SAUTER Vision Center 6.2 impresses with new functions and offers excellent user-friendliness with a completely new dashboard, extended energy management and improved navigation. The energy monitoring system now includes data and meter management, making the work of the energy officer even more efficient and easier than before.
SAUTER Vision Center is web-based. It is available via tablet, smartphone or desktop and thus provides all users with customised, relevant information wherever they happen to be. Building managers who are responsible for multiple buildings or dispersed premises, and are on the move a lot, appreciate a management dashboard that is available everywhere and at all times.
The powerful, sustainable SAUTER Vision Center building management system offers the user greater convenience and reliability along with excellent plant availability. At the same time, the workload is reduced and processes such as energy management or the maintenance of one or more plants are simplified and optimised in terms of both energy and cost efficiency.
The building life cycle is successively extended because SAUTER Vision Center identifies potential for improvement in the operation of the plant, and the building operator can thus utilise this potential early on.
The dashboard enables individual overview pages to be created for different user groups. The dashboard has a responsive design that reacts to the size of the respective screen and adjusts accordingly. This means that on mobile devices with smaller displays, as well as on the screens in a command centre and standard PC screens, the display of the SVC dashboard is optimised for clarity. The dashboard is created by the respective user with freely selectable layout defaults and various predefined widgets for KPI symbols, charts, alarm information and much more, and is stored in SVC. Thus, user-specific information is available immediately at first glance. Within the dashboard layout, the individual widgets can be arranged and reorganised using drag and drop. This enables individual views for plant operators, energy managers and other user groups.
The new functional area offers an optimised overview of all meters and calculations and of the building information used in the energy monitoring. Existing values can be corrected, additional values added and formulas adjusted directly on the overview page. For example, the total energy consumption and the energy costs calculated from this are therefore immediately available. If meter values are corrected or formulas adjusted, a recalculation of the meter values and related formulas is triggered. As a result, the consumption and the final results are also corrected.
In SAUTER Vision Center 6.2 it is possible to switch between four different navigation areas:
The favourites function in SVC 6.2 enables the user to create their personal selection of the most important accesses and easily call them up at any time. This innovation has proven itself in topic-specific applications in which a user is responsible for certain areas of the building management, for example, which they access more often than others. If multiple experts are working on a plant, they can make defined views such as charts, object lists, alarm lists and dashboards available to other users and assign them to the individual navigation areas for direct access. This ensures team-oriented, fast and thus time-saving working methods.
Another practical aspect is that the user has the option to completely hide the navigation in their personal view. This function is perfectly suited to plant and building navigation in full-screen mode with tablets and touch screens.
