Recording temperature across the college site helps identify patterns in specific areas and helps maintain the correct environmental conditions overall.
Cambridge Regional College is one of the largest Further
Education colleges in the region, providing a wide range of full
and part-time courses, apprenticeships and Higher Education
programmes in modern purpose-built learning areas.
The college is using six Tinytag Talk 2 data
loggers, deployed around the site as and when required, to
record temperatures in specific areas. Regular monitoring and
analysis of recorded data allows any queries to be dealt with, and
informed decisions to be made about any possible issues and changes
that need to be made in the area.
Depending on the nature of the issue, remedial actions taken can
range from physical changes, to plant or environment, to virtual
changes on the BMS.
Tinytags were recommended by the college's M&E contractor.
Operations Manager Mark Neville is responsible for the day to day
management of facilities including building fabric, M&E, fire
and security. He has found the Tinytags are small enough to be
located discreetly whilst being robust enough to cope with any
environment encountered on site. Mark comments, "They are easy to
configure and the Tinytag Explorer software
enables the data to be presented in graph form, so direct
comparisons can be made. The data is easily retrieved and stored in
both table and graph format, and file names can be specified that
are appropriate to each project."
