With technology in our world advancing every day, it has become increasingly important that industries continue to adapt and embrace the conveniences modern technology provides. Lately, the conversation in the building controls industry has been trending towards the advancement and adaption of mobile capabilities in building control systems and the platforms they operate on.
This topic was addressed at the 2018 Niagara Summit and conversation hasn’t slowed down since. Technology has led the industry to expect a higher quality and more creative visual representation even when you are on the move with your mobile device. In today’s day and age, you should expect to be able to access your building automation system via devices of all sizes. This trend means your graphics need to be optimized for mobile support and responsive to any device type without pixelization.
QA Graphics has constantly strived to stay ahead of current trends in the industry and that’s why we’re creating a new library. A core part of QA Graphics’ business is graphic outsourcing, taking mechanical control drawings and creating system graphics for the end user. Our Vector Symbol Library is made up of graphics that are scalable and seamlessly useable on devices of all sizes. We provide graphics that are of higher quality compared to what is available to our clients without the pixelization or degradation no matter the use.
This ultimately comes down to improved convenience and ease of use in the field for facility managers, and modern technology has made this possible. Our library allows you to be in the field with your mobile device to view your BAS graphics, and then back in an office projecting the same graphic onto a much larger screen. Your entire BAS systems can be located on one page allowing you to zoom in and out of certain systems. This further improves the ease of navigation by having less pages to sift through to find what you are looking for.
This technological advancement of mobile capability in this industry will continue to develop and progress. QA Graphics has stayed up to pace with this trend. Continuing to adapt with technological advancements is our priority, as you can see with our release of the v5 Vector Symbol Library.
