Reduce the Energy Consumption of Your Air-Cooled Chillers
Reduce energy consumption by up to 20-25% while extending your chiller's and condenser's useful life and reduce life-cycle cost.
Condenser Fan Pak
is an innovative Schneider Electric™ solution that incorporates Floating High Pressure (FHP) control and Variable Speed Drive (VSD) fan operation for multi-fan, air-cooled chillers and condensers 50-500 tons.
Designed to benefit both new and existing HVAC/R equipment, these solutions allow to reduce the energy consumption of your air-cooled chillers and condensers by up to 20-25% for a fraction of the cost of complete replacement. The unit is shipped preprogrammed, wired, fully tested, and ready to optimize the operation of your air-cooled chiller or condenser.


Case Study

A six-month customer field test was conducted for an air-cooled chiller used in a typical commercial application. The scheduled daily operation of the chiller was between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. During the hours of operation, the chiller was automatically switched between the original OEM controls and the Schneider Electric™ Condenser Fan Pak (CFP). With each run cycle, kWh measurements were taken. The field test confirmed the CFP can save up to 30% kW. The chart below is a 12-hour snapshot of the actual chiller operation.

Wireless technology is changing the playing field for building owners. That’s cool.
2015-01-30 Wireless technology is changing the playing field for building owners. That’s cool.
Wireless technology drives devices that we use every day – our smart phones, tablets, laptops, GPS, and more. How cool is that for us? Wireless technology can also mean better performance and energy savings for commercial buildings. How cool is that for those buildings?

But wait – what does wireless have to do with energy?

Advanced wireless technology offers new choices for building controls and management. That’s important for making Building Management Systems (BMS) more affordable and energy-efficient. It’s also quite cool.

Research by ENERGY STAR indicates that commercial office buildings waste as much as 30% of their energy consumption. A BMS can help control that energy use; however, existing buildings and smaller enterprises sometimes struggle to justify investing in a BMS, in part because a retrofit wiring installation can be cost-prohibitive and disruptive. With a wireless building management solution, there are significantly fewer wires to run…typically no renovation…and minimal disruption to business.... Read more »

Leveraging Wireless Technology to Reduce Building Energy Costs
EnOcean CEO: energy harvesting wireless sensors are the “Things” in the Internet of Things
2015-01-23 EnOcean CEO: energy harvesting wireless sensors are the “Things” in the Internet of Things
Energy is within reach everywhere, it just needs to be harvested: this is the principle of energy harvesting.
Energy harvesting wireless solutions are already well established in the commercial building automation sector and for smart home systems. However, the technology is just getting started.

In 2015, new application fields for batteryless wireless communication will emerge to further enhance the world around us.


The “Forget Me Not” challenge at the end of 2014, a global design competition organized by the element14 community, gave us a taste of the technology’s possibilities. Engineers from around the world applied with their ideas for pioneering applications in the field of wireless monitoring and automation to perform tasks in our modern lives.


Most of these engineers were designing with energy harvesting wireless technology for the first time and this was no hurdle at all. On the contrary, the possibilities of sensors gaining their energy from the surrounding environment inspired many new ideas.


The flexibility of self-powering made the designers think about placing sensors in areas where data collecting devices that need maintenance or cables are not an option – a key parameter for the internet of things.


Powering sensors from the surrounding environment is not just a cool technology, it also ensures there is never any interruption in data collection needed to improve the interaction with our world. Read the article here
