The DIGICONTROL ecs3 Retrokit enables operators of DIGICONTROL ecs3 and ecs3.+ automation stations to have their existing automation stations replaced by automation stations of the latest DIGICONTROL generation - inexpensively, quickly and, in most cases, even without impairing the ongoing operation of the building.
The Retrokit can be applied when new requirements are specified for the ecs3 or ecs3.+ automation station, which it may not be able to meet, or simply when the ecs3 or ecs3.+ is defective.
- Replacing ecs3 / ecs3.+ automation stations
- Integration of the automation system into existing Ethernet networks, BACnet and remote maintenance
- Customisation of the automation system to new requirements and energy efficiency measures in the building.
- Extension of the automation system to incorporate additional building components and components of technical building services.
- BACnet-compliant modernisation, as the Retrokit also includes a BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) of the latest generation if necessary (see accessories).
- Remote maintenance and operation of the automation system by means of the “Embedded webserver“, a management and operation controls and, if necessary, new touch panels.
The Retrokit is pre-wired ready to plug in, so that the existing ecs3 / ecs3.+ can simply be „unplugged“ and removed. The existing ecs3.+ plugs are simply inserted into the sockets of the Retrokit. The retrofitting times are therefore reduced to a minimum. For front mounting, use the supplied drilling template for the cut-out. Feel free to take advantage of our label service for marking the manual operating level: We produce the finished labels for you.
Update of the existing automation station software
The existing ecs3.+ - software is simply updated to the latest webCADpro version and loaded into the automation station ems2.CP14D of the Retrokit, and ready to go!
The control cabinet remains as it is
Modifications of the control cabinet control are not necessary for the installation of the Retrokit. If necessary, it is of course possible to add additional control modules, provided the necessary space is available in the cabinet.
More performance and comfort
The Retrokit contains a DIGICONTROL automation station of the latest generation, whose advantages can be enjoyed unrestrictedly by the operators after the retrofit: Enhanced processor performance leads to shorter response times, integration into modern management control systems and Ethernet/BACnet/IP networks means improved convenience for the operator.
Improved energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness
Due to the reorientation in dealing with the environment and energy and the accompanying revision of standards, a lot has happened in the area of energy efficiency in buildings in the recent years.
By using the Retrokit, building operators have the opportunity in the course of a modernisation to update their automation strategies to the latest state of the art.
Minimal effort for planning and documentation
The use of the Retrokit minimises the effort for the planning and documentation of the refurbishment or repair, as the Retrokit is pre-wired, ready to plug in and fully documented. The corresponding circuit diagram sheets are enclosed with the Retrokit and are simply inserted.
