75F users can now access and analyze near real-time data from their legacy central plant equipment within 75F Portfolio Analytics Manager (PAM), the data analytics dashboard feature of user portal Facilisight. Combined with data from 75F devices, this expansion paves the way for holistic insight and control over your building's HVAC system, no matter your building's equipment or age.

The expansion comes via a new partnership with Tennessee-based ACE IoT Solutions, a software company leveraging the Pacific Northwest National Labs-developed, open-source Eclipse VOLTTRON unit to acquire and trend data securely. ACE IoT's easy-to-deploy gateways and secure cloud service now provide 75F customers with a low-cost, turn-key solution for trending typically difficult-to-access data into the 75F PAM platform.

"Our customers love the power of 75F Portfolio Analytics Manager — several customers with legacy HVAC equipment in their facilities have asked us if operations data from non-75F equipment is accessible in this platform," said Matt Blount, Director of Strategic Projects at 75F. "Using the open-source VOLTTRON technology, our customers can now apply 75F's suite of visualization and analysis tools to data from all of their most critical facilities equipment." 

With real-time data from legacy equipment in PAM, 75F customers can more holistically leverage the platform's features and tools, including:

  • Visualizing and comparing data across their portfolio, individual sites, zones, and equipment
  • Using pre-configured dashboards for most common functions, including portfolio energy analysis
  • Building their own charts using any data point available through 75F's building intelligence solution
  • Sharing dashboards and widgets with others within or outside their organization through shareable links and embedded iframes
