FAQs

Where does ASPECT collect data from?

ASPECT collects data from the following sources:

  • Sub Meter Data – electricity, gas and water, enabling the client to monitor usage in specific areas of a building (e.g. catering, comms rooms, etc.) or specific items of plant (process load, manufacturing, etc.)
  • Power Quality – check on harmonics, phase balance, power factor, etc.
  • Busbar Temperatures – safety checking
  • Renewable Technologies Output – electricity or heat output from PV or solar thermal installations, wind generation, biomass boilers, CHP etc.
  • Outside Air Temperatures – essential for detailed trend analysis and removing the need to rely on ‘regional’ degree day data
  • Chiller Monitoring – linking to real-time chiller performance monitoring, using Clima Check software
  • BMS Connection – as well as providing remote access to the BMS with command and control capability, the system is used as a portal for the receipt and escalation of BMS alarms, to ensure that they are received, acknowledged and handled promptly, with a log of all such activity
