Navien has introduced the new Ready-Link® Manifold System for NPE Tankless Water Heaters. The company says the accessory makes manifold mounting, onto the Ready-Link® Rack or directly to a wall, simple for new multi-unit installations or emergency same day replacements.
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.
A new line of dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) from the YORK® brand of Johnson Controls includes a range of 100% outside air units and mixed air units. With heat pump operation and water source operation, as well as a hot water heat option, the new line of air systems delivers more combinations of heating and cooling. The systems also feature an internal energy recovery wheel that pre-conditions outside air and reduces heating and cooling loads by transferring energy between the exhaust airstreams.
Extech Instruments introduced the Extech MN62-K, a kit that includes Extech’s MA62 True RMS digital multimeter and the DV23 AC voltage detector. The company says the kit is optimized for electrical installations and repairs in residential or commercial wiring, HVACR work, and plant maintenance.
Power management company Eaton announced the launch of its heavy duty safety switches with surge protection, the latest in its portfolio of switching devices. Combining Eaton’s safety switches with integrated surge protective devices (SPD) courtesy of the Eaton SP1 and CVX series, the company said this packaged solution provides endusers with better performance than externally mounted devices, resulting in a completely wired, UL®-listed solution and better protection for connected equipment.
Quantech™ has added QCC2 and QCC3 air-cooled, scroll-compressor condensing units for applications ranging from 15 to 160 tons to its portfolio of ready-to-ship products. The condensing units are designed for pairing with indoor air handlers using direct expansion (DX) evaporator coils. Quantech QDC condensers and QDCF fluid coolers are also available for air conditioning and refrigeration applications as high as 2,890 MBH.
Haier Ductless is launching a new ductless series designed for light commercial installation as well as large residential applications. The FlexFit Pro series is available from 24,000 Btu to 48,000 Btu.
SPX Cooling Technologies has launched its new Recold® LC Evaporative Condenser. The condenser design reduces refrigerant charge by up to 40% and lowers fan energy consumption by up to 50% compared to conventional evaporative condensers, according to company officials.
Trane announced the availability of its XR16 low profile side discharge air conditioning unit for split ducted systems. This high-performance, low-profile unit features a side discharge, making it ideal for difficult-to-install applications or in tight space requirements where vertical discharge units prove less than optimal.
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.
