January 2, 2013 - Cerus Industrial has added an Energy Management Bypass option (EMB) to its P-Series line of variable frequency drives (VFDs). According to Cerus, the new option assures uninterruptible operation of customers’ HVAC systems, even if the drive is taken out of the loop for some reason, including reprogramming or maintenance operations. With integrated real-time ANSI grade power metering and BACnet communications, the EMB measures consumption in both VFD and Bypass mode to +/- 1%. Cerus P-Series VFDs are available in a range of packages from 1HP to 400HP.CERUS INDUSTRIAL
December 6, 2012 - The Energy Star Broan LP80 and NuTone LPN80 ventilation fans are designed for installations where conventional ventilation won’t fit, says the company. The LoProfile fans, providing 80 CFM of ventilation, can be installed in a wall between 2-in. x 4-in. studs. According to Broan-NuTone, the LoProfile fans can still fit without having to move anything. BROAN-NUTONE
December 6, 2012 - Jaga Climate Systems has unveiled the Vertiga heating and cooling system, which is made entirely from renewable components, including its exterior sheath made from soybean stalks.
