Smart controller system features electricity savings of 20-50%

The Technology Consortium Limited (TTC) wins InnoVision Technology Award with their high efficiency local processor energy saving system, saving an average 30% of electricity


Following yTTC HELPears of International research, development, trials, and installations, Technology Consortium Limited (TTC) has introduced the H.E.L.P. (High Efficiency Local Processor) energy saving, smart controller system to the North American market. In a recent competition for “…innovative application or development of a technology-based product, process, or service…” a panel of industry judges presented TTC with the InnoVision Technology Award.

By consuming up to seventy percent (70%) of industrial electricity, motors waste more energy than any other electrical device. Motors operate over half of the time where full power is not needed or desired; this wastes energy. The H.E.L.P. System “cycles-down” the motor during periods of reduced demand. This control protocol saves an average of thirty percent of the (kW) electricity used in motorized equipment; with many applications exceeding this efficiency.

The Technology Consortium, Ltd. is the exclusive North American distributer of this new energy savings technology. Their president, Ron Hoffman, recently said, “With the international response and recognition this new technology is receiving, we will soon need to begin our domestic manufacturing. The energy reducing H.E.L.P. System qualifies for state, federal, and utility financial incentives as well as LEED credits. The H.E.L.P. System will soon become the “green” standard for all responsible facilities.”
