One Building One System

The ‘FixSus Total Integrated Building Automation System (TIBA)’ reduces the waste of energy in buildings and centralizes the management of the buildings. With the TIBA system, each energy-saving potential of a building is implemented by a simple remote follow-up.

The TIBA system is a self-learning, industrial automation system that puts the focus on saving energy. For this, FixSus uses an extended visualization and notification system whereby close monitoring can be guaranteed. This combination is unique in the HVAC world.

Innovative and advanced – yet simple in concept. The ‘FixSus Building Management System’ is an open PLC based control, which enables its users to decide on, and modify, the system settings themselves.

Save energy with FixSus

Saving energy starts with a smart choice of the installations in the building: heat pumps, condensation boilers, blinds, LED lighting, etc.

But did you know that a smart control can create a lot more additional savings?

At FixSus, the maxim ‘to measure is to know’ has been developed and advanced, so we can go a step further in making savings without this requiring a big investment.

For example, we measure the amount of daylight to adjust the optimal illumination level. If there is enough light in a space, the lamps do not have to work at full power. When nobody is in the space, the lighting is turned off automatically.

FixSus developed a feedback system that keeps track of the speed at which a building cools or heats up, so that the heating installation starts to function at just the right moment to bring the spaces to the required temperature with a water temperature that is as low as possible. This is how we make optimal use of the condensation function of the boiler.

The air conditioning is controlled by air quality measurements so that the ventilators never operate more than necessary when fewer people are present in the building. We even use the weather forecast to let the air ‘Freecool’. This provides an almost free cooling down of the building during the summer and allows the energy-intensive aircon not to work so much.

Through a measurement of the sun’s position and the building’s interior temperature, the system controls the blinds so that we make optimal use of the free warmth of the sun. Similarly, we can cool down with minimal use of the aircon or use of the roof water-sprinkler system to cool down.

FixSus even measures the warmth of the earth at a depth of 150 meters so that a system of borehole-energy storage (BES-field) is always being optimally used – thereby ensuring that in the following year there is enough warmth or cold-capacity present in the ground.

By taking all these measures, you can enjoy the comfort of a lower energy bill.
