POUNCE Solutions: Architects and Engineers


“My clients want to manage energy without the expense and complexity of the traditional behemoth systems.”


The pressure at the sensor in the duct work indicates changes to the motor speed controller. The variable speed motor the controller increases and decreases its speed to maintain a constant pressure as the VAV boxes open and close to satisfy the temperature in each room.

Operation:
The POUNCE® Dashboard is configured for Comfort/Efficiency mode, allowing the user to input 2 temperature settings and choose heating or cooling season.

When occupancy is detected by any POUNCE® device in the room, the POUNCE® device opens and closes its internal relay to achieve the comfort temperature setting.

If the damper is required to be open to call for more air, the POUNCE® device will supply power to the 0-10V Converter.

When powered, the 0-10V Converter outputs the 0-10V to open the louver to the opening that the slider is set to.

When the 0-10V Converter is un-powered, it is assumed that the louver will close. Should the room become unoccupied, the temperature will be allowed to reduce (for heating season) to the efficiency level.

The POUNCE® device will open and close the relay to achieve that.


ASHREA 90.1 and California Energy Code (CEC) Title 24 require controlled outlets.


POUNCE® switches can perform multiple functions, such as acting as the thermostat sensor that commands a separate POUNCE® device to control HVAC loads while turning the lights on and off.

Tired of waving your hands to get the lights to come back on? POUNCE Systems uses a network of sensors and offers patent pending options for hybrid Motion/ Time-of-Day settings to improve your experience.


LEED v4 performance standards emphasize continuous monitoring. POUNCE Systems seamlessly provides continuous monitoring that is locally and remotely accessible.

Actual Temperature Data

One of the POUNCE® Systems installations includes devices in a room with exterior walls. Device 008F is located on the exterior wall and device 0044 is on an inside wall about 10 feet away.

As you can see from the POUNCE® Dashboard graph, the maximum recorded temperature for device 0044 is 44°F and the minimum temp is 17°F. The other device showed an average temperature of 72°. This is a pretty good indication that the exterior wall is lacking insulation.

It’s almost uncanny to track the red temperature line in the bottom plot vs. the CEWD temperature in the top plot.
