SCADA, BMS and SMS
The need for SCADA, BMS and SMS
Buildings are not longer bricks and mortar or even concrete and steel. Large buildings need not only to provide living and working accommodation but must keep occupants comfortable with supply of Electricity, Water, Gas, Ventilation, Cooling, Heating, voice services and telephony, We must also protect occupants from fire and also the criminal element in society
For energy efficiency, buildings need to monitor services and provide feedback to a central point or control centre such that any issues can be resolved quickly.(even by the monitoring system itself)
NJS offers a SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) system that provides both BMS (Buiding management system) and SMS (Security management System) functionality from its Austrian Partners RESI.
NJS partners RESI have created the software SCADA,3D. With this windows based software they have created a completely new way to operate and maintain buildings. A 3d representation of the building is used to be able to locate faulty devices in the building. The software can also be used in a remote control centre managing numerous buildings across a country or even a continent with 2d map representations showing all the buildings managed by the system.
3d Models are generated from 2 Dimensional plans from which RESI import individual layers (lighting, fire protection, HVAC, electrical power etc) showing the positions and types of devices such as fire detectors, Fan Coil Units, temperature sensors etc. All such devices can be reported upon and maintenance teams sent to the exact location. for full investigation and fault resolution. Devices can even be remotely controlled from the control centre ether by operators or by an automatic response from the system to environmental changes within any room.
