QA Graphics has released version 3.0 of the Data Manager, an integral component of the award-winning Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard (EEED) solution. The Data Manager is capable of gathering real-time data from multiple buildings across multiple locations, allowing companies to educate guests on their key performance indicators anywhere, anytime.
QA Graphics' EEED solution is used in McDonald's franchisees in California and North Carolina to display to guests the energy-efficient features of the buildings.
The changes from version 2.0 to version 3.0 of the Data Manager are significant. Version 3.0 was developed in the .NET Framework, evolving the traditional solution to a platform. This offers a much more collaborative environment with limitless connectivity. The solution runs leaner and can handle mass amounts of data from an unlimited number of buildings across multiple locations. Now, real-time data can be deployed via touchscreens or kiosks onsite, on the web, and on mobile devices including Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), Android and BlackBerry.
Organizations can incorporate the EEED as part of an ongoing strategy to help building occupants better understand and reduce their energy usage. These enhancements also provide a great opportunity for real-time large-scale energy competitions, social communication and cloud managed data.
QA Graphics offers four different solutions when integrating the Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard to access and display this real-time data. QA Graphics offers a fully programmable controller that can act as the gateway between the building automation system (BAS) or meters.
