As seen at AHR: Remote monitoring of pump performance
Taco expands its iWorX control platform to provide a dynamic graphical interface for remote monitoring of pump and system performance in real time.
Taco expands its iWorX control platform to provide a dynamic graphical interface for remote monitoring of pump and system performance in real time. iWorX SelfSensing ProView control works in concert with SelfSensing ProBalancepumps. Included in the package is the new OneTouch ProBalance feature that permits automatic balancing of a pump (and by extension, the entire hydronic system) with one click of the mouse. With Taco’s latest technology, the new pumps now have plug-and-play connection with all major building automation systems.
When installing the pumps with the iWorX ProView module, the technology produces automatically rendered graphics that show pump performance, all system influences, energy consumption and energy saved in real time. The system also provides automatic alarming, trending capability and predictive maintenance scheduling.
A key advantage is the installer’s ability to see all facets of system performance. If adjustments are needed, he has the ability to easily balance pump curves to precisely fit system resistance. This greatly reduces system balancing and commissioning time while moving that capability to the installer, instead of an expensive add-on control or commissioning agent.
