Aircuity Platform with BACnet Client Capability
Aircuity adds BACnet Client capability to the Aircuity platform. This critical interoperability feature is designed to give customers a cost-effective way to view a broad picture of their facility’s operation. It integrates additional points available on the network from building systems and present them alongside Aircuity’s data, reducing integration costs and giving clients an easy way to get a holistic view of all key building parameters. BACnet Client is currently available on all new Aircuity projects and can be remotely loaded on customers’ existing systems.
Metasys 10.0 Building Management System
Johnson Controls introduces Metasys 10.0, designed to provide facility personnel with smarter building automation, faster responses to critical alarms and new integrations with fire detection, security and lighting systems — all with visibility from a single common interface. It includes new integrations with C·CURE 9000 Access Control and victor Video Management Systems, and simpler integrations with SIMPLEX Fire Systems and with lighting systems from leading lighting providers. A new Metasys Application Programming Interface enables data to be securely extracted from the System and integrated with Johnson Controls or third-party data visualization tools for robust data analysis and reporting.

FT 6050 Smart Transceiver
Adesto’s FT 6050 Smart Transceiver system-on-chip (SoC) now natively supports LON, LON/IP, BACnet/IP and BACnet MS/TP protocol stacks. Its open systems approach allows BACnet workstations and LON network manager and integrator tools to natively field-configure, provision and monitor controllers as either LON or BACnet devices, or both. This enables a flexible architecture that combines the best of both worlds, all while taking advantage of the fault tolerant and scalable FT media. New enhancements to the include improvements to the memory architecture to allow for larger, higher fidelity applications, enabling creation of extensive systems.

Solo-Control Individual Air Volume Control System
Metropolitan Air Technology offers an affordable solution to the occupant comfort problem that plagues office dwellers and building management companies: the Solo-Control Individual Air Volume Control System. Push button damper adjustment allows room occupants to increase or decrease the flow of conditioned air into their space. The system includes the MAT wall control unit and a patented Electro-Balance radial damper. The units are self-contained and can be installed in minutes with snap-fit connectors. No programming or electrical work is required. Adjustable min and max open damper position settings can be used to address system balancing concerns. It is compatible with all round and rectangular HVAC ducting. Available in two models: battery powered and 24VAC.

Neuron Drop-In Tankless Water Heaters
Intellihot introduces the Neuron Series of commercial tankless water heaters: the iN401 and iN501, providing up 399,999 and 499,999 Btu/hr., respectively. Both models feature direct cellular LTE connectivity for remote monitoring and independently controlled twin engines offering built-in redundancy. Designed for hotels, restaurants and schools, the drop-in-ready tankless units fit existing water and gas connections, eliminating the need to re-pipe and cutting installation time in half. The compact and lightweight units are 8 in. slimmer than a typical tank and fit in the narrowest of spaces, including standard doorways and elevators.
Multi-Refrigerant DSH Scroll Compressors
Danfoss DSH scroll compressors now support R454B and R452B refrigerants. The compressors’ multi-refrigerant compatibility, along with similar drop-in performance versus R410A, is designed to make refrigerant transition as easy as possible for OEMs without the need to make radical system alterations. They include IDV technology to enable higher part-load efficiency. Available in 10 models from 7.5 to 40 TR and a wide range of manifold options. Features operating maps to fit a wide range of applications, both reversible and cooling only, including chillers and rooftop units.
EM54 Environmental HVACR Meter
FLIR introduces the multipurpose EM54 environmental meter for HVACR measurements. Based on hygrometer technology, it identifies deviations from ambient relative humidity levels. It is ideal for inspecting ducting, electrical motors, thermal equipment and other system components in residential, commercial and industrial facilities. Equipped with an external vane anemometer for wide-range, high-resolution air velocity measurements, the unit allows users to check air speed at duct inlets and outlets quickly and precisely. The meter features an intuitive set of function keys, making it easy-to-use, and easy-to-read with a backlit multi-function display, a MIN-MAX-AVG recording function, and a programmable auto power off timer.
Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler
Baltimore Aircoil Co. introduces the Nexus Modular Hybrid Cooler, an intelligent, plug-and-play cooling system. The units are up to 8” shorter in height, have a 40 percent smaller footprint and are 35 percent lighter than traditional fluid coolers. Modules are designed to be moved with a pallet jack and fit in a freight elevator. All fans, pumps, accessories and controls are factory-installed and -wired for true single-point wiring. The patent-pending DiamondClear design uses 60 percent less spray water volume than traditional systems, has turbulent spray water flow and the spray water basin can be inspected while in operation.
