The freely programmable GLT 3010 compact controller integrates building automation functionalities into the E*LDS system for the control of refrigeration systems, but it is also suitable for more sophisticated tasks in industrial refrigeration and automation.
Compact controller for building automation
Integrated solutions in building automation and building management systems require flexible control components. When it comes to taking advantage of synergies, the integration of building control functionalities into refrigeration systems often proves useful.
With a view to implementing sophisticated building automation solutions, Eckelmann has developed a freely programmable compact controller which creates the freedom required for this.
The GLT 3010 controller is freely programmable on the basis of PLC standard IEC 61131-3 and performs tasks related to building management systems and industrial automation, integrating them into the E*LDS system. With its numerous wiring options, it is suitable for the control of small and medium-sized automation solutions but also for special tasks such as, for instance, in the food industry or in canteen kitchens.
Interfaces with the refrigeration system
Special refrigeration problems such as heat recovery or waste heat utilisation can be completely accommodated by the refrigeration package, as the controller is perfectly equipped for interacting with the VS 3010 and UA 300 controllers.
The GLT 3010 model supplements the standard components of the E*LDS system by a universal automation module and thus allows great scope for the development of customised solutions.
Networking and central operation
As all other E*LDS components, the compact controller is integrated via CAN bus. In this way, it can be centrally – and conveniently – operated and parameterised via the system centre or LDSWin. For operating the BMS functions in a supermarket, a proven control panel with system centre and clearly arranged message and command level can be relied on. The scope of applications ranges from intelligent ventilation control with heat recovery and the complete building automation of food product markets (refrigeration, heat recovery, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting) to temperature control solutions in the meat processing industry. A comprehensive function library is available for standard tasks in building automation. Customised special solutions are supported by Eckelmann’s engineers.
