The new SAUTER ecos504 seamlessly integrates the automatic lighting and sunshade control into the room climate regulation. The energy consumption is therefore reduced considerably while the comfort for the room user is also increased.

In modern buildings, most of the energy is used for cooling. The energy consumption can be drastically reduced through automated sunshade, lighting and room ventilation control with CO2 sensors. Additionally, the new room controller from SAUTER is seamlessly integrated into the building management system and the primary energy preparation system using BACnet/IP.

Flexibility through modularity

The SAUTER ecos504 is a modular room controller, with which remote ecoLink I/O modules can be combined as required. The controller supports up to eight fixed rooms or flexible room segments. EnOcean wireless technology allows SAUTER ecoUnit 1 room operating units with bidirectional communication and LCD to be connected, as well as window contacts, switches and other EnOcean devices from third-party manufacturers.

KNX interface as connector to the electrical equipment system

The direct connection of KNX field devices to the ecos504 significantly expands the selection of room operating units, actuators and sensors that can be used. With open communication in all directions, the HVAC world and the electrical equipment systems combine to create a harmonious overall solution for the room user, the building operator and the investor.
