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.
Users commission, configure, and access the SMART Equipment Controller through the Johnson Controls Mobile Access Portal (MAP) Gateway. This optional, pocket-sized portable web server and Wi-Fi hot spot automatically discovers all connected devices in a system and allows for faster equipment set-up and commissioning, said company officials.
The SEC features patented proportional adaptive control (P-Adaptive) and pattern recognition adaptive control (PRAC) technologies that provide continuous loop tuning. The controller is ideal for new construction applications, including K-12 education buildings, office/business spaces, and hotels.
