A new Energy Management System (EMS) has been unveiled by Vickers. Designed to deliver accurate heating control with maximum efficiency, the new system enables commercial and industrial premises to gain control of their heating, and reduce energy bills and CO2 emissions.
Complete with an improved touch screen controller, the new EMS features digital air sensors located in each zone to optimise the performance of a heating system. Calibrated to +/- 0.1°C, the digital air sensors enable the system to eliminate any wasted energy with accuracy, as integral algorithms process both internal and external temperatures to automatically adjust the heaters to achieve a pre-set temperature. The sensors also have the capability to manage the recirculation of quality air instead of always pulling air in from the outside.
Thanks to an advanced self-learning programme, the system can also calculate the necessary burn time for each heater to achieve its target temperature, and can detect how long a heater will take to cool down and switch the heater off accordingly.
Chris Pearson, Managing Director at Vickers commented: “With the Energy Saving Trust claiming that every degree over the target temperature will add 10% to a company’s fuel spend, this system will ultimately save significant amounts of money, as well as energy and CO2 emissions. Indeed, with typical payback periods of just two to three years, it’s an investment that will yield substantial returns for most companies.”
EMS can be monitored from any location thanks to cloud-based technology. In addition to viewing performance and energy usage, changes can be made from any internet-enabled device. Proactive alerts and messaging are sent via the outstations and the portal – Vickers Vision – will display alerts, zone-by-zone usage and alarms. Automated monthly reports can also be generated to show the benefits gained from installing the system.
The system comes with a Vickers 12-month warranty and service agreement which includes an onsite annual health check, engineer call outs, and software updates.
