At this year’s ISH trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany, Siemens will showcase its cloudbasedplatforms, IoT-enabled products and solutions that make buildings smarter,leveraging the potential that digitalization offers. Exhibiting under the motto “Yourfast lane to smart buildings”, the company is focusing on turning buildings into smartecosystems that respond to the business goals of building owners and operators forimproved building performance, as well as to tenants’ needs for comfortable and healthy buildings.
“Given the current challenges of climate change, the energy crisis and growingregulatory pressure, building stakeholders now need to urgently set the course tooperate their buildings in a smarter way,” said Henning Sandfort, CEO of Building Products at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “We continuously innovate and enhanceour portfolio, embracing new technologies to make buildings a better place for all stakeholders and optimize their climate footprint at the same time."
Innovations to boost building performance
Siemens not only offers solutions for large buildings and campuses, but alsosolutions targeted at small and medium-sized buildings. As they represent themajority of built-up areas worldwide, they contribute substantially to thedecarbonization efforts in the industry.
In Frankfurt, Siemens will display a new smart automation system at a show for thefirst time, addressing building facility managers’ and installers’ concerns around the complexity of building automation. The automation system is designed for simple,small to medium-sized buildings. It does not require any engineering efforts on thecustomer side, but still offers the benefits of optimizing the building’s energy efficiency.
Another highlight is Siemens’ well-established Desigo building automation system,now available in a version with superior protection against cyberattacks. As one ofthe industry’s first, the system has been equipped with BACnet Secure Connect onall levels from room automation to the building management system Desigo CC.Thanks to its scalability, Desigo can securely connect and control up to one thousand devices.
The energy crisis has resulted in a significant spike in demand for heat pumps.Siemens is showcasing its soon to be released HVAC controller Climatix S400 forheat pump applications in residential buildings. The compact controllers are ideal forapplications with renewable energy sources, contributing to environmentally friendlyHVAC equipment and improving the climate impact of buildings.
Solutions for data-driven buildings
At the exhibition, visitors can also interact with Building X, the holistic and openplatform of data-driven applications and connectivity solutions for buildingoperations, launched in 2022. They can further explore the recently launchedConnect Box, an IoT-based solution to manage small to medium-sized buildings in asmart and simple way.
