDs or temperature differences result not too visible and unsightly color or brightness differences. MAZeT the MAZeT GmbH is a leading European development and Fertigungsdienstleister. The 1992 company headquartered in Jena develops, manufactures and delivers software, custom electronic assemblies and ASICs and distributes world’s own products of the brand JENCOLOR(tm). Due to the wide range of technology and application know-how is the MAZeT GmbH in the field of industrial electronics and the opto-sensors a reliable and proven service partner for tailored, customer-specific solutions.
