Optergy is excited to announce that Proton has been nominated as a finalist in the category of product of the year at the AIRAH Awards 2017, the Australian HVAC&R industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony.
Small buildings have small budgets, typically making it cost prohibitive to install automation or energy management. These small buildings (B and C grade) are often left with disparate stand-alone controls including wall controller interfaces to VRF and VRV systems, timers for lighting, timers for exhaust fans and no utilities monitoring. Small buildings are often unmanaged with no remote visibility, poor comfort conditions and high energy costs.
Australia has a regulatory environment that drives building performance due to its high cost of energy. This started initially with NABERS targeting large buildings, but over the past 10 years this approach has filtered down to buildings as small as 1,000 square meters. Optergy recognized these trends and built Proton to meet the local demand conditions but also the developing global need for a cost-effective solution for small buildings.
Proton was designed and develop as an integrated solution for building automation and energy management. It was built to be a cost-effective solution for the smallest of buildings with all the features you would expect from a large-scale automation and energy management system.
Optergy is the first to take a unified approach and combine both building automation and energy management in a building controller. Proton can be used in new construction, pre-loved buildings and even add functionality to an existing building automation system. Proton provides visibility and control so that even the smallest building can be automated and the energy managed easily, leaving building operators to focus on managing the needs of their business.
Proton enables small buildings to have better comfort conditions and perform to a higher standard helping building owners reduce operating expenses, attract premium tenants, investors and ultimately increase asset value.
