Johnson Controls introduces Verasys

October 2019 System Integration & Control Systems Design

Johnson Controls recently introduced Verasys, a plug-and-play controls system that integrates heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) equipment and controls. Verasys offers customers a flexible, one-source procurement solution with advanced technology already embedded for the self-discovery of smart equipment. Suitable for single or multi-zone applications, the new controls system seamlessly connects to a vast range of smart-enabled mechanical and electrical equipment, controls and sensors using wireless configurations that result in cost savings.

“The system provides the required capabilities and secure data to deliver end-to-end control technology to building owners and as a result, customers can take advantage of a new level of insight into building operations and provide facilities that better serve occupants,” says Mark Redgard, operations manager at Johnson Controls in South Africa.

Verasys will be launched in South Africa during the third quarter of 2019.

Complete solutions

Configurable controllers provide simple settings for implementation. However, contractors have the option to change defaults to meet their unique requirements. The system also empowers them to offer a complete bundled solution of smart equipment and controls that work with third-party, package equipment for greater application, flexibility and protection of existing investments. Since the system communicates using BACnet MSTP, it integrates with Metasys or any third-party BACnet system. Contractors will also appreciate new opportunities to service equipment, thanks to optional fault detection and diagnostics that immediately deliver alarm notifications via email or text.

For building operators Verasys provides unprecedented, remote access anytime, anywhere, over a secure Internet connection using PCs, smartphones and tablets. The controls system connects users to data streams from smart controls in rooftop units, fan coils, zone dampers, heat pumps, refrigeration systems and lighting panels and more. With real-time data, managers can identify and troubleshoot issues remotely and take advantage of insightful solutions that deliver the quality and value their facilities require.
