Nowadays number and complexity of electrical and mechanical systems in the buildings increase as technology develops. Therefore management of the systems gets harder and the need of central management arises. Building management systems fulfills the need of central management. They can monitor and control many systems such as HVAC, Access control, CCTV, security systems and fire alarm systems.
Building management systems can be used in different types of projects such as industrial facilities, hospitals, shopping malls, business centers, airports and residences. Management of different types of systems from a center decreases the number of employees and operating costs. In fact, building management systems provide many advantages such as energy efficiency, comfort and security.
All of the security systems should be integrated to building management systems so that life and property safety of residents is maintained. We know the importance of integration for a complete security system solution. So we developed Maxlogic Modbus Modules for fire alarm system integration with building management system.
By the help of Modbus Module, events in fire alarm systems such as fire alarm, fault alarm etc. can be sent to building management system via Modbus protocole. Then building management system can control other systems in the building according to the information taken from fire alarm system. For example, building management system can trigger emergency announce system for evacuation when fire alarm signal is sent from fire alarm system. Also building management system can send commands to fire alarm system like reset, silence alarm and silence buzzer.
When there is only one fire alarm control panel, Modbus card can be used instead of Modbus Module. This application provides more economical and efficient solution for the system.
Fire alarm systems may include multiple control panels as well – especially in projects that include several buildings. Maxlogic Modbus Module can provide integration of network system with maximum 63 control panels. Therefore Maxlogic addressable fire alarm systems installed in projects which consist of many buildings like universities and residence projects can be integrated to building management systems.
As a result, integration of fire alarm systems with building management systems is crucial for life and property safety of residents. Maxlogic Modbus Module, which is developed by our 32-year of experience and know-how, provides communication between fire alarm and building management system, and provides safety in case of fire.
