Beijer Electronics has received a strategic order from the National Property Board of Sweden. The Authority, in charge of managing state property, has chosen an automation solution from Beijer Electronics through the building automation integrator Nordomatic to ensure the building management of the National Library of Sweden in Stockholm.
The National Library is responsible for collecting and preserving all Swedish publications and audiovisual material, and for making this part of the cultural heritage available to the public. The new automation solution will manage the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), humidity control, lightning, energy measurement and elevator monitoring of the historic building.
Major growth opportunities
“Building automation is a segment we’re prioritizing, and this order is a strategic milestone,” commented Magnus Buhre, Beijer Electronics’ Manager of Building Automation. “The targeted effort has, in addition to the delivery to the National Library, also resulted in prestigious orders for Sweden's new national stadium Friends Arena, the Vasa Museum and the National Museum.”
Beijer Electronics will deliver both hardware and software for the National Library. The solution includes approx. 1,800 I/O’s, the recently introduced iX HMI solution and PLC systems. These products complement the previously delivered SCADA system. Beijer Electronics was chosen as supplier based on the ability to meet high quality standards combined with the capability to deliver ready-made software applications for HVAC.
HVAC solution provider
Beijer Electronics establishes itself as a solution provider for the property management market with open solutions for HVAC. The company has, in collaboration with building automation integrators, delivered solutions to Scania, Tetra Pak, Alfa Laval and Astra Zeneca. Through efficient building automation solutions, Beijer Electronics delivers up to 30% in energy savings for its customers.
New HMI takes engineers from idea to result faster
Human machine interface technology take a giant leap forward with the launch of Beijer Electronics’ new iX 2.0 HMI software and new generation operator panels. Summed up in the market-driven concept HMI at the speed of thought, the iX HMI solution both speeds up project development and makes the application faster and more efficient to navigate.
The fastest way from idea to application
The iX 2.0 development software minimizes the distance between the HMI idea and the fully deployable, intuitive, application. Smarter engineering tools and an improved ribbon menu set in a familiar Windows® based environment ensure substantial time gains for project developers.
User-friendly and efficient operation
An industrial HMI has never been more intuitive than the new iX HMI solution from Beijer Electronics. Implementing navigation tools used in everyday applications such as mobile devices, iX 2.0 creates new ways to interact with machines using scroll and swipe gestures. Software features such as the unique “Action menu”, which enable a multi-level menu system and fast execution of actions, and the well-known “Roller panel” both help put the most relevant information right where the operator needs it, saving screen space and enabling manual-free operation in the process. With more intuitive applications that help operators make the right decisions, operation becomes safer and productivity increases.
New ways to personalize
Companies are looking for new ways to increase business value and strengthen their brands. Beijer Electronics meets this growing market trend with the launch of the HMI software iX 2.0, offering many ways to personalize the application – even including customizing the system dialogs. A visual expression in line with the machine and company brand help machine builders and others sharpen their competitive edge. The iX software offers full HMI functionality and is ready to use as it is, but also offers the possibility to add, e.g., .NET components and create customized functionality through C# scripting since the software is based on the Microsoft .NET Framework.
Easy distribution of information
Beijer Electronics’ operator panels can share information with each other via panel networks, regardless of size or performance, which makes it easy to share information between users and provides safer control of complex machines also over long distances. The panels can act as OPC UA server and client, enabling distribution of information between the factory floor and business or planning system, and the built-in report generator turns figures into Excel reports for saving or printing directly. As web servers, Beijer Electronics’ panels enable engineers to freely create web pages which operators and supervisors will be able to log in to from, e.g., mobile devices, thus facilitating more efficient operations.
Bugfixing and new features
The new version of Beijer Electronics HMI solution iX V1.31 goes from
strength to strength with a variety of new useful features. All project
engineers are now getting a tool, which is able to design industrial HMI
applications in an efficient and realistic way.
By using the particular system tag, the user configures the build-in front LED after his imagination. The choices are on-line or blink mode, as well as color change for particular system status. Additionally the front LED can be dimmed infinitely, which is essential in all maritime applications.
The new introduced password sequence prior to system menu secures the touch panel for unauthorized system setup changes.
A very powerful feature is the new choice between portrait and landscape projects. The features enable two screen orientations for more flexible HMI applications in all available iX panels.
The project import functionality for existing Beijer Electronics HMI projects developed with Information- and H-Designer, has been improved significantly.
