Metasys® Release 8.0

EMC Services is excited to announce Metasys 8.0. This is the most recent major release of the industry-leading building automation system. Release 8.0 includes Release 2.0 of the Metasys user interface, the device-friendly UI that runs on smartphones, tablets, and computers without the need to install any native applications or client-side software. The Metasys® UI adapts to the screen's size so that all information can be accessed from any device. The Metasys UI is intuitive and easy to learn because system navigation is based on building floors and spaces.

Our customers expect and need their Building Management System (BMS) to function on the computers, servers, and browsers (clients) available in the marketplace. The Metasys system supports the latest Microsoft platform offerings and provides new utilities to manage the upgrade and installation process. As always, the security of your facility is our priority. This release includes updates to the user password management process to match the industry-standard best practices.

AD-1252 Thermal Dispersion Probe Airflow Measuring System

AD-1252 Thermal Dispersion Probe Airflow Measuring System averages velocity and temperature from up to four probes and sixteen sensing points in a duct or plenum, providing accurate, dependable airflow measurement from 40 to 4,000 Feet Per Minute (FPM) (12 to 1,219 Meters Per Minute [MPM]) within ±2% accuracy. At each sensing point, a microprocessor calculates flow and temperature, sending this information to an Integral Multiplexing Unit
(IMU). The IMU collects data from each sensor circuit and sends a digital output to the control transmitter. The control transmitter provides air temperature and velocity information on a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen and to a Building Automation System (BAS) through analog outputs (2 to 10 VDC or 4 to 20 mA). The factory-assembled AD-1252 Thermal Dispersion Probe Airflow Measuring System incorporates up to four thermal dispersion probes, a shielded CAT5e communications cable, and a DMPR-RA002 Electronic Controller. AD-1252 System products are backed by a 3-year warranty, which covers defects in materials or workmanship. Read the Catalog Page.

August 2012 Annual Safety Meeting

Sprague MansionThe company-wide annual safety meeting was held on August 6th at the Sprague Mansion in Cranston.  All employees attended a training class on Asbestos Awareness presented by RI Analytical.  Several safety topics were reviewed and discussed, including workshops to bring safety awareness to the forefront of the employees' minds.  Representatives from Red Wing shoes were on hand with samples, and we had 100% employee participation in the safety shoe program!  This year's safety meeting included a food drive, and we are proud to say our employees contributed 374 lbs of food to the RI Community Food Bank.

EMC Services has held several events at the Sprague Mansion.  We are happy to support the Cranston Historical Society and their preservation efforts of our local history.  The mansion (built-in 1770 with an addition in 1864) and the Sprague family are a tribute to Rhode Island's textile history.
