Section 08 80 00 – Dynamic Glazing.
Section 26 09 00 - Instrumentation and Control for Dynamic Glazing.
Division 26 - Electrical
DEFINITIONS Refer to other divisions for industry standard glass and glazing definitions. The following apply to this section:
BMS: Building management system.
Wall interface: Wall mounted user interface display.
Window Controller: Controller that sends voltage signal to one or multiple IGUs.
BACnet: ASHRAE, ANSI, and ISO standard communications protocol for Building Automation and Control networks
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION Basic Controls:
Dynamic Glass insulated glass units shall be operated by the manufacturer’s Dynamic Glass control system.
The Dynamic Glass control system consists of a Control Panel mounted at the project site (usually in common control room for alarm, fire, and similar items).
The control panel contains power supplies and controllers that communicate to windows. The Dynamic Glass Master Controller controls all critical functions and interface functions for the glass. These include the scheduler, the wall switch monitor, interfaces for mobile devices and BMS, critical glass control parameters, and the building dimensions and parameters for the manufacturer’s automatic control mode.
SUBMITTALS Comply with Division 01 General Requirements and submit for approval:
Product Data: Manufacturer’s Dynamic Glass literature including data sheets, installation instructions, use restrictions and limitations.
QUALITY ASSURANCE Integrated Automation Installer Qualifications:
Experienced with comparable installations and having successful performance on not less than 3 such installations.
Acceptable to Dynamic Glass manufacturer.
PROJECT CONDITIONS Environmental Requirements: Install assemblies only in indoor, clean, climate controlled spaces using the final building mechanical system.
WARRANTY For Balance of System (BOS) Components necessary for operation and control of insulating glass units, the manufacturer shall warrant the system free of defects in material and workmanship as follow:
Warranty period shall commence on the date of delivery of components by the system manufacturer.
Warranty period: 5 years.
PRODUCTS MANUFACTURER Basis-of-Design: View Dynamic Glass Integrated Automation Control and Monitoring Network assemblies as manufactured or supplied by:
195 S. Milpitas Blvd, Milpitas, CA 95035
Substitutions: Not permitted
Proposed substitutions: Will be reviewed only if submitted in writing for approval by the design professional of record a minimum of 10 working days prior to the bid date and made available to all bidders. Proposed substitutes shall be accompanied by review of specification noting compliance on a line-by-line basis.
EXECUTION MASTER CONTROLLER CONNECTIVITY Verify Dynamic Glass Master Controller connectivity to the corporate IT network, Manufacturer HQ, the Dynamic Glass Control Network, and to either public or private DNS/ NTP server.
Ensure the Master Controller is installed in the Corporate IT infrastructure such that the rest of the system components operate correctly, including:
Communication to the Dynamic Glass controllers on the private network.
Communication to the Dynamic Glass App for users both inside and outside the corporate network/firewall.
Additional Dynamic Glass Control Panels required to service multiple floors or buildings shall be connected on a private LAN to allow critical communication to/from the Dynamic Glass controllers.
REMOTE CONNECTIVITY Verify Remote Connectivity from Manufacturer HQ to the Dynamic Glass Master Controller to enable consistent remote access for Manufacturer’s personnel to commission, configure, monitor, and maintain the system.
Connectivity Options: Provide connection through the following as applicable.
Firewall via DMZ using routable IP address for the Master Controller – if Inbound/Outbound restrictions are added, use port mapping.
Firewall via port mapping using routable IP address for the Master Controller
Firewall restricted to the Dynamic Glass IP address range (for extra security) via port mapping or DMZ.
Firewall with VPN access.
Guest/Vendor network separate from your business network.
Port 80: default HTTP connection, but can be set to different port.
Port 22: Secure Shell.
Port 3389: used for service technician access.
Port 10000: system management and remote software update.
Port 80: Dynamic Glass App connectivity to Master Controller.
MOBILE APP CONNECTIVITY Verify operation of Dynamic Glass App for users inside and outside the corporate network/firewall. App shall have direct communication to the Master Controller via Wi-Fi or cellular network.
FINAL OPERATIONAL TESTING CONNECTIVITY After Dynamic Glass system start-up, conduct an overall system test to verify system is operational per system operating instructions.
