Swanson Rink, Inc. Instrumentation And Controls Engineer in Denver, Colorado

1. Development of submittals including architecture, controller type,actuator/sensor types, and protocol interfaces to 3rd party devices(including the research needed to determine what's needed for theinterface, the data available, and how to divide up the sequence ofoperation between, say, an RTU and the BAS).2. Experience in how sequences and points are affected by the criticalitylevel of the facility.3. Sequence of operation writing that shall include point and digitallycommunicated data selection.4. Mechanical (HVAC) design knowledgeAdvanced understanding what equipment/systems work best in whichapplications, the limitations of various equipment/systems concerning"controllability" and reliability, how to coordinate with the mechanicalengineer/design to understand this for a given project and make suggestionsto improve the designAbility to review mechanical design drawings for use in coordination with theBAS design and to supplement the above coordination.Experience with codes/standards concerning controls requirements (which ismainly the energy conservation codes/standard).5. Electrical EngineeringExperience in coordinating with electrical design engineers concerning wherecircuits are needed .and. the types of circuits required (i.e., UPS and/ordual-source fed), and identifying which portions of the BAS should be fedby which circuits.Knowledge of PMS's (e.g., Power Logic or ION) to make sure that thereis a clear understanding of the demarcation between this design and the BAS,and to provide architecture .and. protocol knowledge support.Knowledge of SCADA and PLC (i.e., used for electrical systems' control).6. Basic IP Networking knowledge is Required7. Must be open to learning new BAS systems without bias towards varioussystems and adapt specifications accordingly.Ability to research the capabilities of BAS systems and products (e.g.,BTL listings, partial vs. full IP comm., partial vs. full customprogramming .and. what controllers have time clocks; how this affects theoptimum architecture, integration .and. system reliability in criticalfacilities; and what systems/products do vs. don't meet the projectsrequiremen Strong writing skills for specifications .and. sequences of operation.Other Job Responsibilities1.
