Cooling

What does Atamate smart cooling do?

Air conditioning unit
  • Atamate controls passive cooling or active cooling systems.
  • We monitor every room using dual temperature sensors to allow occupancy-based temperature control.
  • Our control ensures high air quality and comfortable temperature through integration with heating and ventilation systems at minimal energy costs.
  • Atamate is compatible with all common control protocols such as BACnet and Modbus.

Benefits of smart cooling control

Reduce the costs of cooling

Cooling is a substantial cost for most commercial buildings. Atamate’s occupancy-based control ensures that energy isn’t used when it isn’t needed.

Cooling efficiency

Atamate’s holistic control will switch off the air conditioning when the windows are open. In a temperate climate, this also prevents cooling and heating at the same time.

Maximise Passive cooling

Passive cooling uses little or no energy to minimise building overheating. During the day, shading can be used to minimise solar heat gain. In cooler periods or 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.

Simplify air conditioning unit maintenance

Extract management information from air conditioning units to ensure the efficient running of each unit. Maintenance of units can be costly and Atamate provides real-time data for each unit so you’re made aware of any issues early.

How smart cooling works

Thermal gains in buildings typically come from high external air temperatures, solar gain, the input of warm air, and internal gains from people and equipment. In hot countries, active cooling (air conditioning) is needed to combat this. In a milder climate such as the UK, both active and passive cooling techniques can be used.

Atamate collects sensor information throughout the building to automate the control of any active and passive cooling system.

WINDOW SENSORS

Window sensors notify the Atamate system of the window position. This can be used to turn off the air conditioning system or provide night-time cooling when linked to a motorised window.

Monitoring and data in smart cooling

Data and charts are provided by Atamate to monitor air conditioners, as well as extract maintenance data from air conditioning units and provide them to facilities or building managers.

Real-time tracking of assets in your building will ensure that each unit is functioning as expected, pre-empting maintenance issues and managing resources accordingly.

Who would use smart cooling?

HOT CLIMATES

In many parts of the world, active cooling systems are essential for life. However, even in the hottest climates, few rooms are permanently occupied giving substantial energy saving with the correct controls.

TEMPERATE CLIMATES 

Summer cooling in UK new builds is becoming more of an issue. As Atamate integrates all controls in a building, adding shading is a simple method of minimising overheating. Automating windows and vents and providing cross ventilation and passive stack ventilation also reduces summer temperatures without using air conditioning.
