Crestron's Fusion EM software for energy management and control
25 July 2013
Crestron says its Fusion EM software is a 'complete energy management solution' for organisations of any size from schools and universities to corporate enterprises
Crestron says Fusion EM tracks the carbon footprint of an organisation while giving control to 'easily change and schedule temperature set points, lighting levels and demand response settings'.
The company further states that Fusion EM saves energy by automatically turning off lights and reducing HVAC use in unoccupied spaces.
The Crestron Fusion platform is a scalable framework which provides the basis on which to monitor and manage lighting, energy, and AV, while providing the tools for remote help desk, room scheduling and asset tracking.
Fusion expands on the established Crestron RoomView Server Edition (SE) platform by upping the ante with its scalable redundant architecture and multiple front-end components: Fusion RV and Fusion EM.
Fusion RV software, which provides AV, help desk, meeting scheduling and technology management, is the upgrade path from RoomView SE. The all-new Fusion EM provides energy management and tracking. Both front-end components coexist on the same server platform and share the same architecture.
Fusion EM tracks all your lighting loads and provides a bar graph showing realtime and historical energy consumption. Click on a group or individual room to view real time and historical energy usage. View by day, week, month or year and compare numbers to the previous time period. Project future consumption by simply viewing future periods.
Fusion EM estimates energy-use data based on lighting fixture information or takes advantage of real data collected by GLPP, GLPAC, GLS-EM-MCU or other energy metering devices. Call upon predetermined rules that are followed during peak consumption to cut down energy usage by a facility.
Quickly adjust heating and cooling set points, change the timeout setting for an unoccupied room and edit maximum brightness of lighting levels. When the demand response mode is activated, Fusion EM ensures each room is overridden according to the demand response settings.
Fusion EM prepares rooms for meetings so it's comfortable and ready to do business. Adjusting pre-meeting settings is simple from the intuitive GUI. Dropdown menus provide temperature set points and lighting presets; simply make a selection then choose how many minutes before the meeting you want it to take effect. If the meeting is cancelled, there's no need to tell the room. Once occupancy is undetected after the timeout period, then it returns to the vacated state.
Make global adjustments to every room in your facility with Fusion EM. Choose a group and change the occupied/vacant settings, pre-meeting rules, end of day events, and demand response for the floor, building, or even the entire campus.
