enAct™ High Power Asset Controller

The new series of enLight® enAct™ controllers have been designed to add control to the existing sensor and network capability of the enLight platform. Each enAct™device can be connected to a DOLFin® Pro for Enterprise either individually or as a cluster of devices and use the mesh network to communicate with the rest of the system as well as the BMS being used. Most of the enAct™ range is DIN rail mountable and includes devices for IO control, high power asset monitoring, circuit monitoring, relay switching and appliance monitoring and control.

The enAct™ High Power Asset Monitor is designed to accurately measure power consumption of a variety of assets, using discrete measurement of both voltage and current. This provides real-time energy usage as well as a number of other variables such as active, reactive and apparent power, true RMS current and RMS voltage, frequency and power factor. The High Power Asset Monitor also includes a relay so that the asset can be taken off power temporarily as part of a Demand Side Response program where assets such as hot water tanks, chillers or freezers can be aggregated together as a load that can be flexed as the grid demands. It has a maximum power rating of 16A.

Most devices in the enAct™ range come in a standard 105mm x 90mm x 60mm DIN rail mountable package for easy mounting in plant rooms or distribution cabinets and they fit most types of enclosure for both indoor and outdoor use. The enAct devices are wired into the enLight® enTalk™ network by connecting to a DOLFin® Pro for Enterprise radio node in a loop-in/loop-out configuration to support additional sensors or actuators in the same location.

Seamless integration with enLight® lighting platform

All enAct™ devices are designed to work seamlessly with the enLight® platform. Most of the devices can be mounted in any DIN rail enclosure using a GST mini connector for mains input. Devices providing high power output use the same GST Mini connector. All devices include two RS485 connectors for connecting to an enLight® DOLFin® Pro, leaving one socket free to connect a single or a daisy chain of other sensors or actuators – subject to total power draw. Away from the vicinity of the mains powered enAct™ device, wireless enLight® enSense™ devices (coming late 2017) can connect to the network via the DOLFin® Pro for their data feed to be sent on to the enLight® enGauge™ API.

Cost effective smart FM deployment

By deploying the enLight® platform to light fittings and extending into plant rooms using powered enAct™ devices, throughout the building or campus, a whole host of smart applications can be realised by utilising the network created by the lights. Multiple wireless technologies do not need to be funded and the inherent value of the lighting estate increases as it allows resource reduction or increased efficiency projects to be deployed, without the major capital cost of their own networks. The enAct™ devices and enSense™ sensors are fully compatible with the enLight® enCore™ Management System or via other BMS platforms through the enGauge™ API.
