GxTracker™


GxTracker Monitoring Systems provide geothermal professionals and homeowners with real-time information about the performance of their geothermal heating and cooling system.

HARDWARE

Three Power Monitoring Options

In order of increasing accuracy of electricity usage measurements, GES offers three GxTracker packages:

Core Components

All three packages come with:

  • GxTracker Ethernet Gateway and AC power adapter cable
  • 7-ft ethernet cable
  • Two (2) on-pipe temperature sensors
  • RJ-11 cables and connectors

System Requirements:

  • At least 3/4-inch exposed metal on ground loop waterlines
  • An always-on internet connection

Hardwire Accessories and Upgrades:

  • Kits available for monitoring up to 2 additional heat pumps
  • Flow sensors available for monitoring flow
  • Kits available for monitoring hot water desuperheaters
  • Upgrade to WiFi Gateway when hardwire ethernet connection is not readily available

SOFTWARE

GES software gives users a look at the current and past performance of their geothermal heating/cooling system. Monitor
  • Geoexchange: A summary of energy extracted from (heating) or rejected to (cooling) the ground.

  • Data Graphs: Fluid temperatures, flow rates, BTUs produced and electricity usage.

  • Savings: Cost and carbon savings relative to heating and cooling with other fuels such as electric resistance, fuel oil, natural gas and propane.

  • Performance: Current operating conditions and summary performance metrics.
