Brossard, QC, November 24, 2015 – Distech Controls, an innovation leader in energy management solutions, today introduced HORYZON, an IP-based, high resolution color LCD touchscreen display. For mechanical rooms to building applications, the HORYZON display is available in three rugged, contemporary models for wall or panel mounting.
This touchscreen display brings IP-connectivity within the building automation sector to the next level, to that of user interfaces. With the increased speed and performance of IP, it empowers users with the ability to view, edit and configure operating parameters of an HVAC system. Color-coded icons allow for an at-a-glance indication of alarms and override conditions.
The HORYZON display’s automatically generated interface means that no additional configuration or development is required. It is preloaded with a visual interface that connects directly to the company’s ECLYPSE™ Connected System Controller, IP and Wi-Fi product series, and EC-NetAX web-based multi-protocol building automation and energy management platform, powered by the NiagaraAX Framework.
“With our commitment to the Internet of Things, Distech Controls was looking to expand IP-based performance even beyond controllers,” said Trevor Palmer, Vice President Products and Marketing, Distech Controls. “Our HORYZON display does just that by providing users with a sleek, flexible product that extends the reach of IP-connectivity into all parts of a system, even user interfaces,” added Palmer.
The HORYZON display will be showcased at the upcoming AHR Expo in Orlando Florida. Distech Controls invites those attending to visit booth #1242, to learn more about all of the company’s latest IP-based innovations, including the full series of ECLYPSE Connected IP and Wi-Fi products, and ENVYSION, web-based graphic design and visualization interface.
