Balancing Efficiency with Comfort
As energy prices continue to soar, facility managers are under increasing pressure to find ways to cut building operating costs. A simple solution would be to decrease energy consumption, but smart managers know that sacrificing comfort for energy savings could lead to even bigger financial problems. After all, studies have shown productivity decreases as comfort levels decline, leading to lost revenues in companies and difficult learning environments in school systems. What’s needed is a way to measure comfort, so managers will know exactly how far to cut energy usage without negatively impacting comfort.

COMFORT COUNTS

The Automated Logic Environmental IndexTM tool, also known as a Comfort Index, is the ideal tool for analyzing ongoing operations as well as assessing your sustainability targets. The index rolls up granular zone data, providing you general operational insight with the ability to drill down to any zone in question

BE IN THE KNOW, 24/7

The Environmental IndexTM tool assesses how well systems are controlling, identifying problem areas and delivering the justification for remedial action. A live, dynamic dashboard provides real-time analysis of conditions to the operator so they know exactly what is going on. With this technology, you won’t have to rely on a remote “expert” in the cloud who’s unfamiliar with your building.

Time Lapse Graphics

Instant replay for your building.

The revolutionary Time-lapse™ feature within the WebCTRL system allows operators to roll back time, up to a 24-hour slice, and play back hours of real-time data in just minutes. Time-lapse graphics provide the ability to look at floor plans, equipment graphics, trends and alarms over a past period of time so you can quickly identify, review and resolve building control issues. What better way to analyze and assess your system operations?

FORWARD-THINKING TECHNOLOGY THAT ALLOWS YOU TO LOOK BACK

Just by specifying a date and time range, a simple click will grab the system data and provide a view that can be stopped, backed up and stepped forward to narrow down and zero in on a system variance. The Time-lapseTM feature lets you catch that unnoticed event, assess off-hours operations and troubleshoot and compare functionality of buildings, systems and zones.

Eco-Screen Kiosk

Your building is smart. Show it off.

Automated Logic’s Eco-Screen® Sustainability Kiosk is a powerful tool that allows building owners to showcase their facilities’ energy conservation and sustainability measures. With the Eco-Screen kiosk, information is displayed on a large touch screen in the facility’s lobby or common area. Visitors can engage with the interactive display to learn about your building’s sophisticated operating system, highlighting your most innovative, energy-efficient building features.The revolutionary Time-lapse™ feature within the WebCTRL system allows operators to roll back time, up to a 24-hour slice, and play back hours of real-time data in just minutes.

What better way to analyze and assess your system operations?

SUSTAINABILITY KIOSK

The Eco-Screen® Sustainability Kiosk connects to WebCTRL® building automation systems to monitor energy data. Use the kiosk to compare the energy saving of your energy-efficient building with that of a conventional building. You can also view trends by hour, day, week, month or year, as well as historical highs and lows, total precipitation and weather trends.

LIVE DATA AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The kiosk displays live data, including current energy and water usage, reductions in CO2 emissions, outdoor air conditions such as temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, and more.

Fault Detection and
Diagnostics (FDD)

The Automated Logic Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) library in the WebCTRL® system can pinpoint over 100 proven faults in typical HVAC equipment, including VAV systems, air handlers, fan coils, unit ventilators, water-source heat pumps, and air-source heat pumps.

Pre-programmed FDD algorithms are a standard feature of the WebCTRL® building automation system and will alert building staff of potential equipment issues, help them identify the cause, and provide a visual display of preventive solutions. FDD can help reduce energy consumption, capital costs, and equipment wear and tear. Detecting and fixing equipment problems can lead to significant savings in energy and operational costs as well as improvements in occupant comfort. A 2013 Australian Summer Study on Energy Efficiency and Decentralized Energy estimated that FDD and ongoing commissioning could reduce building energy use by 17%1. The New Buildings Institute studied 181 buildings in five states and found significant problems in over half the equipment they investigated2. The built-in FDD capabilities of the WebCTRL system allow building operators to identify and respond to issues when they matter most - before they happen”, said Mead Rusert, President, Automated Logic. “By providing them with analytic tools that uncover potential problems with their HVAC equipment, they can take corrective action before system performance is compromised”.

Global Plasma Solutions

Engineering Air for a Cleaner World

GPS’ NPBI technology works to safely clean the air inside industrial, commercial and residential buildings. The patented technology uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and - ions. As these ions travel with the air stream they attach to particles, pathogens and gas molecules. The ions help to agglomerate fine submicron particles, making them filterable. The ions kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen. The ions breakdown harmful VOCs with an Electron Volt Potential under twelve (eV<12) into harmless compounds like O2, CO2, N2, and H2O. The ions produced travel within the air stream into the occupied spaces, cleaning the air everywhere the ions travel, even in spaces unseen.

Particle Reduction

The GPS NPBI technology reduces airborne particles (i.e., dust, pet dander, pollen) through agglomeration. The ions attach to the airborne particles. The particles are subsequently attracted to one another, effectively increasing their mass and size. The air filtration system easily captures the larger particles, increasing the capture efficiency of your HVAC system.

Pathogen Reduction

During the GPS cleaning process the NPBI technology attacks and kills viruses, mold spores and bacteria. The ions steal away hydrogen from the pathogens, leaving them to die, and leaving you with clean and healthy indoor air.


Odor Reduction

During the GPS cleaning process chemical, pet, cooking, and other odors are broken down into basic harmless compounds, leaving the indoor air fresh smelling and free of odor causing VOCs.

Energy Saving

GPS’ environmentally friendly cleaning process allows commercial buildings to significantly reduce the amount of outdoor air required to operate. This equates to a safer, more comfortable environment reduing outside air intake by up to 75%.
