INTELLIGENT CONTROLS FOR COMMERCIAL HVAC, REFRIGERATION, FAN AND PUMP MOTORS

  •  4-8 WIRE INTERFACE

  • 15-30 MINUTE INSTALLATION

IntelliACC instantly transforms <5-HP motors into self-managing variable speed drive motors.

CUBE LAW I.png

Cube Law: the relationship between centrifugal pump and fan speeds and their energy needs is known as Cube Law - a small increase in pump or fan speed requires a lot more power; conversely, a modest speed reduction gives significant energy savings. Pumps or fans running 20% slower [.8 x .8 x .8 = 51.2%] use 48.8% less power, at half-speed [.5 x .5 x .5 = 12.5%] only one-eighth of the power is needed compared to motors running at full speed.

IntelliACC delivers the considerable savings that would be achieved by installing VSDs without their high cost and without disruptive and expensive construction efforts. IntelliACC is a revolutionary, patented intelligent control device that identifies a motor's point of maximum HP, not the maximum speed but the motor's most mechanically efficient operating point. IntelliACC holds the motor at or near this optimal operating point across much of its operating range. Maintaining the optimal torque point produces constant maximum mechanical efficiency and superior energy efficiency. By operating at a lower speed, even for a longer durations, IntelliACC harvests the major added energy-saving benefit of CUBE LAW, whereby 20% lower fan speed uses approximately 50% less power.

   ■   Electric - stoves, fans, lights, coils.

         • 12% to > 60% Electricity Savings.

   ■   A/C’s - central, window, split, PTACs.

         • 14% to >44% Electric Savings

IntelliACC: 3 Wire Install (+ Ground)

ACC install.PNG

IntelliHVAC & IntelliIPTACDC installs simply by connecting color-coded leads to the color-coded low voltage control wiring terminals that are the standard in most <20 ton HVAC units. The easy 15-30 minute installation deliver 15-30% improved energy efficiency in both cooling and heating modes.

HVAC systems are not designed to work at optimal efficiency. There is a universally inefficient relationship among major system elements: condensers, blower fans and condenser fans - which cause significant energy loss. IntelliHVAC and IntelliIPTACDC improves HVAC energy efficiency by up to 30% by intelligently managing these energy-consuming A/C Unit processes.

  1. When thermostats reach a set-point an HVAC system completes its cycle but does not use all the energy from the coil due to inadequate blower fan run-time. IntelliHVAC and IntelliIPTACDC recover the normally wasted latent energy from the coil by applying intelligent variable timing to the blower fan, creating an efficient correlation between the blower fan run-time and the length of compressor run-time.

  2. IntelliHVAC and IntelliPTACDC also intelligently manage the compressor to pause when the coil is fully charged.

OIL FOULING

According to ASHRAE, oil fouling causes thermal impedance in 100% of cooling systems; this wastes up to 30% of cooling capacity, costs up to 30% more to run equipment and forces systems run 30% harder to compensate.

100% FIXED IN 100 HOURS

ICE Cold4.png

GAIN UP TO 30% IMPROVED SYSTEM EFFICIENCY QUICKLY, EASILY AND INEXPENSIVELY: 
ASHRAE confirms that performance degrades by up to 30% due to the build-up of lubricants on internal coil surfaces. EDGE's solution has been tested and proven to eliminate oil fouling, restoring this lost efficiency and creating large energy, cost and maintenance savings.

ECORE-CI
AI-DRIVEN CENTRALIZED HVAC OPTIMIZATION

ECORE-CI® (ECORE - Efficient COoling and REfrigeration)

AI-Driven Energy Conservation Technology

Minimal Construction Efforts

20%-40% Energy Reduction

ECORE-CI samples conditions continuously and automatically adjusts setpoints to minimize kWh/Ton

ECORE.PNG

ECORE-CI® is Online Energy Manager, LLC's patented AI/Machine-Learning energy optimization technology for large centralized HVAC, Cooling and Refrigeration Systems. ECORE  actively analyzes and automatically adjusts set points and load balances, even across multiple chillers and heat-pumps, yielding 20-40% energy and cost savings - guaranteed. ECORE automatically responds to changing variables, such as load, ambient air temperature, relative humidity, system temperature and pressures and instructs the BMS/BAS system to make continuous small adjustments; recalibrating for optimal performance without any effect on manufacturer warrantees. Chillers running inefficiently also results in decreased equipment reliability, increased maintenance intervals, and shortened lifespan.

 

According to the US Department of Energy, Chillers are the single largest energy-users in facilities and typically consume over 40% of the total building electrical usage. Chillers use approximately 20 percent of the total electrical power generated in North America and the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that chillers expend up to 35 percent energy through inefficiency. With over 100,000 chillers in the United States alone, inefficiency costs companies billions of dollars in energy annually.

ECORE-CI

Harnessing the first law of thermodynamics and using machine learning, the ECORE platform dynamically determines and sets system parameters to obtain the lowest energy usage at prevailing ambient conditions. ECORE works within the chiller manufacturer specifications, thus not impacting warranties, but simply operating the chiller system in the most energy-efficient manner as recommended by the chiller manufacturer.
 

The platform uses proprietary and customized algorithms that enables the chiller system to continuously adjust to changing load and ambient conditions to calibrate to the manufacturer's recommended flow, temperature, and other set-points.
