The facility and building automation application is characterised by heterogeneous system structures. A wide variety of building functions and systems from different manufacturers are brought together across properties on a neutral platform with a uniform user interface.
The critical advantage of FIS#facility is its ability to link the different types of system. This challenge is solved with its comprehensive reservoir of communications protocols. Bringing the different building functions and systems together enables the user to technically manage them centrally. Consumption data, operational data and fault messages converge in a database. The heterogeneous system structure can be monitored, controlled and operated in an efficient way. Continuous maintenance concepts and strategic system planning ensure effective and sustainable operation of the system. Information stored in the database is available to ERP (enterprise resource planning) and CAFM (computer aided facility management) systems and are used within the framework of service charge settlements, ordering, maintenance and strategic company planning, etc.
The actual state of building automation is characterised by numerous stand-alone systems. Regardless of system type, FIS#facility allows the manufacturer-neutral and cross-property integration of the individual systems. Common communications protocols include BACnet, EIB, LON, M-Bus, OPC, Profibus, S7, S-Bus, XML/SOAP, etc.
