New Desigo Optic building management software from Siemens

Desigo Optic from Siemens

Siemens Smart Infrastructure has launched a new building management software designed to offer an open, powerful and scalable software solution for one to many buildings of any size.

Desigo Optic is powered by FIN framework (developed by Siemens partner company J2 Innovations) and brings the latest IoT technology to buildings such as schools, sports facilities, smaller hotels and retail outlets.

It features a ‘single pane of glass’ interface to visualise and control HVAC, lighting and energy performance functions with a dashboard builder. The open protocol approach ensures easy and seamless integration with Siemens and other third-party building automation systems, IoT devices and IT based applications. Major protocols such as BACnet, Modbus, KNX and OPC are all supported.

Desigo Optic applies Haystack native semantic tagging to ensure harmonisation of data and fast access to critical building information, typically streamlining workflows by a third. Secure Edge2Cloud remote access technology (removing the need for, and the cost of, a VPN) allows ease of access to data, servicing and upgrading, reducing the requirement for site visits. It can be deployed in two ways; either on a server or on an embedded controller.
