To help building operators better manage their HVAC equipment, Carrier has introduced the next generation of touchscreen displays for the i-Vu® building automation system. The company says the new TruVu™ Equipment Touch (ET) displays provide facility managers and technicians with an intuitive user interface for managing HVAC equipment in buildings.

The larger, higher-resolution TruVu ET displays are designed for indoor equipment and panel mounting applications. The display enclosures are IP65 rated, making them dust, water, and vibration resistant. They connect to a single i-Vu controller and are available in three sizes.

Once connected, the TruVu ET displays will automatically show an i-Vu graphic of the equipment, providing operators with real-time visibility and control of the connected equipment. Operating parameters, trend graphs, schedules, and alarms can be viewed and configured. A pinch-to-zoom feature increases operator visibility of details on the equipment graphic and trend graphs. It also allows equipment graphics to be customized using the ViewBuilder graphics tool. The TruVu ET displays support multiple languages and include multi-level password protection for security.

            The TruVu ET displays are compatible with existing i-Vu controllers and Carrier’s soon-to-be released TruVu product line. The Carrier® TruVu product line is the next generation of Carrier controllers, which are slated to begin rolling out beginning later this year.
