An Eagle’s eye view to Building Management System ( BMS )                           Building Management System ( BMS ), also known as Integrated Building Management Systems (IBMS), Building automation system (BAS), Building Management and Control System (BMCS), is a computer-based control system installed in buildings that monitors and controls the building's mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems, and security systems. More specifically, they link the functionality of individual pieces of building equipment so that they operate as one complete integrated system. Building management systems are most commonly implemented in large projects with extensive mechanical, HVAC, and electrical systems. Systems linked to a BMS typically represent 50% of a building's energy usage, if lighting is included; this number approaches up to 70%. BMS systems, sometimes include access control or other security systems such a

P rogramming L ogic C ontrol                  ·        What is a PLC? A PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is an assembly of solid state digital logic elements designed to make logical decisions as per the program written on it, which would provide desired outputs. The PLC is designed to perform logic functions previously accomplished by electromechanical relays, Timers and Counters. Also, PLC packs millions of such logic functions on one chip, which is the advantage it has over its predecessors.                ·         Role of PLC The PLC is the part of the Control System that directly controls the application process. According to the program stored in its memory, the PLC accepts data from the input devices connected to it, and uses this data to monitor the controlled system. When the program calls for some action to take place, the PLC sends data to the output devices connected to it, to cause that action to take place.  The PLC may be used to control a simpl
