Intelligas MSC101 Service Controller completes testing
Intelligas, the gas safety and control systems specialist, has completed final testing of its new high-technology Multi-Services Controller, MSC 101, which integrates gas, water and electricity controls and is the first system designed specifically to monitor CO2 levels in classrooms as required under BB101, the latest standard for school building.
“This really is a superb piece of equipment,” says Andrew Dickenson, Managing Director of Intelligas. “It passed every test we could come up with, with flying colours. It gives the building user the best possible, and the most flexible, environmental control.”
This flexibility means that MSC 101 can be adapted quickly and easily to future requirements. “It’s vital to future proof school buildings as much as possible,” he says. “By putting in MSC101 to control all your services, you get a system that can deal with the rule changes that are absolutely certain to come up during the life of the building.”
Anyone planning work on school buildings during the long summer break must bear BB101 in mind. “It came into force in July 2006, but not everybody has realised its full implications,” says Andrew Dickenson. “It is important, because increased CO2 levels can affect children’s concentration.”
Under “Building Bulletin 101 Ventilation of School Buildings” issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, CO2 levels must be monitored and controlled in any situation where there are CO2 sources adding to what is normally produced by the children’s own breathing.
Intelligas is the first to deal with the new requirements in an integrated control system. “We base our control systems on the latest solid state technology,” says Andrew Dickenson. “It gives us the flexibility to come up with something new quickly as new needs arise. MSC101 is the only system designed to do the job from the start. If you don’t use it, you’re stuck with engineers trying to rig something up on site.”
