Unusual Aspects:
  • Large number of HLI from Innotech to other protocols and devices.
  • Large volume of alarm monitoring from many trades: Electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, security, lift services, fire services and lighting control
  • Long distances between out-buildings necessitated using BACnet/IP over third party structured network cabling for communications between Maxim controllers in different buildings, and with iComm.

The IG03 gateway has again been invaluable in seamless integration to the other services, ensuring all requirements of the client were met. The VAVmax controllers have impressed seasoned commissioning personnel and consultants alike, with the accuracy and precision of operation. And as usual the Max IIIs flexibility and cost-effectiveness has been beneficial to us enabling it to be used exclusively in all aspects of control and monitoring across the site.
