PRLog - Jun. 8, 2011 - ANKENY, Iowa -- QA Graphics, an industry leader in providing design solutions for the building automation industry, has developed a training video for integrators that demonstrates how to create high-end system graphics.
Sample HVAC Image using BAS Symbol Library
The educational video makes creating BAS graphics easy. It walks users through a simple step-by-step process, demonstrating how to create static backgrounds in Adobe Photoshop CS5 which can then be imported into the user’s existing building automation software.
The video illustrates how to create system graphics using QA Graphics’ BAS Symbol Library, but it can also serve as an introduction to using Photoshop and constructing system graphics without the BAS Symbol Library. The video can also be viewed at: http://www.qagraphics.com/
QA Graphics developed the BAS Symbol Library to offer more appealing and realistic graphics than typically provided with BAS software. It allows users to maintain their existing software while accessing high-end graphics.
The Symbol Library is compatible with the following building automation systems:
• Reliable Controls
• Call for compatibility with other BAS software
The library provides over 310 static graphics and more than 95 animated graphics to construct BAS graphics and HVAC graphics. Key symbols include chillers, dampers, filters, piping, fans, cooling towers, generators, valves, ductwork, coils, boilers for popular HVAC equipment providers including Cleaver-Brooks, Murray and Buderus, and a variety of other symbols. This allows users to create more than 95% of all mechanical systems.
The library is offered at two levels: Commercial, which offers an extensive variety of graphic options, and Lite Commercial, which offers a condensed symbol set. The BAS Symbol Library has been implemented at numerous facilities across the country, and several leading control system manufacturers have worked with QA Graphics to develop custom libraries.
To aid in graphic development, QA Graphics also offers comprehensive user guides that can be referenced during the ongoing use of the Symbol Library and access to a support portal with a knowledge base, answers to common FAQs and technical support.
