Machine and Process Management

Make the Most of Energy in your HVAC/R Systems

Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems represent 15% of all electrical power consumed worldwide, and 30% to 60% in any given facility. Providing the global market with innovative and smarter HVAC/R systems can lead to an enormous energy savings for your customers, plus greater market share for you. Your challenge is finding innovative ways to wring out the energy savings potential of your manufactured HVAC/R equipment and gain differentiation in the market.

Control systems and automation architecture offer big energy efficiency benefits 

Whether you build chillers or air-handling units in commercial buildings, residential or industrial facilities, application engineering in your manufactured HVAC/R equipment plus choosing the right automation architecture are key to distinguishing yourself at every stage of the process. 

CONTROL SYSTEMS

Innovation is the key in wringing out optimum performance and peak energy efficiency. Most of today’s facility managers require remote monitoring, utilization of cloud technology and service tools.

Case in point: Replacing conventional PID (proportional-integral-derivative) control systems with new energy-efficient predictive control loop systems can bring more than 20% in added energy efficiency, as well as extend the useful life of the equipment. 


AUTOMATION ARCHITECTURE
  •  Choice of contactors: Low-consumption contactors or contactors for specific functions can significantly increase energy efficiency and manufacturing costs, thanks to a reduced number of power contacts and very low energy consumption of the control circuit.
  • Choice of HMI (human-machine interface) graphic terminals & panels: The management of backlights in HMI panels can save 65% of the power they consume – for example, by powering off the display when the machine is in idle mode.
  • Controller sizing: Selecting the right controller for the application reduces manufacturing costs. Innovative control algorithms will reduce energy consumption.
  •  Use of LEDs: LED technology offers a low-consumption alternative to incandescent lights in push buttons and indicator lights, and should be applied systematically.
  • Variable Frequency Drives: Schneider AHRI Certified VFDs outperform the competition and provide proven reliability, setting the standard for drive performance.
