Century Air Handling Units (AHUs) located on each floor are controlled by ASIC/2-7040 controllers. Control includes variable frequency drives for supply and return fans, enthalpy control for the mixing dampers, modulating valves for the heating and cooling coils, and the steam humidifier. More than 650 ASIC/1 terminal unit controllers maintain comfort in tenant spaces while constantly communicating with their respective AHU’s.
There are two Century absorption chillers rated at 400RT each, and an ice-on-coil Ice Storage System utilizing a three-stage Century screw compressor of 80RT. These systems incorporate factory-fitted ASIC/2-7040 controllers and DAK-002 Display and Keypads. The Century cooling towers on the penthouse level of each building are also controlled by ASIC/2-7040 Controllers.
Each floor electrical room is provided with an ASIC/2 Controller responsible for providing control of electrical supply to the floor. The controller also provides local metering of energy and power at each floor. Floor occupancy is recorded at the ASIC/2 Controller.
This innovative building uses ground source heat pumps and a heat reclaim system to provide a comfortable environment at the highest possible efficiency. The system is fully controlled and monitored by an ASI Control system on each heat pump. The central plant is controlled based on the conditions in the zones. An InTouch GUI provides full information for each heat pump including extensive logging of energy usage and Coefficient of Performance for individual heat pumps and the entire system. NCS Corporation installed the energy management and control system.

Hoag Hospital is one of the premier hospitals in Southern California. Flaring off the natural gas on site made a conspicuous landmark for travelers on the Pacific Coast Highway. After twenty years service the original mechanical systems and the control and automation was outdated and ready for replacement. Doug Koehler, Director of Engineering for Hoag, wanted a new energy management and control system that would take advantage of the LAN and WAN recently installed by the Hospital’s MIS department. The Hospital stipulated that all the controllers to be furnished for their project be 100% compatible with Microsoft Windows and NT based software. Diversified Automation installed ASIC/2 configurable controllers for the central plant. ASIC/1 terminal controllers have since been installed for zone control in various areas. The natural gas that used to be flared off is now used to fuel the boilers. Consulting engineers were J.L. Hengstler and Associates.
