ABB Delivers Building Control For Beijing Airport

ABB has provided intelligent controls for the Terminal 3 building at China's Beijing Capital International Airport. The airport building covers more than one million square metres and is home to several major international airlines, 64 restaurants, 84 shops and other services such as banks, business centres and duty-free outlets. Terminal 3 is using ABB's I-bus KNX intelligent building control technology to control lighting, heating and air conditioning throughout the building.

Functions can be controlled either locally or via a centralised automation system, which includes PC operation and visualisation options to enable operators to easily make any adjustments. The terminal has been designed as a sustainable airport, incorporating a range of environmental design concepts. The airport's lighting controls include load current detection, emergency lighting and lighting scenes, with up to eight different light settings for atmospheric or practical requirements.

The airport has also been equipped with motion-detection controls in all rest rooms to control lighting levels and help maximise energy efficiency. To help further reduce energy consumption and operating costs, ABB's system also features Daylight Dependent Switching technology. Light sensors mounted to the exterior of the building communicate with the system to ensure optimum use is made of natural daylight throughout the terminal, which features glass walls and skylight windows.
