In an effort to help reduce costs, improve comfort and productivity, and lessen the impact on the environment, building owners are designing and creating “smart” buildings. Building Automation Systems (BAS) are helping owners minimize energy use, optimize HVAC equipment, and integrate fire, security, lighting and other systems throughout a single building or entire campus.
Installed in facilities large and small, and from simple to sophisticated, the open protocol, Web-based SIEMENS BACnet BAS is the “brains” behind many of today’s smartest buildings, ensuring building owners are getting the most out of their buildings, today and in the future.
The SIEMENS BACnet system is ideal for offices, hospitals, K-12 schools and campuses, hotels, airports, museums, commercial buildings, single buildings or multi-building campuses.
SIEMENS seamlessly links industry standard protocols such as BACnet®, LonTalk®, and Modbus®, and incorporates the power of Tridium’s Niagara® Framework, into a single, robust control system. Building operators are able to control everything through a single workstation with high-end graphics that create a superior user experience with sophisticated system equipment visualization. SIEMENS BACnet Web-enabled controllers and mobile apps allow system access from anywhere, at any time.
Freedom From A Proprietary System, Adaptability For Today And Tomorrow
The system’s open platform has industry–wide acceptance and provides the flexibility to integrate to systems and devices supporting many standard protocols and the Tridium Niagara Framework.
Known in the industry as the best choice for interoperable building automation systems, BACnet is relied upon to knit together a cohesive, tightly integrated system despite disparate technologies or vendor systems. BTL (BACnet Testing Laboratories) listed controllers provide assurance of interoperability in a complex world.
BACnet is incorporated into every level of the SIEMENS system, from the workstation and primary controllers to the field level network devices. BACnet provides facility operators with a powerful system that brings together standard protocol interoperability with productivity boosting features and functions.
Scalable and fully programmable components allow the SIEMENS BACnet BAS to be customized to meet your exact building needs. Through innovative software updates and powerful hardware components, your facility can make the most out of current technology and remain prepared for maximum efficiency well into the future. As new technologies emerge, SIEMENS ensures a smooth migration, so your initial investment is preserved and your buildings remain up-to-date.
With its integration power, open architecture, Web-enabled programmability, and BACnet controllers at every level, SIEMENS BACnet is an investment that will pay you back for years to come.

Critical Environment Technology – CET
Lab buildings use a lot of energy. In fact, a lab space consumes four to eight times more energy than typical office environments. The diverse lab equipment is a contributing factor—especially the fume hoods and ventilation system, which accounts for approximately 60% of the energy consumed in the lab space. The ways in which people interact with lab equipment are also a significant contributing factor. From running lights and equipment at full capacity around the clock to leaving fume hoods open, the manual process of interacting with a lab space can have a significant impact on its energy consumption and operation and can affect safety and compliance.
Life Science end users who operate critical controlled environments require simpler, easier solutions for operating labs, as well as visibility into lab performance to ensure lab facilities are safe, well-maintained, meet proper working conditions, and operate holistically—in an effort to make better decisions for the life of the facility.
Siemens Critical Environment solutions easily integrate into your building automation system and are especially designed for room pressure control, ventilation and general extractions, laboratory fume hood control, and room air conditioning. CET offers a range of reliable air volume flow controllers and supplementary components for the secure, precise, and fast measurement, control, and monitoring of air volume flows and room pressures in buildings. The overall system provides maximum efficiency, cost effectiveness, safety, and security.
To comply with the strict regulations designed to ensure occupant health and safety and production and storage requirements, a highly specialized technological infrastructure must be implemented and maintained. There are also huge energy saving potential when converting variable volume controls to existing constant volume air valve and fan applications.
Benefits of CET include:
- Optimizes lab operations
- Measures lab/room pressurization and airflow
- Provides fume hood control
- Monitors room condition
- Optimizes lab operations integral controls
- Saves energy
Buildings used for tasks related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, pharmacies, veterinary care, research, development, and storage in the life sciences.
CET applications include:
- Chemistry room
- Clean room
- Laboratory room
- Operating room
- Isolation room
- Patient room
- Production room
- Storage room

Integral controls optimize lab operations
Total Room Automation involves control of a lab’s HVAC systems and requires the implementation of DXR controllers and Desigo™ CC for the lab’s building automation and management system. No field integration is required to provide common control for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, or shades, and lab managers only need to learn and be trained on one system for optimal operations. Learn more about how a complete building automation solution can help improve overall safety, productivity, and energy efficiency.
The Siemens Talon line of controls is founded on the Tridium Niagara N4 platform. This maximized its ability to maintain existing systems while providing a complete expandability to all new and modern applications. Talon is fully compatible with many legacy controllers along with BACnet and LON communication protocols.
