Aircuity AdvisorTM Goes International

SI units of measure are now supported

Aircuity is pleased to announce that we have recently completed an upgrade to the Knowledge Center database and Advisor analytics that allows the support of alternate units of measure.
This new capability allows Advisor information to be displayed in either imperial (US) or SI (metric).  The conversion takes place at the “Installed System” (building) level and extends to all Advisor components – Dashblocks, Summary Reports, Smart Notifications, and Graphing and Exporting.
The available units are:
  SI Units of Measure
Temperature    Degrees Celsius
Dewpoint Temperature Degrees Celsius
Humidity Ratio Kilogram water to kilogram dry air
Enthalpy Kilojoules per kilogram
Particles Particles per cubic meter
Flow Cubic meters per hour Liters per second

The selected units of measure will be reflected throughout all the Advisor elements:
  • In appropriate Dashboard components
  • In Smart Notification setup and messaging
  • In Summary Report configuration and report output
  • In Graphing and Exporting selection and graphs and exported data
These new capabilities are available immediately by emailing Aircuity Client Support or calling 866.602.0700.

Aircuity Service Day

Employees sort through
5,254lbs of food

Greater Boston Food Bank

Last month Aircuity held a company-wide Day of Service and volunteered at The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). In addition to volunteering, employees held a food drive at company headquarters collecting canned goods and non-perishables to donate to the food bank during the shift.The month of September was National Hunger Action month therefore GBFB was an ideal agency for Aircuity to perform their first Day of Service.

During their shift employees spent time in the GBFB’s warehouse inspecting, sorting and packing food and grocery products. Upon completion, company volunteers had sorted 5,254 pounds of food, making 3,233 meals possible for families in need. Donations from Aircuity’s food drive will make even more meals possible.

“Aircuity’s Day of Service was a great way for us as a company to give back to our local community,” said CEO Dan Diehl. “I am proud of our employees’ eagerness to participate and the impact that we made during our shift at the food bank.”


University of California, Irvine leading the way with their Smart Lab design

In the last several years the University of California, Irvine has become a leader in reducing campus energy use and has developed best practices to dramatically reduce energy consumption in science and laboratory facilities.These lab spaces are known to be the most the most energy intensive on any college campus. The university has won numerous awards for its work is not only meeting their energy goals, but exceeding them.

How are they achieving all of this? In two words: Smart Labs. With the support of UCI's senior leadership, UCI put together a team including energy management, facilities and EH&S personnel to create the award winning Smart Lab design to significantly and safely reduce energy use in their laboratory buildings. “Our goal was to find the sweet spot where we maximized energy savings without compromising safety," states Marc Gomez, Assistant Vice Chancellor Facilities Management/Environmental Health & Safety.
In order to meet this goal, UCI implemented a demand control ventilation strategy using Aircuity so that air change rates could be adjusted to the real conditions of the lab, providing more air when lab activity required it for safety, and lower air change rates when the lab indoor environment was clean. This demand control ventilation strategy, along with the analytics of Advisor services, became a foundation of the UCI Smart Lab initiative.

In May of 2014 UC Irvine was honored
by the White House for their dramatic energy reductions as part of the Better Buildings Challenge. The university had set a goal to reduce energy use 20% by 2020 within the 7 million square feet of building space they committed to the challenge. Not only did UC Irvine reduce energy use by 23%, but they achieved this reduction 6 years ahead of their plan!

Find out more about the Smart Labs program and  the university's next goals by reading the recently updated case study.
