TECHNOLOGY CONCERN ANDRITZ
GRAZ, AUSTRIA

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: ANDRITZ GROUP RELIES ON HYBRID SOLUTION WITH KNX AND ENOCEAN.

The international technology group ANDRITZ, headquartered in Graz, Austria, employs approximately 25,500 people worldwide. The ANDRITZ GROUP is one of the world’s leading suppliers of plants, equipment, and services for hydropower plants, the pulp and paper industry, the metalworking industry, the steel industry, and municipal and industrial solid/liquid separation.
The group’s headquarters in Graz was hybridly equipped with KNX and EnOcean components. The project was supervised by Siblik from Vienna, which was also responsible for the rollout.

 

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

Depending on the required functionality and the local conditions, components such as sensors, actuators and gateways were selected with the more beneficial bus system and intelligently linked via the EIBPORT.

 

WIDE-RANGING FUNCTIONAL PORTFOLIO FOR AN EFFICIENT WORKING ENVIRONMENT.

The system was built on an IP basis. The individual lines are connected by line and IP routers. EIBPORT V3 EnOcean was used to implement efficient and particularly convenient individual room control in the office areas, providing control and automation functions.
Several EIBPORTs are distributed over the various office wings and also serve as IP and EnOcean interfaces. Ninety percent of all functions such as lighting control, shading or room temperature control are controlled via EnOcean components from Eltako and Thermokon. A total of 1,384 KNX and 688 EnOcean components were installed.

 

INDIVIDUAL CONTROL WITH THE EIBPORT.

Values such as the basic setpoint or the operating mode (heating or cooling mode) are specified by the effective building management system. The EIBPORT is responsible for general control and communication with the KNX heating actuators. Via its intuitive visualisation, all relevant functions such as lighting control, shading or room temperature can be individually controlled for each office wing.

 

ANDRITZ’ CONCLUSION.

The extensive automation functions of the EIBPORT guarantee an optimised working environment and lower energy consumption without neglecting the individual wishes of the users.
