May 26, 2010 QA Graphics released the BAS Image Module which allows users to easily create high-end system graphics within the Niagara AX platform. The module provides users with both static and pre-built animated images.The module is offered with QA Graphics commercial version of their 3D Symbol Library v3.0 for Niagara AX, to provide more appealing and realistic graphics than provided by default with the Niagara AX platform. The library and module function smoothly within Niagara AX, allowing the user to build their graphics, pull in the pre-built animations, and bind the points and animations. The module can be opened though Niagara AXs palette sidebar, similar to the existing graphics provided with Niagara AX, where the user can drag and drop the symbols onto their canvas, making the process of assembling high-end graphics simpler and faster. QA Graphics has also developed a resource that shows users how to build their own Image Module within Niagara AX to use with the 3D Symbol Library. The 3D Symbol Library provides the equipment and components needed to consistently assemble high-end system graphics, allowing users to spend less time assembling 3D BAS graphics and 3D HVAC graphics and further distinguish themselves in the market. The library offers a competitive advantage within the building automation industry. With over 280 static and 85 animated graphics, the symbols can be used to create most major mechanical systems. Key symbols include boilers, chillers, dampers, filters, piping, fans, cooling towers, generators, valves, ductwork, coils and more. Users can continually provide high-end system graphics and represent mechanical control drawings in a schematic, graphical view. The library has successfully been implemented into numerous facilities and several leading control system manufacturers have worked with QA Graphics to acquire custom libraries with the distribution rights to provide their system integrators a competitive edge in todays market.
