WorkStation Overview

WorkStation is your main interface to your EcoStruxure BMS. You use WorkStation to perform all work on a daily basis in the EcoStruxure BMS.

Log on to WorkStation

You log on to WorkStation to securely access the functions in WorkStation. You log on to WorkStation as a Windows user or an EcoStruxure Building Operation user. Your system administrator decides which type of user you log on as.

For more information, see Log on to WorkStation or WebStation .

System Registration

As the owner, you register your EcoStruxure BMS to ensure that you are informed of the latest product news, relevant offers, and system updates. This information enables you to optimize maintenance and functionality of your system, protect asset value, and produce a healthier building for optimal comfort conditions.

User Experience

The Work area in the EcoStruxure Building Operation user interfaces may vary depending on how it is set up. A typical EcoStruxure Building Operation workspace contains panes and views.

Handle Values

You can change and force values using a graphic or the Properties pane. Using the Watch pane in WorkStation, you can dynamically monitor a value.

How Alarms Work

You are notified by alarms when some important event occurs. For example, if the temperature is too low or too high in a building, if a window is open, or if something is broken, such as a fan. The system administrator sets up the alarms and decides to whom the alarm is sent.

For more information, see How Alarms Work .

How Events Work

All system events, as well as information and circumstances, are recorded in the Event log. These event records can be viewed in the Events pane or in an Event View.

For more information, see How Events Work .

How Schedules Work

Schedules are used to schedule the operation of part of the building management system, such as a fan, a door, or a setpoint. Using a schedule, a fan can be set to operate between 08:00 and 17:00 every workday.

For more information, see How Schedules Work .

How Trend Logs Work

You use trend logs to record values, such as a sensor. A trend log can also log consumptions, such as energy consumption or water consumption.

For more information, see How Trend Logs Work .

How Graphics Work

You use graphics to display building overviews, display values from sensors, or change setpoints. A graphic can also contain links to trend charts, trend log lists, Internet sites, or views in WorkStation and WebStation.

For more information, see How Graphics Work .

How Documents Work

You can open documents stored on an EcoStruxure BMS server using the default program associated with the file type. For example, a txt-file opens Notepad and a ppt-file opens PowerPoint.
