The Pierre Brossolette High School in Villeurbanne (France) has recently been rebuilt next to the original building constructed 50 years ago. The new school can now accommodate 1,200 pupils (compared with the 1,000 in the old building), within a surface area of 14,500 m². It is equipped with the latest technological innovations, representing a major improvement in educational practices.
Why Distech Controls technology?
The specifications for this school included implementation of an open and modular solution, to guarantee that the equipment would be durable and able to adapt to potential future changes (e.g. expansion, changes in layout, etc.).
The full ECLYPSE BACnet/IP B-BC solution, from the equipment rooms to Distech Controls’ terminal equipment, caught the attention of everyone involved.
Another requirement was for easy control of CO2 levels in each classroom. This requirement reflects the current recommendations of the French Public Health Council (Haut Conseil de la Santé Publique) concerning CO2 monitoring in educational environments - the recommendation is for rooms to be ventilated to prevent the CO2 concentration exceeding 800 ppm. This is where the Allure UNITOUCH solution comes into its own. The elegant and discreet touchscreen interface will be able to be used by teachers and other staff to find out the CO2 level directly and adjust the room ventilation with just one click.

- 45 connected ECLYPSE controllers for ECY-PTU-107 terminal units
