VisionTEC – Human Machine Interface

Posted on: September 14th, 2012 by icetec_admin No Comments

VisionTEC is central to our more advanced programs. It is an interactive graphical display application that combines real-time data, historical trending, and site control in a custom windowed environment tailored to the needs of each client.

VisionTEC provides a flexible environment for assessing current and historic activity at a customer’s facility. The interface is used to communicate dispatch signals to operators for changes in operations or for participation in Demand Response initiatives. Detailed screens let clients monitor the market, GHG/CO2 emissions, natural gas and electric fuel breakdown by equipment, hedge usage, weather, and chilled-water flow. Customized engineering reports can be generated easily and all data is real-time.

A number of discrete modules provide extensive insight into operations, efficiencies, and savings tactics.
