The Energy Management Starter (EMS) by Cerus Industrial integrates with control systems by incorporating BACnet communications and providing 0.5%-accuracy, utility-grade metering for energy management. Using power monitoring rather than current monitoring, the EMS can detect belt loss or coupling sheer accurately without difficult adjustments. A wide-range, class 5 to 30 electronic overload and wide-range voltage operation (120 to 480) Vac prevents installation call-backs due to mis-sized thermal overloads and nuisance trips. Utility grade metering helps to control energy consumption within buildings. The EMS delivers valuable point-of-use energy consumption data via BACnet communication, pulse, or analog output signals.
