BMW FIZ – Data Center Monitoring

Date: ongoing
Contracting entity: ERS-Elektrotechnik
End customer/site of installation: BMW FIZ

Project description:

We are continuously maintaining, expanding, and adjusting the existing monitoring control systems. These are used for the permanent monitoring of different measuring signals (temporary I/Os, currents). To record the signals, various PLC control systems are used, which collect and evaluate the measured values. The control systems are centrally visualized via a WinCC system, and an ACC system provides an operating status display and error alarm. In addition, energy meters are evaluated. Recirculating air-cooling units are centrally controlled for each smoke section. The control serves to provide the IT equipment with constant cooling, with the goal of using as little energy as possible.
