SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 – Nuremberg, Germany – November 22, 2011 – ICONICS, a Microsoft® Gold Certified Partner of the Year and provider of Web-enabled, industrial visualization software for Microsoft Windows® operating systems, announced the release of Energy AnalytiX™ version 10.61, a complete set of applications for monitoring energy Cost, Consumption and the discharge of Carbon into the environment.
 

Energy AnalytiX provides an easy-to-deploy calculation, aggregation, analysis and visualization tool set that delivers the information facility managers need to take decisive action, to reduce and manage utility costs and to minimize carbon footprints. Users gain insight into energy consumption patterns and can access information from the control room, office, home or phone, as visualization is delivered via the latest Web 2.0 and Microsoft Silverlight® technologies.

Energy AnalytiX is an off-the-shelf Energy Management System (EMS) that focuses on energy data analysis to increase efficiency and reduce overall operational costs. It helps with improving energy usage patterns, monitoring energy reliability, and even forecasting energy consumption. Managers of commercial or government buildings, campuses and industrial plants have a revolutionary, smart, Web-based energy solution that is easy to apply, configure and operate. Built on BACnet and OPC communication standards, Energy AnalytiX provides universal data connectivity and integration to a wide variety of BMS systems, building equipment and meters.

Energy AnalytiX features include:
 
• Built-in Energy Cost, Consumption and Carbon Calculations
• Efficient Collection, Recording and Calculation of Energy Data
• Intuitive Visualization and Analysis of Energy Performance
• Drill Down into Causes of Abnormal Energy Use
• Easy Deployment of, and Connection to, Most BMS and Metering Systems
 
Energy AnalytiX version 10.61 offers the following enhancements:
• Advanced Energy Data Aggregation & Summarization 
  -  New “Virtual” Meter Type for Calculated Meters
  -  New Grouping Support for Meter Types
• External Data Import and Processing
• Summary Calculations Now Available at 15-minute Granularity
• UI Improvements in Various Workbench Configuration Dialogs
• Optimized Calculation Performance
 
When overconsumption is suspected, users can navigate to the primary causes of energy inefficiency or use rollup calculations to easily analyze groups of consumers within the same dimension. Users can create custom KPIs and visualization dashboards, as well as specialized reports using Energy AnalytiX. Reports can be scheduled based on Date, Time, Value, Alert or on User Ad-hoc Requests. Operators can be notified of energy issues via SMS, Email, or Phone Alerts.

“Energy AnalytiX provides a global view of an entire enterprise, but also empowers users to drill all the way down to individual zones for pinpoint analysis,” said Melissa Topp, Product Marketing Manager at ICONICS. “The real power of the solution is how data can be normalized by driving variables such as runtime, occupancy, square foot, or OAT, so that the information presented is always comparative and meaningful, in a context that makes sense.”
