All functionalities of a standard hardware ENCELIUM EXTEND System Support Unit (SSU) can reside on a client server as a virtualized version of the SSU, called the SSU Virtual Server (SSUVIRT). This eliminates the need for dedicated server hardware. It is important to note that all ENCELIUM EXTEND Managers must be assigned with static IP addresses for communication with the SSUVIRT. In addition, certain ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked Light Management System specified communication ports must remain “open”.
The SSUVIRT serves as the database for all data related to an ENCELIUM EXTEND system installed in a facility. The SSUVIRT stores all system settings and parameters, including attributes for zones, fixtures, sensors, zone controllers, and scene controllers. Additionally, it maintains multiple set points including those for light levels, time schedules, occupancy sensor timeouts and demand response or load shedding features. The SSUVIRT also logs historical data regarding the system’s operational and energy savings results.
The SSUVIRT provides the ability to remotely access a system in order to change system settings or configuration, analyze system performance or energy data or troubleshoot thereby providing quick and seamless customer support. The SSUVIRT also hosts the web interface required for the web enabled Personal Control Software. In addition, optional building automation interfaces such as BACnet®, and A/V Interface, are available upon request.
Each ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked Light Management System (LMS) requires one SSU Virtual Server (or hardware based SSU).
