Carrier has introduced its new ComfortVu BACnet thermostats. These thermostats offer control of a building's heating and cooling equipment from inside a facility or from any BACnet-based BMS, including Carrier’s i-Vu® building automation system.
The Rittal Blue e+ cooling units are now available in a roof-mounted version. The units, suitable for enclosures from a size of 800 mm by 600 mm (W x D) upwards, have a cooling output of 1.3 kW. The company says this means that cold air can also flow from above around the devices installed inside the enclosure, such as frequency converters. Alternatively, cooling can also be provided in combination with the new VX25 large enclosure system as a complete integration solution.

On Demand Using PEX in hydronic heating and cooling applications is a growing trend in the commercial building industry due to the product’s durability and ease of use. This webinar will focus on the benefits of PEX in hydronic applications, including fan-coil units, VAVs, AHUs, unit heaters, radiant manifolds, and more and explore the differences and similarities of using PEX compared to other piping materials.
On Demand It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! At Pfizer Pharmaceutical, this isn’t simply a notion of comfort, it’s a battle cry for engineers responsible for controlling the indoor environment at the company’s pill-manufacturing facility in Puerto Rico. So, when Pfizer began a large HVAC renovation, the company knew tight ductwork was essential. After several failed attempts at traditional manual sealing, contractors recommended a new internal approach to duct sealing. To prove success, painstaking measurements were taken before and after the work was done.
Engineered Systems magazine’s May 2019 issue examines the role of HVAC systems and power in critical facilities via the University of Utah’s new, LEED Gold-certified Downtown Data Center; the role of codes and standards in mission critical facilities; why an engineer should consider a product’s functional requirements during the specification process; and much more.
