IES and Daikin UK launch training dates for specification tool
Training seminars are now available for a new specification tool from IES and Daikin UK. This world-first tool, launched in May 2012, enables consultants to make accurate climate control system efficiency calculations at the design stage. It is fully integrated with the IES Virtual Environment 2012 (IESVE 2012) to deliver the most advanced modelling capabilities currently available for heat pump and heat recovery VRV systems.
Seminars are available throughout the country at Daikin’s regional branches in Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Woking. Starting at the end of June, the training seminars will run until March next year, demonstrating how architects and engineers can accurately predict an entire system’s efficiency in-situ from the outset of a project. This helps to ensure that systems meet today’s tough energy efficiency legislation and Building Regulations, while reducing the risk of over-specification and helping to control project costs.
The Daikin plug-in is free, requiring IESVE 2012 modules ModelIT, ApacheSim, ApacheCalc and/or ApacheLoads. However training is required to ensure the best VRV system is chosen and is installed correctly.
The software covers the entire Daikin VRV range, including all 2-pipe and 3-pipe options. It is able to make hundreds of thousands of individual calculations during analysis and can be used throughout projects, from planning through concept, schematic and detailed design, through to commissioning and operation.
The partnership between IES and Daikin UK to create this plug-in is just one example of the bespoke manufacturing capabilities IES is now offering as part of its Sustainability Hub.
Anyone completing the IES and Daikin VRV Systems training is eligible for 15% off on any VE purchase for up to one month after training has been finished.
