Automated Fault Detection
Automated fault detection is one of the most challenging elements for energy management software solutions. Few web-based solutions can diagnose sensor data and use artificial intelligence (technology) to provide a simple, prioritized list of faults. SCIwatch is one of those “few”, providing unmatched visibility into the performance of individual systems. Some call it predictive, since the early indication of subtle performance changes allows engineers to be proactive in allocating resources. It’s not just about the software—our building experts are also on hand to help you troubleshoot and improve building performance.
SCIwatch is provided as part of the iRCx™ solution. It provides visibility to enable SCIenergy and its partners to optimize your building’s performance.
Remotely interfaces with the building automation system (BAS). SCIwatch uses trending data—typically in 5 to 15-minute intervals—to power its diagnostic functions.
SCIwatch compiles data throughout the day, and runs diagnostics daily to reveal operational anomalies, prioritized by energy cost and severity.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enables continuous product enhancements. Our HVAC, lighting, refrigeration, and energy experts continue to innovate and improve diagnostic functions that will automatically be applied on applicable customer buildings.
Energy analysts and buildings experts from SCIenergy and certified partners help maximize SCIwatch’s visibility into building systems, and are available to assist customers.
Technology and Support
SCIwatch is a key application in the SCIenergy cloud™, which is uniquely capable of processing, storing, and visualizing your entire portfolio’s performance data from any web browser. There is no software to download—everything is accessible through an intuitive web interface. SCIwatch uses data from the trending logs of your building automation system (BAS), without interfering with its control functions. SCIwatch-installed hardware, if necessary, utilizes state of the art NiagaraAX Java Application Control Engine (JACE) gateways with open protocol communication device drivers. SCIwatch is an important part of the Intelligent Retro-commissioning™ (iRCx™) process—providing retro-commissioning and systems engineers with visibility into the performance of automated systems to accelerate & amplify savings.
