LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo., Sept. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Lynxspring, Inc. (https://www.lynxspring.com), a premier developer and provider of open software and hardware platforms, solutions, and services for smarter buildings, equipment control, and device-to-enterprise integration, announced today it donated a variety of Onyxx® LX products that will be used in the Building Automation Systems Program lab at Georgia Piedmont Technical College, in Clarkston, Georgia (https://www.gptc.edu).
Working with its partner, Southland Controls, LLC, (https://southlandcontrols.net), a leading building controls provider in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area, Lynxspring provided configurable controllers, smart thermostats, and digital room sensors. The lab is a state-of-the-art working environment that utilizes actual equipment and systems that are currently in commercial buildings. Students work on a variety of systems with tools and software that an actual technician uses in the field.
Encompassing a comprehensive range of current technologies and disciplines to maintain comfort, control and energy savings in residential and commercial HVAC systems and facilities, the Building Automation Systems curriculum provides students with the understanding of building automation and system integration, along with the knowledge on how to install, service and sell controls equipment including access controls, fire alarm systems, lighting controls, security systems, and HVAC controls.
Students learn the combination of skills that enable them to enter the field of building automation and controls. They can choose to work for major controls companies who specialize in building automation, for companies whose focus is purely installation of automation systems, and/or for facilities management companies who focus on commercial systems and controls automation.
"We are committed to helping cultivate the next generation of building automation and controls technicians to ensure they are prepared to succeed in the industry," said Robert Croom, Program Director at Georgia Piedmont Technical College. "Students are the future of our industry and will fill a wide range of critical positions that are immediately available. Lynxspring's donation, along with their partner, Southland Controls, is a testament to both companies' commitment to helping us do this."
"Southland Controls and Georgia Piedmont Technical College's Building Automation Systems Program have enjoyed an outstanding relationship over the last year," said Casey Roberts, Operations Manager at Southland Controls. "Lynxspring's generosity will allow students to begin their careers in this exciting time of building automation and controls."
"The building automation and controls market continues to grow rapidly, driven by the need to operate and manage buildings more efficiently, save energy and support a healthy work and sustainable environment," said Marc Petock, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Lynxspring. "One of the biggest challenges we face today is a talent gap, as we have more opportunities and not enough people to fill them. We are delighted to be able to support the education of future generations with this contribution."
