Building Automation with S7-1200


Ease of handling, endless functions reliably.

The group of companies Cross Kasidiaris SA, certified with ISO9001 and with extensive experience in industrial and marine automation applications designed and built a system using the Siemens House equipment for the complete automation of the new company premises Buildings Selectron SA the group.

With the relatively new technology “smart” electrical system architecture and special lighting which highlights it takes another dimension. The advantages of this technology is energy saving, full adjustment functions without the slightest “slight repair”, handling ease (the system is complex only in the back of not referring to the end user), practically unlimited functions and automation, tremendous reliability. Also a very important factor of the system is the possibility to store lighting scenes / features and their removal by pressing a button or wireless keypad or touch screen.

The system uses the newest member of Siemens Simatic family of the S7-1200. They employed a total of 7 PLC (CPU1212C and CPU1214C) which are connected to a standalone network PROFINET. Each controller serves an area independent and can operate independently of the other equipment. All the automation devices (PLC, monitors, switch, sensors) are powered by uninterruptible power supply system for the smooth operation of the system.

For the control and management system are installed a screen KTP400 a KTP1000 and also there is the possibility of using the WinCC Flexible, which is installed on the central server of the company. There is also the possibility of remote control by phone, internet and SMS.

The system achieves full control of lighting, heating, control electric shutters and awnings, load control and consumption, monitoring of doors and windows as well as monitoring fire through appropriate sensors.

In the implementation phase at this moment is the integration of the surveillance system.
