The Energy Management Starter (EMS™) incorporates BACnet communications for ease of integration with control systems and utility-grade metering for energy management. The EMS, designed to work with HVAC fans, pumps, and various other equipment, features an externally accessible keypad and LCD for ease of use and avoids unnecessary contact with potentially live electrical components. Using power monitoring rather than current monitoring, the EMS is capable of accurately detecting belt loss or coupling shear to provide motor protection. Damper control and fireman’s override (smoke purge) are standard. A wide range of electronic overload conditions (class 1-30) and wide range voltage operation (120 to 600 vac) are supported, preventing installation callbacks due to incorrectly sized components. Kilowatt hour information and instantaneous kilowatt metering are provided to enable the building automation system to do trending and control.
