Chiller Control Panels

Chiller Cntrl Panels_350x263.jpgEMCOR Services Shambaugh (ESS) offers state-of-the-art control panels designed specifically to help improve the functionality of your chiller systems. Chillers are among the single largest energy consumers in a building, and our control panels can help significantly improve energy efficiency, while also promoting reliability and minimizing system faults and failures. 

Cutting-edge Controls from Qualified Professionals  

The microprocessor-based touchscreen control panel is designed for existing centrifugal and rotary screw chillers, regardless of brand/manufacturer or size. ESS technicians are uniquely qualified and trained to install these panels, and we can retrofit virtually any make and model of large tonnage centrifugal or screw chiller.

Our innovative control panel retrofit solution comes programmed with all the software needed to operate chillers and also provides performance monitoring, diagnostic and safety warnings, compressor motor soft start, and the ability add variable frequency drives (VFDs). 

Control Panel Benefits: 

  • Cut peak power demand
  • Achieve potential electric utility rebates 
  • Reduce required chiller maintenance
  • Extend useful chiller life 
  • Up to 30-percent reduction in energy use with VFD

Adaptable Technology for Simplified Integration

In addition to sophisticated performance monitoring and evaluation, our control panels also offer a high-level of flexibility, helping you operate your chiller system according to your unique environmental conditions and building needs. They are designed for simplified integration into existing building automation systems and provide all points mapping. 

Further, while these panels are specifically designed for chiller equipment, they can also be used for a wide range of other applications—from self-contained units to refrigeration control and even to small chiller plant control. 

Our controls can be utilized with the following equipment:

  • Chillers 
  • Rooftop units
  • Condensing units
  • Centrifugal equipment 
  • Screw compressors 
  • Open drives 
  • Screws on VFDs
  • Reciprocating compressors
  • Reciprocating on VFDs
