Halton Workplace WSO – System optimiser central unit

The Halton Workplace WSO ensures required ventilation airflow rates and reduces air handling unit (AHU) fan speed to improve energy efficiency.

It communicates with the building management system that is controlling air handling unit (AHU) and all zone dampers to optimise system performance in all circumstances.

  • Part of Halton Workplace system
  • Communication protocol: BACnet/IP
  • Optimises AHU static pressure setpoint and zone damper openings

Overview

The Halton Workplace system is a solution offering room condition management, zone static pressure, and pressure optimisation of the air handling unit (AHU). The demand-based operation of the Workplace system ensures energy efficient operation, without compromising indoor air quality.

The Halton Workplace WSO ensures required ventilation airflow rates and reduces air handling unit (AHU) fan speed to improve energy efficiency. It communicates with the building management system that is controlling air handling unit (AHU) and all zone dampers to optimise system performance in all circumstances.

Halton Workplace WSO can be equipped with Halton Edge gateway to access the Halton Connect and Care IoT platform with cloud-based portal, to see system performance data for system maintenance and to connect with Workplace partner solutions.
The Halton Workplace system supports common BACnet communication protocol.

Application area

  • Central control unit of Halton Workplace System

Key features

  • Communication protocol: BACnet/IP
  • Optimises AHU static pressure setpoint and zone damper openings
  • Manages AHU minimum airflow limitation by communicating with room units
  • Reduces air handling unit fan speed to improve energy efficiency
  • Includes optional Halton Edge remote control

Operating principal

The Halton Workplace WSO manages air handling unit (AHU) fan operation based on the pressure and airflow demand of the system. It communicates with Halton Workplace Zone dampers (Halton Max MDC). If all zone dampers are regulating, airflow although the least demanding zone damper should be fully open with low pressure drop. The Halton Workplace WSO  manages the air handling unit (AHU) fan pressure accordingly to keep the pressure level at lowest possible value to reach the desired zone airflow. This reduces the energy consumption of AHU fans and keeps the system at optimal operation conditions.

Same time the Halton Workplace WSO manages AHU minimum airflow limitation by communicating with room units. If AHU airflow is below minimum airflow limit, for instance in situation when most of the room units are operating with minimum airflow rate, The Halton Workplace WSO increases airflow rate in room level in order to maintain AHU airflow at minimum airflow limit.

The Halton Workplace WSO  consists of two hierarchic levels of operation: the manager module and zone dampers. The functions of each are outlined below.

Halton Workplace WSO – System optimiser controller
