Montreal, Canada, January 11, 2013 – Distech Controls, a global innovation leader in building automation and energy management solutions, today announced that it has introduced six new models of its Allure EC-Smart-Vue Series communicating room sensor, now with integrated CO2 and motion sensors.
The Allure EC-Smart-Vue communicating sensor is designed to interface with Distech Controls’ BACnet® ECB Series and LONWORKS® ECL Series controllers. It offers an industry-leading and contemporary design, and includes a backlit display and icon-driven menu. The EC-Smart-Vue is suitable for VAV, fan coil, roof top, heat pump, and unit vent room control applications.
By combining multiple sensors – temperature, humidity, CO2, and motion – in a single unit, the Allure EC-Smart-Vue reduces time and installation costs since only one room device needs be mounted, wired, and commissioned. The four-in-one communicating sensor offers additional energy savings compared to other sensing solutions as it supports both demand-controlled ventilation and occupancy-based control strategies for HVAC and lighting. Moreover, its built-in CO2 sensor contributes to maintaining indoor air quality, optimizing occupant comfort and productivity.
“With the addition of these new Allure EC-Smart-Vue models to our product line-up, Distech Controls continues to deliver innovative products that help increase energy efficiency while providing cost-effective solutions for building owners,” comments David Gill, Vice President, Products and Marketing. “Building operators will find the EC-Smart-Vue with CO2 and motion sensors to be an excellent complement to their energy control strategies.”
The EC-Smart-Vue also features the innovative ECO-Vue™ leaf pattern, which graphically indicates energy consumption in real time to promote occupants’ energy conscious behavior.
