Is a Kentrol Energy Miser affected by power outages?
Some, high dependability Kentrol Energy Miser installations are done such that every component is served by UPS power. Most are not, however. It would be advisable to supply the control computer with UPS power so it can call a person for help (see Alarm section below), but even that isnt necessary. Obviously if there is no UPS power available, or if it becomes exhausted, the system will cease to function. If temperatures are below freezing and there is no standby power source of any sort, the building is in danger of freezing as there is not only no control system functioning, but probably no heat available anyway. When the power returns, however, the Kentrol Energy Miser system can be configured to restart and regain control of its various functions without operator intervention.
