Safe and Energy Efficient Control of HVAC Systems
With its measurement and control technology for swimming pools, Autech Tesla, a company from Franconia, ensures pure swimming enjoyment. Controlling water treatment, heating, ventilation and sauna heaters is a challenging task. So Autech Tesla relies on proven, reliable I/O components from WAGO for its control systems.
A large pool for athletes, a small one for casual swimmers and perhaps a stuffy sauna in the basement too – German swimming complexes in the 70s and 80s didn’t offer much more than that. Today’s facilities are nothing like that: spacious sauna environments, outdoor pools heated nearly bath water temperatures and comfortable quiet zones that invite patrons to take a break from everyday life.
The expectations of pool visitors have increased over the past decades, and the behind-the-scenes technology has had to evolve to satisfy these higher demands. These concern patron comfort, but also issues of cost-effectiveness and safety. For example, regarding resource efficiency: Whereas earlier, the circulation pump in the outdoor pool ran all season at its highest speed, it is now usually throttled down at night, or when not many people are using the pool. This simple change reduces the electricity consumption by about twenty percent.
