AERCO’s OnAER Remote Monitoring Service continuously monitors systems and immediately alerts users via e-mail to a fault occurrence or decline in equipment performance. The OnAER Remote Monitoring Service uses computer tracking to monitor, record, and analyze AERCO boiler systems. Problems in systems are pinpointed in real time, allowing for quick resolution and preventing lost revenue due to undetected faults. Early detection and alerts sent by the system can help avoid lengthy and expensive service interruption, increasing worker efficiency. If noncritical problems are detected, customers have the opportunity to schedule service at their convenience to minimize disruptions.

The Building Automation Starter (BAS) motor controls from Cerus feature the patent-pending Smartstart Control Module for seamless integration with digital controls. The starters accept dry voltage inputs from 12 to 250 Vac for activation by control systems without interposing relays. Other control options include auto run, fireman’s override, fault, proof of flow to detect loss of load, and SmartStart predictive calibration. Integrated LED pilot lights and Hand/Off/Auto keypad are standard, simplifying unit setup and verification. A single model accepts 208 to 600 Vac and motor loads up to 40 A, eliminating discrete thermal overloads and numerous contactor coil voltages.
