I'm an Energy Consultant

Q. I have seen these types of products before…they don’t work! What’s so good about your M2G and M3G technologies?

A.M2G - Historically there have been many “time delay” devices sold in our industry, which simply do not work. The M2G and M3G is not one of these products and should not be confused with a simple “time delay” device. Developed over many years, using best available technology, M2G measures and calculates the delta T and memorised firing pattern over time, related to true boiler load or standing losses and ensures that the plant (boiler) does not waste energy by firing without contributing to the system load.

M3G - The M3G measures the temperature of the cooling air entering the room from the air conditioning systems evaporator and monitors the rate of change. The compressor is interrupted when the air temperature from the unit's evaporator has fallen and plateaus. Once the off coil temperature has risen to 2oC below the room thermostat set, M3G will allow the compressor to restart and the process is repeated.

Q. Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) reduce energy consumption and from what I can gather they do exactly what the M2G does.

A. BEMS, typically will control the building comfort levels of specific heating and cooling zones within the building. This may be based on weather compensation and /or optimisation of stop and starts based on occupancy requirements etc. The BEMS may sequence (start/stop) the boilers based on a cascade control, however, the BEMS does not deal specifically with the boilers inherent temperature hysteresis or load optimisation, unlike the M2G. The M2G adds additonal control and intelligence to the boiler, which cannot be provided by a BEMS.

Q. Do you manage the installation of your technology or will my client need to find a company to undertake the installation work for them?

A. Sabien Technology provides nationwide Project Management and installation. From the point of sale to commissioning of the products. We work closely with the incumbent Facility Management Team. Status reports are provided for all those involved in the project. This process eliminates resource pressures for the client and provides an effective and cost efficient implementation across large building portfolios.
