AHRI Signs Standards Agreement with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
Arlington, Va. (March 15, 2010) -- On a recent trip to the middle east, Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) President and CEO Stephen Yurek signed cooperative agreements with the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Association (SASO) and the UAE's Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority, ESMA, aimed at further harmonizing HVACR and water heating testing and rating standards globally. The agreement calls for SASO and ESMA to adopt AHRI's standards as Saudi, and UAE national standards, respectively, in some cases with regional adaptations.
In recent months, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have begun to place a new emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental protection. With personal visits in November 2009 and February 2010, AHRI has signaled in a very serious way its intent to work closely with the governments of those nations to use AHRI standards and performance certification programs to help them meet with efficiency and environmental goals and to further global harmonization of standards and certification programs.
"This agreement is an important first step in what we hope and expect will be on ongoing, very productive relationship," Yurek said. Our active involvement in this region not only helps us expand our global reach, but also helps our member companies that do business in the region compete on a level playing field with other manufacturers," he said.
Discussions are underway between AHRI, SASO and ESMA about holding a series of workshops is that could lead to an agreement on adoption of certification in the near future. The Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority (ESMA) has invited AHRI and other private parties, including AHRI member companies to apply to participate in ESMA standards development and conformity assessment committees that ultimately will develop Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for the UAE.
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is the trade association representing manufacturers of air conditioning, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment. An internationally recognized advocate for the industry, AHRI develops standards for and certifies the performance of many of these products. AHRI's 300 member companies account for more than 90 percent of the residential and commercial air conditioning, space heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment manufactured and sold in North America.

New Energy Management Starter (EMSTM) features BACnet and power metering for building automation systems.
Today Cerus Industrial announced the release of the new EMSTM Smart Starter which is designed to work with HVAC fans, pumps and air handlers. The EMS starter features a Hand-Off-Auto keypad with LCD display for simple set up and operation. More importantly, it easily integrates with control systems by incorporating BACnet communications and providing 0.5% accuracy, utility grade metering for energy management.
The starter reduces installation time and increases reliability by incorporating common control requirements without additional external components. For example, it accepts dry or voltage inputs for activation by control systems without relays in boxes (no interposing relays required). Current sensors commonly used by building control contractors to detect loss of load, commonly referred to as proof of flow or status, are rendered obsolete by on-board true power load monitoring. Using power monitoring rather than current monitoring, the EMS is capable of detecting belt loss or coupling sheer accurately without difficult adjustments. Damper control and fireman?s override (smoke purge) are also standard.
A wide range, class 5-30 electronic overload and wide range voltage operation (120 to 480) VAC prevents installation call-backs due to mis-sized thermal overloads and nuisance trips.
The Starter of Choice for Green Buildings
The earth-friendly Energy Management Starter (EMS) is the ideal energy saver with streamlined automation integrating the use of BACnet communication. ?This innovative starter fills the market demand for better control and increased energy savings on small motors used within building control systems,? says Andre Perra [President of Cerus Industrial]. ?The installation is more efficient and the control is better than traditional starters that are haphazardly interfaced by third parties. Better control, easier sizing and direct communication create characteristics of quality and peace of mind for the installer, end user, and building owner.?
Utility Grade Power Monitoring for LEED Certification
Utility grade metering helps to control energy consumption within buildings. The EMS delivers valuable point of use energy consumption data via BACnet communication, pulse or analog output signals. Accurate to .5% on energy metering, the EMS is an important part of a Measurement and Verification plan required to obtain LEED building certification. Kilowatt Hour information and instantaneous kilowatt metering are available through RS485 with popular communication protocols such as BACnet or a pulse output for trending and control. Substantial savings can be realized in both installation and systems costs with power monitoring built-in to the EMS. Typical installation and costs per metered point with traditional starters and meters can run 50 to 75% more than that of the EMS.
