As the "smart" central control device, Energy Kinetics' Digital Energy Manager provides continuous system monitoring and simple diagnostics for a virtually maintenance-free, combined heat and hot water system.
Five, ten and fifteen zone control options allow for multi-zone thermostat settings-resulting in added comfort and overall energy savings for homeowners.
Installation is simple: The factory pre-wired harness and quick reference notes on settings save valuable installation and system set up time. The installer simply brings in power, and connects thermostat and zone valve wires. That's it.
Thermostat LEDs - display areas of the home calling for heat.
Individual Zone LEDs - display areas of the home being heated.
Temperature Indicator LEDs - display boiler return temperature.
Monitor Output Connection - signals lack of fuel or burner operation, inadequate water flow, temperature sensor error and potential freeze conditions. May be connected to home or building security system, signal lights or devices and dial out systems. [ Read More ]
Customized Option Switches - Allow for hot water priority settings, chimneyless operating functions, customized zone energy recovery settings, and more.
Option switches customize the digital energy manager for each home installation. Installers can enable hot water priority, set operating and minimum temperature levels, power vent purge time and individual zone energy recovery control to best suit each home's needs. And all Energy Kinetics' heating systems are fuel neutral, so they operate with natural gas, oil heat, or propane (only a simple burner change is required to change between gas and oil fuels). Accel CS™ can be operated with either natural gas or propane with a simple orifice change.
Compare to Temperature Reset Controls
The Digital Energy Manager is responsive to cold returns from large or small water volume systems, and always maintains safe minimum boiler temperatures. Unlike temperature reset controls, the Digital Energy Manager with Hybrid Energy Recovery® is not dependent upon complicated trail and error adjustments to operate at peak performance. Energy Kinetics' Hybrid Energy Recovery also outperformed temperature reset operation and modulating condensing boiler technology in the Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratories testing.

Digital Energy Manager Diagnostics
We invite you to view our Digital Energy Manager diagnostic tool. This demonstrates how to use the Digital Energy Manager as a very powerful diagnostic tool, and to test all manager functions in less than 2 minutes. It also covers useful information about the indicator lights, thermostat connections, outputs (zone connections), and how the manager cannot cause a burner lockout.

System 2000, 90+ Resolute, and Accel CS use industry standard burners that can be serviced by qualified technicians. Click here to download our special burner diagnostic and troubleshooting guide for System 2000 and 90+ Resolute.
Burner lockouts may also be caused by insufficient draft. Click here to find out how to test and use the puff switch as a diagnostic tool.
The Manager Service Board works with both the Digital Energy Manager, and the Classic Manager. The instructions are printed right on the front of the board.
This ingenious tool allows System 2000 and 90+ Resolute to run in "conventional boiler mode," so the burner, zones, circulator and entire system operate just like a common "maintain temperature" boiler (including lower efficiency operation without Energy Recovery). Troubleshooting is easy for any heating professional with boiler and burner experience, and there's no need to know anything about the Digital Energy Manager control to work on the system.
The service board also allows the boiler to run if the manager is damaged or is not functioning properly. Be assured that the manager is very durable and virtually maintenance free-if you ever suspect there is a problem, heating professionals should review the diagnostic video and contact Energy Kinetics if a problem is identified.
You and your customers can have peace of mind because the Digital Energy Manager comes with a five year part warranty which includes a lifetime protection – no product registration is required!
