Daikin Applied’s Intelligent Equipment® is now available as a factory-installed option on Trailblazer® chillers. The company says the equipment helps building owners and facility managers transform how they manage HVAC equipment. Officials also said the Intelligent Equipment transfers and applies data from the unit through the cloud to drive value, helping building operators monitor energy consumption at the equipment level. For unit level performance measurement, data from the cloud is converted to actionable results. With the addition of Intelligent Equipment, facility managers and owners can monitor the operability and efficiency of Trailblazer, manage expenses, and reduce energy costs.

Daikin said its Trailblazer air-cooled scroll chillers are designed to deliver low installed costs and long-life performance in demanding environments while meeting expectations for high operating efficiency. They are ideal for data centers, hospitals, and schools.

Intelligent Equipment can be designed directly into a new factory-built Trailblazer chiller or as a retrofit kit.
