ABB, a technology leader in electrification and automation, unveiled its smart building management systems (BMS) for the Middle East region at the Light Middle East and Intelligent Building Middle East 2023 event, which kicked off today (January 17) at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Over the next three days, ABB will be showcasing other primary products in its smart building vertical including the new Zenit wiring devices range, the ABB i-bus KNX, the ABB SmartTouch 10, the [email protected] and Emergency Lighting.
The ABB Cylon Smart Building Management Systems portfolio of products covers scalable automation and energy control for a wide variety of commercial or industrial buildings, regardless of size.
The BMS enables buildings to automate functions and reduce energy costs with energy control and management. It also allows real-time monitoring and control of the building facility.
Announcing its launch, Thamer Al Omari, the Product Marketing Director for Smart Building, said: "We are proud to present the ABB Cylon BMS, our holistic and integrated intelligent building solution at the event this year. It is our latest offering in the smart building management vertical and it provides customers with a comprehensive solution for smarter and more efficient buildings."
"ABB also has a wide range of products and solutions, from Building Management Systems to conventional wiring devices that we will showcase at Light ME and Intelligent Business ME 2023," he stated.
ABB had acquired Cylon Controls in 2020 and its range of products which includes HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) controls and building energy management systems.
ABB has since integrated Cylon Controls' smart building portfolio into its offerings, allowing them to provide real-time data, operational analytics, and integrated applications for efficient and sustainable management of buildings, he added.
According to him, ABB is a long-time supporter of Light + Building events because it offers an excellent platform to meet and network with partners and customers.
"This year is a perfect opportunity to display our latest building technologies to the Middle East because this region is known for its constantly changing skyline with the addition of many new architectural wonders every year. It is also a wonderful opportunity for us to discuss the role of building infrastructure in achieving our mission of carbon neutrality by 2030," he stated.
ABB said its Cylon BMS provides a comprehensive approach to smart building management by seamlessly connecting and integrating multiple BMS solutions to guarantee optimal building management and monitoring.
Through intelligent air-conditioning, heating, and emergency lighting, it can ensure greater energy efficiency, increased levels of security, and can maximize occupant comfort and health, it stated.
Al Omari said ABB was using smart building solutions to address the growing carbon footprint of buildings around the world as they consumed more than 30% of the world’s energy while emitting 40% of global carbon emissions.
With its ‘Mission to Zero’ programs, ABB aims to use smart energy and asset management to make any building energy-efficient and carbon neutral and achieve net zero emissions by 2030.-TradeArabia News Service
