Play is a colorful radiator designed for use in schools, nurseries, classrooms, or children’s bedrooms. It features soft, rounded corners and a surface that remains cool to the touch. The unit combines five polyurethane-painted medium-density-fiber (MDF) boards in a simple and easy-to-detach design. Its thermostat control is locked into the design, preventing undesired temperature changes. It can be used in conjunction with heat pumps, geothermal systems, solar energy systems, and condensing boilers.

Industrial wireless sensors
Sentry I is a line of industrial wireless sensors that are enclosed in a weatherproof NEMA- (Type 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, and 13) rated housing and listed to UL508-4x specifications. They are designed to efficiently and effectively monitor and capture real-time energy and asset data at facilities where weather or harsh conditions prevent regular sensor use. The data captured is seamlessly integrated into the Sentry Online Dashboard, providing a complete picture of the customer’s property. The sensors are powered by a replaceable AA battery; some also offer a solar-powered option.

Water-source heat pump
The Tranquility Compact (TC) belt-drive water-source heat pump is now available in four sizes: 13.3 tons, 16 tons, 20 tons, and 25 tons. These sizes are only available in a vertical cabinet. The TC series has an extended-range refrigerant circuit capable of ground-loop, ground-water, and water-loop (boiler-tower) applications. Vertical unit configurations can be ordered with front or back return air and top, front, or back supply-air discharge. The units’ small footprint allows them to be installed in tight spaces. Available options include a coated air coil, DDC controls, dual-point power, a cupronickel water coil, and a sound-absorbing UltraQuiet package.
The Draft Simulator is a hand-held, battery-operated instrument that can calibrate and test adjustable and factory-set pressure switches. The instrument produces a sustainable vacuum pressure, allowing the user to simulate the pressures produced by draft inducers. It can be used in any commercial or industrial application on any piece of equipment equipped with a pressure switch.
