Trane, provider of indoor comfort solutions and services, recently introduced BAS R’newal, a program intended to help building owners update existing building control systems and gain access to new technologies that improve overall building performance and operating efficiency.
BAS R’newal provides a plan to improve the functionality and reliability of a system and is said to be more cost-effective than a comprehensive system replacement.
Trane helps customers assess and optimize their existing system, prioritize their control needs, and identify the most effective way to upgrade their building automation system (BAS) to meet current and future needs.
“Upgrading the BAS enables facility managers to take advantage of new technologies, like open systems with mobile access, wireless communication, and Web-enabled remote access,” Eugene Shedivy, building controls leader for Trane, said. “These advanced technologies are capable of capturing more building data, offering valuable insights for continuous improvements to help run the building better. As a result of the BAS R’newal program, customers receive reports summarizing how BAS R’newal is impacting their buildings and businesses.”
Trane has created a portfolio of Tracer communication bridges to help customers upgrade existing infrastructure. Tracer controls convert proprietary protocols to open, standard protocols, enabling customers to integrate older equipment with new technologies. Tracer controls are pre-engineered, factory-tested, and designed to work together, even with legacy products.
Tracer building management systems can integrate several dashboards into one BAS. Many Tracer controls enable remote system access via any Internet-enabled device.
The BAS R’newal program includes ongoing service and support from Trane. Trane works with customers to maintain their system and identify additional cost-saving opportunities.
