Sistrol presents BMSlytics, a new model for BMS maintenance
28/02/2020 Madrid / Spain
Sistrol has developed a new tool, based on IoT technology, that changes the current maintenance model of the BMS. Currently, this model is based on regular in site visits, which will evolve towards automatic monitoring of BMS indicators using BMSlytics®.
The progress of the BMS maintenance model has the objective to fill the gap of the current operational needs in buildings. For example:
- To provide full coverage for verifying thousands of points and hundreds of alarms. This verifying processes in site are impossible.
- The need to include alarms analysis on BMS maintenance process, to focus on maintenance staff in the important alarms.
- To minimise service interruption and its severity in anticipation of the BMS possible failures, both installation and on service.
BMSlytics®’ objective is to focus on maintenance staff in the main information that need to be considered. It contains verification of sensors, actuators, alarms, and performance indicators of the BMS system. Due to BMSlytics®, full coverage should be achieved in the verification of sensors and actuators, a reduction of repetitive and or misconfigured alarms and fault detection in the operation of the BMS.
This new maintenance model, based on the Internet of Things, evolves the current reactive maintenance into a condition-based one, which allows a reduction in the time and cost of BMS maintenance, as it puts the focus of technicians on solving specific problems, avoiding routine inspection work.
