Application & Package Solutions

HVAC Site Monitoring and Control

AltaStream Energy Management provides effective energy control solutions for existing HVAC infrastructures. The AltaStream Em Solutions for HVAC application is able to cover one or more sites without the need for installing any wired infrastructure or changing site specific floor plans. The remotely managed solution quickly generates savings without a large startup cost or maintenance fee. An Em Solution can be employed in office buildings, schools, public buildings, terminals, prisons, universities and hospitals or another building with existing HVAC infrastructure.

Each solution is sized to the number of zones or thermostats currently being used and includes both the Em Intelligent Devices needed to monitor and control zones and the Em Site Controller that connects the Wireless MeshScape Network to the Internet and a remote server running the Em Manager.

The Em Manager has HVAC specific functions and algorithms to provide control, analysis, and optimize energy use, and user comfort, generating savings from lower energy use. The HVAC functions in the software can manage the set-points of each individual thermostat (zone), based on occupancy, external temperature, and time required to reach a set-point temperature. Heating and cooling set-points for each zone are centrally scheduled, cover 24 hours per day and 365 days, with 15 minute increments, and can be changed on demand. The solution provides time stamped temperature readings, and indicators of the equipment activation (fan, heat, cool) or overrides. All zones / sensors are continuously monitored by Em Manager, which can alert operators, using visual and audio alarms or email alerts, when zones show temperature reading outside specified comfort zones, or when a sensor goes off-line.

This Software is licensed on a monthly basis as a browser based Software-as-a-Service, or as a Managed Service. From its built in database, the Management Software can provide tables, graphics, and reports with key metrics and benchmark values. Hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly information is available, allowing for cross period and cross site comparisons.

Energy Sub-Metering – Site Monitoring and Control Solutions

The AltaStream Energy Management Solution (Em) for Energy Sub-Metering applications is able to cover one, or multiple sites, without the need for installing any wired infrastructure or changing site specific floor plans. These remotely managed solutions quickly generate savings without a large startup cost or maintenance fee. The Em Intelligent Devices can be positioned on existing circuits regardless of where they are in a building, and can be moved from one location to another within a building, or from one building to another, providing greater monitoring flexibility than with the wired solutions currently available in the market.

Each solution is sized to the number of Wiring Cabinets and lines that will be monitored and includes both the Em Intelligent Devices needed to monitor and control zones and the Em Site Controller that connects the Wireless MeshScape Network to the Internet and a remote server running the Em Manager.
A unique feature of this solution is the Wireless Local Energy Meter (Wi-LEM), a pre-wired split core current transformer which enables installation without the need to disconnect the primary cable. The Wi-LEM is compact in size to facilitate retro-fitting it to existing wiring cabinets with limited space and is calibrated at fabrication. Wi-LEM provides more information than a traditional sub-meter by measuring active and reactive energy, maximum current and minimum voltage.
The Em Manager is Sub-Metering specific, and uses specialized algorithms to provide analysis of key indicators like active and reactive energy, current and voltage, power factors, and energy usage and demand. This Software is licensed on a monthly basis as a browser based Software-as-a-Service, or as a Managed Service. From its built in database Em Manager can provide tables, graphics, and reports with key metrics and benchmark values. Hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly information is available, allowing for cross period, cross site and cross system comparisons.

Utility Metering Analysis – Site Monitoring and Control Solutions

The AltaStream Energy Management Solution (Em) for Utility Metering Analysis is designed to provide real-time base-line management and verification information for use by Managers of office buildings and commercial properties. This Solution accurately measures electrical, water, or gas consumption. Wireless Pulse Meters are Em Intelligent Devices that can be positioned on existing meters, regardless of where they are in a building, can be moved from one location to another within a building, or from one building to another, providing greater monitoring flexibility than with any other solution currently available in the market.
The Em Manager is Electric, Gas, or Water Metering specific, and uses specialized algorithms to provide analysis of real-time information on demand and consumption. Alerts are automatically generated if real-time values exceed predefined limits. This Software is licensed on a monthly basis as a browser based Software-as-a-Service, or as a Managed Service. From its built in database, the Em Manager can provide tables, graphics, and reports with key metrics and benchmark values. Hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly information is available, allowing for cross period and cross site comparisons.
