技术领域 FIELD

[0002] 本发明大体而言涉及建筑物自动化系统。 [0002] The present invention generally relates to building automation systems. 更具体而言,本发明涉及建筑物自动化系统信息、通信、及配置的用户定制及接口。 More particularly, the present invention relates to a user interface to the building automation system and customized information, communication, and configuration.

背景技术 Background technique

[0003] 建筑物自动化系统(building automation system ;BAS)用于协调、管理及自动控制各种环境、物理、及电气建筑物子系统,尤其是HAVC及气候控制,但也包含保安、避雷、供电等。 [0003] A building automation system (building automation system; BAS) to coordinate, manage, and automatic control of various environmental, physical, and electrical subsystems buildings, especially HAVC and climate control, but also contains security, lightning protection, power supply Wait. 通常的现有BAS系统是通过硬接线实现的,或者利用专用通信标准或协议来链接各·个子系统及提供系统范围的用户访问及控制。 Typically prior BAS is achieved by a system hard-wired, or using a dedicated communication standard or protocol to a link in each sub-system and to provide access and system-wide control.

[0004] 对BAS进行硬接线及人工编程可形成针对特定设施进行定制的耐用的固定系统。 [0004] to be hard-wired BAS and manual programming can form a durable fixation system customized for a particular facility. 然而,这些系统常常需要针对每一建筑物或地点进行广泛定制。 However, these systems often require extensive customization for each building or location. 一个BAS的必要的人工编程及其它安装要素可能并不适用于其它系统,导致与这些系统相关的安装操作成本高昂且耗费时间。 A manual programming of the BAS and other necessary elements of the installation may not be applicable to other systems, resulting in associated with the mounting operation of these systems expensive and time consuming.

[0005] 此外,硬接线系统及那些利用专用通信标准及协议的系统很难、甚至不可能与不同厂商或不同代的系统组件、面板、及其它组件相集成。 [0005] Further, those of hardwired systems and standards and protocols using a dedicated communication system difficult or impossible to integrate with different manufacturers or different generations of system components, panels, and other components. 例如,在由安装有升级的BAS的多栋建筑物构成的校园中,可能具有现存的前代(遗留)系统及购自不止一家厂商的系统。 For example, in a campus consisting of several buildings fitted with BAS upgrade, the previous generation may have existing (legacy) systems and available from more than one vendor's system. 在此种情形中,安装BAS并使其与现有系统兼容会非常耗时,需要进行大量的人工维护及编程才能集成现有的装置及建成定制的BAS。 In this case, the installation of BAS and make it compatible with existing systems can be very time consuming and requires a lot of manual maintenance and programming in order to integrate existing devices and built custom BAS. 人工维护通常是由系统集成人员提供。 Manual maintenance is usually provided by the system integrator. 尽管由于费用及中断等原因,BAS业主及管理者并不看好系统集成人员,然而系统集成人员却是许多BAS制造商及厂商在销售及最初安装BAS后形成收益及进行现场联络的经营模式的一关键方面。 Despite the cost and because of interruption, the owners and managers are not optimistic about the BAS system integrators, system integrators, but it is a lot of BAS manufacturers and vendors in the form of sales and income after the initial installation of BAS-site liaison and business model key aspects. 因此,BAS制造商及厂商一直不愿更改其经营模式及取消其系统集成人员。 Therefore, BAS manufacturers and vendors have been reluctant to change their business model and cancel their system integrators.

[0006] 随着BACnet™(—种美国采暖、制冷及空调工程师协会(American Society ofHeating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers ;ASHRAE)及美国国家标准学会(American National Standards Institute ;ANSI)标准)以及LonTalk™(—种由Echelon开发的协议集成方法)的引入,本行业中的各种标准及通信已实现了一定的统一。 [0006] With the BACnet ™ (- kind of American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (American Society ofHeating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers; ASHRAE) and the American National Standards Institute (American National Standards Institute; ANSI) standard) and LonTalk ™ (- kind of protocol integration method developed by Echelon) the introduction of various standards and communication in the industry has achieved a certain degree of unity. BACnet™原本是制定HVAC互操作性标准,现在用作整个行业范围内问题的解决方案。 BACnet ™ was originally developed HVAC interoperability standards, now used as a solution to an industry-wide problem. 然而,在使用中,BACnet™存在多种版本,并包含各种可供厂商使用的非标准特征功能。 However, in use, BACnet ™ there are multiple versions, and includes a variety of features available for manufacturers to use non-standard functions. 许多厂商规定要实现系统的相符性,必须使用特定的BACnet™版本,因而迫使BAS用户进行更新。 Many vendors to implement the provisions consistent with the system, you must use a specific BACnet ™ version, thus forcing the user to update the BAS. 因此,BACnet™的各种版本及特征之间并不能完全协同使用。 Therefore, between the various versions and features BACnet ™ does not fully used in conjunction. 此外,当前的BAS通常是单协议架构。 In addition, current BAS is usually a single protocol architecture. 因此,尽管既定的BAS会兼容一协议标准,然而BAS固有地仅兼容单种协议,例如BACnet™、另一种标准协议、或专用协议。 Thus, despite the established BAS will be compatible with a standard protocol, however, only the BAS inherently compatible with a single protocol, e.g. BACnet ™, another standard protocol, or a proprietary protocol.

[0007] 简单地进行比喻,可将BAS比作一本装订的书。 [0007] easily analogy, it can be likened to a BAS bookbinding. BAS中的每一设备均是这本书的不同读者。 Each device in the BAS are different readers of this book. 这本书可包含多个章节或部分,且必须针对每一读者定制书写并进行专业装订。 This book may include multiple chapters or sections, and must be customized for each reader to write and professionally bound. 如果BAS兼容多个协议版本或厂商,则各章节可分别以不同语言进行书写。 If BAS compatible with multiple protocol versions or vendors, the various sections that can be individually written in different languages. 为读取书中的各种不同语言,读者需要用手查字典来将每一章节翻译成读者的母语或所偏好的语言。 To read a variety of different languages ​​in the book, the reader will need to manually look up the dictionary to translate into the native language of each chapter or the preferred language readers. 可能需要多本字典。 This may require multiple dictionaries. 读者可能无法完全翻译每一种语言,或者可能只能将某些章节翻译成非偏好的语言-即读者只是熟悉但不流利的语言,因此读者可能只基本理解一或多个章节。 Readers may not be fully translated for each language, or may only be translated into some sections of the non-preferred language - that readers are familiar with, but just not fluent in the language, so readers may only basic understanding of one or more chapters. 例如,书中的一章可以是第一种语言,代表特定厂商所偏好的BAS BACnet™版本或母语版本,而书中的另一章则代表另一厂商的第二种语言的BACnet™版本。 For example, a chapter in the book can be the first language, or on behalf of BACnet ™ version BAS native language preferred by a particular vendor, and another chapter in the book represents BACnet ™ version of the second language of the other vendors. 如果读者不能理解第二种语言,则读者只能通过利用词典进行翻译来最低限度地掌握第二种语言。 If readers can not understand a second language, the reader can only translate to minimally use knowledge of a second language dictionary. 由于不完全精通,因而这本书不能帮助读者有效地进行高级任务或沟通。 Because it does not fully proficient, so this book can not help the reader to effectively communicate or perform advanced tasks. 某些语言可能无法翻译,需要读者咨询翻译人员来人工翻译这一或这些章节。 Some languages ​​may not translate, the reader needs to consult translators to translate this manual or these chapters. 人工翻译尤其耗费时间且成本很高,且如果翻译整章内容,则必须专业地重新装订这本书,以永久地包含所翻译的内容。 Human translation, especially time-consuming and costly, and if the translation entire chapter, must be professionally re-binding of this book, to permanently contain the contents of the translation. 如果不进行专业的重新装订,则读者下次读这本书时将需要重新进行人工翻译。 You will need to be manually translated if not for professional re-binding, then the next time readers read this book.

[0008] 另外,BAS安装及维护仍是一般需要耗费大量人力的定制任务,这些任务因每一系统的实施方案而各不相同。 [0008] In addition, BAS installation and maintenance is still the custom tasks generally requires a lot of manpower, these tasks arising from the implementation plan for each system and each is different. 升级、扩展、以及更新或移除系统组件及服务尤其也是非常复杂的任务,这是因为现有BAS既可能支持也可能不支持新的装置且必须人工进行重新配置才能识别出及包含所作改动。 Upgrade, expand, and update or remove system components and services in particular, it is a very complex task, because the existing BAS also may support both the new device may not be supported and must be reconfigured manually in order to identify and contain the changes made. 在常见情景中,管理一建筑物地点且该建筑物地点具有两个在现有BAS中运行的控制单元的用户想要在建筑物的新建成的侧楼中增加第三控制单元。 In a common scenario, the management of a building site and the building site has a user control unit two runs in the existing BAS want to add a third control unit in the newly built wing of the building. 此时,用户必须将现有控制单元升级至第三控制单元的新版本才能使系统相互一致,因为系统无法适应多个版本或集成新的控制单元。 In this case, the user must upgrade the existing control unit to the third control unit of a new version to make the system consistent with each other, because the system can not adapt or integrate multiple versions of the new control unit.

[0009] 返回书的比喻,此时,当需要对书中的章节进行更新时,或者当增加整章的新内容时,必须将整本书返送回原始作者进行重写并随后进行专业的重新装订。 [0009] returns the book metaphor, at this time, when the need for a chapter in the book is updated, or when adding new contents of the entire chapter, must be sent back to the original author of the whole book and then rewritten for professional re binding. 任何字典也必须相应更新并重复进行人工翻译。 Any dictionary must be updated and repeated human translation. 因此,进行更新及增加非常耗费人力及时间。 Therefore, to update and increase labor intensive and time.

[0010] 这些BAS的用户界面-通常是由计算机显示的图形用户界面(graphical userinterface ;CTI) _通常是静态的,并迫使用户以预定方式执行任务及浏览信息。 [0010] These BAS user interface - GUI (graphical userinterface; CTI) is usually displayed by the computer _ usually static, and forcing the user to view information and perform tasks in a predetermined manner. 若要改变用户界面的工作方式,则需要进行定制,而这将超出普通用户的能力,因为这些用户一般未受过计算机编程训练。 To change the user interface work, they need to be customized, which would exceed the capacity of ordinary users, as these users generally have not received training in computer programming.

[0011] 现有的BAS也不能提供可访问性、定制化、及系统用户所希望的管理工具。 [0011] existing BAS does not provide the accessibility, customization, and system management tools desired by the user. 当前的BAS很难进行大规模管理一例如由区域性或全国性的零售商或其它组织进行管理,且在管理时在通信方面非常繁琐。 The current BAS difficult to manage a large-scale, for example, managed by regional or national retailers or other organizations, and in the management of the communication is very cumbersome. 另外,尽管现在已具有且在使用基于互联网且可访问的系统,然而这些系统存在几种缺陷。 In addition, although it already has and is using the Internet-based and accessible system, however, the existence of these systems are several drawbacks. 许多现有的互联网BAS是作为现有BAS的附件而形成,因而具有集成的、专用的设计。 Many existing conventional Internet as an attachment BAS BAS is formed, which has an integrated, special design. 这些系统不能提供与非本机系统及子系统进行接口所需的适配性及可扩展性,这是在现有结构中建置大规模系统时所存在的特定问题。 These systems do not provide adaptability and scalability required for interface with the non-native systems and subsystems, which is a particular problem in the prior build large-scale system configuration is present. 现有系统也不能提供更高层次的可扩展性、可配置性及定制化工具。 Existing systems can not provide a higher level of scalability, configurability and customization tools.

[0012] 近来,ASHRAE已发布了XML及BACnet™网络服务接口规范。 [0012] Recently, ASHRAE has published BACnet ™ and XML web services interface specification. 根据ASHRAE,该接口打算对通信协议保持中立,因为所规定的网络服务可与任一种基本协议一起使用。 According to the ASHRAE, the interface is intended to be neutral to the communication protocol, as specified network services can be used with any of a basic protocol. 此种方法是最小共同点(common denominator)方法,其可适用于多个BACnet™版本规范,其中BAS服务是由协议的内在功能进行支持。 This method is the smallest common denominator (common denominator) method, which is applicable to multiple BACnet ™ version of the specification, which the BAS service is supported by the internal functions of the protocol. 然而,此种方法仍需要利用网关或翻译来将特殊或专用功能规范化,且还需要在各种协议之间进行翻译或规范化,而不是更平滑地内在地运行每一种协议。 However, this method still requires the use of a gateway or translation function or dedicated to a special standardized, and also need to be translated or normalized between the various protocols, rather than a more smoothly operating each protocol internally. 此外,尽管可对各种功能进行翻译及规范化,然而常常不能为数据提供完整的语义或上下文。 In addition, although the various functions can be translated and standardized, however, often do not provide a complete context for the semantic or data. 换句话说,尽管最小共同点系统可辨别出数据为红、蓝、或绿,然而这些系统不能辨别这些颜色的深浅,且当被只统一成主色时,数据会丧失一定程度的意义。 In other words, although the smallest common denominator system can recognize the data as red, blue, or green, however, these systems can not distinguish shades of these colors, and only when it is unified into a main color, the data will lose a certain degree of sense.

[0013] 因此,需要一种特别是从用户角度看来,具备高级用户定制功能及增强的通信、管理及控制选项的智能BAS。 [0013] Thus, an especially from the user point of view, with advanced customization capabilities and enhanced intelligence BAS communication, management, and control options.

[0063] 在图3中绘示BAS 10的主数据实体。 [0063] BAS master data entities shown in FIG 10. 在最基本层次上,每一地点110均是一个或多个面板112 (面板对象)的集合,且每一面板112均是一个或多个对象的集合,为在系统BAS 10内实现可操作性,这一个或多个对象可能需要扩展130。 At the most basic level, each site 110 are a set of one or more panels 112 (panel objects), and each panel 112 are a collection of one or more objects, in order to achieve operability system BAS 10 this may require one or more objects extension 130. 地点110可以是由ESE 20所管理的单个地点(即建筑物)、或者是一系列地点。 Location 110 may be a single location (i.e., building) managed by the ESE 20, or a series of locations. 地点110还包括用于背景任务的信息。 Place 110 also includes background information for the task. 面板112是地点110的已知的单个面板112或一系列面板、以及ESE 20管理这些特定面板所需的信息。 Panel 112 is information required for the known single panel or series of panels 112, and ESE 20 manage specific panel location 110. 在一实施例中,该信息可包含面板类型、版本、厂商、以及忽略标记符(ignoreflag)。 In one embodiment, the information may comprise the panel type, version, manufacturer, and ignore tag (ignoreflag). 对象120是存在于每一面板112中的一系列对象,用于进行导航、显示及管理。 Object 120 is present in each panel 112 in a series of objects, for navigation, display and management. 对象扩展130是保存于ESE 20上的专用于每一对象120的信息,由与每一对象120相关联的元数据进行描述。 Object 130 is stored in the extended ESE 20 is information specific to each object 120, the metadata 120 associated with each object is described by the. 对象扩展130例如用于驱动用户界面160,以用于确定例如以下等事项:当一对象按对象配置处于不同家族中时,该具体对象属于哪一家族。 Extension 130 for driving an object, for example, a user interface 160, for example, for determining other matters: when a configuration by object in a different family, which belongs to the family of the particular subject.

[0064] 在一实施例中,将地点110及对象120集成入BAS 10内是通过一发现过程实现的。 [0064] In one embodiment, the locations 110 and 120 integrated into the objects 10 BAS is achieved by a discovery process. 例如,在一位置处安装新面板对象112 (图I中的面板40),且新面板对象112要并入BAS10中。 For example, to install a new panel object 112 (FIG. I panel 40) at a location, object 112 and the new panel to be incorporated in BAS10. ESE 20可操作地执行一或多个算法,所述算法发现BAS 10内的新面板对象112 (面板40)并接着分析现有编程,以首先判断面板对象112是否确实是新的、或者是否先前在BAS 10内发现过面板对象112。 ESE 20 is operable to perform one or more algorithms that find the new object within the panel BAS 10 112 (panel 40) and then analyze existing programming to object 112 first determines whether the panel is really new, or has previously panel object 112 discovered in the BAS 10. 一旦判断出面板对象112是新增的,ESE 20便接着获得来自及关于面板对象112的任何相关的或必要的信息,例如厂商、版本及所支持的协议,以将面板40集成于BAS 10内,然后执行正在进行的重新配置。 Once it is determined that the object 112 is a new panel, ESE 20 will then be obtained, for example, manufacturers, versions, and protocols supported by any relevant or essential information about the object 112 from the panel and to the panel 40 is integrated within BAS 10 and then perform ongoing reconfiguration. 在其它实施例中,将地点110及/或对象120集成于BAS 10内是手动发起及/或完成的。 In other embodiments, the site 110 and / or object 120 integrated within the BAS 10 is manually initiated and / or completed.

[0065] 在发现或手动集成过程中,ESE 20可获得关于一对象的高级或低级信息。 [0065] In the discovery or manual integration process, ESE 20 obtain information about a high-level or low-level object. 在一种情形中,ESE 20判断第一新发现的对象是熟悉的对象,例如来自共同的厂商抑或类似于或相同于BAS 10内的一或多个已知对象。 In one case, ESE 20 determines a first target newly discovered familiar objects, such as from common vendors or whether similar or identical to one or more known objects in the BAS 10. 此种判断一般是由ESE 20至少部分地根据由所发现的自我描述性对象所提供的信息而作出。 Such a determination is generally made from the ESE 20 is at least partially based on information from the self-descriptive objects found is provided. 因此,ESE 20能够获得或得知关于第一新发现对象的更高级信息,并自动且不需要用户干预地与该对象建立更复杂的通信。 Therefore, ESE 20 can obtain or learn more advanced information about the first newly discovered object, and automatically and does not require user intervention to build more complex communication with the object. 相比之下,第二新发现的对象对于ESE 20而言可能并不熟悉或不如第一所发现对象熟悉,因为第二对象与不同厂商相关联、运行新的版本、或者具有此前未纳入BAS 10中的某种其它特征。 In contrast, the second newly discovered objects may not be familiar or rather first discovered the object in terms familiar to the ESE 20, because the second object associated with the new version, run with different manufacturers, or has not previously included in BAS 10 some other features. 一般而言,ESE 20能够与像第二新发现对象一样的对象建立通信,但建立较低层次的通信。 In general, ESE 20 can establish communication with the second as the newly discovered object is the same object, but to establish a low-level communication. 然而,为建立更高层次的、甚至基本的通信,可能需要用户提供信息,以将不熟悉的对象添加至BASlO中或补充在发现过程中所获得的信息。 However, in order to establish a higher level, even basic communication, the user may be required to provide information to the unfamiliar object is added to BASlO or supplement information obtained during the discovery process.

[0066] 此外,用户所提供的信息可视需要且有选择地提供给BAS 10,尤其是ESE 20,以为用户提供方便及实现管理目的。 [0066] Further, the information provided by the user may optionally and selectively supplied to the BAS 10, especially ESE 20, provide a user with convenience and achieve the object management. 例如,在一实施例中,BAS 10及ESE 20还允许用户定义既定地点的属性,以实现分组目的或其它目的。 For example, in one embodiment, BAS 10 and ESE 20 further allows user-defined attribute predetermined location, in order to achieve the object of the packets or other purposes. 在一实施例中,至少,每一地点110均与地理及类型属性相关联,并提供搜索功能以允许用户搜索地点或成组的地点。 In this embodiment, at least, each location 110 is associated with a geographic attribute and type of embodiment, and provides a search function to allow a user to search sites or groups of sites. ESE 20较佳更能适应BAS 10内整个地点110的增加、移除及一般管理。 ESE 20 preferably can adapt to the overall increase in BAS 10 locations 110, removing and general management.

[0067] 这些及其它定制及管理任务是由用户通过用户界面实施。 [0067] These and other customization and management tasks are implemented by a user through a user interface. 一般而言,用户界面是由装置22在ESE 20的通信协助下进行视觉显示。 In general, the user interface is a visual device 22 at the communication assistance ESE 20. 用户界面以所链接的具有网络功能的页面形式显示与BAS 10所管理的建筑物、地点或空间相关的BAS 10信息,其中所述页面包含具有按钮及链接的交互式表格。 The user interface displays BAS 10 managed by the building, site or spatial information related to BAS 10 in the form of a page linked network function, wherein the interactive page comprises a table with buttons and links. 还参见图2,装置22包含网络浏览器66,网络浏览器66可操作地以通信方式耦合至服务器64,以加载及显示用户界面。 Referring also to FIG. 2, apparatus 22 includes a web browser 66, the web browser 66 is operably communicatively coupled to a server 64, to load and display the user interface.
