The Infrastructure Modeling and Control System (IMCS™) is a fully integrated monitoring, control, and data acquisition solution that’s custom-tailored to each unique facility where it’s installed. Our IMCSs provide 24/7 monitoring of all facility equipment and systems, providing notifications of any problems or issues immediately as they arise. Unlike more traditional building management systems (BMS) and building automation systems (BAS) that only connect to a facility’s systems—HVAC, fire alarm, security, etc.—the IMCS is able to monitor and control all of the facilities systems as well as the equipment the facility houses.
IMCS is built on industry-standard software that is openly available, enabling it to integrate with legacy systems and devices as well as state-of-the-art technology. IMCS also communicates with many different types and brands of industrial, commercial, and data center equipment using both open and proprietary communications protocols.
EKFox was tasked with developing and implementing an IMCS at a remotely located facility with limited personnel access. IMCS provides a graphical user interface (GUI) displaying critical information related to electrical, cooling, and state of health for all facility systems. The system also provides remote users with advanced alarm notifications, simplified troubleshooting procedures, and automatically generated facility efficiency reports. IMCS served as a vital tool in the initial startup of the facility, and remains indispensable for the ongoing operation of the facility.
