SAN FRANCISCO —Daikin Applied (formerly Daikin McQuay) has announced plans to integrate Intel-based technology in its rooftop units to utilize building data and create intelligent building systems. According to the company, these systems would intuitively know and adjust to what building occupants need for comfort and energy efficiency.
Daikin Applied is implementing this through an Intel intelligent gateway solution in its existing Rebel rooftop units. With the Intel solution, Daikin Applied said it is able to connect Rebel units to the cloud and securely aggregate, filter, and share data. This will allow Daikin Applied to help users proactively manage the performance of their buildings and makes them aware of HVAC issues before they arise.
