This project required Cube to update and improve the environmental controls for the DDD Dendron pharmaceutical storage warehouse. We employed an extensive Sontay Sonnet wireless sensing system to monitor the various temperatures in the warehouse and around the products stocked, thus allowing sensors to be placed where cabled sensors could not be. This inturn was paired with a new packaged Air Handling Unit and high level Air Distribution System, both of which were controlled via modbus data integration. As the distributed air control is located at such a high level in the warehouse, we dedcided to employ an array of Belimo MP-Bus damper actuators with local supply air temperature sensing and onboard fault diagnosis, thus reducing the need for maintenance staff to physically access them to an absolute minimum.
All systems were integrated into a single Cube BMS solution that provides full PC based User control and automatic data recording of product stock temperature as well as remote mechanical fault notification from the high level air damper system and other plant items. Since completion of this project we have been informed that this control system design is to form the blue print for further pharmaceutical warehouses environmental systems.
