Active environmental protection The Ospa Energy Concept
The heart of the treatment system is Ospa BlueControl®, the intelligent control system that precisely controls and monitors all functions of the swimming pool, thereby also providing for energy efficient operation. This innovative technology ensures that all water parameters are in the green, energy is saved and CO2 emissions are prevented, while conserving our resources and environment.
Thanks to modern Ospa swimming pool technology, all energy consumers of the swimming pool are designed for energy-saving operation. That starts with production of the disinfectant, which is produced on site from regenerating salt with our chlorozone process, and continues with the pumps. An important component of Ospa's high-tech swimming pool technology are frequency-controlled pumps, whose power consumption is regulated according to the required capacity, so that energy efficient operation and optimal circulation volume flow is always guaranteed. The motors that are used conform to the latest EU standard for electric motors, which requires them to have greater energy efficiency.
The energy saving functions of Ospa's swimming pool technology also include an energy saving mode at idle. That means: in idle phases, when the roll-top cover is closed, the room temperature is lowered. Because Ospa BlueControl® also communicates with the climate control technology and is controlled via the touch screen of Ospa BlueControl®, this is possible with no trouble at all. The room temperature lowering saves energy, reducing operating costs.
Another measure for energy efficient operation of the swimming pool is the lowering of the water level. This measure dries the overflow channel and circulation only occurs through pool suction. This energy saving mode is pre-programmed into Ospa BlueControl®. The intelligent control monitors all processes. The energy-saving effect: no more water can evaporate via the overflow channel, so the air conditioning has to dehumidify less and accordingly consumes less power. The water is circulated only in the so-called small circuit, and not through the surge water tank, further minimizing energy consumption.
Of course, Ospa BlueControl® also makes sure that energy is not unnecessarily consumed during operation of the water features. A feature sequence control can be programmed, for example, which is particularly of interest for hotel and municipal pools: individual features are locked out from each other so that they cannot run simultaneously, preventing expensive power peaks.
An important component of modern swimming pool technology is the use of LED spotlights, which, with Ospa, can naturally also be controlled by Ospa BlueControl®. LEDs, and particularly colored RGB spotlights, not only look nice, but last significantly longer than conventional halogen spotlights. That means: fewer lamp replacements and significantly lower maintenance costs as a result. And most importantly: LEDs consume only a fraction of the energy consumed by conventional halogen spotlights.
Last but not least: Ospa BlueControl®, and consequently the entire Ospa swimming pool technology, can be connected to common bus systems in residential buildings. That gives builders optimal networking of all power consumers in their residential buildings, with full use of all facilities, including the swimming pool and wellness facilities, without loss of convenience and with low power consumption. Optimized control technology, in which the Ospa swimming pool technology is integrated into the overall system, always provides for energy efficient operation of the system. The entire system of energy efficiency only works, however, if all components come from one source and are coordinated with each other – by your system supplier. Ospa provides you with modern swimming pool technology and the know-how of more than 80 years of research and development.Show less
