One of France's leading racecourses outfits itself with a building management system, using Schneider Electric products
The Saint-Cloud racecourse covers 185 acres. The building management system installed uses Telemecanique brand products. Schneider Electric also supplied the Merlin Gerin electrical distribution equipment.
The Saint-Cloud racecourse presents several distinctive features. Many outside service providers and security guards have access to the site, and the equipment is spread over a very wide area. These two characteristics influenced the decision to implement a building management system (BMS) and to select Schneider Electric France for the solution implemented.
Answer to diversified needs
Jean-Marie Dunas, electricity services manager at the Saint-Cloud and Maisons Laffite racecourses sees the difference: “Today we have a perfectly controlled and scalable facility. The centralized control from the supervision station provides a noticeable time savings on such a sprawling site and les operators work comfortably, even with a limited team.”
This solution offers the advantage of being more flexible than a conventional BMS by virtue of its openness to third party products.
