The hospital provides 120,000 consultations and manages 48,000 hospitalizations each year. The North West Hospital provides public health services in the territory 24 hours a day.

Why Distech Controls technology?

The Distech Controls solution was chosen for its open protocols (BACnet and LONWORKS). ECL-PTU LONWORKS controllers manage the ventilators and ECLYPSE modular controllers have been installed for the management of air treatment plants (operating theatres, etc.). These open building solutions guarantee compatibility with many protocols and standards, which makes this building future-ready and scalable.

Solutions installed in the building:

  • 250 LONWORKS controllers – ECL-PTU
  • 200 communication probes - Allure EC-Smart-Comfort
  • 13 ECLYPSE connected modular controllers - ECY-S1000
  • 3 multi-protocol web controllers - EC-BOS
  • Niagara Supervisory Software - EC-Net

  • Design Office: OTEIS
