During the past 30 years manufacturers of established brand of Building Control System have continued to follow their original and therefore old way of building and selling their proprietary hardware into the market. This is understandable; it suited their skill set and culture being purely hardware oriented.

Some of these solutions are mainly hardware with most of the functionalities provided by hardware; minimal software has been introduced in recent years to provide better Human to Machine interface.

Others are mainly built around Programmable Logic Controller (PLC); generic and programmable pieces of hardware designed to be applied to any control scenario, originally used in factory automation and process control.

A solution using a PLC is therefore expensive and complicated requiring specialist skill. This makes them expensive to adapt, configure, reconfigure for a changed scenario, operate and maintain.

A solution using a dedicated hardware box is inflexible and not scalable.

Both these approaches lock the solution into using control peripheral hardware (sensors and actuators) with fixed specification that suites the controller’s hardware inflexibility and characteristics.

But with the advent of the PC Newera Controls has changed the way building management and control is automated. Modern PC is an extremely powerful piece of hardware – Newera has tapped into this power.

Our solution is purely software effectively based on standard commodity product that can be procured from any source with a price that suites the solution provider. Newera GCS3000 runs in the real-time Linux environment with the PC as its core control engine. This creates a system that is fast, robust, scalable, flexible, expandable and cost-effective.

You no longer need expensive specialists to configure, commission, operate and maintain your building management system.
