Water-cooled, ceiling-mount air conditioner
The CMW30 ceiling-mount, water-cooled air conditioner is designed for applications where an air-cooled unit cannot be used because there is no available space for hot exhaust air. With a cooling capacity of 29,400 Btuh total and 22,000 Btuh sensible, the CMW30 is ideal for server rooms and other applications with dense heat loads. It offers a 17-IEER rating and has built-in flanges and mounting brackets for easy, low-cost installation using standard off-the-shelf hardware. For more information, visit bit.ly/MovinCool_CMW30.

Expanded driver library
Two new drivers for the NiagaraAX platform have been added to Tridium’s library of drivers. The Niagara AX Carrier Equipment Driver provides integration of Carrier HVAC equipment with JACE platforms, including the JACE-NXT, and embedded JACEs, such as JACE-6 and JACE-7 series controllers. It allows for the discovery of CCN controllers and bridge devices mounted on Carrier Equipment. The NiagaraAX Driver for McQuay equipment supports communication with the McQuay Open Protocol Master (OPM), is compatible with NiagaraAX release 3.4 or later, communicates via RS-232 to one OPM, and works like other Niagara drivers with remote data represented as proxy points in the JACE station.

Makeup-air dehumidification system
The DRY-O-TRON DK/RK Series makeup-air dehumidifier system for commercial, institutional, and industrial applications features gas-phase air purification, electronically commutated (EC) motors, several energy-recovery-method options, digital-scroll-compressor technology, and more. The DK/RK Series offers a complete selection of energy-recovery methodologies to ensure both relative-humidity and temperature-set-point precision. Other features include a choice of three environmentally friendly refrigerants: R-134a, R-407C, or R-410A. For more information, visit www.dectron.com.
Water-to-water geothermal heat pumps
The TMW 360-600 series high-efficiency water-to-water geothermal heat pumps are available in sizes from 30 to 50 tons. This series uses HFC-410A refrigerant and is applicable for radiant floor heating, snow/ice melt, chilled water for fan coils, hot/chilled water for makeup air, and other HVAC applications. It uses advanced digital controls for building-automation-system interface, four LEDs for unit status, and compressor isolation switches. Other features include, front and back service-access panels, which allow side-by-side installation; staggered top water connections for ease of manifolding multiple units; and direct digital controls.

The Altivar 212 variable-speed drive and S-Flex enclosed version are designed to provide OEMs and control-panel builders with energy-efficient and economical solutions for pump and fan applications. The AC drives adjust motor speed to the required flow of air or fluids, reducing energy costs by 50 percent. Both the Altivar 212 and S-Flex feature electronic motor controls that reduce the mechanical stress on belts, piping, and ductwork and eliminate valve or inlet-guide-vane maintenance. The Altivar 212 is small and, therefore, saves panel space. It includes a full complement of integrated building-automation networking, while its reduced harmonic technology lowers component costs.

Vane anemometer pens
These pens are available in three models that measure: airflow/temperature, airflow/temperature/humidity/dew point, and airflow/temperature/humidity/dew point/barometric pressure. They are designed for intuitive, easy operation, and have a tough ABS plastic housing with O-ring seal. A membrane keypad keeps out dust and dirt. A "Hold" button freezes the reading on the display. The pens have high-contrast LCD digits for easy reading. At the press of a button, the pens recall minimum/maximum readings. They can be used in laboratories, industrial plants, government buildings, medical facilities, and much more. For more information, go to www.control3.com.

VFD inline pumps
The 1900 variable-frequency-drive (VFD), close-coupled, inline pump is designed to enhance pump and building efficiency. The single- or three-phase 1900 VFD line greatly increases energy efficiency and building comfort.The pumps are available in five basic models ranging in size from 11/2 by 11/2 in. to 2 by 2 in., with a flow range of 10 to 250 gpm, and head capability to 160 ft. These VFDs can be installed anywhere in the piping layout, are self-supported by system piping, and can be mounted horizontally or vertically. The motor's permanently sealed, grease-lubricated ball bearings make the 1900 Series pump virtually maintenance-free.
