What is Lynus?
Lynus is a machine-learning platform to optimize buildings and areas in terms of energy. Through data-driven machine-learning algorithms, electrical and thermal systems can be optimized to reduce energy consumption and the Co2 footprint can be reduced. Lynus can directly access data from the building's building management system or directly connect sensors and actuators.
Fields of application
The use of Lynus is particularly advantageous in complex systems and areas. Due to the data-driven machine learning approach, objects can be optimized without a learning phase.
- Optimization of electrical systems
- Load management
- Internal power optimization
- E-charging infrastructure
- Peak shaving
- Optimization of heating circuits and systems
- Optimization of cooling systems and plants
A major focus for Lynus is the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Through simple features like Anomaly Detection, we also offer proprietary algorithms for Heating Circuit Optimization and Energy Management (EMS).
Thanks to its proprietary Heating Circuit Optimization algorithm, Lynus is able to reduce heating by 25%. This is accomplished by taking the current and future weather and temperature into account.
Once in the cloud, the device parameters and controls can be arranged and then displayed in Lynus’ user-friendly dashboard. With the possibility to visualize and control the devices, nearly unlimited possibilities are given for PropTec.
Who is Lynus aimed at?
Lynus is aimed at property owners, installers as well as planners and covers the entire portfolio from new buildings to existing buildings. Lynus is used in business applications as well as in private residential construction.
How is Lynus different from other tools?
Lynus combines data-driven algorithms with IoT edge computing to implement real-time energy schedules on the plant. The plant operator can create applications and control plants without programming knowledge due to the low code approach. The focus of Lynus is not on simple monitoring but on controlling complex energy systems. For this reason, Lynus relies on tested industrial hardware in the field to ensure operation for decades.
Can fieldbus systems communicate with Lynus?
Common fieldbus systems can send data directly via the BMS or the Edge Device supplied by Lynus. data to the cloud in a harmonized way. The communicator installed on the edge device standardizes all values and all values and thus enables bidirectional communication.
How secure is Lynus?
Lynus sends all data with SSL encryption via MQTT.
Can Lynus be used by multiple departments?
Lynus has a granular user management, facilities and areas can be accessible to all users or only dedicated departments. The administrator can manage users himself and assign permissions.
Are there specific devices or algorithms?
Yes, Lynus can provide dedicated algorithms or devices to meet customer requirements. requirements. Specific reports and charts can be created by the user with the appropriate authorization. on the other hand, individual solutions can be created for specific installations or systems.
What are data points?
Data points in Lynus are write or read variables, which are transferred from the GLT or the Edge Device to Lynus. All data points are read event-based.
What libraries are available in Lynus?
Lynus has three different libraries: Device Library, Chart Library, Machine Learning Library.
The functions listed in the respective areas are freely usable and are constantly extended. For each area there is a description or an instruction how data points can be linked to the functionality without programming knowledge.
What else can Lynus do besides energy optimization?
In addition to energy optimization, Lynus can also be used to map classic building management system functionalities such as lighting, shading, access, monitoring, reports, ZEV billing, alarm management etc.
How does the surface design work in Lynus?
Every user with authorization can create his dashboard in Lynus according to his ideas and freely define areas, charts and devices. The mobile app for Android and iOS is created synchronously with the web application.
How does Lynus optimize energy systems?
Lynus combines data-driven algorithms with historical building data and forecast data for weather. In addition to temperature values, global radiation values are also included in the calculation. Due to the data-driven approach, the system can make forecasts after just two weeks and send corresponding energy schedules to the local system on site. Influencing variables include the on-time and load profiles of consumers and generators as well as the temperature level, speed and valve position of systems. In some cases, the algorithms can define driving modes and set them in combination with tariff models. A detailed description of each algorithm can be found in the documentation.
What are the energy savings with Lynus?
Lynus reduces energy consumption by 25% and CO2 emissions by 20% on average, depending on the primary energy medium depending on the primary energy medium and the local electricity mix.
