Three innovations, one theme - D+H is all the rage

BAU 2017, one of the world's leading trade fairs, attracted over 2,000 exhibitors and 250,000 visitors to Munich this year. Spread over 17 halls, everything revolved around the main themes of the exhibition: "Intelligent façades", "Digital design, construction and management", "Smart buildings" and "Living and building 2020". The fair made one thing perfectly clear: Digitalisation is currently dominating the construction industry. And this is exactly the trend that we are pushing forward. We presented our three innovations at BAU to our trade audience.

One of these presentations gave visitors to our booth an introduction to what is likely the quietest way to automatically open windows. Our new chain drive: the CDC-0252. After the extremely successful market launch last year, the silent star received lots of attention. The CDC works best in combination with our two digital control panels for smoke extraction and natural ventilation. The integration of our new Advanced Communication Bus (ACB) creates bidirectional communication between the control panel and the drive. This means that the control panel also receives information about the position and status of the windows. The technology also enables drive control with perfect positioning.

Digital, modular, and almost cable free

Visitors made their own impression of our fully modular digital SHEV control panel on our booth. They were able to configure the module's ACB-capable smoke vent control panel themselves, place the components on a top-hat rail using a plug and play system and control the CDC-0252 accordingly. In this way, our guests got to know the intelligent and low-wire plug system on rails with all functionality. The advantage of the modular design is that it ensures significantly less wiring and a better power supply.
