Abstract
The objective of this paper is to address the major issues in small, medium and large-scale residential, industrial and commercial buildings in scenarios where Building Management solution is neither installed nor effective in monitoring and controlling the day-to-day energy spent & carbon footprint in buildings and industries. The need for Versatile Sensor Data Acquisition and Control System (VSDACS) with its design and features of the solution is proposed and discussed. Alternate to building management system implementation using available market products, VSDACS has unique provision to acquire sensors data irrespective of the Operational Technology (OT) protocols followed in the Internet Of Things (IoT) Edge and enables Edge control through EDGE Analytics. The key advantage of this solution is interoperability, since it runs smoothly in any Operating System and IoT Gateways with low hardware specification. VSDACS also addresses the multi-protocol in single loop especially in the case of data acquisition from Modbus RTU and BACnet MS/TP enabled sensors in single network. This single network setup on demand can be setup for other protocols with similar hardware interfaces for data acquisition. This paper discusses the VSDACS architecture advantages, performance evaluation of VSDACS with different IoT Gateways, OT Protocols and attractive experimental outcomes in detail. All the said features were experimented at Sensors to Software, TCS Innovation Laboratory, TATA Consultancy Services Limited, Chennai.
