Honeywell, Inc., Minneapolis, Minn.
A number of different automation systems for use in monitoring and controlling building equipment are described in this brochure. The system functions include--(1) collection of information, (2) processing and display of data at a central panel, and (3) taking corrective action by sounding alarms, making adjustments, or automatically starting and stopping equipment for building systems such as air conditioning control, equipment surveillance, security monitoring, and fire detection. The automation systems options, ranging in price and complexity, include both pneumatic and electrical linkages, use of photo slides to present control diagrams, data printers, and recorders, computer programming and memory, and building intercommunication systems. Descriptions, characteristics, advantages, costs and benefits are presented for each alternative. Examples of installed systems include schools and other building types. (MM)
