New Bert® Inline Series moves beyond basic plug load management to measure and control loads ranging from a 120V outlet to a 250V circuit.

Plug Load Management for Circuits and Receptacels

Bert Plug Load Products

Circuit level power management was the next logical step for our plug load system.

Best Energy Reduction Technologies, LLC, the leading supplier of Wi-Fi based plug load management systems, announces UL Certification and immediate availability of the new Bert® Inline Series. The Bert® Inline Series is the first Wi-Fi product that enables commercial buildings to measure, analyze and control anything from a group of receptacles to an entire circuit. The Bert® Inline series joins the existing Bert® Smart Plugs (110, 110M and 110 Vend) thus allowing the Bert® Plug Load Management System to measure and control anything from an individual plug load to an entire circuit.

About The Bert® Inline Series

The new Bert® Inline Series includes 3 models: 1) The Bert® 220 I for circuits up to 250V and 20A 2) The Bert® 110 I for circuits up 120V and 20A and 3) The Bert® 110 IR with a built in duplex receptacle for circuits up to 120V and 20A. All three models are UL Certified. “Circuit level power management was the next logical step for our plug load system. Our customers are especially eager to control larger loads such as water heaters and large room air conditioners to both reduce power and meet load shedding demands,” says Scott J. Yetter, CEO of Best Energy Reduction Technologies LLC, developers of the Bert® Plug Load Management System. “Our newly expanded product line will enable commercial buildings to comply with newer energy code requirements such as ASHRAE 90.1 and California Title 24,” adds Yetter. Plug load requirements have been added to ASHRAE 90.1 2010 in Automatic Receptacle Control, ASHRAE 90.1 2013 in Electrical Energy Monitoring and CA Title 24 in Electrical Power Distribution Systems.

About The Bert® Plug Load Management System

The Bert® Plug Load Management System consists of the Bertbrain® 1000 software application, your Wi-Fi network, and a virtually unlimited number of Berts. By simply plugging water coolers, coffee machines, printers, copiers, etc. into the Bert® Smart Plug series or wiring circuits with the Inline Series, commercial buildings can remotely measure, analyze and control plug loads at both the receptacle and circuit level. Bert® provides mass remote control so each building and/or device can have a unique schedule, thus turning equipment off during nights, weekends and holidays when buildings are unoccupied. Bert® installs quickly so energy savings are immediate and payback is typically 1 to 3 years. Since Bert® provides both measurement and control of plug load, the system is often included in performance contracts from Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Siemens and Schneider Electric.
