Using thermally active building structures (TABS), concrete floors of entire stories are heated or cooled. This approach for room air conditioning  places demanding requirements on the respective control system. Desigo TABS-Control satisfies these needs based on a patented process. Additional benefits are  offered by advanced control functions like the one for the cycling module that controls the pump for circulating water through the concrete structures. In case of a typical office building, up to 75% of pumping power can be saved.

 

Highlights

  • Innovative control functions like cycling pump operation for reduced energy usage

  • Energy-efficient heating generation and refrigeration
    with self-control effect for room temperature

  • Cost-efficient construction (savings of up to 30%*)
    and low energy consumption (approx. 23%*)

  • Lower maintenance costs thanks to automatic operation throughout the year

  • Optimum adjustment of control using calculated values during commissioning and when usage changes
