How It Works ...


The BASYX system consists of a PC workstation with the TriComm interface software package. TriComm is a Windows based human interface for the BASYX automation and system. It can operate on any Windows based PC. The operator can use a PC over a local area network, can dial in using a modem, or can connect using an internet address to access and communicate with the controllers. The controllers are linked in order to control HVAC equipment and more.



Using easy to understand point and click commands, the program provides a simple interface to setup, operate and modify the operating parameters of the BASYX system. The drop down system menu allows access to all system functions, and requires little computer experience for normal daily interaction with the system.



Simple status screens for individual controllers show all point statuses and values, and are automatically formatted to match the board type being accessed. The graphical interface portion of the system will compile any system data and indicate operating status of mechanical systems, floor plans, etc. All operator modifications to the system are automatically backed up to the personal computer hard drive in individual board files, and reduce the need to perform scheduled backups of the system data.



Unlike most automation systems which require multiple software programs to be implemented for various connection methods, the TriComm software will access the automation system via a single program directly, modem or internet/intranet connection by simply clicking the appropriate connect button. This feature greatly reduces the operator learning curve by using one software package for all system operation.



The TriComm software package is an integral part of the automation system, and therefore

no licensing or access fees are ever required for installation or use. The software may be installed on any number of personal computers required for access by owner determined personnel.



What It Can Do ...


BASYX control application programs turn complex building system requirements into simple, consistent, reliable operations. BASYX can control virtually any manufacturers’ HVAC or lighting equipment. Here is a sample of our standard applications:



Time of Day Scheduling

BASYX controls equipment for each day maintaining comfort when building is occupied and minimizing energy consumption when the building is not occupied.



Chiller Plant Management

BASYX controls chillers and their related equipment (pumps, values, cooling towers, etc.) to provide needed capacity while optimizing energy requirements.



Control for Smooth, Trouble Free Building Operation ...


BASYX gives you many options for control. Some building professionals want to have BASYX programmed for automatic operation (“set it and forget it”). Others desire more hands on operation, continuously monitoring or controlling every aspect of the building environment. Still others may prefer a level somewhere in between. You can have the amount of control that suits how you work, and BASYX will do the rest.



You Already Know How to Use It ...


Operating BASYX is as easy as surfing the web. Everything you need to know is at your fingertips, including floor plans, equipment schematics and more. With a click of your mouse you can instantly monitor, adjust, open, close, turn on or off, up or down, or check statuses.



The interface is intuitive, so operators can spend time in the building, not learning how to use the building automation system.



Information: When, Where & How You Want It ...


We’ve explained how BASYX’s graphical interface give you instantaneous data on virtually any aspect of your system. The BASYX reports store that information for your use anytime. You can tailor your cost, consumption, and status information to your individual needs.



In depth data from BASYX for troubleshooting and diagnostics can even help operators discover a problem before a major breakdown.



Remote Alarming, Remote Access & Remote Control ...


BASYX software will receive alarms from throughout the system. Alarms are prioritized into multiple levels that you can define, with each alarm transmittable to various places in the system.



BASYX can be programmed to dial out alarms or page you. It can even send email notice of alarms.



Operators do not have to be on site to access BASYX. A standard phone modem allows remote access from any PC workstation, which is password protected. Or, if you prefer, BASYX can be configured into a web based system requiring no special interface connection, only an address. Naturally, sophisticated security helps assure system integrity is uncompromised.



Experience Accounts for a Great Deal ...


A building management system is a major investment. When formulating your analysis, look beyond the initial price tag. Select a team of professionals that will stand by you to help adapt the system to changing business, technological, environment, and regulatory factors.



We know that building professionals seek systems that add value to their facilities for years, or even decades. And in today’s economic climate, you cannot afford to relinquish financial control to someone without your financial interest.



We Keep Pace with Change ...


Over time, your building management system will need to change. You may have to accommodate building expansion or remodeling. Your building’s HVAC load may increase or decrease based on work place trends, including rising computer usage, resizing workforces, or even telecommuting employees. New government regulations may mandate change in the way you operate your building. As a building professional, your system needs to accommodate these changes, rather than buy a new system.



Empowering You for Long Term Savings ...


Economics dictate that managers limit costs, including costs associated with keeping their building management system up to date. BASYX uses frequently used building control strategies as standard application programs. With proven reliability and consistency, it is easy for operators to make modifications without costly reliance on high priced consultants. These programs help assure that your system works- initially and for the long term.



Customers are empowered through quality documentation, online help and training for all aspects of BASYX. You will be taught as much as you need to know, or as much as you want to now, at our corporate headquarters, at your local dealer’s office, or at your building site. You will learn enough to be self sufficient or enough to operate BASYX on a day to day basis. Either way, you are in control.
