DECENTRALIZED ROOM AUTOMATION

DISTRIBUTION BOX RAU

With our smart distribution boxes we offer you the necessary framework for your energy-efficient room automation

STUDY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF BIBERACH ON THE SUBJECT OF ENERGY SAVING 

A scientific study in three rooms with different automation levels was conducted at Biberach University of Applied Sciences during the lecture period. Considerable savings potential was identified within the process. More than 30% is possible for electrical energy consumption and even more than 50% for heating energy consumption! And all this in the existing structure without any structural changes. 

The study "Energy Efficiency through Building Automation" was conducted over a period of three years by Professor Dr.-Ing. Martin Becker and his team.

ROOM AUTOMATION INSTALLED DECENTRALLY

The areas of lighting, shading and room temperature are responsible for an optimal working atmosphere. Intelligent room automation devices are essential to ensure that they perform their task ideally. For fast, flexible and safe installation, we integrate the devices into the pluggable, decentralized electrical installation with our distribution boxes.

SUPPORT OF THE BUS SYSTEMS COMMONLY USED IN BUILDINGS THROUGH PLUGGABLE CONNECTION OPTIONS

KNX

KNX is a uniform and manufacturer-independent communication protocol for the intelligent networking of various building automation functions, which is standardised according to EN 50090 and ISO/IEC 14543. Usually, a two-wire bus cabling is used in the building, which is plug-in wired with the gesis® NV plug-in system (type BST14, green) from Wieland.

DALI

DALI is a sub-bus system, according to IEC 62386, for lighting technology that enables 5-pole cabling with mains and signal. This is installed, for example, with the Wieland gesis® CLASSIC installation connector system (type GST18i5, pastel blue).

DALI Connector

SMI

SMI is a sub-bus system for shading technology, which enables 5-pole wiring with mains and signal. This is installed, for example, with the Wieland RST® MINI installation plug-in system (type RST16i5, turquoise blue).

Ethernet oR OTHER BUS SYSTEMS

Other bus systems are common in the building and can also be plug-in integrated.

PROCEDURE FOR YOU AS A PLANNER

What does a building installation with our products mean for you?

1. BASIC CONSIDERATION 

First of all, a few basic questions should be clarified.

  • What functions are to be integrated?
  • What electronics will be used?
  • Which room units will be controlled?
  • What construction space is available or will be needed?
  • Will the plant installation be pluggable?
2. CONSULTATION 

Contact us and arrange an appointment, during which the necessary details will be clarified. The aim of the appointment is the specification of the system distributor, the definition of the tender text and a cost estimate. 

  • Specification of electronics and internals
  • Determination of the connection type
  • Planning the distributor size and material
  • Optimization of distribution variants and quantity structures
  • Determination of accessories such as connectors or assembled cables
3. INVITING TENDERS 

They write out the distributors and accessories.

  • You receive a cost estimate from us
  • We draw up the tender texts together (neutrally as well)
  • We handle the queries from installers
4. EXECUTION 

The executing company orders the required components.

  • Appointment with your Wieland project manager
  • Creation of assembly, wiring and connection diagrams (based on AutoCAD, EPLAN)
  • Final approval of the distributors by signature of the executing company
  • Production and routine testing of the system distributors in accordance with the applicable standards and guidelines
  • Handover of documents and plans to the contractor

PROCESS FOR YOU AS THE EXECUTING

What changes in the installation and the process?

1. INVITING TENDERS 

You produce the cost calculation.

  • Request for a quotation from Wieland based on the invitation to tender
  • Possibly more detailed specifications
  • Preparation of a net offer, as the system distributors are individual customer solutions
2. FINAL DESIGN

After the contract has been awarded, you order the distributors.

  • Appointment with your Wieland project manager
  • Determination of structure and wiring in coordination
  • Optimizations based on the real conditions
  • Discussion of delivery and logistics
  • Drawings are produced by Wieland Electric
  • Release for production by customer
  • Possibly sampling
3. PRODUCTION AT WIELAND 

The manifolds are manufactured at Wieland according to the agreements.

  • Machining and, if necessary, coating of the sheet/plastic material
  • Installation and wiring of electronics or further devices with labeling of the distributors
  • Unit testing of the manifolds
4. DELIVERY

The distributors are delivered to the desired address as agreed.

  • We deliver the manifolds commissioned, together with other components
  • Delivery is made on time by forwarding agent to the desired address

FAQ

What are the advantages of decentralized, pluggable electrical installation with distribution boxes? 
  • The Wieland solution offers simple and future-proof structures. Due to the pluggability, the systems are flexibly expandable.
  • Since the automation electronics do not have to be located in the main distribution boards, only small technical rooms are required.
  • The decentralized installation also leads to increased energy efficiency, as the three-phase current can be supplied right up to the consumer.
  • The room automation devices are located in the respective room, the fuse elements (RCCB, MCB) directly on site.
