What is a Building Automation System (BAS)?Most simply put, a BAS is a network that connects and controls all of your facility's utilities, such as mechanical and electrical systems as well as heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems (HVAC). With industrial facilities, we mainly focus on critical HVAC applications - meaning that we regulate the conditions for controlled/validated environments such as laboratories and data centers. Regulating conditions in these types of spaces is critical to the functionality of our customers' facilities and overall products (or purpose). Thermo Systems' solution is specifically industrial PLC/SCADA-based.
Thermo Systems can design, build, install, modify, support, and retrofit BAS systems. When Thermo is included in the initial design of a building or space, we use our expertise to find the best solution with open controls products and name-brand controls equipment to meet all of the requirements of your project and facility. After implementation, we are there to help support our customers with troubleshooting, new additions, changes, and modifications to the systems. And when a system is nearing the end of its life, Thermo Systems can retrofit the systems and extend its run for years to come.

Why might you need a BAS?
• You have critical materials within your facility that you need to maintain in a regulated environment. Building automation systems take the guesswork out of the design and show you in real time if you are meeting space environment requirements and/or energy savings goals.
• You would like to evaluate and lower your energy usage through monitoring and controlling consumption. Investing in a good BAS usually results in a very fast return on investment and long term energy savings, which means lower costs to run your facility.
• You need to know immediately when your building environment becomes unsafe for your product or people. Safety is a top priority for our customers, and a BAS can alert operations staff when there are major issues.
• You simply want to make your facility more comfortable, productive, and environmentally friendly.
