Key features of NV Advance®
Optimized Night Cooling
Sensors send data on the indoor and outdoor conditions allowing the system to calculate an optimized night cooling approach while maintaining building security.
Continuous logging and storage of all data concerning interior climate, weather conditions, window positions and any system errors. Ideal for analysis and system optimization.
This gives the user intuitive access for monitoring and adjusting the system. The tool also includes visualization of building, floor and room status with the possibility of opening/closing windows.
Built-in controller coordinates venetian blinds and awnings. It also includes functions such as timed up/down function linked to calendar, up/down function depending on lux levels, and the option of manual input.
Integrated Smoke Ventilation
Incorporates smoke ventilation control with natural ventilation control which means that the same equipment can be used for both purposes. Available in select markets only.
Intelligent control of windows: MotorLink®
MotorLink® is a communication technology that enables 2-way control and feedback between window actuators and the Building Management System via the MotorController. All WindowMaster control systems are MotorLink® capable with many of our actuators. Click below to learn more and see related products.Read more
BREEAM, “Excellent” building with natural ventilation
City of Glasgow Colleges took a definitive commitment to the environment by embracing several sustainable design strategies such as automated natural ventilation. To reduce heat loads and maintain air quality, the atrium acts as a natural stack to drive cross ventilation through the building.See the full case
Zero-energy strategy with natural ventilation
HouseZero of Harvard University was renovated to inspire others by how older, existing structures can be altered to become ultra-efficient facilities. The older indoor climate systems were fully replaced with a new indoor climate paradigm which relies on the addition of thermal mass and radiant surfaces.See more
BREEAM, “Outstanding” center focuses on low carbon approaches
The new Student Centre of the University College London is a flagship for sustainable development in the urban environment. UCL’s strategy was to focus on a “passive first” approach to the indoor climate to reduce energy use and thereby carbon emissions.Learn more
State-of-the art campus features intelligent actuators
MECD is Manchester University’s brand-new Engineering Campus. Intelligent actuator technology was key to providing the best indoor climate possible via fresh air ventilation. MotorLink® communication technology was chosen because it ensures seamless integration between the BMS and window automation.Read the case
Intelligent actuator communication in smoke ventilation
Augusta University Cancer Research Center chose WindowMaster actuators and MotorControllers as part of the building’s heat and smoke management strategy. The actuators and controllers are enabled with MotorLink® so that they can communicate directly with the building management systems about their position and status.Read more
