RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) April 02, 2020
SkyFoundry (https://www.skyfoundry.com) is excited to announce Belimo’s release of the Belimo Clear Edge™ appliance, which is implemented on the SkySpark® Everywhere™ platform. Clear Edge leverages data from BACnet-connected Belimo Energy Valves™ in a Building Automation System (BAS) to automatically monitor, manage and optimize water coil performance and hydronic energy consumption. Clear Edge provides trending capability with automated Delta T setpoint adjustment to increase system efficiency and energy savings strategies. The Clear Edge is built upon the SkySpark platform and is available both as a hardware-based offering from Belimo and as a no-cost software extension for use on existing SkySpark installations. The no-cost software extension can be downloaded via the StackHub.org online store (https://stackhub.org).
Clear Edge can be implemented on-premise and does not require an Internet connection. All analytics and optimization are processed locally on the Clear Edge hardware device or by a local SkySpark instance. The Clear Edge includes a suite of custom Apps built on SkySpark’s View Builder technology: an Energy Dashboard, Coil Power and Delta T Curves, Setpoint Configuration, and an Aggregated System-level view of all Energy Valves in a building. The application also provides automatic discovery of all Energy Valves using SkySpark’s BACnet communications connector.
“The implementation of SkySpark in Belimo’s industry-leading Energy Valve product line provides customers with continuous optimization of performance and demonstrates the power of our SkySpark Everywhere program which enables the full feature set of the SkySpark platform to be embedded at the ‘edge’ in small, low-cost IoT and control devices,” said John Petze, Co-Founder and COO of SkyFoundry.
“The Belimo Clear Edge provides a simplified view of the rich Energy Valve data on the BACnet network, allowing Facility Managers to improve building performance quickly,” states Scott Reed, Product Manager, Energy Valve and Water Performance Devices.
