Internet Digital Control
John J. “Jack” Mc Gowan, CEM
Learn to optimize Facility Management and Reduce Operating Cost with this comprehensive seminar on Direct Digital Control And Internet-enabled System Integration
Managers are demanding real-time tools to manage the results of energy technology investments targeted at cutting operating costs and positioning businesses to weather economic downturns. Real-time Building System Integration is the defining principle for future of energy management, and owners can reap the benefits that this technology offers.
The Seminar provides a primer on Direct Digital Controls for Building Automation plus a complete tutorial on hardware, software and Internet enabled energy and automation services that managers must understand. It provides an overview of trends and essential knowledge to evaluate Internet-based energy offerings, and assess the value of Internet-based features that are used to promote Energy, HVAC, Building Automation and Open System products. This seminar covers critical data to assist in using Internet -based building control technology as part of a management tool for full-scale system integration.
Building Automation, Internet-based Energy Services and Information Technology are converging. Internet-enabled energy offerings and product features are overwhelming owners, users and engineers. Lines that have traditionally separated technology sectors are blurring because of;
large integration of Digital Control at the equipment and building-wide level
expanding reality of open systems,
national attention on energy and facility infrastructure issues,
energy price escalation particularly with natural gas
growing specialization of "system integrator" and
user demand for Internet features plus attempts to differentiate products with " Web-features."
Owners and specifiers will gain critical information to make buying decisions in the Internet-enabled Digital Control marketplace. The Instructors' articles and recurring Column in Energy User News and www.AutomatedBuildings.com have been called "must reads" for the industry. This seminar expands on these to make it the definitive requirement for professionals who want to learn about such trends as control system convergence, DDC open systems and Internet-based Application Service Providers (ASPs). The lines are blurring between traditionally stand-alone industries including Information Technology, Energy/ Utility sales and Building Automation.
