Fault Detection

The Entronix Energy Management Platform is the next step in energy management – in addition to allowing users to track and visualize up-to-the-second building performance, EMP can identify and alert building engineers of problems as soon as they occur, or in many cases, even before. Operational issues like HVAC malfunctions can be flagged and addressed at the first sign of trouble, rather than after failures have already resulted in lost revenue or upset tenants.

Because fault detection needs are varied, Entronix provides three different tiers: instant alarming, fault-detection rules, and artificially intelligent expert systems.

Alarms

Alarms can be attached to any point in the system to alert users of problems as soon as they occur. When a point exceeds a given level, drops below a threshold, or leaves a specified range, users can receive an email or text message alerting them of the issue. On top of these basic conditions, alarms can be configured to alert the user when more complex conditions occur, such as when a building is approaching a new peak demand value.

Expert Systems

Rules expand upon alarms, giving users a simple tool to detect issues using more sophisticated criteria. Using a simple point-and-click interface, users can quickly create rules that combine any number of conditional statements along with any stipulations (for example, that the conditions remain valid for more than some time, or according to a schedule). Points can be compared to each other, values, user-created calculations, or any combination of the three.

Rules

Expert Systems provide users with the most sophisticated fault detection possible. A single expert can analyze dozens of points at once and use historical point values in addition to real-time values to make it’s decision. This allows the expert system to monitor how far a point deviates from the typical, when a point reaches a new maximum or minimum, when consumption patterns vary from a building’s norm, and more.


Software Features

Consumption View

View your building’s consumption in simple, easy-to-understand visualizations, side-by-side with other factors like weather.

Points View

View details on every single point in the system, along with the logic, calculations, alarms, detected faults and visualizations relevant to that point.

Controller View

Controller View offers a behavioral overview of devices not generally considered meters. Users are able to confirm that equipment is being used efficiently, as well as monitor other sensors in the building.

Energy Dashboards

Create dashboards from templates or from scratch. These can be private to a user or shared to anyone in the world via public URL and QR code links.

Analysis & Reporting

EMP offers a number of different reports designed to help you better understand how your building is using energy. Any report can be scheduled to run periodically and send out the results by email.

Portfolio Manager

System can easily “stitch” together water, electrical and gas data from multiple buildings for EUI analysis, Analytics and much more.

Energy Star Integration

All information currently listed on an Energy Star account can be imported into EMP. This includes all buildings listed and all meters associated with said buildings.

Billing

Entronix helps you bill your tenants for energy usage by pulling consumption data directly from the meters themselves.
