Development Partnership with Schneider Electric
Charlotte, NC – June 5, 2014 – Activelogix LLC, is pleased to announce Schneider Electric has won the Lightfair International LFI Innovation Awards® in the category of Controls, Building Integration, Site Automation and Distribution Systems for Energy Insight™.
In 2012, Activelogix working in unison with the lighting controls division of Schneider Electric began work on a new Periscope viewlet capable of displaying extensive circuit-level consumption information from one or multiple Schneider Electric panels.
This development program enables Schneider Electric clients and new or current Periscope users to upgrade their existing electric panel boards and gain access within Periscope’s extensive visualization capability to drill down to individual circuit data for current and/or historical usage, as well as combine individual circuits from multiple panels into “virtual” zones for enhanced analysis throughout a facility or enterprise.
This new product is sold and distributed by Schneider Electric through selected channels, including Activelogix LLC of Charlotte, NC, the developer of Periscope. Marketed by Schneider Electric under the product name Energy Insight™, and combining industry-leading circuit zoning capabilities, energy data analytics and a customizable dashboard, the Measurement and Verification Panel boards with Energy Insight provide facility and energy managers with more detailed visibility into energy use information. This new capability enables them to better understand how various lighting and plug load energy conservation measures perform, in turn allowing for improved energy management and opportunities for cost savings and sustainability efforts.
Since the introduction of Periscope in 2008, Activelogix has continued to add visualization apps (Viewlets) and advanced features to the core application. The availability of Energy Insight by Schneider Electric is a major addition to the product line’s offerings.
Periscope™ continues to be one of the most requested Facility Dashboards on the market today to enable smart analysis and visualization of energy and resource consumption data. Now with localization, Periscope supports eight languages and is operational in over 15 countries worldwide. Licensed for thousands of locations since its introduction in 2008, Periscope has become the leading choice of discerning clients, owners, and operators in commercial, municipal, military and educational environments.
