To celebrate Independence Day, our building automation system (BAS) partner released a case study about their work at the Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France that was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It has become an icon for immigrants coming to America to build their "American Dream."
The statue was extensively restored in 1986 for its centennial. In 1995, Computrols was brought in to install a DOS-based BAS.
Here is a snippet from the case study:
The Statue of Liberty is one of the United States’ most cherished national monuments, attracting approximately 3.5 million visitors a year. The statue was opened to the public in 1886 and was extensively restored in time for its centennial in 1986.
In 1995, Computrols was brought in to install its DOS-based Computrols Building Automation Software (CBAS) and X-Line controllers to integrate to the existing Johnson Controls system. Computrols also leveraged its Fire One board at this time to integrate with the existing SLC loops and take over the statue’s fire system. This upgrade gave the monument’s in-house staff more reliable control of their HVAC and fire systems and the ability to manage the BAS themselves, rather than depending on Johnson Controls’ technicians. Between Computrols lifetime warranty controllers and its intuitive software, operating costs were cut drastically.
