Ankeny, IA, United States, 2011/04/20 - QA Graphics, an industry leader in the design of BAS graphics, offers custom BAS graphic solutions to make system graphics more interactive and easy to navigate.
A core part of QA Graphics’ business is graphic outsourcing, taking mechanical control drawings and creating system graphics for the end user. With this experience, QA Graphics offers custom solutions to help integrators provide their end users with BAS graphics that are interactive and easy to navigate. QA Graphics’ design team of trained mechanical engineers can provide high-end background images that can be used to create a variety of interactive navigations in users’ existing building automation system software. A variety of buttons and 3D images can be created to enable more realistic representation of campus maps, buildings, machinery and floor plans. These images can be used in existing software to create interactive navigations for quick access to view floor plans, equipment details, alarms, temperatures, and more. QA Graphics can develop BAS graphics that can be integrated with existing backgrounds as well as create custom templates which integrators can then use to create interactive navigations.
QA Graphics is experienced with the following building automation systems:
• Automated Logic
• Johnson Controls, Inc.
• KMC Controls
• Reliable Controls
• Siemens Building Technologies
• Tridium AX and R2.
In addition to providing custom BAS graphics, they also have developed the BAS Symbol Library, which offers more appealing and realistic graphics than typically provided with BAS software. It allows users to maintain their existing building automation software while accessing high-end graphics to provide their customers with a nicer looking user interface. This graphics library provides over 310 static graphics and more than 95 animated graphics to construct BAS graphics and HVAC graphics. Key symbols include boilers, chillers, dampers, filters, piping, fans, cooling towers, generators, valves, ductwork, coils and more, allowing users to create more than 95% of all mechanical systems.
For most BAS software, the library is provided for unlimited use by one physical company location and may be used by additional locations for a one-time licensing fee. For users of Tridium NiagaraAX, QA Graphics has developed a module that allows the library to be licensed for use on a PC, Supervisor or JACE. The BAS Symbol Library has been implemented at numerous facilities across the country and several leading control system manufacturers have worked with QA Graphics to develop custom libraries.
