Distech Controls adds EC-Smart-Air to Allure series
By Renée Francoeur
Designed for projects that require “precise” environmental sensing, the EC-Smart-Air is a three-in-one sensor, combining temperature, humidity and CO2. By combining these sensing capabilities, building owners are able to achieve optimized energy savings, with the CO2 sensor further reducing operating costs by implementing demand-controlled ventilation, reducing building over-ventilation, and avoiding conditioning outdoor air unnecessarily, Distech claims.
EC-Smart-Air is compatible with ECL series Lonworks Controllers, ECB series BACnet Controllers and Eclypse series BACnet/IP and Wi-Fi Controllers. Housed in a “discrete” enclosure, the EC-Smart-Air is ideal for applications requiring no occupant-driven overrides such as hospitals, retail spaces, data centres and storage spaces.
Allure EC-Smart-Air communicating sensors can also be daisy-chained to one controller for increased range.
