Powerhouse Dynamics expands equipment control functionality
Powerhouse Dynamics has expanded the remote equipment control functionality of its enterprise energy and asset management system. In addition, the company reported that the system has been renamed SiteSage, replacing the eMonitor name by which it was previously known.
SiteSage is designed for multi-site operators of small commercial facilities, such as QSRs and c-stores, according to a news release.
SiteSage gives customers central control of HVAC and other equipment via an intuitive Web interface and mobile apps. It also remotely monitors equipment and uses sophisticated analytics to diagnose performance issues, enhance maintenance and identify savings opportunities, the release said.
The new controller can manage multiple zones, each supporting multiple circuits, and control both single-phase equipment, such as lighting, and three-phase equipment, such as exhaust fans.
"With the new SiteSage Controller, the ability to control equipment has been extended beyond HVAC to any equipment, including lighting," said Jason Roeder, director of energy products and services for Powerhouse Dynamics. "With the unique ability to set multiple schedules of varying types per piece of equipment, this new capability represents a significant advance in control flexibility and dramatically expands SiteSage functionality."
