Thanks to its modular setup, the Warema BAline control system offers flexible automation that fulfils all modern building requirements. Free programming capability and modularity ensure that the system is ready for the future. This cuts operating and production costs, increases the value of buildings, and allows state-of-the-art technologies such as wind assessments, annual shading and slat tracking to be implemented.
Modern control systems connect and regulate all building functions to boost energy efficiency, comfort, flexibility and safety. Warema BAline is a modular control system that guarantees maximum flexibility and individual adaptation despite automation and even enables wind assessments for sun protection.
Modular control systems allow the various functional areas in a building – sun shading, heating/cooling/air conditioning, daylight/artificial light, security systems – to be combined into room automation units in a network on the basis of a single device family. Flexible programming means that changes in usage and retrofitting require minimal effort. This makes Warema's BAline a robust module for variable and future-oriented usage concepts in construction projects.
Warema BAline facilitates single room and zone solutions in which different devices or subsystems are combined to form a tailor-made module set. The result is an easily adaptable room automation solution for individual usage concepts and functional requirements. Energy efficiency and thermal and visual comfort can be brought together in harmony.
Wind assessment – annual shading – slat tracking
One of the particular advantages of BAline is that the system is suitable for wind assessments. All the control system requires is a single measuring point on the facade that provides information on brightness, precipitation, outside temperature, wind speed and wind direction. In the system's 'nerve centre', the measuring values from the wind assessment reports are converted into move commands for the sun shading system.
Annual shading for optimum use of daylight and slat tracking on the sun shading system are indispensable for energy efficiency. Both features can be easily implemented with Warema BAline. For annual shading, Warema calculates and evaluates the changing shade pattern for the building according to the season and the position of the sun, taking into account surrounding buildings. Each room can be designed as a shading zone, based not just on individual reference points, but also on the measuring values of the weather unit and the calculated incidence of light. The sun shading system behaves as if a sun sensor were fixed to each sun shading product; the sun sensor reacts when direct sunlight hits the window. In fact, only one sensor is required on the roof.
Slat tracking of external venetian blinds depends on the position of the sun and is carried out with angular accuracy. This ensures the best possible use of daylight with optimum glare and heat protection, allowing large amounts of daylight into the room, but no direct sunlight. If required, the sun shading elements can also be controlled manually via push buttons.
