Cooling

Atamate software controls passive and active cooling systems

  • Atamate can control passive cooling or active air conditioning systems.
  • Dual temperature sensors monitor every room to allow occupancy-based temperature control.
  • Integration with heating and ventilation systems ensures high air quality, comfortable temperatures at minimal energy costs.
  • Atamate software is compatible with common control protocols such as BACnet and Modbus.

Passive cooling

Passive cooling uses little or no energy to minimise building overheating. During the day shading can be used to minimise solar heat gains. At night, cross ventilation or passive stack techniques can be created by opening windows or vents to naturally cool the building. All these processes are automated and controlled by Atamate.

Active cooling

Air-conditioning is a substantial part of the running costs of most commercial buildings, so Atamate controls can maximise efficiency. Occupancy-based control ensures that energy is not used when it is not needed, and integration ensures that different systems don’t work in opposition to each other such as by switching off the air conditioning when the windows are open.

Hybrid Cooling

A combination of passive and active cooling can be the best way to regulate internal temperature when heat gains vary widely during the day. Atamate controls combine the use of different systems to keep the building comfortable with minimal energy expenditure.

Monitoring and regulatory compliance

Atamate controls not only maintain a comfortable temperature in a building, but can produce reports on the internal temperature and the energy used to keep it comfortable, which facilitates building management and demonstrates regulatory compliance.

Ventilation
Control of all types of background and purge systems to maintain air quality inside a building.
Windows and shading
Automation of windows, curtains and blinds integrated with lighting, ventilation and temperature controls.
Heating
Zonal heating control keeps a building efficient and comfortable, and is compatible with any type of heating.
