ASI Controls - Project List

This list of projects describes some of the many sites in which ASI Control Systems are installed and operating. ASI Controls systems are installed by independent system integrators and value added resellers, so this list is not complete. 

 

 

Retail

 

Worcester Commons Fashion Outlet, Worcester, MA

New England Development provides 1.5 million square feet of retail and office space.  American Energy Management (AEM), the system integrator, installed an ASI Control System to control the main plant rooms, the offices and the mall common areas.  AEM also installed controllers for 100 mall lighting zones, the boilers and the main plant (3 steam boilers and 4 chillers).  Air handlers include supply and exhaust fan tracking. 

 

Outside measuring carbon dioxide as a marker, and regulating the outside air dampers to provide just enough outside air to meet ventilation requirements as occupancy changes during the day control air for ventilation.  This avoids heating or cooling more outside air than necessary for ventilation.

 

More than 140 zones of VAV control are provided for tenant spaces and common areas. Four networked (Ethernet) workstations with ViewPort Graphical User Interfaces are provided for mall management, security and maintenance.

Health Care

 

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian – Newport Beach, CA

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  After twenty years service the original mechanical systems and the control and automation was outdated and ready for replacement.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.
