EMeister Performance Requirements and Building Survey Form
A large commercial building -- typically larger than 200,000 square feet -- with a central HVAC system, direct digital control (DDC) to the zone level, unoccupied hours with temperature flexibility, variable air volume (VAV) air distribution, and a modern building automation system (BAS).
DDC enables EMeister to control zone temperatures. To perform effectively in large buildings with central HVAC systems, EMeister needs to control at least 20-30% of the conditioned space through DDC.
Unoccupied hour temperature flexibility, for example, office buildings, public buildings, or shopping malls with unoccupied hours. Mixed use buildings or campuses are also good candidates, provided again that 20-30% of the total building space has unoccupied hours, DDC to the zone level, and some occupied hour flexibility, for example, a comfort range of 71-74F.
VAV flexibility and efficiency complement a precooling strategy; constant air volume does not.
Modern BAS for ease of communication and programming. The system should accommodate a Niagara JACE interface directly or through the BACnet protocol.
