Intelligent control + Cost-effective planning
Modular SHEV system for cutting-edge building architecture.
With AdComNet (Advanced Communication Network), you implement comfort and safety in complex large-scale projects. It allows decentralised smoke exhaust controllers to be combined into a single system. Flexible and cost-effective bus communication controls all drives in this process. With the AdComNet solution from D+H, you have the first VdS-certified SHEV bus system on the market. This allows you to fulfil all current national and international fire safety directives. At the same time, this intelligent solution saves you energy and money with shorter cable routes and smaller cable cross-sections.
A true plus thanks to bus communication
With the best connections
Comfortable without fail: AdComNet at the DNB Bank headquarters
The DNB Bank bundles 20 of its locations at the headquarters in Oslo. The 17-storey building features extravagant architecture. The building's modular pixel structure is particularly well suited for the modular system architecture of the AdComNet solution from D+H.
AdComNet and AdComBus
State-of-the-art bus communication – explained in layman's terms.
The term "bus" refers to a system for data transfer between several nodes over a shared transfer path. AdComNet (ACN) is an especially safe and reliable bus communication network developed by D+H which combines standard smoke extraction controllers into a single comprehensive system. The Advanced Communication Network links control panels that are now conventional to enable complex scenarios for opening and closing windows or other ventilation equipment, depending on how the room is being used. This not only increases safety, but also networked communication, which reduces the costs.
AdComBus (ACB) now makes the communication network even smarter. Thanks to the newest D+H solution with bidirectional, digital communication control panels, from now on any drive, even one within a group, can be controlled individually and with perfect positioning. Previously, the drives always operated as a group, but now they can function autonomously. The Advanced Communication Bus allows drives to send status reports, such as completion or possible execution problems, back to the control panel and improve communication in the entire system.
ACB – the new alphabet
When windows learn to speak
The newly-developed Advanced Communication Bus (ACB) from D+H has revolutionised communication between window control systems and drives. Especially during major projects, building operators are often faced with the question, ""Are all of my connections working? And if not, where is the problem?"" ACB allows the drives to communicate with the control systems and gives them feedback about their opening widths and conditions. But this is just one major advantage of the innovative bus technology. It also significantly reduces wiring effort, reducing installation effort and costs, and makes it possible to specify control of the drives down to the millimetre. We discussed the new solution with Christian Kluge, Director of Development at D+H Mechatronic AG, and Steffen Lanfersiek, Team Lead for Product Management at D+H Mechatronic AG.
