B-CON OWS/BMS – all applications in one system

Expansions, existing systems, or new construction: B-CON lets you aggregate all applications and building automation systems from a great diversity of vendors in the single manufacturer-neutral operator workstation (OWS, also building management system or BMS).

This ensures unified access to all functions and information from applications like lighting, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, Hi Gene, the side, electrical supply, media supply, as well as systems for special tasks such as access control and fire or smoke alarm systems.

The B-CON standard already supports all management functions specified in ISO 16484 and VDI 3814, as well as display and control functions and operating concepts. In particular the powerful functions of the B-CON energy management system that come as part of the operator workstation contribute to making operations more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly.

One strength of B-CON is the data management across all of the applications within a building management system. This makes all building functions available at the management level for a wide variety of management tasks, such as display, operation, and data logging. B-CON offers interfaces to virtually all building automation systems.

Display and control functions – the B-CON visualization editor

The visualization of technical functions and operating conditions is a key element in building management systems that simplifies system operations and prevents operator errors. In the visualization of your building systems, you will benefit in particular from the following B-CON functions:

  • Quick visualization data points in a tree structure for display and control
  • Comprehensive single letter is for visualization of systems like lighting, shading, single-room control, ventilation, heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems, burglar alarms, fire alarms, central locking systems, swimming pool technology, video surveillance, and many more.
  • Direct visualization of input and output modules in HTML5
  • Graphic logic editor for wiring in cabinet logic
  • Freely configurable dialog structure without page number limits
  • Support of any screen resolution for flexible set-up of touch panels, notebooks, desktops, or mobile applications

»I've been using B-CON for long time and I'm very happy with ICONAG. B-CON is a highly flexible tool for creating visualizations and can also handle control tasks for you. Ability to variably design functions, visualizations, and projects. A key advantage is ICONAG's flexibility and quick support if you have problems with the product or a project.«

Mobile operation

In many building management applications using B-CON, the central management station is not continuously attended by staff. In addition, technicians may require access to your management system while working elsewhere in the building. The B-CON software enables visualization and control of the system on a wide variety of end-user devices, such as the desktop PC at the operator workstation (OWS), a tablet, or a smartphone.

Any B-CON project can be expanded easily to make all relevant functions available on a on a wide variety of mobile end-user devices. Facility technicians receive and process alarms and fault messages while on the go and may modify system parameters on their smartphone, tablet, or notebook.

diverse operating concepts for optimal support of your processes and safety standards

B-CON gives you access to functions and information no matter where you are. At the desktop PC, on the touch panel for system or room control, or on mobile end devices such as tablets or smartphones: B-CON supports your facility management processes and seamlessly integrates into your IT and process environment.

By default, the B-CON OWS server supports the following operating concepts after installation:

  • Operation directly at the server
  • Client installation for operator stations
  • Operation via web browser (pure HTML5, no plug-in installation required)
  • Operation of the room automation via tablet or smartphone
  • Operation of the room automation from the desktop PC's Windows taskbar via the tray tool

B-CON also sets the standard in IT security and supports comprehensive requirements for access security and data encryption.

B-CON management functions for efficient building operation

B-CON Management functions create transparency, e.g. with regard to events, alarms, or system conditions, and they support all recurring tasks in building operation.

Event and alarm management

Buildings primarily need to function. This requires maximum transparency with regard to potential malfunctions in the various systems and applications in the building. B-CON provides maximum support for the building management system, e.g. through

  • Central administration and processing of operation and fault messages for all applications
  • Alarm notification via e-mail, SMS, or pager
  • Mobile processing via alarm and event manager
  • Storage of instructions for staff
  • Direct navigation from the alarm overview to the system screens
  • Comprehensive documentation for processing of malfunctions and performing system interventions
  • Automated creation of reports and distribution via e-mail
  • Operation as a manned or unmanned control station

»We are very satisfied with B-CON as a product, in particular because B-CON allows us to use the functions of the underlying programming language LabVIEW by National Instruments. We really like the ability to aggregate divers bus systems in one visualization system, as well as the project-specific support by ICONAG. Our customers appreciate the stable operation of the B-CON projects implemented by us.«

Schedule management

Powerful timer functions are among the most important management functions for effective building operation, because they ensure that all the functions operate in the right place and at the right time. With B-CON, your facility management benefits from

  • Timer programs across applications and systems
  • Any number of switching cycles per daily or weekly program
  • Calendar function for exception programming (e.g. public holidays or seasonal breaks)
  • Intuitive input interfaces, such as the schedule module for easy representation of room and system utilization plans
  • Automated synchronization of stored programs on all operator stations.

»We really like B-CON as a product. Quick response in case of questions or problems. Competent consulting and great suggestions for solutions! ICONAG is always up to date! We appreciate the flexibility and our friendly contacts!«

Trend management

These are the functions that are particularly beneficial for trend recording, analysis, and reporting using B-CON as your building management system:

  • Cyclical, event, or threshold-oriented recording for any number of data loggers in one system
  • Internal or external data management for storage and backup of history data
  • Evaluation of up to 8 loggers simultaneously for analysis of interdependencies and report creation
  • Easy report creation as a graphic or spreadsheet; export as HTML or Excel file
