Key features of NV Embedded®
Access indoor climate data through the cloud or BMS to improve automation and performance.
This allows the system to account for the occupation, security, and time of day, ensuring that the windows only open when it makes sense.
Trickle ventilation is a supplement to pulse ventilation which allows for a more nuanced approach to air change that also reduces drafts.
The built-in controller coordinates venetian blinds and awnings to maintain a cool, comfortable indoor climate.
For buildings that need a holistic solution to the management of the indoor climate.
Integrated Smoke Ventilation
Many buildings are subject to statutory requirements for the opening of windows in the event of fire. NV Embedded® can incorporate smoke ventilation control with natural ventilation control, which means that the same equipment could be used for both functions in the case of a tested solution.
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
