    Length: 3 days
    CEU Credits: 2.1
    Course Hours: 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

    Description:

    This real-world-based course will give you a broad introduction to the specific issues involved with Building Automation Systems (BAS). You will explore the processes that occur at every level in the air conditioning industry, including digital controls. Learn about sensing and measurement, actuation, analog output devices, and relays. Computer interfaces are discussed including web interfaces. Your survey of the world of BAS includes: Future of BAS, Digital Direct Control (DDC) Basics, Field Devices, the Human Machine Interface (HMI), BAS Design and Specification, Energy Conservation Control Strategies, and System Maintenance.

    This course will enable you to identify and describe the major components in a BAS along with the basic mechanical components and controls in an HVAC control system. You will be able to describe and explain the basic functions of DDC systems and HMI basics, reference codes and standards applicable to BAS, and justify control components for project work. This course will help you explain BAS in non-ATC systems (lighting, fire, security, etc.), the process of implementing BAS, and Energy Conservation Control Strategies. You will also learn where to look for additional resources.
