FlexStat is designed for small building automation, unitary equipment control, or as part of a larger BACnet system. It includes built-in applications, selectable through the interface, for standard HVAC challenges such as control of heat pump units, fan coil units, roof top units, & air handling units. However, its flexible offering of inputs and outputs and its programmability make it suitable for virtually any automation scenario.
Humidity and occupancy sensing options extend the flexibility, and the removable backplate ensures easy wiring for a quick installation.
Leaning on experience and data from various K-12 cities and projects, the author pursues some less conventional design approaches. They may revolve around radiant heating and/or cooling, but depending on school size and other factors, the smart use of heat recovery, DOAS, and improved central plants could also put a project on the HVAC honor roll.
