Managing scenarios autonomously with SAUTER Vision Center

Managing scenarios autonomously with SAUTER Vision Center

Category: Media releases

The building management software from SAUTER now offers a Scenario Manager that is very easy to operate. This and many other new features make SAUTER Vision Center the optimum solution – versatile, intelligent and extremely user-friendly.

SAUTER Vision Center stands for comprehensive building management and visualisation combined with uncomplicated operation. And to keep apace with ever-changing conditions, the SAUTER software solution is continually undergoing new developments. The focus here is on uninterrupted, energy-efficient operation of the installation while ensuring that it remains as easy to handle as possible.

A management solution for all scenarios

The definition of scenarios for the building automation makes an installation much easier to operate. Recurring situations can be pre-defined and assigned to specific time windows. For every other building management software this requires time-consuming engineering work that usually has to be performed by an external specialist. The new SAUTER Scenario Manager enables a plant operator without a great deal of prior experience to define and assign scenarios in SAUTER Vision Center. It works in much the same way as a calendar and is accomplished with just a few clicks. The simple operation enabled by scenarios in SAUTER Vision Center makes the management of installations even more flexible and economical.

Flexible room automation with the SAUTER system family

When combined with the SAUTER ecos504/505 room automation stations and the new SAUTER ecos311 BACnet MS/TP devices, SAUTER Vision Center can handle practically any plant solution. For example, the automation of rooms with an open design. SAUTER Vision Center allows rooms and room segments to be moved and reassigned using drag and drop. Connected rooms are shown in the same colour. Information relevant to rooms can be displayed in a summary or individually for each segment. This means that, in major projects and smaller and medium-sized systems, you benefit from the full range of functions of SAUTER Vision Center.

Clear display for projects of all sizes

The plant display in the latest version of SAUTER Vision Center has been optimised so that you can customise the information to be made visible at a glance. All other information can be stored in a “tool tip”. So when you pass the mouse over a certain part of the system diagram, the other values and information are displayed in a box.

The modular structure of the entire product range from SAUTER enables trouble-free extension of any project. Additional buildings and premises can therefore be added to SAUTER Vision Center at any time, along with further energy management and maintenance modules. So whether you are dealing with a small plant or a large project, as a plant operator you benefit from the same clarity, user-friendliness and flexibility of SAUTER Vision Center. The openness of the web software means that the system can be accessed from anywhere, round the clock.

Weather data and Smart Update

SAUTER Meteo Services now enable weather data to be incorporated and displayed directly in SAUTER Vision Center. And here too the operator can specify weather symbols, backgrounds and other settings individually and adjust them to requirements.

There is also a Smart Update function for the entire range of functions in the software. This ensures that SAUTER Vision Center is continuously available to the user, even if, for example, images are being changed or new data points are being added in the background. This guarantees that the entire installation runs smoothly at all times.
