Building management software 
for medium-sized and enterprise building automation projects
NETx Voyager, the professional visualization software
 

As a part of the technical building management, the NETx Voyager is a central visualization software for buildings of any size. Located at the management level, the NETx Voyager acts as an OPC Client to a NETx Server (NETx BMS Server or NETx KNX OPC Server). Nevertheless, the full functionality is only available in combination with the NETx BMS Server. Using NETx Voyager, you can control complex and wide spread installations in a centralized way. Due to its flexibility, you can use the NETx Voyager in a broad range of applications.

Flexible | The client/server architecture provides a versatile platform for visualization projects. Moreover, you can combine the NETx Voyager with any number of NETx BMS Clients. For example, the hotel guest sees just the visualization of his room via a NETx BMS Client. However, the cleaning staff has access to the according floor (also via NETx BMS Clients). The technical employees get an overview of the whole building with the NETx Voyager.
Customizable | You can adapt the level of details and the look of your visualization to your individual needs. You can choose between the following elements: background images - user defined buttons - images - multi-state control elements - web based content (e.g. web cams) - animated images. Due to the scalability of the system you can use it for small projects up to large building projects where a high amount of pages and control elements is required.
Comfortable | Due to the universal interface, data points of any system like KNX, BACnet, Modbus or SNMP  or any application-specific technology (e.g. hotel management, access control) can be shown and controlled in one single visualization. The data points are shown in the visualization as universal data points. This is done independent of the underlying technology. It is not necessary to deal with the characteristics of the underlying system when preparing the visualization.
PC based visualization

Functions

Standard functions*
All functions of the NETx BMS Clients are also available in the NETx Voyager.
Extended trending

In addition to the trending function of the NETx BMS Clients, further functionalities are available in the NETx Voyager. The trend can be activated or deactivated during runtime by the user - you do not have to change the configuration of the NETx BMS Server. Moreover, you have the opportunity to arrange data points with activated trending to a trending group in order to show them in a trending graph.  To be able to compare tending groups, it is possible to show several tending graphs simultaneously.  According to the requirements, trends can be configured within a trending group and time intervals can be fixed. Trends can be removed from a trending group at any time if they are not needed any longer.

Extended smart metering

In addition to showing consumption values in the Metering Chart, values can be visualized in a table view.  If required, users can print graphs and tables or save them as an Excel file.

Scheduler - Server calendar
The calendar module of the NETx BMS Server is also available in the NETx Voyager. Thus calendar entries and time based events can be administered from any NETx BMS Client as well as from NETx Voyager instances.
Alarm management*

The NETx Voyager has an extensive alarm mechanism, which allowes you to define alarms. If an alarm condition is fulfilled, you will be informed. This alarm appears in a pop-up window or on a separate alarm page. Additionally, notification via e-mail or SMS is possible. By using alarm lists, alarms and their states can be monitored, acknowledged or suppressed. Changes of alarm states will be recorder for you in an alarm log file. 

Adding control functions*
If the existing control functions of the field and automation level are not sufficient, you can add the missing functions with the NETx Voyager on the management level - Eventor and Processor are avaiable for this. The Eventor is  a user friendly solution to change data points based on different time- or value-based conditions. If the Eventor is not sufficient, you can integrate predefined or user-specific VBA scripts with the Processor. Eventor and Processor are also available in online mode during runtime.
Scene manager*
With the integrated scene manager you are able to specify user-defined scenes. To achieve this, the data points which shall be part of the scene have to be assigned to the scene. You can also define a data point that starts the recording of scene or one that starts replaying the saved scene - both mechanisms can be triggered directly. It is possible to use real and virtual data points (which are only available in the visualization) within the same scene.
Extended control elements*
In addition to the standard elements like buttons, sliders and images, extended control elements are available.
  • Charts with different types of graphs can be used for the visualization of historical data.
  • Historical Data Table to show historical values in a table.
  • Multi-controls are especially suitable to show elements that are depending on a data point`s value e.g. Multi-Text, Multi-Picture or Multi-Internet.
  • An RGB control is available for colour changes of LEDs.
  • Polygon for the definition of any arbitrary link area
Main/backup
The NETx Voyager can also be integrated into a main/backup solution (see NETx BMS Server)

* Functions independent from NETx BMS Server: standard functions, scene manager, alarm management, adding control functions, extended control elements
