BTU lowers operating costs with ENERGY PILOT

Mar 18, 2014

BTU International, Inc., a supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, announced the new ENERGY PILOT software feature designed to reduce the consumption of electrical power and process gas for manufacturers that may have interruptions in production.

ENERGY PILOT is a feature in the latest release of BTU’s windows-based WINCON™ operating system.  The ENERGY PILOT saves manufacturers money whenever the oven is idle.  Standby mode can save more than 25%. Sleep mode can be used for longer interruptions saving over 40%.   Long idle periods fully shut down the oven using hibernate mode.  Recovery times are minimized using remote product sensors and SMEMA.  Operation is fully automatic and results in an overall reduction in electrical, air and nitrogen consumption.  The feature is easily upgradeable on older BTU reflow ovens. 

The INTELLIMAX furnace controller and WINCON operating system have been powering BTU ovens and furnaces for the past decade.  Together they provide precise control, powerful analytical tools, and intuitive interface, all designed for the harshest industrial environments. The latest INTELLIMAX2 and WINCON 6.1  are available for upgrade on most BTU systems in the field.  For more information or an upgrade quote please contact BTU’s parts department at partsales@btu.com.
