Johnson Controls introduced its new TEC3000 Series thermostat controllers. The company claims these direct hardware replacements for TEC2000 Series thermostats reduce installation time by loading all configuration files and parameters at once using a USB stick. The thermostats also offer rapid-speed commissioning by using the USB stick to commission multiple TEC3000s of the same model.

The new TEC3000 thermostats support both N2 and BACnet MS/TP protocols. Other features include multiple fan configurations that provide single-, multi-, and variable-speed fan control; onboard occupancy sensor that provides energy savings in high-energy usage commercial buildings; and an integral humidity sensor that monitors space humidity and activates dehumidification control on two-pipe fan coil units with reheat and four-pipe fan coil units with or without reheat.
