Design and Implementation of Labview Based Monitoring System for Building 4 Utilizing CompactRIO
Team Member(s): Asa Furman, Cortez Ashley Semester: Fall 2011
This project is concerned with the creation and implementation of a building monitoring system for Building 4 on the UWF Pensacola Campus. The goal for the final product is a comprehensive monitoring solution that collects and presents in a user friendly format data such as real time energy and water usage, weather and indoor/outdoor environmental conditions.
The project utilizes the Compact RIO as an interface with the Siemens building management equipment which controls the vital functions for building 4. Data is fed to Labview over the network and used to generate a Virtual Instrument (VI) front panel summarizing indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, energy usage data, and water usage data.
