Siemens Building Technologies wins new global OEM software customer
On October 16, 2017 the Siemens Building Technologies Division signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Midea, a Chinese manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. Under this agreement, Siemens Building Technologies will provide building management supervisor software for global distribution of HVAC systems. The product is based on the Desigo CC open building management platform from Siemens.
Midea (Guangdong Midea Heating & Ventilation Equipment Co. Ltd.) plans to offer this software worldwide to operate large HVAC installations. Midea will market the software under the name "Midea M-BMS Supervisor." The solution based on Desigo CC was customized by Siemens Building Technologies to meet the client's requirements and supports plug-and-play integration for Midea equipment.
Since 2017, the Division has been providing a fully customizable version of the Desigo CC platform for OEMs. It uses a modular software approach where the base product can be combined with optional features, building discipline libraries, system integrations and applications, as well as language packs. Solutions can be customized in terms of branding, connection of external software and integration of devices. In addition, the Desigo CC Application and Integration Center develops extensions and provides support for OEMs both in the planning phase and during operations.
Desigo CC is the first integrated building management platform to cover the complete scope from small to large buildings and across building comfort systems (HVAC, room automation, energy efficiency), building safety and security (fire safety, intrusion detection, access control, video surveillance, evacuation, extinguishing, gas) and energy distribution. Based on open protocols, state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive functionality, Desigo CC sets new industry standards. An intuitive user interface and integrated workflow management make it easy to engineer and operate building systems and increase the productivity of building operations.
