Thermostats: Johnson Controls
Johnson Controls released a new series of pneumatic-to-digital thermostats, the WT-4000. The WT-4000 series converts older pneumatic room control systems and enables communication with newer digital building automation systems.
The WT-4000 series provides the benefits of a digital control system, including programmable occupancy scheduling and remote temperature monitoring, which can result in increased energy and operational savings. The new thermostats are long-life battery operated and require no additional wiring, resulting in minimum upfront costs and disruptions to the building’s structure or occupants, according to the company.
The new thermostats are ideal for commercial buildings, schools, and critical environments like hospitals, which cannot afford to disrupt occupants or undergo expensive upgrades, but also want the benefits of digital information and efficiency. The WT-4000 Series thermostats come in eight different configurations and offer either Fahrenheit or Celsius displays.
