Building Energy ManagementSystem ControllerA More Efficient Alternativefor Energy ManagementOur Building Energy Management System (BEMS) is driven by our USE Controller™,an intelligent device that manages the transfer of energy usage data from sensorsand meters strategically placed throughout your buildings. USE Controller allowsyou to precisely monitor and control boiler functions based on interior and exteriortemperatures, unlike antiquated heat timing devices that only control cycling of theboiler based on an outside sensor. The boiler turns on for only as long as it takes todeliver exactly the right amount of heat to keep occupants comfortable. This robustenergy management tool provides immediate and significant energy savings witha rapid payback in less than 2 years.
Achieve Even Greater Controlof Building Energy UsageUSE Controller can be monitored on-site at your building or remotely through ourweb-based building energy management dashboard, the USE Manager™. You canview – in real-time – a summary of fuel consumption or drill down for detailed reportingof boiler functions, gas use, oil tank levels and interior space temperatures among otherfeatures. This robust energy management tool provides the information you need tomake short- and long-term decisions that impact operational costs, respond to alerts,and precisely track the energy performance of your buildings through a single interface.Contact us today to learn more.Voltage Input. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 120 VAC Other I/O . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4-20 mA Output/0 - 10V InputPower Consumption . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 120 VA max Relay Contact Rating . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5A, 240VACOperating Ambient Temperature . . . 10 to 120 deg.
