)-- QA Graphics, a leading source of design services for the building automation and green building industries, is pleased to announce that they will be showcasing their HVAC design services and award-winning Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard® at the 2012 AHR Expo.
QA Graphics will demonstrate their capabilities at booth 3729 at the AHR Expo, which will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, January 23- January 25. They will present how energy dashboards can creatively communicate building performance to occupants in the new product technology theater at 4:30, Tuesday January 24. At their booth QA Graphics will showcase:
BAS Graphic Outsourcing: QA Graphics can create BAS graphics for any type of building automation system, experienced with Alerton, Andover, Automated Logic, Computrols, Delta, Distech, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Inc., KMC Controls, Reliable Controls, Siemens Building Technologies, Teletrol, Tridium and Trane.
HVAC 3D Development: 3D design specialists provide custom 3D design and animation services for equipment modeling, building/site renders, 3D walkthroughs and other custom solutions.
3D Equipment Graphic Library: A library of high-end graphics that can be used in existing BAS software to accurately represent popular product lines including York, Carrier, Trane, McQuay, Liebert, Ingersoll, Baltimore Aircoil Company, Buderus, Cleaver Brooks, Murray and AAON. Mechanical equipment includes air compressors, boilers, cooling towers, air handing units, rooftop units, generators, pumps, electrical and other miscellaneous components.
Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard: Energy dashboard solution used to educate about a building’s sustainable initiatives and display building performance information to create occupant awareness and help encourage them to help conserve resources. QA Graphics has created several solutions that complement existing building automation systems to communicate the real-time information in a way that’s easy for everyone to understand:
• Gateway for BAS Devices or Meters: A fully programmable controller that can communicate with any BAS and acts as another device node using the BACnet IP, BACnet MS/TP, or Lon communication protocols.
• Web Interface for JCI Metasys®: Web interface streamlines the integration process with Johnson Controls Inc.’s Metasys building management system and eliminates the need for additional hardware. It takes advantage of the MSEA Secure Data Access DLL to securely access the Metasys system extended architecture (MSEA) data, and handles the entire JCI point configuration, MSEA login, MSEA data retrieval, and the formatting of the returned data for display.
• Module for Niagara AX®: A licensed module file that works exclusively with a Niagara AX device, and acts as the gateway between the building automation system and energy dashboard application.
BAS/HVAC Symbol Library: Library set includes graphics and animations needed to construct more than 95% of all mechanical systems. Symbols include boilers, chillers, dampers, filters, piping, fans, cooling towers, generators, valves, ductwork, coils, and more.
Drafting Services: Drafting services can range from 2D, 3D, and photorealistic designs, created from existing AutoCAD files, PDFs, sketches, or anything with an image.
Interactive Solutions: Creative services including Flash development, mobile applications for Apple iOS (iPhone/iPad/iTouch), Android and BlackBerry devices, touchscreen application design, kiosk development, and other multimedia solutions.
QA Graphics has also recently announced the development of a new partner program, which clients may join for a low annual fee. The partner program allows the resale of QA Graphics’ products and services, with the ability to meet ROI on just one Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard project annually, as well as significant discounts on QA Graphics’ other design capabilities.
