“Each year, Bank of Ireland offers businesses the chance to become Sponsor for a Day for one of the most high profile and successful sports teams in Ireland. The winner takes over the sponsorship of Leinster for a European Champions Cup match for one day, with their company logo appearing on the front of the jersey,” explained Aidan McDonnell, Managing Director.
Acutrace was the winning business for 2016, with the company logo appearing on the Leinster jerseys for the recent Leinster v Bath match in the RDS.
“This time last year we were trying to think of a name for the business. Only 12 short months later, to see the players coming out with our name, our logo and our branding on their jerseys was just amazing,” said John Lynch, Chief Technical Officer at the firm.
As an SME, Acutrace has felt the benefits of the PR, marketing and social media plan that formed part of the competition. The next step is to build on that exposure by emphasising the various facets that make up the business – energy measurement, intelligent lighting control, systems integration, service support and training. Here’s a look at what the company’s MVAC systems can offer:
ENERGY MEASUREMENT – Acutrace MVAC allows users to measure, visualise, analyse and control their energy costs. The software can measure all utilities – including electricity, water, gas and oil – and can also monitor, control and interface with essential building systems such as back-up generators, fire alarms and building management systems. The Acutrace MVAC software ensures seamless integration of all building automation systems into one complete system, allowing visualisation of all building functions in a simple web-based user friendly platform.
INTELLIGENT LIGHTING SYSTEMS – The Acutrace MVAC System also incorporates full lighting controls for modern commercial buildings using KNX and Dali protocols. The system uses presence/absence detection and daylight harvesting to ensure accurate control and to minimise lighting energy costs. Lux level measurement, emergency light testing and room temperature measurement are just some of the integrated functions that feature in Acutrace MVAC Software.
SYSTEMS INTEGRATION – Acutrace MVAC software can also be used to develop a complete smart building solution incorporating all the technologies used in modern building automation systems. The firm’s multi-layer software can communicate with and collect data from all BA protocols including ethernet, modbus and BACNet. Acutrace’s highly skilled team of systems engineers will ensure seamless integration of all building automation systems into one complete system allowing the visualisation of all building functions in simple web-based user friendly platform.
SERVICE SUPPORT AND TRAINING – Acutrace system engineers are available for on-site technical support consultation before, during and after a project, providing post-project technical support through its Service Level Agreements. The firm’s SLA’s are customised to meet the requirements of the building owner or facilities manager. Acutrace is a registered KNX Partner, its CTO is a qualified KNX tutor and the firm provides regular KNK training throughout the year.
