Building Automation has been around since the 1980’s controlling mechanical equipment with electronics to achieve better control and energy efficiency than previous pneumatic systems. Because these systems came with proprietary equipment and programming, owners were at the mercy of the controls contractor for pricing and schedules. In 2006, new software framework was released to enable truly Open Architecture Building Automation (OABA). This framework allows multiple controls contractors and equipment manufacturers to install building automation systems in a biddable market. MCE has had many small and large projects with OABA resulting in satisfied owners. The easy to use web browser interface, shareable data and easy to read dashboards on laptops, tablets and operations workstations result in better control and visibility. By providing an owner the ability to see the entire system from wherever they choose and get energy analysis in graphical form, OABA is becoming the preferred choice for Building Automation Systems.
