EasyLogic building management system

March 2024 Facilities & Building Management

Schneider Electric has unveiled its EasyLogic Building Management System (BMS) range, designed for basic building architectures. Mark Freeman, Offer Manager Digital Building for Anglophone Africa at Schneider Electric, explains that EasyLogic is a complete and cost-effective range of field controllers and sensors that are both easy to install and scalable.

“The EasyLogic brand brings to market a very cost-effective solution that still delivers the reliability and robustness that the Schneider Electric brand is known for. While not offering the advanced capabilities of our premium range, the EasyLogic product still delivers a robust BMS solution,” says Freeman.

The EasyLogic range is designed for basic heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) applications and includes an integrated network of controllers, providing improved installation efficiency and energy use such as plant room and terminal units. This includes controllers for fan coil (FCU), Variable Air Volume (VAV), and expansion modules. Also, the EasyLogic range is compatible with BACnet MS/TP for network communications and supports fundamental HVAC applications.

Gaining traction

“Since its soft launch in the local, East, and West African markets last year, the EasyLogic BMS range has been steadily gaining traction in the market, especially for cost-sensitive projects that require more affordable solutions,” says Freeman.

“While smart building technology has seen a shift towards the integration of digital building management systems, not all projects have sufficiently large budgets for state-of-art solutions. With the EasyLogic brand, we are targeting end users who require a more affordable alternative, but still want to operate and control their buildings digitally.”

He notes that another major benefit of using the EasyLogic range is that the solution can be tailored to practically any application and any size building and – once installed – will enable significant energy savings that will result in a good return on investment (ROI).

“What is more, the product comes with a hard-wired serial bus, so if a building has existing cabling and an outdated BMS that is no longer functional, the controller can simply be changed out with an EasyLogic unit, as long as there is MS/TP network in place, Additionally, it comes with affordable temperature sensors that can monitor and control the temperature in a building at a very cost-effective rate,” says Freeman.
