In current times, the world has become a very small place with the advancements in the field of internet and technology. One is able to know about, and gain access to places in every nook and corners of the globe. With all these possibilities any invention as in product's information is made available to anyone from anywhere, and with the current advancements in the supply chain network, a product invented and manufactured at one end of the map is made available at other end of the map on demand.
With its goal towards the energy savings and countering the climate change, no wonder the 75F system and its products information has reached every corner of the world. This has led the organization to open its market to start providing its products and services to different regions and countries.
75F which stands for 75 Fahrenheit started its journey in North America, and slowly moved and made its mark in the continents of Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Since it began its journey in the Americas, it used the Fahrenheit in its name and thus the name 75F, which is considered a feel-good temperature, and it also used Fahrenheit as a unit of measure for the temperature. And also used the units specified as standard, for various other parameters, in the BMS devices and system. (Which includes the CCU, smart devices, Renatus and Facilisight and Internal portals).
With its transition into the APAC and the Middle east, there came the need for the system, to start using the country or continent specific units in the system to measure and display. This paved the way to the concept of globalization which is required to ease the use of the system.
Globalization is a concept of bringing in different units for a particular parameter into the system, and also allowing the installers, facility managers to set the preferred unit for a particular parameter which is measured and displayed by the 75F system. This is implemented in the portals of the 75F system to provide different units support for the following parameters as below, and in the CCU with the unit support for temperature as Celsius, with a toggle button to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius.
|Energy Consumption||kWh, kBTU, tonrefh, GJ|
|Airflow Volume||cfm, m3h, L/min, L/s|
|Air Pressure||inH2O, mmH2O, cmH2O, Pa|
|Water Pressure||bar, psi, kPa|
|Water Flow||gal/min, m3h, L/min, L/s|
For the enhancement in the portals as apart of globalization, to set the unit preference for the user, refer the User preference management section in User Management - Internal
For the enhancement in the CCU as apart of globalization refer Switching to Celsius Mode in CCU- to be linked
With the above parameters units, and based on the country/continent/organization/ user preferences the units for the parameters can be set. Once the unit preference for the parameters are set, the 75F system measures and displays the parameter with the preferred units, in all the applicable places in the system.
Note: The units preferences set from the portals takes effect only in the portals and does not cascade to the CCU, and the unit preference set in the CCU takes effect only in the CCU, and does not cascade to the portals.
Once unit preference for temperature is set to Celsius in the portals, the same takes effect in the heatmap screens, Visualizations and user intent under zone settings sections as below.
| User Intent
Note: Just like the Fahrenheit mode the user intent for the desired temperatures are incremented or decremented in 0.5 ℃
