Buildings are subjected to changeable and at times, extreme weather conditions. Providing owners with the satisfactory data that enables them to control and monitor their building, whilst at the same time providing a suitable working environment for those within, becomes a difficult requirement to fulfill.
Founded in 1981, ALERTON is a pioneer and an industry leader in providing building management solutions for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment for all types and sizes of buildings. ALERTON can simplify building management by integrating fire, life safety, lighting, access management and other building systems. ALERTON products are found in thousands of structures, including high-rise office buildings, government facilities, university campuses, airports, hotels, school districts and hospitals around the world.
In 1996, ALERTON advanced the industry with its introduction of Alerton BACtalk, the first product line based on BACnet(R), the building industry's standard for open system interoperability. BACtalk is BACnet implemented at all system levels. Such a total BACnet-based system gives end users the ultimate flexibility to integrate other BACnet-based systems and components.
From virtually anywhere in the world, you can monitor and control your buildings with our easy-to-use graphical software. Use three dimensional animation and full-colour graphics to access real-time data and energy management features. As-built drawings, floor plans and specific graphics of HVAC equipment can be customized for each site. The flexibility of BACnet allows connection to local area networks and the Internet.
Intelligent BACnet programmable controllers perform global control strategies on a peer-to-peer basis for an entire facility or multiple sites. These devices integrate seamlessly with third-party building systems such as fire alarm, access management and lighting. Alertons VLX and other high-performance controllers are designed specifically for larger, more complex point applications central plants, large air handling units and other critical systems. Modular global controllers like the BCM drive Alertons flexible approach to systems integration. These controllers economically support BACnet control networks today and accommodate tomorrows growth.
ALERTON offers an entire family of intelligent, native BACnet logic controllers. Each controller is programmable to support a range of applications, from complex air handling units to terminal unit devices such as VAV boxes, heat pumps and air conditioning units. All of our BACnet controllers use Alertons intuitive, graphical DDC programming language, VisualLogic.
Unique sensors like ALERTONs Microset can serve as both tenant control centers and field service tools. The system also supports traditional sensors and actuators used in building automation
ALERTONs recent major release of its flagship front-end software for building automation systems and energy management, Alerton Building Suite 3. Combining the power of Envision for BACtalk(R) and WEBtalk(TM), ALERTON Building Suite 3 provides a comprehensive building management solution that is scalable to any application. Envision for BACtalk(R) is installed on the server. The server and client share data with one another via a BACnet over IP or BACnet over Ethernet WAN. WEBtalk(TM) enables facilities managers or other authorized persons to monitor and modify items in Envision for BACtalk(R) via a web client without having to install any additional software.
