Ergsense Announces HVAC Energy Sensing and Trending System
Based on the Ergsense DTECTS D.HAT PDK and packing advanced technology into an easy to apply HVAC energy monitor tool that provides real time event tracking and visualization for the professional sales, installer and service organization is the job of the new Ergsense Energy Sensing & Tracking System. In a box barely larger than a mint tin, this device has three channels of voltage and current monitoring, Ergsense monitoring FW and several communications options.
Each module can collect data on three loads in single phase systems or be used to monitor three phase power with one remaining channel to monitor a single phase load, useful for 1phase to 3phase VFD systems. Incoming sensor data is via 333mV voltage out CT and 12V PTs which are available from Ergsense. Power to the module is via either a 5VDC USB charger or 8-30VDC industrial power applied to the wiring block. Mounting is via DIN rail clip, magnets or surface screws.
Ergsense Energy Sensing and Trending has been applied to HVAC for monitoring, predictive maintenance and selling efficiency upgrades. Included capabilities include cost per day tracking, operational event tracking with alerts and detailed engineering data presentation.
“Installed on a customer home HVAC circuit, Ergsense’ technology correctly identified a major failure in the outdoor unit compressor and allowed a scheduled service and subsequent system replacement without significant loss of comfort. The events captured and characterized were compressor cycling, hard starts and fuse blowing plus supplemental heat activation. We will be able to use the events in tracking of other systems based on the learned KEV feature of the technology from Ergsense. This will improve our customers experience building increased brand loyalty for us.” says Trenton Fluetsch VP of Operations Sunset Air a Pacific NW HVAC Solutions Provider.
Ergsense supplies both the hardware and customization services to adapt its Energy Sensing and Tracking to clients’ specific needs. Standard systems are available for only $299 with a $12.99 per month cloud connection fee. Contact Ergsense for more information on configuration and ordering.
