Product Summary
The SuperBus 2000 Energy Saver Module (ESM) monitors and
controls temperatures. By overriding an existing HVAC thermostat, the ESM uses low- and high-temperature limits to save on
energy use. With the ESM on, temperature limits determine when
heating or air conditioning units are on. When the ESM is off, the
HVAC thermostat controls heating and air conditioning units.
For example, if the HVAC thermostat is set at 68°F and the ESM
high limit is set to 80°F, the ESM prevents the air conditioner
from turning on until the temperature reaches 80°F. ESM limits
can be set from 40°F to 90°F.
If temperatures drop below a set freeze temperature (default =
42°F), a temperature sensor monitors and reports a freeze alarm
to the panel. If the temperature drops to 45°F (± 6°F), a backup
freeze thermostat provides additional protection by activating the
furnace.
Note:
Depending on the location of the ESM, additional freeze
sensors may be required to provide adequate freeze
protection.
This device is compatible with GE Security Concord™ and
UltraGard™ panels.
SuperBus 2000 vs. SuperBus
SuperBus 2000 panels auto-address module unit numbers. When
the panel is powered, a unique device ID number (preprogrammed at factory) is automatically learned by the panel.
Potential identical unit number conflicts and the need to manually set DIP switches are eliminated.
Older SuperBus panels can communicate with the ESM by
manually setting the module’s DIP switches.

Installation Guidelines
When installing the ESM, consider the following guidelines:
• For Concord and Concord Express (v4) systems, connect up
to 16 bus devices to the panel (alphanumeric touchpad,
HIM, ESM). For UltraGard systems, connect up to eight bus
devices to the panel.
• Assign each bus device a different unit number.
• For Concord systems, use one ESM for each partition; for
UltraGard systems, the panel can accomodate one ESM.
• Maximum current draw for the ESM is 30 mA.
• When using panel power to supply bus or hardwired
devices, do not exceed the panel’s total power output. Refer
to specific panel Installation Instructions for further detail.
• Use four-conductor, 22-gauge or larger diameter stranded
wire to connect the ESM to the panel.
• Use two-conductor, 22-gauge or larger diameter stranded
wire to connect the ESM to the thermostat.
• Install the ESM on an inside wall next to or as close as
possible to the existing thermostat. This helps maintain a
minimal temperature difference between the ESM and the
thermostat.
• When the ESM is turned on, programmable thermostats that
use batteries may lose their programmed settings. Because
the ESM relay can interrupt the thermostat’s main power,
the thermostat may rely on battery power to maintain
programmed settings. As a result, the thermostat’s battery
may need to be replaced more often — depending how often
and how long the ESM is turned on.
• Refer to the specific panel Installation Instructions for wire
length limits.

Setting a Module Unit Number
Concord (v2.0-later), Concord 4, and Concord Express
(v4) Panels
For Concord (v2.0-later), Concord 4, and Concord Express (v4)
panels, unit numbers are automatically learned by the panel after
the system receives power. If using one module per partition, the
panel automatically assigns each module a partition number.
Concord (v1.0–1.6) and UltraGard Panels
A module can be set to any unit number (0-15) with the module’s
DIP switches. If no other bus modules are installed in a system,
the default setting (0) can be used.
If using one module per partition, the lower unit number is
assigned to Partition 1; the higher unit number is assigned to
Partition 2.
Note:
Because unit numbers for Concord RF receivers are factory
set to 15, do not use this unit number setting.
Setting DIP Switches
On the module, locate the DIP switches (see Figure 1). Next, set
the desired unit number from 0 to 15 (see Figure 6) before
turning the power on.
Note:
Note:
Verify all wiring at the panel and module is correct.
Connect the panel’s backup battery and plug in the AC
power transformer.
3. Verify that the ESM LED flashes.
• If desired, enter panel program mode and verify that unit
numbers exist and that the module is in the correct partition
(see panel Installation Instructions for more information).

To ensure consistency between an ESM and home
thermostat, the ESM must be installed and powered for a
minimum of 15 minutes. For best results, wait one hour to
adjust the ESM’s room temperature setting.
Troubleshooting
If your module does not function properly, refer to Table 3 for a
list of troubleshooting solutions.
