Developing Smart Buildings with WAGO

A smart building must have an explicit added value for the user.

What is a Smart Building?

A “smart building” describes the automation and central operation of technical equipment in commercial buildings, like office buildings, airports, shopping malls, or manufacturing facilities. Both security and optimized energy efficiency are fundamental issues that smart buildings address. Current projects demonstrate that automation can reduce the energy consumption of an office building by up to one third.

What Does Smart Building Mean for WAGO?

The implementation of a smart building is demanding because it requires new methods and technologies, innovative networking and a modernized way of working together. In automation, the best solution is the one that is open and flexible. In planning and construction, communication is the alpha and omega. WAGO is an established partner ready to guide you through the world of digitization so that your building adapts to your needs – not the other way around.

Highest Level of Security for Computer Centers Thanks to Cloud-Based Power Data Analysis

If hackers or a technical malfunction paralyze the servers of a corporation, the failures can lead to millions in damage. One company, Correct Power Institute, has developed a method for monitoring computer centers that quickly traces faults in the power supply and thus ensures high availability of the IT systems. The approach: Controllers from WAGO detect all electrical current and environmental data and use the cloud for analysis. The hardened Linux® operating system in the controllers and Correct Power’s sophisticated security architecture ensure the highest level of data security.

Emergency Lighting: Safe in Case of Emergency

If the power fails and the light goes out in your home, this may be very inconvenient, but it does not necessarily create a significant security risk. The situation is markedly different in a shopping center, in a cinema, at the airport or in a production facility – wherever large groups meet, a sudden lighting failure can quickly lead to critical situations. Even more dangerous is when there is a real emergency occurring at the same time, such as a fire or heavy smoke. In such cases, lighting must be used to ensure that all the people inside the building can find the quickest way out.

Redundancja aplikacyjna systemu sterowania WAGO (ACR)

Statki bez załogi? Bez magii związanej z żeglowaniem po morzach i oceanach? To całkiem możliwe. Trend zwany „autonomous ships“ jest coraz bardziej realny. Jednak droga od maszynowni, która może dziś pracować bez ingerencji człowieka przez maksymalnie 24 godziny, do autonomicznego statku, mogącego samodzielnie płynąć nawet sześć tygodni, jest jeszcze bardzo długa. Ale koncepcja redundantnego sterowania WAGO przybliża tę perspektywę – i oferuje rozwiązanie, pozwalające zrekompensować pojawiające się awarie systemu automatyki i uniknąć przerw w działaniu urządzeń technicznych.

Zero Emissions, Doubly Safeguarded

Supported by the Arctic University of Norway in Narvik (UiT) and funded by the Norwegian government, the shipbuilders at Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted (GMV) have developed an energy management system (EMS) for a zero-emission ship with an all-electric drive. This visionary project was realized with the help of WAGO, which contributed to the central automation.
