The first UK installation of Ciat’s M2M air-conditioning control and monitoring system is for a leading horticultural specialist. The system is providing continuous remote monitoring of a 2.1 MW water-to-water heat-pump plant, based on four Dynaciat Power LG1800v units.

The heat pumps provide a stable indoor environment to ensure growth conditions for produce are maintained at the optimum level. The M2M system provides intelligent monitoring of conditions and heat-pump performance to ensure pre-set conditions are constantly met.

M2M gives remote access to equipment from a PC, tablet or smartphone. It connects to a cloud-based monitoring system that provides access to all equipment control parameters, performance data and real-time events in progress.

It can be used with Ciat chillers, heat pumps, rooftop systems and air-handling units, and is suitable for retrofit on existing plant.

In the event of an alarm, M2M automatically sends an email or text alert to the system administrator and Ciat.
