The HVAC Integrated Tool (HIT) from Siemens Building Technologies which has been enthusiastically welcomed by the experts is now available as an online version. It is now even more straightforward and more efficient to plan and engineer heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration plants. Also, the online version supports the European energy efficiency standard EN 15232, thus helping to make full use of the energy saving potential of buildings.
The HVAC Integrated Tool relieves installers, consulting and planning engineers of routine work and helps save time when searching for suitable HVAC controls. In a practice-oriented and user-friendly way, the tool’s software accesses the complete range of valves, actuators, sensors, thermostats and variable speed drives available from Siemens. The menu-driven program is self-explanatory and matched to the typical working processes of the trade, enabling users to become quickly familiar with the tool.
Supporting energy efficiency standard EN 15232
Siemens Building Technologies plays a leading role when it comes to implementing the energy efficiency regulations of the European Union. This is also proven by HIT: The tool offers more than 300 preconfigured standard HVAC applications classified according to their energy saving potential. This enables the user to select the application that comes closest to his requirements. Documents linked to the applications also present the conditions to be met to ensure compliance with the energy efficiency class to EN 15232.
Enhanced comfort and always up to date thanks to HIT’s online version
Thus far, HIT has only been available in the form of a CD. With immediate effect, the tool is also available as an online version – in terms of looks and functions the same product as the CD version. In addition to permanent accessibility from any location, HIT offers a host of benefits: For example, all data relating to the product ranges including prices and all technical documents are constantly updated. When accessing former projects, the program identifies products that might no longer be available and – using its search function – helps find suitable successor models. What’s more, the online version ensures more straightforward data exchange between project partners, e.g. between the planning engineer and the installer. Naturally, the online version is also capable of saving completed projects for use with future objects.
Based on practical experience
Like the CD version of HIT, the structure of the online version is based on proven everyday planning work. The ”Products“ section of the tool enables the planning engineer to select the right products for a project in just a few steps. In the “Applications“ section, the type of plant is selected and specified on a project-specific basis. Then, from a choice of 300 preconfigured and adaptable applications, HIT creates the matching solution including plant diagram and material list. All product proposals made show the prices and contain notes on the accessory items required.
Using the project management module and the data stored, HIT can automatically produce the complete documentation required for a specific plant or project, which can also be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for use in quotations, for example.
