New IRC solution to receive honourable mention in Building Automation category
Distech Controls has announced that it will receive an honourable mention at the AHR Expo 2014, held from January 21 to 23, at the Javits Convention Center, New York City. Selected by a panel of judges made up of ASHRAE members, Distech Controls’ Programmable VAV Controllers with the Integrated Room Control (IRC) Solution has been recognised in the Building Automation category, the announcement added.
Giving details about the IRC Solution, Distech Controls claimed that it was an end-to-end modular offering for the control of HVAC room terminal equipment, lighting, and shades and simplified design, installation and integration of multi-application systems, and designed to deliver optimal energy savings, at the lowest total install cost, with occupancy-based control strategies, daylight harvesting based on light level sensing and natural light optimisation. The energy savings are such that a study by the Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Germany demonstrated energy savings in excess of 30% on HVAC and up to 60% on lighting with control products like the IRC Solution, the company revealed. The recently introduced innovation will be showcased at the 2014 AHR Expo, it informed.
“Distech Controls is honoured to be recognised by the AHR Expo Innovation Awards in the Building Automation category,” said Etienne Veilleux, President and CEO of Distech Controls. “The Integrated Room Control Solution is a true representation of our dedication to achieving energy efficiency through innovation.”
