Eniscope Hybrid – Unique Hardware

The Eniscope Hybrid solution is unique for a number of reasons:-

First: Because it has its own on-board meters, powerful internal computer and web-server. This means information can be stored, collated and then exported to the World Wide Web with the utmost convenience, at which point it can be accessed securely from anywhere in the world on a PC, laptop or hand-held device. 

Second: It is a complete plug-and-play solution that can be installed by any competent electrician using safe, low cost 333mV CT’s, and be up and running in a few hours! Furthermore because it is web-enabled it can be upgraded with any software enhancements remotely.

Third: Unlike the so-called ‘smart’ meters, our Eniscope Meters are gathering information and exporting data in REAL, real-time… literally as it happens. It is also measuring ALL the important parameters. Unlike lesser systems… we do not ‘assume’ or ‘guess’ important parameters like voltage… we measure everything with pinpoint accuracy.

Fourth: It’s very flexible... You can start your energy management programme with just one single metering point on either the whole supply – or one area of the building – or even one critical piece of equipment. Thereafter, as you begin to appreciate the benefits of having everything totally transparent you can add sub-metering points as you like and they can be easily integrated together and viewed simultaneously via our Analytics Software.

Next Generation

We are now completing the software drivers to enable:

  • Provision of 3G and WIFI enabled communication.
  • Up to 8 additional pulse inputs to be separately monitored (e.g. gas, water, oil etc.)
  • Provision of Modbus one wire capability to enable up to a further 32 single phase metering points via simple daisy-chain communication with any combination of CUES or ACES Hybrid.

This means that the Eniscope Hybrid has been designed to work in conjunction with, and communicate directly with any number of other BEST load-side products such as ACES, our patented Air Conditioning Energy Saver and CUES, our patented Chilled Unit Energy Saver. When released these products will have on-board single phase metering capability designed to gather a wealth of additional information on the performance of individual appliances, including energy consumption and operating temperatures leading to pre-emptive maintenance alerts.

iMEC - Intelligent Motor Energy Controller

Electric motors and the systems they drive are the single largest consumer of electricity worldwide, accounting for more than 40% of global electricity consumption.

Motors are widely used in both commercial and industrial manufacturing processes, where they can account for up to 54% of total electricity use.

BEST’s Intelligent Motor Controllers (iMEC), are used to reduce the energy consumption of motors in commercial applications across the globe, often improving equipment performance and reliability at the same time.

The iMEC range of products includes controllers for single-phase and three-phase applications.

BEST’s Single-phase Intelligent Motor Energy Controller (iMEC) ensures motor efficiency by reading a form of feedback on the power supply as demand changes at the motor shaft, in  effect turning the motor into its own load sensor.

Using this feedback iMEC electronically ‘sizes’ a motor to both its application and load cycle every fraction of a second, ensuring it draws just the right amount of power required at any instant in time. It also enables the motor to run as a much more resistive load improving power factor quality.

Starting the motor is made smoother through a process of controlled acceleration, minimizing wear and tear and helping prevent maximum demand charges often associated with starting loaded motors.

 

iMEC will constantly monitor the ‘load’ on the motor every 100th of a second and ensure the motor has only the exact amount of power it requires at any instant in time to do the required job of work. iMEC will also enable the motor to run as a much more ‘resistive’ load thereby further improving power factor quality. Initial starting of the motor is made much smoother thanks to the introduction of controlled acceleration. Power is ramped up gradually at each starting cycle, which minimizes wear and tear in addition to reducing maximum demand charges often associated with starting loaded motors. In effect iMEC electronically ‘sizes’ the motor to both its application and load cycle every fraction of a second, ensuring the motor uses just the right amount of power it needs to at any instant in time – no more – no less!

 

The iMEC range of Intelligent Motor Controllers will:

  • Save up to 40% in energy costs
  • Reduce peak demand charges
  • Improve power factor
  • Reduce heat, noise and vibration
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Extend equipment life

BEST manufacture a range of iMEC solutions for single-phase applications up to 20AMP. A full range of proprietary 3-Phase applications is also on hand with special orders available ranging from 3-1000 kW.

LESS - Lighting Energy Saver System

BEST’s Light Energy Saver System (LESS) is a range of lighting controls used across the globe to reduce energy consumption within commercial and institutional environments. The LESS range includes intelligent photocells, occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting sensors. In the right applications, savings of up to 50% are possible.

 

The BEST LESS range introduces intelligence into your existing lighting system. State of the art occupancy detection ensures that lights are turned off when they are not needed. Daylight Harvesting sensors can switch off your lighting upon the detection of sufficient natural light and also respond dynamically to the changes in that light by intelligently adjusting light intensity to maintain perfect lighting levels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Consider for a moment what businesses you know that use lighting?.... Maybe we should change that question and ask, what businesses do you know that do not use lighting? Im sure the answer is NONE! For how would you run your business without lighting?

We have come a long way since the first development in electric lighting by Sir Humphrey Davy in 1801, but despite huge scientific advancements, we still rely on artificial lighting which we continue to pay for even when it is not required. Do you realise that the incandescent light bulb used by millions upon millions of people around the globe are actually only 10% efficient, which means that 90% of the electricity used is wasted. But how can you waste electricity? Physics law states that you cannot destroy energy, you can only change its form. In the case of lighting this wasted inefficiency is transferred into HEAT, resulting in your air-conditioning units working harder and longer all because of inefficient wasteful lighting. Consider these startling facts about lighting Lighting consumes 19% of the worlds electricity generation. Emissions measured in CO2 from lighting is equivalent to 70% of global emissions from passenger vehicles. In many commercial buildings lighting accounts for 40% or more of their electricity costs. Lighting produces three times more emissions than from aviation. Consider this... when the sun is shining and lighting your office, or you walk out of the room, do you make a conscious effort to reduce your energy costs and switch off the lights? Or are you like the majority, and are just too busy.

LESS provides the solution we all need, by reducing CO2 emissions, reducing your costs, at the same time and arguably the most important factor, by maintaining and improving comfort levels. We can do all of this by adding intelligence to your existing lighting solutions. Adding intelligence to meet the lighting output required for any given scenario. This works by dynamically working with software algorithms, adjusting the florescent light fitting either in a group or individually to put only the required lighting lux/lummen level required, and then when a preset level is reached we will automatically switch the lights off, saving 100% of the costs. So as you enter through your office door at dawn your lights will automatically switch on to full brightness but as natural sun light emits through the windows, we are able to automatically, gradually dim the light fittings to maximise any natural sunlight while still maintaining a constant, perfect, working light level (lux/lumen). During the day, clouds will pass over the sun reducing the natural sunlight emitting into the room, at this point the lights will adjust their brightness accordingly. All of this will happen without you even noticing but typically saving you 35% across your lighting costs by adding intelligence. A simple and effective solution. Now ask yourself, who do I know that could benefit in reduced lighting costs? Everyone! LESS is the solution.
