US based building automation service provider, 75F has now launched its business operations in India. Shankar Annaswamy, ex- MD, IBM India inaugurated the India Commercial & R&D Center yesterday. Along with it, 75F has also launched the ‘Dynamic Airflow Balancing’ technology to the Indian market.
Indian natives Deepinder Singh and Pankaj Chawla founded 75F in 2012 in US. Taco Bell, Yoga Fit, Magnet 360, Rockler and many more are in the clients list of 75F. Till now, 75F claimed to have created hundreds of energy-efficient, comfortable buildings.
75F is headquartered in Minneapolis, USA. It creates solutions that use Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing to predict building needs and manage them proactively. The solutions make spaces more comfortable, energy efficient, automated and smart. Internet-connected devices sense, analyse and control the behaviour of the building to achieve consistent temperature, airflow and lighting on a zone or room by room basis.75F saves up to 70% in energy usage, is easy to install and decreases carbon footprint.
CEO and Founder of 75F, Deepinder Singh said, “It is important to note that every building is a dynamic entity and hence the building intelligence system installed should be dynamic as well. We are excited to bring to India our state-of-the-art solutions that leverage the latest in technology and IoT, understand your building’s ever changing needs, and proactively cater to them to ensure that the occupants are comfortable”.
75F has also unveiled its innovative approach to HVAC zone controls called Dynamic Airflow Balancing technology. Wireless Zone Controllers sense and collect hundreds of data points from the room every minute and send the data to the Central Control Unit & from there to the servers in the Cloud. Each night cloud computing algorithms analyse thousands of data points, including the weather forecast & daily usage patterns that allow the system to predict future conditions. Post which, a new set of instructions are sent to the Central Control Unit and the motorised dampers are modulated a few degrees at a time to achieve the perfect balance. The system also factors in real-time events, such as room occupancy, the position of the sun and weather patterns to make continuous adjustments to the plan as needed.
Pankaj Chawla, CTO of 75F said on the new technology, “We believe in the promise of IoT to improve our lives by designing systems that work so well, you forget they are there. Currently, we are focused on one of the most serious problems in commercial buildings – HVAC – because it represents the largest single cost of operating a building. Beyond HVAC, there is a need to provide Building Automation Systems (BAS) to commercial buildings that are easy to install, affordable and effective. We look to bring the further benefits of BAS to improve energy usage, lighting, security and more.
