P4A’s Movicon Building Automation Software the Open, Flexible & Low Cost Way to Cut Facilities Management Costs.
Products 4 Automation’s Movicon™ BA Building Automation software is the 21st century solution to cutting building operating costs, and to providing facilities managers with the benefits of centralised monitoring of their real estate assets.
Offering all the open benefits of an XML- based solution, Movicon BA is an all-in-one, powerful, visualisation and control software that enables managers to integrate building features such as climate, lighting, security, electrical distribution, fire detection, lifts and other systems, and to control and monitor them centrally. This control can be across single or multi- sites with an integrated web client providing secure, reliable and easy access from anywhere in an enterprise.
Integrating all the proven flexibility, scaleability, functionality and connectivity benefits of P4A’s Movicon 11 SCADA package, Movicon BA is characterised by its open architecture, which allows easy integration of building automation protocols such as LonWorks, BACnet and Modbus, and its intuitive graphics that enable end users and independent system integrators to quickly develop and deploy building management solutions.
In developing solutions with Movicon BA the systems integrator benefits from all the powerful functionality typical of SCADA systems, but with remarkably enhanced visualisation potentialities. The developer is provided with a powerful object-oriented environment, with powerful management for alarms, historical logs in DBMS (ie. SQL Server, Oracle, MsAccess), trends, scenarios, schedulers and control logic. All of these facilities are ready-to-use and provided in one powerful, but very simple-to-use, programming environment.
Movicon BA also delivers the key advantage of hardware independency. This means that BA systems can be integrated into any type of architecture, such as Desktop PCs, Media Centers, Tablet PC, Touch Panels. In addition, advanced facilities also enable users to access their systems through the web, using any internet Browser or Java phone, from wherever they may happen to be in the world.
Importantly, for developers using the system, creating BA supervision projects with Movicon™ BA is simple and fast. A powerful object- oriented editor allows developers to create graphical interfaces with animated and interactive screen pages, using the full range of vector graphics, or integrators can even apply their own BMP, GIF and JPG drawings. In addition, pre-configured graphics libraries, communication drivers, alarm management, historical logs and control, event scheduling, trends and charts are all integrated into the user- friendly software environment.
Complementing its many operational advantages Movicon BA is also cost effective. The software requires just the one development environment for all supervision and control systems, saving a great deal in learning, training personnel and maintenance costs. Moreover, Movicon™ BA licenses are scalable, flexible and upgradeable to Movicon™11, contributing even further to development and maintenance cost reductions.
