The 2.1 version of Wattstopper Segment Manager adds an intuitive and robust user interface that allows for easy viewing, organizing and scheduling of lighting control systems and related energy usage. The interface is designed to be an effective management tool to help building owners, facility managers and electrical engineers optimize building performance and reduce energy costs with valuable information on each space and visual history on the site’s operation.
New to the lighting controls industry is the tile-based user interface that allows users to easily group controls by room, area, floor and building into their desired view. Also unique is Segment Manager’s ability to automatically populate tiles into the dashboard when integrated into the DLM system. There is no special programming required for set up. Additional features and benefits include:
- Real-time analytics: Receive important current usage information per tile, such as total kilowatts, watts per square foot, occupancy state and alerts.
- Integrated demand response functionality: Initiate demand response with a single button push. This capability is especially relevant in California for meeting Title 24 requirements.
- Improved scheduling: View schedules for each day, week or month. Events show the start and stop time via colored event bars.
- Tablet and smartphone friendly: Access Segment Manager 2.1 Graphical User Interface (GUI) from any PC, tablet or smartphone with a Web browser.
The Segment Manager can be used as a stand-alone solution, or extended into an even more powerful system with the Wattstopper LM Supervisor package. This option adds the capability to easily manage multiple Segment Manager installations across a site and enables long-term historical trending for benchmarking measurement and verification.
In addition, the expanded Wattstopper Groups programming capability marks a significant update to the DLM architecture. Control specialists now have new ways to combine loads throughout a facility for control by any selection of DLM devices. Enabling complete flexibility for zone-based, room-based, or load-based control, Groups allow loads in any networked areas to operate together on a schedule, sensor, or switch for greater convenience.
