Integrated building management

CentraLine's core competency is integrated building management. The brand stands for tailored, intelligent solutions for office buildings, schools, shops, hotels, universities, mixed-usage buildings, and many other facilities of all sizes. CentraLine solutions are based on leading Honeywell technology, such as the Niagara framework, enabling truly integrated building management – from HVAC control, lighting and shading, access control, fire alarm systems, closed-circuit television (CCTV), lifts, elevators, etc. through to complete energy management solutions. The focus is on optimizing energy consumption by networking the various different systems within a building.

The partner network

The partner concept is a fundamental pillar of the CentraLine strategy. The brand distributes its solutions via more than 600 highly qualified partners in the EMEA region. The major benefit of the partnership principle is that customers are assured flexible and professional support close to them. This enables CentraLine to honor its slogan 'close to you' in more than 40 countries. All partners are experienced specialists in building control systems who regularly attend training sessions so that they are always up-to-date with the latest technical developments. They are supported by committed teams from technical support, engineering, sales, and marketing from CentraLine. In return, the CentraLine product developers benefit from the many suggestions they receive directly from users. Thanks to this direct feedback, CentraLine products can be constantly improved and adapted to market requirements.

The roots

The name CentraLine is derived from the German brand Centra. In 1930, the 'Zentra' mixing valve for central heating systems revolutionized the industry. Acquired by Honeywell in 1984, the Centra site in Schoenaich near Stuttgart rose to become one of the company's leading research and development centers. Due to growing demand, Honeywell founded a partner brand for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle-East, Africa) in 2004: CentraLine was born and was launched with 65 partners in Germany, Great Britain, France, and the Netherlands. Two years later, the countries of Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Romania, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Russia followed. Today, over 600 partners in more than 40 countries distribute CentraLine solutions.

New supervisor ARENA NX by CentraLine

CentraLine, Honeywell’s partner brand for integrated building management, introduces a new generation of connected building management systems with the supervisor ARENA NX. The easy operation of complex facilities, extensive possibilities for data acquisition and evaluation across HVAC and non-HVAC systems in a building, as well as interdisciplinary automation strategies increase comfort, while at the same time energy and maintenance costs are reduced. Comprehensive integration possibilities for building technology communication protocols as well as the support of the latest visualization and control standards are the basis for this.

Efficient facility management and intuitive system operation

Clearly structured user interfaces customized for the individual user or user target groups enable an efficient facility management. Free text search options are the basis for an intuitive system operation. ARENA NX supports "metadata" for adding keywords and additional information to all facility components. This information is used for the search function as well as the structuring of the technical systems.

Building management from simple to complex

ARENA NX, a BACnet supervisor, integrates HVAC systems and non-HVAC systems (e.g. lighting, access control, alarm systems, fire protection and others) in a building or throughout several buildings. The primary use is suitable for applications by which several CentraLine EAGLEHAWK and/or EAGLE controllers communicate within a network and with other systems, on the basis of TCP/IP communication standards (such as BACnet/IP, LON over IP, oBIX, OPC (client), Modbus TCP, KNX/IP and SNMP), are directly integrated. Non-IP-based systems are also integrated simply via CentraLine HAWK devices, which are based on the same platform as the control center. Thus, the commissioning and the management of the systems are greatly streamlined thanks to the use of the universal software and tool platform.

ARENA NX provides visually processed and easy to understand real-time information, such as central control icons, data recording and archiving. User-configurable dashboards can be used to group important information together specifically. The system-wide alarm management is a further important cross-cutting function.

The support of HTML5 standards for web visualization enables an operation without the use of Java applets and thus prevents security and compatibility issues with browsers. ARENA NX can be operated via standard web browsers on a PC, tablets, and smartphones.

CentraLine expansions improve efficiency

CentraLine NX includes components which largely increase the commissioning and efficient operation of a building:

  • Significantly increased energy efficiency and simplified commissioning/maintenance due to an application library with components for heating, ventilation and air conditioning
  • Reduced commissioning costs and simplified operations through automatically generated system documentation
  • Reduction of operating costs through energy management components
  • The enhanced features for the BACnet connection simplify the operation of the BACnet systems, which means commissioning takes less effort.
