Next Figure shows the layout of a generic room, with some details of the BEMS design for that room:
- C1: contacts and switches, like valve switch on the radiator, light switch, windows contact;
- C2: temperature sensor
- C3: lamps with installed power
- C4: presence sensor
- Qe-DOKI: EVO Module for room control.
Documentation of the installation¶
This section describes the documentation prepared for the Pilot with the objective of enabling the installer to perform the specific tasks while minimizing the possibility of errors. Moreover, the whole set of documentation detailing drawings, layouts, technical specification of equipment and cabling was produced taking into account that the Pilot installation has been object of a tender to apply the rules of the Genoa Municipality. More in detail, the whole set of documentation includes:
- a list of modules and units to be installed in the Pilot, including the code number of each unit;
- a table which details for every BOX Module of the pilot the pre-setting settled up in the factory, including the DIP switches presets, the IP address, the ID Genoa BOX code;
- a general drawing which summarizes the links between the various modules of the DOKI BEMS control network, with specific details of the type of cable to use for all connections (see next session); Every BOX DOKI has been coupled with a IP address (Board IP) and with the values of DIP Switches 1, 2 and 3 to set up the behavior of the module.
- a wiring diagram for each EVO Module (both for control of rooms/premise and for the smart meters) that shows the connections to be performed and the type of cable to be used for each input or output.
