Case Study

Retrofiting a Monitoring System for Proforma in Cleveland, Ohio

Reliable Controls® Authorized Dealer, Control Concepts Ohio, successfully completed a retrofit installation of a monitoring system for Proforma’s Cleveland, Ohio office. The front end of the installation is the MACH- ProWebSysTM, chosen by Control Concepts Ohio because of its future-friendly BACnet® core and flexibility with regards to system expansion and mechanical plant control.

Two SSL- H-IO were installed to monitor temperature, humidity, and water in the building’s two server rooms. Three SMART- Sensor™ EnOcean Accesspoint monitors were installed, one on each floor, for wireless communication with nine SPACE-Sensor™ EnOcean sensors, three per floor.

The Reliable Controls® wireless solution built around the EnOcean open-protocol chipset was an obvious choice for Control Concepts Ohio due in large measure to the system’s very low cost for a very high-tech monitoring solution. Wireless deployment was found to be effortless, and provided immediate benefits to the building owner in saved costs for wire and labor, while still providing the customer with everything on their wish list. For Control Concepts Ohio, the Reliable Controls® EnOcean wireless monitoring solution proved to be simple, affordable, and robust – a great fit for multilevel 24-7 facilities.
