Cypress Envirosystems CEO to Present at Hawa’ii Energy Innovation Symposium

Digital Transformation: Exelon uses non-invasive sensors from Cypress Envirosystems to digitize nuclear plant built in 1975

Last week, Cypress Envirosystems and our customer Exelon (the largest electric utility in the US) attended the 23rd Annual ARC Industry Forum in Orlando.  The event focused on the Digital Transformation of Industry and Cities, and was attended by over 900 industry executives and media.

Bill Ansley, Innovation Leader at Exelon Nuclear, presented a very compelling case study for digitizing existing plants with non-invasive technologies from Cypress Envirosystems. The cost to implement was 90% less than conventional approaches, and it took only one week to install with no operational disruption. The payback period was well under three years.  See Bill's presentation here:

In Chicago, hi-tech solution helps low-tech systems run more efficiently

The problem with the existing pneumatic thermostats in 311 S. Wacker and other buildings like it, is that they rely entirely on mechanical compressed air action to operate, says Harry Sim, CEO of San Jose, California-based Cypress Envirosystems, which provided the new wireless pneumatic thermostats for the building.

A Challenge to the Potential of Industrial IoT

Lack of data visibility in existing plants hinders Industrial IoT deployment...but non-invasive instrumentation upgrade is a key part of the solution.

IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is a hot trend these days – it promises to revolutionize our industrial infrastructure by improving efficiency at existing power plants, refineries, off-shore oil platforms, pharmaceutical plants, hospitals etc. According to McKinsey, IIoT will unlock $6.2 trillion in potential economic impact by 2025. For the electricity sector alone, the World Economic Forum estimates $1.3 trillion of value can be captured with IIoT.

Focus on Wireless Pneumatic Thermostats: Direct Digital Functionality At A Fraction Of The Cost

GSA’s Region 2 manages more than 70 federally-owned facilities, many of which still rely on conventional pneumatic control systems to maintain occupant comfort. The problem is that conventional pneumatic control systems cannot deliver even the most basic cost-saving control strategies, such as turning down the heat at night or when the building is unoccupied.

Arizona Building Built in 1986 Undergoes Retrofit, Saving 160,000 KWH Per Year

A 24-story building built in 1986 recently underwent an energy efficiency retrofit by Cypress Envirosystems, resulting in energy savings of 160,000 KWH per year. The energy savings gained were attributed to implementing a combination of low cost best practices and equipment replacement projects. SMARTPneumatics were used to complete a major VAV retrocommissioning that included repairs to air leaks in the pneumatic system, re-calibration, and actuators for improved air flow correction. Energy use was reduced by 160,000 KWH per year. More >

PSDcast – Improving Building Efficiency with Wireless Pneumatic Thermostats

In this episode of the PSDcast, we’re talking about Wireless Pneumatic Thermostats and legacy cooling systems. Just recently, a 345,000 square-foot property in Phoenix, Arizona won the BOMA Green Building Committee Kilowatt Krackdown award after achieving the highest Energy Star score of 98 in the competition. The building’s owners did so by upgrading their old-style pneumatic thermostats with CypressEnviro Systems’ Wireless Pneumatic Thermostats and with the company’s SMARTPneumatics software. More >

Universal mCloud and Cypress Envirosystems Sign Agreement to Initially Target Large Institutional Buildings in Canada Using AssetCare™ AI&A Cloud Solution

VANCOUVERApril 10, 2018 /CNW/ - Universal mCloud Corp. (TSX-V: MCLD) ("mCloud" or the "Company"), a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence and Analytics (AI&A) and IoT-connected asset care technology, today announced that it has signed a partnership with a Silicon Valley-based Cypress Envirosystems Inc. (Cypress).  Cypress' patented, non-invasive pneumatic-to-digital controller is the only technology available that effectively upgrades legacy non-digital energy control systems without significant disruption. An estimated 70% of North America facilities are still using legacy pneumatic-based control systems, which prevents them from effectively using IoT based smart building solutions.  The mCloud-Cypress combined offering will immediately enable powerful, IoT-cloud based smart-building monitoring solutions for the large legacy market.

North American Clean Energy — 24-Story Phoenix Building Wins BOMA Award for 98 Energy Star Score

The BOMA Green Building Committee Kilowatt Krackdown was recently awarded to 3200 N. Central Avenue – a retrocommissioned, 24 stories, 345,000 SF building in Phoenix AZ built in 1986 – for achieving the highest Energy Star score of 98 in the competition.   .Tim Rose, Executive VP of DPC companies commented on the need for SMARTPneumatics technology. “Prior to the retrocommission, our heating and cooling expenses for the existing building were substantially higher what we felt they should be running for a building of this size and age. That, combined with numerous tenant complaints about cooling issues throughout the year, and the resulting tenant comfort work order requests made it clear to us that we needed to improve the building’s HVAC. We are very pleased with the upgrade and most importantly, our tenants couldn’t be more satisfied. The new controls were solely responsible for reducing the tenant cooling requests from an average 25 – 30 calls per day when we purchased the building to approximately 3 to 5 per week.” More >
