RAC controls specialist RDM is taking on the building management systems market with a new expansion module for its Mercury plant controller.
The PRO 600 expansion module will allow the firm to compete with systems by the likes of Honeywell and Trend, enabling the monitoring and control of everything from lighting to security alongside rac plant, and from single units to distributed systems.
“We believe this will challenge existing solution providers and be a wake up call in terms of cost and flexibility,” said Steve Nicoll, sales and marketing director of RDM.
Unlike rival BMS systems, the RDM version does not have to be installed and commissioned by system houses
Mr Nicoll said: “It gives clients a new option that can be installed by any contractor, opening up the market in this previously highly specialised area.”
