The Automated Logic PlantCTRL solution quickly responds to the needs of the building by automatically starting or stopping the plant, optimizing plant water temperatures, and matching the tonnage produced to the tonnage required by the building. The intuitive WebCTRL user interface provides facility managers with real-time and historical performance data for the chiller plant. In addition, pre-configured trends and alarms offer insight into plant maintenance and performance, while also aiding in system troubleshooting.
Designed to cover the most common chiller plant configurations, the factory-engineered control programs coordinate the management of chillers, pumps and towers into a finely tuned, cohesive system.
