Electrical design software

Design Master Electrical 8.0Design Master Software has improved support for 3-D-BIM in Design Master Electrical 8.0, which can now export an IFC file for 3-D collision detection. This software runs inside AutoCAD and its 3-D model now includes conduits, cable trays, and vertical panel clearances, which are exported as 3-D solids in the IFC file. This software update also includes a material takeoff feature available to all users, equipment sizing based on MCA and MOCP, an improved voltage drop schedule, a command to update all schedules on the drawing, a toggle to hide devices in one-line diagram, a command to join broken circuits, and motor voltage options above 600 V.

Data center management software

StruxureWareSchneider Electric’s StruxureWare for data centers is a second-generation, vendor-neutral management software suite that enables an integrated view of the physical systems of the data center to provide data gathering, monitoring and automation, and planning and implementation functionalities. From a single point of access, it provides intelligent monitoring, automation, planning, and reporting on critical facility management systems. This software consists of seven applications that provide users with multiple options to create and share management dashboards, from detailed reports on single assets to broader perspectives for global operations. The dashboards offer multisite options to support comparisons and corporate energy governance activities.

Building efficiency system

PanoptixPanoptix is a combination of software and services designed by Johnson Controls to monitor and improve building performance for any size facility. The software includes an open technology platform for collecting and managing data from disparate building systems and other data sources, as well as a suite of cloud-hosted building efficiency applications that work with any building management system. The system includes four applications that detect abnormal energy consumption, track energy usage and carbon emissions, create energy baseline models, and provide comparative analysis. With Panoptix, the company provides building and energy services to help customers implement operational improvements and energy-savings measures on-site, online, and by phone.
