GEZE at eltefa 2017: the biggest regional trade fair for the electrical sector - Automated doors & windows in building automation GEZE innovative system solutions complete ‘Smart Buildings’

With new innovative solutions, automated doors and windows can also be integrated into modern building automation. GEZE will be presenting multifunctional door and window systems integrated into network solutions across all product categories and offers new opportunities for convenient, secure and energy-saving building operation in smart buildings.

The highlights of the trade fair presentation will be the new GEZE Cockpit building automation system and interface modules for integrating GEZE products and systems into the building network. GEZE uses BACnet and KNX for this purpose – the most popular, open communication protocols in building automation in the world.

With GEZE Cockpit, automated GEZE products from the door, window and safety technology areas can be reliably controlled and monitored precisely. With the new system, the ‘complete intelligence’ of the products can be incorporated into the building network for the first time: doors and windows can be controlled “intelligently” together with other participants of the system. Data exchange between GEZE Cockpit and the integrated doors and windows is carried out via the IO 420 BACnet interface module. The system can be used as an independent building automation system, or be integrated into a higher-ranking building control system.

GEZE will also demonstrate the networking of automated window systems that are integrated into a building automation system with the KNX standard. For controlled, natural ventilation, the GEZE chain and spindle drives of the IQ windowdrives series can be integrated as direct bus participants in KNX building systems via the award-winning IQ box KNX interface module. This means that automated windows can also be ‘intelligently’ monitored and operated from a central location.

GEZE will be presenting the complete range of electric strikes with variants for standard applications as well as fire protection and safety doors. IST systems electric strikes stand out thanks to small dimensions and compact configurations. They are compatible with electric strikes of all common manufacturers and can be easily replaced in existing doors.
