Turntide Technology

Optimal Efficient Equipment for Buildings

Turntide Smart Motor System™

The Turntide Smart Motor System is a full technology stack composed of integrated hardware and software that help you drive down energy use. Turntide’s Optimal Efficiency Motor™ is designed with optimal device physics, running on patented motor control algorithms to significantly reduce utility bills, while enabling intelligent control systems.

 

Turntide Smart Motor

Turntide’s Optimal Efficiency Motors are based on a high rotor pole switched reluctance architecture developed over 18 years of intensive research. We’ve engineered these motors to deliver torque and reliability. Our motors support 3 hp to 15 hp configurations.

Data sheets for IEC and Canada are also available.

Turntide Motor Controller

The Motor Controller delivers the intelligence to the Smart Motor System. Patented control algorithms monitor motor feedback to optimize for efficiency at any speed, and the Motor Controller also connects to sensors in the managed space to enable intelligent remote monitoring and control of the operating environment.

Each Turntide motor controller pairs with a corresponding Turntide motor based on its operating conditions. Refer to motor data sheets for motor controller technical specs.

Turntide Supervisor

The Turntide Supervisor is used to connect multiple motors on a site and provide connectivity to Turntide’s cloud application or your BMS system. With the ability to manage up to 10 motors, it also provides continuous real-time data and enables direct control and monitoring via BACnet to Building Management System (BMS).

The Supervisor communicates with Smart Motors via a twisted pair network or 802.11 Wifi. The Turntide Supervisor provides connections for a multitude of physical I/O, and it is configurable with Turntide Cascade™ configuration software, completing a very flexible gateway product.

Remote Monitoring Kit

Edge automation kit for motor

The Turntide Remote Monitoring Kit connects your Smart Motor System to the internet, and also connects with industry-standard communications protocols such as BACnet/IP. The included Turntide Supervisor connects up to 10 motors, and includes a full suite of control and monitoring I/O.

Energy Monitoring Kit

The Turntide Energy Monitoring Kit works with the Remote Monitoring Kit to perform measurement and verification (M&V) of the energy savings benefits of the Smart Motor System.

Optimal Efficiency Equipment for Intelligent Barns

Ventilation

Healthy cows need fresh, cool air. VES-Artex designs animal-centered environments around the needs of the cows, not the building. Our direct drive fans pull fresh air into the structure, direct the air in waves to cow level, and then remove the dirty, heated air.

  • ECVAir™ Technology
  • AFR Direct Drive Fans
  • Circulating Fans

Lighting

VES Long Day Lighting system maintains summer light all year long, so your cows don’t suffer the seasonal blues. By strategically placing the lamps with light sensors, they can automatically adjust based on the natural light.

High-pressure fogging

A high-pressure fogging system can be a critical component of a complete system or a stand-alone product to control temperature. Reducing heat stress can improve milk production, animal health, and fertility.
