Best Energy Reduction Technologies (BERT), LLC, the leading supplier of Wi Fi based plug load management systems, announces UL Certification and immediate availability of the new Bert® 277I. The 277I is the newest Bert® Inline product that enables commercial buildings to measure, analyze and control loads from an individual device to an entire circuit at up to 277V and 20 A. The new 277I joins the existing Inline products (220I, 1110IR, 110I) and the existing Bert Smart Plugs (110, 110M and 110 Vend) thus allowing the Bert Plug Load Management System to measure and control lights, circuits and outlets with one system.

About The Bert® Inline Series

The new Bert® 277I moves the Bert Inline Series into even higher loads such as indoor or exterior lighting, PTAC units, water heaters, kitchen hoods etc. “BERT provides a single platform to manage both larger loads at the circuit level and plug load at the outlet level” says Scott Yetter, CEO of Best Energy Reduction Technologies LLC, developers of the Bert® Plug Load Management System. “Commercial buildings now have a cost effective and efficient way to measure and control electrical usage throughout the entire facility.”

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 lighting and 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 loads 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.
