Spanish Matrix for networked building automation

Matrix develops MTX-StarBMS with solutions from congatec and Tridium

A congatec Computer-on-Module (COM) and the Niagara Framework® – that’s the hardware/software duo at the heart of a compact and scalable building automation control center developed by Spanish electronics company Matrix

Many large buildings such as hospitals, train stations, offices or residential complexes are equipped with building automation systems today. All too often though, they operate as stand-alone units. IoT-based (Internet of Things) management with higher-level data collection and analysis is rare. Yet the complexity of building management is increasing – beyond standard system monitoring and control, there is now also a need to monitor, network and improve the functionality of the systems to deliver more comfort and sustainable carbon footprint reductions – for instance, by optimizing the blend of self-generated solar energy and external power supply in a networked energy system. IoT-based HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems find the right balance between heating, ventilation, and humidity to ensure a pleasant indoor climate, regardless of rain or shine or season.
