Delivering for Long-Time Customer

buildingintelligence2_smallerMcKenney’s is demonstrating the power of bdoc® Business Intelligence (BI) for BuildingsTM for new electrical and supporting HVAC systems at a Georgia broadcasting company’s central plant.


The Challenge

The McKenney’s Automation & Control Solutions (ACS) team had previously developed the broadcaster’s bdoc monitoring system for both HVAC and power equipment. As new equipment came online, the ACS team had to design and present the massive amounts of data from generators, electrical switchgear, power monitoring equipment and end-user devices into an easily manageable and visually friendly bdoc interface.


The Solution

To meet the owner’s strict standards, McKenney’s maintained constant communication with all parties involved. Maintenance staff can now use an iPad® to tap into the bdoc portal and troubleshoot electrical and HVAC issues without having to return to the maintenance console. When remote training is held, staff can view the real-time changes in data, status and alarms from an iPad.


The Results

Phase one is nearly complete, and the owner is thrilled with the bdoc capabilities.
