Metropolitan Museum of ArtNew York, NY, United States, United States
The MACH-Global™ controllers installed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art reside on a dedicated Cisco Layer 3 network on copper and fibre optic media which allow for Virtual Private Networking used for remote access to BMS equipment. With the installation of a Reliable Controls® MACH-System, the museum is able to integrate HVAC and lighting control by using Iconics Genesis 32 HMI with BACnet® to OPC servers and integrate with Koyo PLC’s and Staefa System II architecture.
The installation has made real-time system I/O available over a dedicated TCP/IP network. Maintaining temperature and humidity is critical in preserving priceless art collections, conservation areas, and art storerooms.
