GF Piping Systems already offers the Hycleen Automation System (Hycleen AS), a solution that ensures high drinking water quality in building complexes such as hotels, hospitals or larger residential units. Now the company has introduced Hycleen Connect, a cloud-based solution for digital monitoring and control.

Cloud-based remote access for digital monitoring and control

Hycleen AS supports the maintenance of drinking water hygiene in complex drinking water installations. Based on hydraulic balancing, it ensures stable circulating water temperatures, flushes the pipes, and logs all data.

The system is easy to install and commission. However, with Hycleen AS, the control and reading out of information about the state of the system still requires a person on location.

Your benefits

Simple and intuitive

Similar to Hycleen AS, the cloud-based Hycleen Connect solution was developed based on the plug&play principle, can be installed in a few minutes, and then easily operated via an intuitive dashboard.

100 % digital

you have remote access to your system. 

Reliable

The patients of a hospital, the tenants of a residential building, or the guests of a hotel can rely on the availability of cold and hot water at the right quality. It is monitored around the clock by an automated system with alarm function. This lowers risks.

Central remote control

With the cloud remote access one or even more Hycleen AS systems and thus several buildings can be monitored. This turns the building manager into a digital service provider.

Energy & sustainability

In general, automation and digitization lower the cost of drinking water and energy consumption while also saving costs.

High system availability

The smart Hycleen valves with their different sensors facilitate the search for errors in the system. This considerably lowers the downtimes of drinking water systems. The data is recorded via the sensors in combination with the Controller.

Easy to set up, easy to bill

The 3-step process

Your remote access is ready for use.

Interfaces and licenses

GLT Interface BACnet IP

You have the option of, on the one hand, using BACnet IP (Building Automation and Control networks) including the license for the release of the BACnet IP interface for connecting Hycleen AS to a building services management system. The interface allows linking the building services management (BSM) with reading rights. BACnet works with conventional BSM programs. The connection among the masters and the GLT+ mapping on the GLT level requires programming by a GLT specialist.

The following Hycleen Automation System data can be exported from the higher-level BMS by acquiring a license.

  • Real time data monitoring
  • Logging
  • Alarm management
GLT interface REST API/JSON

On the other hand, the connection can be created via Rest API (Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface), including the license for the use of the REST API/JSON interface for connecting Hycleen AS to a building management system. Data communication is implemented via the respective interface. The interface allows linking the building services management (BSM) with reading rights. Rest API is the interface of the future. The connection among the masters and the GLT+ mapping on the GLT level requires programming by a GLT specialist.

The following Hycleen Automation System data can be exported from the higher-level BMS by acquiring a license.

  • Real time data monitoring
  • Logging
  • Alarm management
Master Relay Lizenz

License to activate the Master relay module. This license allows programming of the Master relay using the Actuator Automation application. This allows the implementation of further building and process automation functions. Immediately following the registration of the Hycleen Automation System, the module is available free of charge on the Georg Fischer CONNECT platform. 

Actuator Automation License

License to activate the Actuator Automation application module. This license allows programming of the Master and Uni Controller relay and the 4-20 mA input/output of the Uni controller. This allows the implementation of further building and process automation functions. 

Hycleen Connect License

License for the release of the Hycleen Connect service – on a monthly basis. It allows connection of the Hycleen AS installation to the Hycleen Connect cloud for:

  • Remote monitoring
  • Automatic alarms
  • Remote access
  • Data management
  • Asset manager
Remote monitoring

Live system overview, clearly structured dashboards, historic data, reports as the data basis for system analysis and optimization

Alarm system

Alarms Quick reaction times E-mail notifications Less control checks Reduced maintenance and operation costs

Remote access

Efficient system control, online adjustment of all application parameters and valve settings, remote optimization of your system

Data management and asset manager

Download protocols via the cloud Data integrity (tamper-proof system data) High data security Manage one or more drinking water installations remotely

Find the error, reduce costs

Application examples

Homes for the elderly

Hygiene has a very high priority in homes for the elderly, as older and often persons with a weak immune system are staying there. Accordingly, the cleanliness of the drinking water is of central importance. Operators of homes for the elderly are well advised to pay particular attention to hygiene in the drinking water installation so as to exclude any health risks for the inhabitants as far as possible.

Hotels

Not in all hotels can all the individual rooms and the associated water connections be used. Particularly when the rooms are occasionally empty, it is advisable to pay attention to hygiene in the drinking water installations and to flush these regularly. The highest quality of drinking water is important, as in hotels there are many people with differing levels of health stability - an important point to consider for operators, so that all guests feel comfortable.

Hospitals

Hospital hygiene must meet the highest requirements. Hygiene in the water supply is an important component. Drinking water is used everywhere. Starting with hand washing before operations, cleaning of surgical instruments and hospital equipment, in the catering sector, up to hospital cleaning and laundry.

Without hygienically perfect water this is not possible. Behavioral rules in hospitals help to combat the spread of infections. The Hycleen Automation System provides efficient protection against contamination in the pipeline system, a lasting protection against infection and helps to prevent nosocomial infections.

Multi-family houses

Drinking water installations are faced with a number of challenges in multi-family houses. On the one hand, not all apartments are always rented out, which means that their drinking water installations are not used.

Particularly when the rooms are occasionally empty, it is advisable to pay attention to hygiene in the drinking water installations and to flush these regularly. At the same time, people with various health conditions live in multi-family houses.

Therefore, the drinking water must have the required quality. The residents rely on clean and healthy drinking water coming our of their tabs. Building management companies usually are in charge of several buildings. It is therefore advantageous to them if they can centrally manage and control the drinking water supply.
