Building Automation Control Devices and Applications explains how building systems, such as HVAC, lighting, and security systems, can communicate information through a network of intelligent control devices. Emphasis is placed on these control devices and how they work together in common automation scenarios.

Topics covered include:

  • The operation, signal types, and functions of the sensors, actuators, and other control equipment used in automated systems in commercial buildings
  • And much more!

The textbook is organized by building system, and the operation of each system is explained to clarify the function and application of each control device. This system-based foundation is then used to introduce typical interactions between multiple systems within a building.

Further coverage of building automation, focusing on communication networks, is available in Building Automation System Integration with Open Protocols. A CD-ROM is also included with Building Automation Control Devices and Applications and contains activities to supplement the textbook.
