After the launch of the PXC4 and PXC5 controllers for the optimised control of small and medium-sized buildings, Siemens has added the PXC7 to its Desigo portfolio to offer even more flexibility to building automation practitioners. This new addition allows professionals to program heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications for larger buildings. Thanks to its simplified integration capabilities, the Desigo PXC7 controller supports system integrators in providing a complete automation solution.
The controller is natively equipped with cloud connectivity so users can execute maintenance tasks remotely, allowing for faster reaction and saving travel time and costs, as well as additional services over the building lifecycle. Desigo PXC7 brings the new standard communication protocol BACnet Secure Connect to the new line of PXC controllers, a crucial requirement to secure connected building automation systems and defend them against cyber attacks.
The combination of compact hardware with the intuitive engineering software helps project managers to gain efficiency over the whole lifecycle, from engineering to operation. The Desigo engineering framework provides pre-configured libraries together with consistent and harmonised workflows to save training time and speed up project completion.
