Honeywell launches new energy management system for buildings
New IQ Vision software from Trend Control Systems helps building owners, facilities management companies to manage and save energy in real-time
Honeywell has launched IQ Vision, a Building Energy Management System (BEMS) from Trend Control Systems.
The new centralised software platform is part of the Honeywell’s Connected Building offering, and is designed to help building owners and managers optimize energy usage.
In the GCC, it is estimated that 50% to 60% of electricity is consumed by residential and commercial buildings, according to Frost and Sullivan.
IQ Vision software integrates Trend controllers, smart devices and internet protocols into a platform that enables operators to manage and save energy in real-time while optimising operations using an intuitive graphical interface.
The new platform also provides graphical energy usage information to standard internet browsers, and can integrate third-party devices using open standard protocols such as BACnet, Modbus, MBUS and KNX.
Other functions built into the new system include centralised data logging, archiving, alarming, trending, master scheduling, system wide database management, and integration with enterprise software applications – all of which can be used for highlighting and investigating energy use within buildings.
Yashdeep Sule, director of strategic marketing, Middle East, Turkey, Africa, Honeywell Building Technologies said: “Building managers, operators and owners in the region are increasingly leveraging advanced technology to save energy, optimize building systems and ultimately reduce costs.
“We have introduced a wide range of new features that will give building operators and managers a level of control and fine detail that was previously considered out of reach. This is a game changer that greatly enhances the overall effectiveness of a BEMS, taking functionality and energy management to a whole new level,” he added.
