SIP+ DATA hardware enables simple, fast data acquisition, transfer and integration for improved building performance
Data acquisition has been made simple with our new multi-protocol SIP+ Data IF Acquisition hardware. The hardware extracts data from Building Management Systems, plant, sensors, meters, etc. for analysis and/or integration with other systems and platforms such as our own iNSIGHT EBIS/Billing and/or third parties. This analysis can then pinpoint areas and support strategies for reducing energy consumption and lowering running costs of a building or estate.
The innovative SIP+ Data IF Acquisition product gathers high volumes of real-time data from a wide variety of plant, sensors, meters and systems such as gas, electricity, temperature, biomass, humidity, power usage meters etc. at regular intervals. Reports can then be generated and sent via e-mail, FTP, securely by SFTP, FTPS or queried directly via MySQL to many third party system such as a data analytics or billing provider and can be interfaced to a Trend, BACnet or Modbus BMS.
SIP+ Data IF is a flexible and cost-effective solution which has been designed for receiving and transmitting data via multiple protocols such as Modbus, M-Bus, BACnet, Trend and IoT (MQTT and REST) The quantity and quality of the smart data gathered gives plenty of scope for meaningful analysis, allowing the smallest fluctuations in building efficiency to be monitored, identified and adjusted. At sufficient scale, these small improvements in building performance can result in substantial reductions in running costs.
The device can collect values from an M-Bus, ModBus, BACnet or Trend Network (BMS Data acquisition) and MQTT enabled devices taking multiple readings from around a building or estate at a minimum of 5 minute intervals (more typically every 15 minutes). The data collected is sent in report form via email, FTP, SFTP, FTPS or queried directly via MySQL.
The data collected can include measurement points for:
• Building Management and Energy Management systems
• IOT Sensors
• Presence detection
• EDGE / REST / MQTT
• Variable speed drives HVAC systems
• Gas / Electricity / Water and Biomas meters
• Humidity / Temperature sensors
• Power usage meters
• Output drives for fans
• HVAC systems
• Heating and cooling parameters
• And many more sensors, systems and plant
The device also provides a Trend BMS network diagnostic (metadata) report via a specially created profile. This functionality can prove to be very useful where the building or estates BMS network may not be reliable and therefore faults can be pinpointed and rectified.
Available in 500 / 1000 / 2000 / 4000 / 6000 input point variants and are fully compatible with our SIPslice M-Bus and SIPslice Serial products making it even easier to integrate your building plant and systems.
