Reliable Controls has released the MACH-Pro1 and MACH-Pro2, fully programmable, BACnet® building controllers (B-BC). The MACH-Pro1 is designed for mid-sized rooftop equipment or small mechanical room applications, while the MACH-Pro2 provides expanded capabilities ideally suited to large, MS/TP rooftop equipment and mid-sized mechanical room applications.
If you are one of the fortunate ones to have had the opportunity to work in the building industry throughout your career, you probably don’t think you can or will leave a legacy for others to benefit from being in this business.
The federal push toward break-even building energy is real, and the clock is ticking. The public sector will be flocking toward forward-thinking designs (and designers) like never before — prepare to rule more of the roost, or lay an egg.
In pharma warehousing, two degrees can be the difference between life and death. Tailor the HVAC to the specifics of the space with the help of CFD, and pave the way to a smooth “last mile” to the user in this critical distribution chain.
These days, designs are favoring higher total system capacities, larger generators at higher output voltages integrated into “campus-type” power distribution systems, and security. Review design approaches, lessons learned, and relevant codes.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop. Learn more about Grounded In Reality in the December issue. Other topics in the December issue include health care HVAC, Boilders, check out the Back2Basics, and more.
