Charlotte, NC - January 20, 2010 – Activelogix LLC, a leading provider of Internet-based enterprise automation solutions, announced their planned participation in the AHR EXPO January 25-27 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The AHR EXPO is the world's largest HVAC&R event and is held annually in conjunction with the ASHRAE Winter Conference. Activelogix will be exhibiting in Booth #1013 at the show. Following the successful launch of their Periscope™ Enterprise Dashboard in 2009, the firm will be unveiling the third and latest release of the product, which includes many new features and capabilities.
Periscope™, built on the Niagara Framework®, is a user-configurable, web-based dashboard application that provides rapid identification of real-time and historical trends in key attributes of multi-facility operation, including energy use, operational efficiencies and critical metrics. Created using Adobe® Flex rich internet application (RIA) tools, Periscope is the first application of its kind to meet the diverse and changing needs of all end users, from “the boiler room to the board room.”
Unlike conventional business dashboards, Periscope employs a library of special purpose “viewlet” agents which can be configured “on-the-fly.” Periscope is unique in its ability to process and integrate a wide array of data feeds from both the control network and the business network as well as other sources. The ability for each user to insert, configure, and modify specific viewlets to customize their individual dashboard allows for the facility data to be presented in formats that can be utilized by the widest possible audience including facility and energy engineers, sustainability managers, tenants ,students and executives. A growing library of viewlets is available for additional views, analyses and special purpose applications.
“Since our initial introduction of Periscope at the ASHRAE Winter Conference in January, 2009, we have experienced dramatic market enthusiasm for this product.” remarked Greg Barnes, VP of Business Development for Activelogix. “Periscope is now licensed for hundreds of locations world-wide, and is deployed across all major market segments, including schools, universities, municipalities, military bases and commercial entities. During the past year we have dramatically expanded Periscope with the addition of new viewlets and ease of use features.. The inherent ability for Periscope users to configure, modify and maintain their own personal dashboards has been a major factor in the acceptance of this product.”
Periscope utilizes the proven NiagaraAX security model and includes a “Discovery & Mapping Wizard” to access control network data from Niagara, MODBUS® , BACNet or hybrid configurations. This feature enables Periscope to easily be overlaid on existing building networks without modification to the underlying control logic or database. Periscope integrates real-time and historical data available in a Vykon® AX Supervisor or similar NiagaraAX versions from Honeywell, Johnson Controls. Schneider/TAC and Siemens.
Jack Berryhill, President of Activelogix, commented “We believe Periscope will further enhance the ability of our Solution Partners to offer the most cost effective solution to protect an owner's prior automation investments, reduce installation time on projects and improve ROI, particularly in enterprise class installations. With new user-nominated features that include direct Baseline and Year-over-Year comparisons, Periscope has become an even better tool for measuring and documenting results from capital investments.” Additional new features in kiosk mode, provide users with the ability to foster awareness of sustainability goals, review contest results and broadcast energy success stories.
The latest release of Periscope is being introduced at the AHR Expo, held in conjunction with the Winter ASHRAE Conference and is available for review in the Activelogix Booth #1013. Periscope will be marketed through a network of distributors, contractors and consultants throughout the US. For additional information contact the Periscope team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
