Building Automation

Plant and control schemes are created in building automation using the Building Automation discipline. Function lists are structured according to the guidelines VDI 3814 and 3813 for the entire building automation. The symbols placed in a schema are stored with concrete products and related manufacturer data from the supplied extensive database or from wscaduniverse.com. This, in turn, serves as the basis for materials and parts lists and is used for the procurement of materials and price determination. The color display of system and functional diagrams in all popular formats with the subsequent analysis of all functions, materials, field devices and cables provide constant transparency and traceability throughout the project. The interdisciplinary integration of all material data in the E-CAD environment (schematic creation, cabinet layout planning, electrical installation and distribution plan) rounds off the integrated software package.

Extensive symbol and macro libraries and Materials and Data Point Browsers enable rapid processing and simplify the workflow considerably. The integrated data point and signal management allows for easy management of all objects, signals and functions. Plug-ins enable automatic plant and address labeling – starting with an identification of the building, through structure identification, down to signal labeling. Since the CAD/PDF data of external plans from other subsections of technical building equipment such as heating, ventilation, refrigeration and electrical engineering can be easily imported, these preliminary inputs can be used as a basis for further efficient planning, while also saving a significant amount of time.
