Linear Control Systems have designed, installed and maintain building management systems both as part of new building projects and during key redevelopment work. We have both public & private sector experience, helping a wide range of organisations realise true efficiency where energy control and monitoring are concerned.
BMS control & monitoring capabilities include:
Ventilation & Heating
Lifts, Elevators etc.
A BMS will consist of both hardware and software. The latter, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary; using such protocols as BACnet, Modbus, IP & MQTT. Vendors are also producing BMS that integrate using Internet protocols and open standards such as DeviceNet, SOAP, KNX, XML, and LonWorks.
Linear Control Systems are approved to work with technology from some of the leading manufacturers of BMS hardware and have the technical capability to deal competently with software from a number of leading framework developers.

Typical Characteristics of Building Management Systems (BMS)
You are more than likely to find Building Management Systems implemented in large buildings with extensive electrical, mechanical, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) and plumbing systems.
Systems linked to a BMS commonly represent around 40% of a building’s total energy usage; if lighting is included, this number will approach up to and in excess of 70%! BMS systems are vitally important in order to effectively manage energy demand; they monitor and control the amount of energy consumed by the devices within your building.
Having this control allows you to better optimise your output while the data reported back, including energy usage patterns and anomalies, enables you to identify problems leading to unnecessary energy usage quicker than ever before.
