BECSys Pool Controllers lead the way in Energy Saving and Communications Technology

BECSys Pool Controllers lead the way in Energy Saving and Communications Technology
February 17, 2020

Installed at aquatic centres across Australia - including the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre, Gold Coast Aquatic Centre and Cairn’s Tobruk War Memorial Aquatic Centre - BECSys5 and Sys7 controllers provide a range of energy saving features.

They can be set up to control ‘UV System turndown’ to low output and can reduce plant flow (via an installed Variable Speed Drive or VSD) at times of optimum water quality and light bather loadings.

• UV Turndown is set up by adding a Total Chlorine probe and flowcell to the controller sample line, so that the controller gives a Combined Chlorine display and a UV turndown setpoint (for example, 0.2mg/L combined chlorine) is used to reduce UV power consumption and extend lamplife at times of the highest water quality

• Reduced plant flow and energy consumption can be achieved in the same way, or on a timer basis (such as at night) it could be reduced or turned off, via the addition of a VSD to the recirculation pump(s). Importantly a special refresh program increases flow temporarily during the night to recirculate chemicals at intervals, then efficiently reduces flow again.

BECSys controllers also offer state-of-the-art remote communications with the revolutionary ‘EZConnect’ system enabling simple connection from your phone to monitor the controller readings from anywhere.

When in the office ‘BECSys for Windows’ PC software enables remote monitoring and full remote control functionality to the operator. Building management computer style graphing and analysis software, included with the controllers, automatically downloads history from the controller datalogging. It then plots the readings graphically - a record that continuously grows on the hard drive for future reference and scrutiny as required.

An invaluable benefit of the history logs is the addition of event logs showing chemical feeder and pool plant activity which enables accurate fine tuning of dosing rates to optimise control behaviour. This benefits bathers with the highest water quality and leads to ever more economical operations.
