  1. 1. Sub Title 24.10.03 / Jupp Gauchel, RaumComputer AG, Karlsruhe, Germany RaumComputer® – A Platform for Integrated Building Services 1 of 28
  2. 2. Building and Room Automation • Building Automation is the automation, monitoring und runtime optimization of all mechanical and electrical systems in buildings. • Its focus is the most effective delivery of centrally created or supplied energies / media to many delivery points which all may have different demands. • RaumComputer (RC) has another focus: to organise all (!) building services which are offered every day anew and will be delivered on demand of the occupants (and maybe on account). • Organising these services means to organise the daily use of rooms. That´s why RaumComputer is mainly focused on Room Automation. 2 of 28

Room Automation light-, temperature-, humidity- sensors etc. M 3 of 28 volume flow control, cooling ceiling etc. M blind radiatornetwork plug-in light light M occupancy, operable window opening sensors, glass pressure alarm etc. blind radiator lights, temperature, blinds, access, etc. light light network plug-in • facilities management, eCommerce services media and conferencing technology
  4. 4. RaumComputer • A new approach towards a more intelligent Building Automation. • The functional range of Room Automation is expanded towards an open, Internet based and lifecycle oriented platform for building services. • Room Automation is primarily understood as a software task and is solved with a new software design based on new database, PC and Internet technologies. • All efforts have in vision to create a first building operating system. 4 of 28

  6. 6. Room Automation Today • All advantages of RaumComputer relate to costs and comfort, when installing a system (invest) and operating it (lifecycle). • RaumComputer is mainly focused on lifecycle advantages. • But – today advantages solely count when installing a system – especially cost advantages, on the base of four, five services only. • Today lifecycle advantages are more or less important extras. But certainly they are the future of RaumComputer. 6 of 28

  12. 12. Management • A software tool for (re)configuring the automation functions / services of RaumComputer. • A special application of a Facilities Management system (CAFM) – the system byron/BIS (www.byron.ch). • For an intuitive, graphic based (re)configuring of RCinstallations – To represent a RCinstallation in one big data model – based on networking objects that can be descibed freely – rooms, technical equipment, users etc. – For a comprehensive service management • The tool allows a real integration / convergence of building automation und facilities management, – far beyond its prior role in the RCcontext. 12 of 28
  13. 13. Management & Lifecycle • RaumComputer can adequately deal with the increasing pace of changes in modern work organisations. • RC can be reconfigured at any time and online – if and when – occupants have new demands, occupants move, floors and rooms are reshaped etc. – without need of in-depth technical knowledge of the installation, explicit programming and changes of RChardware. • RaumComputer can handle any mix of clients – single user and user groups, occupants and technicans – for individual and safe services – according to various needs and demands in big buildings. 13 of 28

  17. 17. Automation • Automation is done in OSGi – based on an implementation by ProSyst (www.prosyst.com). • The tool is capable – to accept the data model of the RCinstallation as instruction for automation, – to handle up to 25.000 operatable devices (our current experience), – to distribute all automation functions / services down to small processors / embedded systems, – to automatically represent all operatable devices and all automation functions in Web based user-interfaces / Web pages. • In addition – the tool is capable to integrate any bus system on the field level – with reasonable programming efforts, – different systems per installation too. 17 of 28

  22. 22. Fieldbus / Actuators & Sensors 22 of 28 • Field is open for any bus system that has a gateway, – that talks TCP/IP to the automation / management – and allows the management easy access to all devices / bus terminals – especially when (re)configuring. • Implemented: – Beckhoff BC 9000 – A leading system for industrial automation / good experiences (www.beckhoff.com) – RaumLink® – Our own new bus system, ready for plug´n play. – A system prototype for wireless security applications (Cerberus).
  23. 23. Fieldbus – RaumLink 23 of 28 • A state of the art alternative of excellent value to conventional systems, – offering an Internet specific look and feel – based on full access to all bus terminals via Web pages – minimizing expensive work – plug´n play of all bus terminals, always knowing their accurate succession / position on the bus, prefabricated cabeling etc. • In addition, RaumLink offers many ways to collect data on the field level.
