Trend Controls has launched a new version of its energy-management software, Trend Energy Manager v2.0. It has numerous enhanced features to enable building owners and managers to investigate how they are using energy and devise strategies to reduce carbon emissions and save money.

Designed to maximise the potential of an existing BMS, Trend Energy Manager v2.0 can be installed on a company’s own server or be remotely hosted through the Trend Energy Solutions & Support Team.

Once connected, it will browse the BMS and produce a list of systems meters and sensors from which the data-collection points can be selected. Using meter readings and other variables provides automatic reporting and allows rapid diagnosis of energy misuse.

This software allows a wide range of plant items, such as meters, sensors, pumps and boilers, to be incorporated and plotted.To identify cause and effect for energy use in a building, a change of setpoint can be logged and the effects followed through the enabling of the plant and, in turn, the energy consumed.

Another significant development is the ability to interact with and collect data from third-party devices. The Trend Open Protocol Server (TOPS) application provides interoperability with BACnet-configured devices and Trend Open Network Nodes (TONN), which enable third-party controllers to interact directly with the system. This latest software supports several browsers and also tablet and smartphone browsers, Including the Apple iPad and iPhone. The software is simple to install and configure via a DVD.
