Simplifying building Management with Future Focused Technologies

Shrikant Bapat, General Manager - Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls IndiaJohnson Controls is a global diversified technology and multi industrial leader which is the premier suppliers of HVAC controls, refrigeration and HVAC equipment.

The concurrent establishment of commercial infrastructure along with sustainable and scalable equipment and manufacturing is the increasing norm of the current times. These are being put into efforts with the manufacturing push wherein every commercial entity needs HVAC for the office and several factories opening the gate for better prospect of HVAC industry in the future.

In line with the demand and requirements of various industries, ACREX India 2018 a three-day event by the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air conditioning engineers witnessed nearly about 400 strong exhibitors from across the world. Johnson Controls showcased all its new products and solutions. We displayed cuttingedge technologies and products including Metasys 9.0, YORK YGWH YVWH and YORK YZ.

The Hall of Fame Solutions
The YORK YZ chiller is nothing less than a revolutionary advancement that challenges everything about conventional chiller design. The YZ Magnetic Bearing Centrifugal chiller utilizes reliable, robust, and low-maintenance induction motors. The YZ, along with VSD standards, variable geometry diffuser and magnetic bearing technology, delivers highly energy efficient chilling technology. The YZ has been fully optimized which has a Global Warming Potential(GWP) of 1 that has the lowest heat trapping
capability. Yet, one other award winning premier solution of us was displayed. It was Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solution that provides all the benefits of a complete PSIM platform. Named as Proximex Surveillint, it's basically designed as a solution beneficial for both one site environment, as well as global enterprises, and deployable across hundreds of locations. This can work in any commercial establishment and act with security aspects of smart buildings a prerequisite for several multinational companies. It is basically a complete command and control kind of solution which finds its utility in smart cities. The strategic focus saw all types of air distribution methods, chillers, smaller HVAC, and Johnson Controls Hitachi for inverter technology-based room air conditioners, cabin cooling, and cooling individual spaces. Along with these larger chillers for cooling huge buildings and pillars, factories are witnessing the District Cooling Refrigeration. The term District is coined to showcase the size of the installations that can appear to be a mini city.

The dependence on HVAC and refrigeration is widespread across several verticals

Laying the Concrete of Smart Cities
Aiming for smart cities, several solutions are emerging used in some 270 cities across the globe. The same concept is being initiated in India as well. Several disjoint industries like pharma, petrochemicals and other such industries are in dire need of climate control tools and initiatives. The dependence on HVAC and refrigeration is widespread across several verticals. For instance, all the manufacturing in the pharma sector takes place in a highly controlled temperature and in highly controlled methods. It thus functions on the basic infrastructure that installs HVAC equipment as the concrete of every detail.

In due course of time, HVAC in India will be rising. With the increased efforts of GoI, smart cities are rising at an exponential rate and thereby justifying the manufacturing sector of these instruments, equipment and controls in India, Middle-East and African countries.

While several industries are bound to tinker with the control and safety instruments, India will be in to become a vital food processing industry, wherein temperature control and safety protocols can decide the fate of several stakeholders. Absolutely controlled environments are considered mandatory to ensure the fineness and quality of food to be delivered to pass the stringent steps of quality checks.These initiatives and outlooks are noteworthy in the coming times and we are ahead of the curve when it comes to the Indian requirements.
