Smartcool's unique retrofit device can be installed on any air conditioning or refrigeration unit with one or two compressors, and will save up to 45% of the energy used by that unit. The most significant feature of the new ECO3™ is its ability to save energy on the cooling and heating cycles of compressor driven heat pumps, significantly increasing the opportunity for energy savings. With its IP64 enclosure rating and simple installation process, the ECO3™ can be installed quickly in virtually any location without additional and often costly protection from the elements. Once installed, the large display screen of the ECO3™ allows for easy monitoring of the amount of energy it is saving for the customer.
Smartcool's technology has over 26,000 installations worldwide, and has undergone significant independent third party testing, including field and laboratory tests by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) on behalf of Wal-Mart, the University of Miami on behalf of Florida Power and Light (FPL) and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). All of the results from these tests have been positive and have verified the effectiveness of the technology.
Building on the success of Smartcool's original product, the Energy Saving Module™, the ECO3™ expands the product line to provide an application of Smartcool's technology for smaller scale cooling systems. Smartcool's copyrighted algorithms are used in the ECO3™ to optimize the functioning of the compressors in the air conditioning or refrigeration unit. Since these compressors are responsible for approximately 70% of the energy consumed by the entire cooling system, increasing their efficiency is a necessary step in reducing the overall energy consumption of the system.
The ECO3™ achieves this energy efficiency gain by interfacing directly between the existing primary controller and the compressor to determine how often the compressor will run. By reducing the compressor’s overall run time, the ECO3™ saves an average of up to 45% kWh consumption while maintaining temperature and humidity requirements and without any impact on manufacturers' warranties. In many cases the ECO3™ may actually extend compressor life and reduce maintenance costs by improving the compressor's overall performance and reducing its run time. At any time, the ECO3™ can be put into manual bypass, and in the event of any malfunction the unit automatically fails to safe.
The ECO3™ is available in two different models, as the ECO3™ - Single or the ECO3™ Dual. The Single is compatible with single compressor air conditioning and refrigeration systems, while the Dual is compatible with any air conditioning system with two compressors. Both models comply with several standards around the world, including Australian standards, ISO 9001, UL in the US and Canada, and CE in Europe. Smartcool provides a one year manufacturer's warranty on all ECO3™ units.
