Details for most recent release of BuildingFit’s SkySpark pods!

BuildingFit Standard Prog Library v2.5.0

Views: See these in the BuildingFit app.

  • AHU Diagnostics: NEW! Similar to the TU Diagnostic view, but it shows info about AHUs.
  • TU Diagnostics: Adjusted so that when no equip is chosen, all TUs on the entire project are shown.

Reports: See these in the bfitReport folder of the Report app.

  • The following were removed in favor of new TU Diagnostics view.
    • Engineer TU Report
    • Operator TU Report
    • Manager TU Report

Sparks: See these in the SiteSpark app.

  • NEW!
    • CHLR – Out of Range Compressor Efficiency
    • CHLR – Out of Range Condenser Approach
    • CHLR – Out of Range Condenser Efficiency
    • CHLR – Out of Range Evaporator Approach
    • CHLR – Out of Range Evaporator Efficiency
    • CHLR – Out of Range Refrigerator Efficiency
    • CHLR – Out of Range SEI
    • CHLR – Out of Range Subcool
    • CHLR – Out of Range Suction Superheat
    • CT – Cooling Tower Defrost Cycle
  • Adjusted
    • AHU – Economizer Issue At Low OAT: Moved supply flow dependency to within the cost calc. Spark will return with no cost if supply flow is not available.
    • TU – Air Flow Setpoint Not Met: Fixed cost bug that would return infinite cost if AHU supply flow was 0 and TU was reading flow.
    • TU – Perimeter Heat At High OAT: Renamed from “TU – Perimeter Reheat Active At High OAT” and adjusted to use valvePosOpen constant on the perimeter heat position.
  • Calculated Points: See these in the History app. They will be created automatically on appropriate equips.
    • CHLR – Chilled Water dT: Now forced to 0 when the chiller is detected as off.
  • Standard Calculations: These will happen in the background of many rules and KPIs.
    • Site Area Normalization: Now supports site areas that change over time, like when a new wing is constructed.
  • Email Summaries: These will be emailed to you on a periodic basis if you are subscribed.
  • BuildingFit Points: See these in the Builder app.
    • CHLR – system efficiency index: NEW!

  • Under the Hood: Technical improvements that most users won’t deal with.
    • Axonator: Our axon code will now be obfuscated prior to deployment to better protect it from theft.
    • User Subscription Report: exportUserSubscriptionReport will output a cluster-wide summary of users and their email subscriptions.
    • Future Prediction: historyMonthlyPredict will use monthly historical data and R to predict future values of any given history.
    • ClimaCheck Import Functions: Removed in favor of new ClimaCheck Trendly point definition processor.
      • importClimaCheckCsv
        • importClimaCheckPoints
    • Equip Auto-tagging: Fixed bug that prevented AHUs from being auto-tagged correctly.

    • User can now select whether to use interval meter data or monthly utility bills.
    • KPI power readings can be overlaid to break total use into different HVAC sections.

BuildingFit Dashboard v1.3.0

  • Monthly Report View: See this in the Manager Dashboard app.
    • PDFs now sort by display so most recent ones come first.

Banner Executive v1.3.0

  • Demand-rachet email improvements.
  • Added historized site area support.

Utility Benchmark v2.4.0
