Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, 2020
The congress and culture center is equipped with an auditorium, two conference halls, three seminar halls, a multipurpose hall, a hotel, three cafeterias, a shop, a museum and a spa area. Kayseri is a historical city in the center of Turkey holding one of Anatolia’s most magnificent attractions: the Erciyes mountain.
One of the biggest LOYTEC projects in Turkey
The building consists of lots of different areas with different requirements for the primary control systems. As a result, there was a need to integrate and control air handling units, pumps, heat recovery devices, rooftop units, chiller groups and boilers. Boilers, pumps, air handling units and chillers were integrated via BACnet, whilst the rooftop units and the heat recovery devices were integrated via Modbus.
Integration of 134 Primary Systems
Nine main control cabinets with LOYTEC L-INX Automation Servers, L-IOB I/O Controllers and L-IOB I/O Modules inside control all primary systems. Termmarket, LOYTEC Competence Center in Turkey, built the control cabinets and the power panels. Termmarket also assembled field devices like pressure sensors, flow sensors, valves, motors and similar products. The project was realized within eight weeks and is based on LOYTEC's building automation library. In total 134 primary systems like VSDs by Danfoss, chiller units by York, rooftop units by Lennox, booster pumps by Grundfos and a water treatment system by Aquamatch with more than 8500 data points have been successfully integrated.
Despite the complexity of the project, Termmarket completed the integration of the primary systems with ease. The L-STUDIO 3.0 tool platform and the building automation library of LOYTEC made it possible to finish the project in time.
