Automated Logic Releases New Version of WebCTRL® Building Automation System
KENNESAW, Ga., July 13, 2016 — Building owners can manage their building’s performance from anywhere in the world – and can do so more quickly and intelligently – thanks to new enhancements to Automated Logic Corporation’s flagship product, the WebCTRL® building automation system. The robust web-based building automation platform now features optimized trend reporting, new visualization tools, mobile support capability and Open Automated Demand Response (ADR) to further help manage building energy conservation measures, identify key operational problems and analyze the end results. ALC, a leading provider of innovative building automation systems, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
“The release of our latest WebCTRL system reinforces Automated Logic’s continued focus on making building data simple and powerful for our customers to use,” said Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic. “By empowering them with tools and features that make it easy to visualize and interpret their building data, we are providing them insight on how to improve building performance from across the room or aroundthe world.”
The WebCTRL system allows building owners and facility managers to balance energy efficiency with occupant comfort and uses building analytics and visual data to help drive smart management decisions. New features of the WebCTRL v6.5 system include:
• Optimized trend engine – Performance
and storage enhancements have been made to the WebCTRL system’s
powerful trending engine, providing operators with the ability to
store, visualize, and process years of historical building data in just
seconds. The new turbo-charged trend engine offers 15 times the
original read speed, 10 times the original delete speed, and five times
the original write speed of trend data, all while using 70 percent less
storage space. The result is that facility managers can capture even
more building information faster, allowing them to analyze past
building performance to drive smart decisions in the future.
• Powerful data visualization tools – Data visualization in the WebCTRL system is now even more powerful. A new toolkit for dashboards allows building operators to create their own customized dashboards for viewing
the key performance metrics in their building, providing them with increased visibility into their building operations at any time. In a world where anything of significance should be measured and watched so that it
can be improved, these dashboards make it easy for operators to know when their building is performing well aad when it isn’t.
• Enhanced mobile and screen navigation – The WebCTRL system now automatically detects small-screen devices such as smart phones and tablets, providing users with an optimal viewing and interaction experience.
• OpenADR add-on – This new software application allows the WebCTRL v6.5 system to retrieve live power demand information from a participating utility company and then shed load based on pre-programmed demand response strategies. Fully compliant with the OpenADR v2.0a/b protocol, this add-on allows customers to curb their electrical demand (kW) in order to gain financial benefits such as a reduction in electrical costs or incentives.
