General Purpose Control
One advantage of network control is the ability to add applications onto an existing network without the need to build out a new-dedicated infrastructure. ControlScope provides the ability to add general purpose controls to integrate management of a variety of other devices such as fans, motors, pumps and compressors through a single user interface–control via a schedule, occupancy detection or in response to Demand Response load shed events.
One common application at warehouses and distribution centers is the exhaust fan. These large industrial grade fans can be a huge energy drain. ControlScope can turn fans off when space is unoccupied or run them based on schedule. The fans can be programmed to crank in a sequence to reduce the sudden current surge and avoid the demand response peak load penalty imposed by utilities. Wireless general purpose I/O controllers provide simple control, monitoring and management of a variety of building loads that are often overlooked for energy savings opportunities.
