During the ‘Last Thursday of the Month Dinner Meeting’hosted by the ISA Toronto Section at the Sandman Hotel, I had the honour of addressing the group before the main presentation by Stewart Paterson from Iconics. The majority of the attendees came from the process and industrial controls sectors and the opening talk was intended to make them aware of the opportunities that exist in the Building Automation Industry and how easy it is to transfer their skills and knowledge and apply them to this field.
The scene was set as Leo SaLemi provided an overview of the similarities between the PLC/DDC/DCS/PAC hardware, sensors and the programming tools and how thin the line between a process plant and a modern day building really was. This was followed by an amazing presentation by Stewart Paterson who focused on Intelligent Buildings explaining how the Iconics software platform could be used to Cut Energy and Operational Costs; Reduce Greenhouse Gases; Improve Occupant Experience; deploy Cross-Systems Intelligence and much more. All in all it was a very enlightening presentation as Steward wrapped up with the latest in emerging technologies that utilize Microsoft Azure Digital Twin for Buildings.
