Data gathered from BMS and EPMS systems are not integrated, and require manual interpretation. We strongly recommend that you keep your existing systems, since FieldView can access and integrate data across all platforms to provide real time, effective, usable information and alarming, while at the same time providing capacity planning for both IT and facilities.
Absolutely! FieldView can be retrofitted into an existing data center with zero down time and zero risk. And with the use of modern wireless technology, installation costs are a fraction of what you might expect.
Because FieldView is non-proprietary and vendor-neutral, retrofitting has proven very successful. We've already deployed hundreds of panels and thousands of circuits with legacy equipment, so it's a proven system. FieldView is able to work with the systems you already have, regardless of manufacturer or communications protocols. We can seamlessly integrate, no matter what language your equipment is speaking
Yes. FieldView is completely scalable from one site to many; from 1,000 points to 100s of thousands of points world-wide. And our unique algorithms can manage and calculate data and efficiency on global, national, state and facility levels. At present, FieldView maintains sites on six continents.
Yes. FieldView communicates on all modern communication technologies including SNMP, (Versions 1, 2 and 3, Secure or Unsecure) MODbus, (RTU, TCP, Function Codes 1-4) OPC, XML, SOAP and BACnet. Our software is non-proprietary and vendor neutral.
Cost is based on the number of points monitored and/or polled. Please contact us for an investment analysis which we think you will find surprisingly affordable.
A point is a single input to the FieldView system. It may be a voltage, a current, a temperature, a liquid level, or any other single piece of data which the system monitors. For example, to determine the wattage load of a server, two ‘points’ would be needed: voltage and current.
NO. FieldView resides entirely on your network with no outside access required. It is completely web based and shares your network security.
The entire FieldView application runs as web pages and is written in XML. It does not require an external link, a remote connection or a special PC. It resides on YOUR corporate network, behind YOUR firewall, and shares YOUR security.
NO. Our data acquisition is in the form of standard current transformers, temperature sensors and digital and analog meters. The data thus gathered are sent directly to the application for processing, logging, interpretation, and distribution.
FieldView provides a complete suite of reports at all levels of your system from circuit level to global. Reports may include energy consumption, efficiency (both IT and mechanical/electric), temperature maintenance, alarms, and all other critical data. Our platform is so user-friendly, you can even customize reports to fit your individual needs.
We think many things set FieldView Solutions apart from the competition. There’s the devoted, attentive and knowledgeable staff, available for customers 24/7. Plus the FieldView platform itself that is vendor and hardware neutral, 100% browser-based, and so user-friendly that many customers are creating their own reports on day two. We think you’ll be pleased with the differences that FieldView brings to your data center.
We suggest you shop around. Look at every data center efficiency product you can find out there. But don’t commit to anything until you talk to us. Remember it’s easy to promise. It’s tough to deliver.
