Membangun Building Management Systems / Environmental Management Systems

Building Management Systems / Environmental Management Systems A Building Management System (BMS) or a (more recent terminology) Environmental Monitoring Systems (EMS) is a computer-based control system installed in buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems, security systems and many more. A BMS or EMS consists of software and hardware; the software program, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary, using such protocols as C-Bus, Profibus, and so on. Vendors are also producing BMSs that integrate using Internet protocols and open standards such as, BACnet, LonWorks and Modbus. Building Management Systems are most commonly implemented in large projects with extensive mechanical, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems. Systems linked to a BMS typically represent 40% of a building's energy usage; if lighting is included, this number approaches to 70%. BM
