亚博体育下注The phrase “control management system” has different meanings to different industries. In the building automation world, it’s synonymous with building control system, building automation system (BAS), or building management system (BMS).

Niagara® is a software platform that utilizes an HTML framework to manage and control various systems and devices across a large number of manufacturers and communication protocols. KMC offers the KMC Converge™ Niagara application, as well as a variety of Tridium® JACE models and supporting applications to ensure that adding to a Niagara installation with KMC will be a fast, seamless experience.
Building control programming or configuration as performed by a system integrator can be done through line coding or block programming. Line coding has long been the industry standard, but can be difficult and time-consuming to learn, and is prone to human error. Block programming is comparatively easy to learn and provides a stronger safety net against human error, making it a better option for less experienced programmers.
In addition to line programming, KMC Controls offers block programming via the Control Basic Block editor, which provides a simple drag-and-drop interface to program BACnet® Controllers and is supported by control software including KMC Connect, KMC TotalControlTM and Niagara. Plus, the block programming can be converted to line code if necessary, though not the other way around. To learn more, check out our block programming blog post.
At KMC Controls, our suite of building control software solutions is designed to be scalable to suit any size building and control network, and flexible, meeting virtually every possible combination of system protocol and user preference.
