Johnson Controls says its new SMART Equipment Controllers (SEC) use a smart mobile device interface that gives engineers the flexibility to easily access their Johnson Controls water-to-air water source heat pump controls through any Wi-Fi-enabled device and any internet browser. The controllers feature an onboard backlit local display with pushbuttons and BACnet Automatic Discovery support that enables integration into any BACnet BAS.
HEMCO says its new ModuLab can achieve strict environmental control by incorporating HEPA filtration to regulate air quality ranging from Class 1,000 to 100,000. Modulab can be used in conjunction with dust collectors to control room dust levels. Precise temperature control can be maintained with optional modified cooling systems for lower temperature requirements. Humidity can be regulated with desiccant systems available for lower humidity requirements.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned.
Finding the holy grail of centrifugal chiller optimization for all operating conditions is hard, if not impossible. This article will talk about the requirements of most chiller systems and means of control for condenser optimization.
Delta Controls has debuted the eZNTW, an advanced BACnet thermostat that expands the company’s enteliZONE thermostat product line. The company says its eZNTW boasts unique communications capabilities, such as onboard WiFi to make it IoT-ready and enOcean® wireless capabilities for HVAC controls and in-room integration with a variety of peripheral products, such as lighting, blinds, and door contact. The eZNTW also features a wide-range of sensing applications, from basic temperature monitoring to indoor air quality and occupancy sensing.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
