Cylon BMS Installation including Web-Accessible HVAC Control System

Given the prestige of the venue, Linear Controls Systems Ltd were delighted to install a web enabled Cylon building management system within the multi-million pound Copthorne Hotel.

All 159 bedrooms have individual air conditioning units fitted with a Cylon UCU8 controller, to control and monitor the temperature in each individual room. These are operated by a VIN card system that enables the fan coil unit, the room temperature and fan speed to be adjusted via a room controller. When the room is unoccupied, an adjustable set back temperature comes into effect, to heat or cool the room dependant on temperature.

The Sheffield United Copthorne Hotel benefits from having a web-accessible HVAC Control System, allowing the customer to:

  • Monitor and control set points
  • View and archive alarm
  • Monitor and log temperatures
  • Monitor time schedules
  • Control fan speeds
  • Manage boilers and chillers

This can all be accessed and controlled via a front end PC over the site wide building management system network.
