ECM: The EC Manager control unit for smart energy saving

The EC series is considered as one of the most complete and innovative technological control systems for optimising the function of EC fans (with single and three-phase motor). This control unit allows the ventilation system to be adjusted to specific energy saving requirements, and boosts the potential of the EC fans.

Sustainability and perfect energy consumption are guaranteed by SELPRO's expertise, along with the partnership with the LUVE Group and ebm-papst.

ECM: The EC Manager control unit for smart energy saving

The cooperation between SELPRO, LUVE Group and ebm-papst has led to the development of the ECM control system (EC Manager), which combines all specific features for controlling wet and dry systems in HVAC/R systems in a single plug & play device.

The combination of SELPRO's expertise, the MODBUS RTU from ebm-papst the LUVE Group's experience enables a new technical standard. This makes the control of ventilated heat exchangers simpler and more efficient, further increasing the potential of ebm-papst's EC technology for saving energy.

With ECM, the various operating parameters (input register and operating register) of the fans and the control system are always available thanks to RS-485 (MODBUS-RTU) serial data transfer.

ECM is available with the protection rating IP55 or for DIN rail application. It can be operated as a stand-alone unit or connected via a "bridging function" to an external control unit or monitoring system, from which it receives the operating commands and to which it transfers all information. Furthermore, it is able to monitor, receive and save all operating parameters and the warning and system alarms (black box function) that can be analysed in the event of a technical system error. It can also use the operating parameters to stabilise and optimise the fan control (PID control with autotuning function).

The IES software for intelligent energy saving is integrated in the EC Manager's plug & play structure. It contains all technical controls for ventilated heat exchangers (condensers and heat exchangers) and allows even an untrained user to make the system ready for operation quickly and simply.

The EC manager automatically sets all operating parameters and is pre-programmed for the control of fans and adiabatic systems (adiabatic boosters). Thanks to SELPRO's Clima-Sinergy software (with know-how protection function), the user can select and use one of the 14 function codes.

The EC manager, which has been approved by ebm-papst and used successfully by the LUVE Group since 2010 on HVAC/R systems, is considered one of the most innovative and complete technological solutions for optimising the overall control of EC motors in axial and centrifugal fans. Combined with the benefits of EC fans from ebm-papst, this controller enables greater system efficiency and a significant reduction in energy consumption.
