Facility AnalytiX Provides (FDD) Fault Detection and Diagnostics
 

Las Vegas, NV – AHR Expo – January 31, 2011 – ICONICS, a leading supplier of building and manufacturing automation software, announced Facility AnalytiX™, predictive Facility Intelligence software for facilities management. Facility AnalytiX™ is a building automation solution that uses an advanced Fault Detection and Diagnostics Engine incorporating algorithms that weigh the probability of a fault and advise management, operators and maintenance personnel of actions to prevent equipment failure or excessive use of energy. When equipment failures occur, advanced software technology provides automatic guidance to a list of causes sorted by probability, resulting in reduced downtime and costs to diagnose and repair. ICONICS solutions for fault detection, determination and diagnostics are based on advanced research standardized by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

“Facility AnalytiX predicts critical equipment faults before they occur. If faults do occur in can provide a list of causes sorted by probability, to facilitate quick resolution and minimize downtime. The ability to act on a potential problem results in energy efficiency and a spot on cost savings,” stated Gary Kohrt, ICONICS Vice President of Marketing and Product Marketing. “Adding Facility AnalytiX to the other ICONICS Facility Management solutions, FacilityWorX™ and Energy AnalytiX™, empowers building owners with the latest game-changing software for building automation.”

"I am excited to see the ICONICS’ Facility AnalytiX solution built to leverage the Microsoft technology platform," states Jon Arnold, Managing Director, Worldwide Power & Utilities Industry, Microsoft. "This announcement is a great example of how the breadth of our platform and partnerships make Microsoft uniquely able to integrate disparate ‘silos’ to drive new efficiencies, increase transparency and accelerate innovation.”

The communications infrastructure of Facility AnalytiX is built on industry standards including OPC Classic, OPC Unified Architecture, BACnet, SNMP and Modbus. With this open standards connectivity, you can simply plug Facility AnalytiX into any existing BAS, SCADA or Control network and automatic discovery makes it easy to point to your equipment and start realizing value in no time. Adding power and energy meters is easy as most meter manufacturers support one or more of the standards such as OPC, BACnet or simple Modbus.
