Polaris 3DTM is Encelium's latest lighting control software for the company’s energy control system. The application provides users with a single 360-degree, three-dimensional navigation in a multi-floor view of the entire facility's lighting energy use, according to the company. Using Microsoft's Silverlight technology, Polaris 3D will permit access to the system via a simple web browser, eliminating the need for software installation for increased security, faster set-up and start times, and easier integration with other web-based building control systems, according to the company.
The software offers a color gradient map of various data, including power density or energy consumption. It also enables facility managers to group floors, rooms or even desks into zones, which are then controlled as a unit. Polaris 3D is also able to change light levels anywhere in a complex, modify default levels and set lighting time schedules.
