Introducing Daikin’s Air Handling Units with Product Integrated Controls (AHU-PIC), an industry-leading IoT-ready Air Handling Unit offering ultimate control straight out of the box.
Daikin Air Handling Units (AHU) have continually combined innovative technology with high quality components to maximise energy efficiency and indoor air quality in medium to large scale commercial buildings.
Delivering more efficient, technologically-advanced and high-performing buildings is becoming an increasingly important consideration in the construction industry. Building owners, builders and consultants are placing a greater focus on specifying products that contribute to their smart building credentials whilst minimising risks around systems integration. Furthermore, Building 4.0 CRC, a cooperative research centre funded by the Australian Government, aimed at delivering new practices and technologies that improve key building phases is gaining traction within the industry due to its sustainability targets. Daikin is dedicated to assisting with this focus through the continual improvement and innovation of its products and technologies.
Now, AHU-PIC takes air handling units to a whole new level delivering ultimate control into the hands of building owners thanks to a configurable integrated control system that provides deeper insight into building performance with advanced systems integration and connectivity requiring fewer people and processes.
AHU-PIC arrives onsite with controls and sensors factory-fitted, pre-programmed and tested, ready for immediate installation. The integrated control is easily connected to existing BMS, BACnet or ICN platforms and is configurable for internet connectivity without the need for a BMS contractor on-site. With less trades on site for installation and connection, the WH&S risk is minimised and construction timelines are accelerated.
Intelligent data provided by the controller such as detailed readings on energy consumption, CO2 emission levels, building temperature, air quality levels and maintenance needs can be accessed remotely through the building’s BMS platform. Building managers can then remotely make adjustments to quickly implement both preventative and optimisation measures, often with the added benefit of reducing the building’s carbon footprint.
When commissioned in conjunction with other Daikin Applied Solutions such as chillers, building owners can benefit from a whole-of-system approach to data driven insights that allows them to monitor and optimise theperformance and maintenance needs of a number of solutions present within the building.
