Building Automation System
Kraft Foods (Madison, Wisconsin)
The intent of this project was to replaced the existing obsolete, proprietary BAS with a new system that allowed the Owner the flexibility of changing control vendors in the future if necessary. This project included replacing controls on twenty AHUs, five heating exchangers, three chillers, and four cooling towers. An Ethernet backbone was provided so that a service technician can plug in a laptop computer in any of the seventeen mechanical rooms, regardless of whether a system controller or network controller was installed in the room. This backbone makes it easy for the future DDC control of the terminal devices, by creating multiple locations for a new network controller to connect to the existing BAS.
