Synergy - Integrated Boiler Control
When describing Cochran Synergy as ‘fully integrated’ that’s exactly what we mean!...
Connectivity doesn’t simply stop at the boiler panel; the core system has been developed to enable multiple boilers and external equipment to be networked into a single highly effective system using industry standard protocols.
Cochran Synergy’s strikingly simple operation is fully supported by clear, logical on-screen help and guidance, and is backed-up by a generic Operators’ Manual that provides a comprehensive guide to operation and all the functions and buttons.
Optimised Schedule Control
Reduce energy consumption and boiler house manning by utilising the flexible setpoint control feature. Cochran Synergy allows the user to define setpoint profiles for a full day. Up to four different setpoints per day can then be allocated to the days of the week.
Optimised Plant Loading
Sequencing and integration of all the boilers and ancillary equipment is possible using the Cochran Synergy. Using the options offered it is possible to monitor and control all aspects of the boiler house plant room and optimise their operation, thus ensuring running costs are minimised and plant life is maximised.
Cochran Synergy allows local and remote real time access which provides on-site operators and remote managers the opportunity to monitor and optimise plant settings, as well as instant access of current reports and trends.
Boiler House and Process Improvements
By utilising the Cochran Synergy report and trending functions managers can analyse the operation of their boiler house, as well as how it responds to events and changes in their operational processes. Costs and efficiency can be reliably evaluated and managed using process and operational data collated using the Synergy system.
Through the Cochran Synergy fault logging system it is possible to quickly identify the causes of any problem and therefore repair and get back online.
The Synergy interface allows remote diagnostics from off-site, including from Cochran engineering staff (with the appropriate service package) which allows quicker identification and repair of problems. It is also possible for Cochran engineers to review the data and trends of equipment in the boiler house and to provide a report on suggested improvements to optimise performance; saving money on energy costs and lengthening plant life.
Through it’s monitoring functions Cochran Synergy allows you to set pre-emptive alarms so that minor issues are addressed before they become serious problems.
