The DESIGO building automation and control system: the powerful, open system
DESIGO is a new and up-to-date family of freely programmable management and automation stations for the full spectrum of today's building services applications. With system functions such as alarm management, time scheduling, and trend logging, combined with sophisticated control functions, DESIGO is a highly versatile asset in a building. Innovative Web technology, open databases and open communications make DESIGO a financially wise investment in the future.
The scalable system: for all projects from small to large
With its graded range of automation stations, room controllers and operator units, DESIGO is ideally suited to projects of all sizes and for all types of building. A flat system topology permits low-cost entry with small systems which can be extended and expanded when required.

Open to integration
DESIGO is consistent in its support of open communications, making it easy to connect a wide variety of building services equipment on the basis of standard open data interfaces: • BACnet for the automation level and management level network • LON and KNX (EIB) for the networking of the room automation system and distributed secondary processes • M bus, Modbus, OPC and other interfaces for universal connection of third-party devices and systems

Easy to operate
DESIGO INSIGHT uses life-like graphics to portray complex issues simply. Typical aspects of air conditioning, such as psychrometric charts and heating curves, or control routines such as load shedding and mains recovery are illustrated with clarity. The interfaces, designed in accordance with ergonomic principles, permit optimum use of the system and can be mastered quickly by operators. Access is also available via the intranet and Internet.

Long-term investment protection and economy at every stage
DESIGO places emphasis on long-term investment protection by focusing consistently on compatibility. DESIGO integrates today's automation systems seamlessly into tomorrow's world. Changes in use, system expansion and retrofit projects can all be handled in gradual stages.

The DESIGO system topology
The DESIGO system can be divided into three levels: the management level, the automation level and the field level. By virtue of distributed intelligence, each of these levels operates both autonomously and in a network. The principal DESIGO system components:
• DESIGO INSIGHT, the management station, for higher-level operation and monitoring, graphics-based display of the process, automatic alarm distribution and a wide range of different data analysis options. • DESIGO PX, the automation system for control, operation and monitoring of the primary plant. By use of PX-WEB, the automation system can be operated via a Web client. • The I/O modules, which provide the interface to the devices at the field level, the sensors and actuators. • DESIGO RX, the room automation system, for control of comfort conditions in individual rooms, and for operation of lighting and blinds. • DESIGO OPEN, for the integration of a wide variety of plant at all levels of the system.

priority and/or plant type. via SMS and e-mail. Alarm routing Alarm messages on the PXM20 operator unit and the DESIGO INSIGHT management station 8 . DESIGO uses the BACnet alarm functions. Operators are alerted to incoming and pending alarms by means of pop-up windows and audible and visual signals. it is automatically detected. Informative alarm messages are also transmitted to remote devices such as mobile phones. printers or PCs and Web browsers. and supports the following three types of alarm with up to 256 alarm priority levels: • Simple alarm (for alarms not requiring user interaction) • Basic alarms (for alarms requiring acknowledgment) • Extended alarms (alarms requiring acknowledgement and reset) Alarm messages When an alarm occurs. Clear alarm lists provide a view of all pending and time-stamped alarms at a glance. display and handling) must be simple.Alarm management One of the most important features of a building automation and control system is the ability to generate alarms automatically in response to faults which may occur in the HVAC and other plant. using an outstandingly powerful alarm routing system at the management station. The management of alarms (generation. Users are supported in their work by various overview options which help ensure a fast and correct response even in critical alarm situations. efficient and consistent at all levels of the system. registered and transferred to operator units such as PXM20 or PX-WEB. fax machines. This ensures the uninterrupted routing of alarms. or to the DESIGO INSIGHT management station. Alarms are transferred on the basis of time. or in the automation system itself. and permit straightforward processing. whether or not there is an operator sitting at the management station.

the BACnet scheduler programs can be operated system-wide from the user-friendly operator units PXM20 and PX-WEB and from the DESIGO INSIGHT management station. these powerful functions make programming easy. Scheduler program on PXM20 operator unit and DESIGO INSIGHT management station For safety reasons. using the BACnet objects "Schedule" and "Calendar". and holidays. for flexible operation of the building. Scheduler programs ensure that the heating and lighting are switched off automatically at the end of the working day. 9 . and that the plant is not kept running for longer than necessary. so that in the event of a network or PC failure. schedules and calendars are stored in the automation station. The plant in the building is operated on the basis of business and working hours. Saving energy and increasing the service life of plant The ideal scheduler programs help save energy and increase the service life of the plant. that the temperature in the building is reduced at night. Time-switching operations in the DESIGO building automation and control system are implemented in accordance with the BACnet standard. They can also be used to switch off the air conditioning in certain rooms during holidays. By use of standard BACnet functions. the automation level can continue to operate autonomously. This is another area where DESIGO excels with its straightforward and exceptionally user-friendly operation.Scheduler/Calendar One of the basic functions of a building automation and control system is time control of procedures and processes. From simple 7-day schedules to recurring exceptions.

Certain users may be able to read a value but not modify it.Access rights Access rights can be used to filter information from the plant and system based on the individual requirements of a user. A distinction can also be made between read access and write access. Read and write access rights can be defined in detail. The resident engineer or the service engineers. enabling them both to read and to modify values. Freely-definable access rights Only authorized personnel are granted access to the system via the operator units. The following classes of access are supported in the DESIGO system: • • • • • • • Internal Extended service Basic service Administration Extended operation Standard operation Basic operation Users supported systemwide In addition to the above. 10 . right down to individual information points. The tailoring of the environment to each user ensures clear areas of responsibility. it is possible to enable or disable the use of the various applications. for example. access to individual graphics pages and access to entire sites from the management station for specific user groups. When a user enters a user name and password. only have access to the information they strictly need. the system verifies the associated access rights and enables access to the relevant plant. so simplifying cooperation between the various user groups. while other users may have extended access rights.
